“My skin is so dry and flaky. What can I do”

Wash your face with the Premedicated All Over Body Foam. It is creamy and gentle with a coconut base that hydrates without stripping good oils from your skin. 

Pat dry and brush The Clay Mask evenly over your face, down your neck and on your chest. Moisturising factors Macadamia oil and Shea Butter will hydrate without greasiness. Plant extracts liquorice root, seaweed and manuka honey, will gently free dead skin cells that can cause a flaky appearance, as well as soothe any irritation. Your skin will feel plump, will look restored, brighter and pores will refine to give an even appearance on the skin making any serums, moisturisers or makeup you want to add after easier to blend in.

The Clay Mask is gentle and hydrating enough to use as frequently as you need. It is so nourishing. It doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals that can often aggravate skin and lead to additional problems. Consistent use will help prevent dryness and build up of dead skin cells and you will definitely see a positive change in texture and tone.

“I always wake up congested and puffy around my sinuses. Help!?

In the absence of a cold, flu or sinus infection, the congestion may be an allergic reaction to dust mites, pet fur, pollen or chemicals in your environment. Congestion can also come about through hormonal changes or from dry air, particularly if the air conditioning is on all night. Check your space and consider any root causes that can be removed or altered. 

To assist with decongesting sinuses you can’t go past Blue Mallee Eucalyptus. It is a potent anti-inflammatory that can help deal with mucosal inflammation that leads to the congestionI It is a well known decongestant and effectively liberates the nasal passages.

“My skin is red, itchy and inflamed. How should I treat it?”

Red, itchy skin can feel distracting, irritating and we are often self-conscious about its appearance. 

Cool it down by making a cold compress. In a small bowl, add cold water, maybe even add some ice and 10 drops of ETTO 100% Tea Tree Oil. Douse a flannel and squeeze out. Place the flannel over irritated skin and hold for a few moments, replenishing the flannel with more cold water and repeating a few times. The cold water constricts blood vessels and reduces the flow of blood to the area helping to reduce redness. Tea Tree oil helps to reduce the inflammation and stimulates the healing process by triggering white blood cell activity. 

When in the shower, wash with the Premedicated All Over Body Foam daily. It is gentle and creamy, with antimicrobial coconut and ETTO Tea Tree to relieve irritation and redness. Its plant based formula means no harsh chemicals will aggravate your skin further, so it’s a good everyday essential to prevent skin rashes coming up and keep existing ones at bay.

The next step is to lather the creamy The Skin Balm over the skin, to not only soothe and provide stable hydration, but also to provide a skin barrier. This will help protect the skin from any environmental aggressors including bacteria, pollution and fungal organisms that could be causing its inflammation (which may also be eczema, rosacea, dermatitis, or psoriasis). The Skin balm also has ETTO’s terpinen-4-ol rich Tea Tree oil which has antibacterial properties and helps with reducing the inflammation.
