Discover Equiva: The New No-Stress Solution for Sensitive Skin
Caring for sensitive skin
For those with sensitive skin, introducing products into a routine can be a gamble because they tend to experience skin dryness, roughness, tightness, irritation, itching, or burning more often than other skin types. These symptoms are related to having skin that is vulnerable to external irritants and may be triggered by certain ingredients (fragrances, alcohol, etc.) or even environmental factors.
Basically, caring for sensitive skin requires you to avoid irritants as best as you can. Easier said than done, right? Knowing your skin triggers and looking for ways to reduce exposure is just one step, maintaining a good skincare routine is another. After all, sensitive skin still benefits from daily cleansing and moisturizing. How does one keep sensitive skincare simple and stress-free?
EQUIVA™: Skincare for Sensitive Skin
From UL Skin Sciences comes EQUIVA™: a mindfully-formulated sensitive skincare line that puts utmost priority on product formulation, ensuring all its products are safe, effective, and suitable for the needs of sensitive skin. EQUIVA™ believes that healthy skin is beautiful skin, which is why the product line is dermatologist-tested and has non-irritating formulas with a pH level of 5.5.
Why is a pH level of 5.5 important? The skin’s natural pH level is around 5.5 and is necessary to maintain skin hydration, barrier function, and antimicrobial defenses. Imbalanced pH levels can interfere with these functions, causing skin irritation. Because EQUIVA™’s formulation is pH balanced and free from common irritants, you have a stress-free choice for sensitive skin.
A stress-free sensitive skincare routine
Ready to see what a worry-free regime for sensitive skin looks like? Here’s how you can EQUIVA™’s sensitive skincare line into your daily skincare routine:
- Double cleanse with EQUIVA™ Micellar Cleansing Water
No longer just a passing trend, double cleansing– cleansing once with an oil or micellar cleanser then following up with regular cleanser– is definitely here to stay. To ensure that skin is thoroughly cleansed without stripping it of its natural oils, use EQUIVA™ Micellar Cleansing Water in your first step. It gently removes makeup, cleans, soothes and hydrates sensitive facial skin while instantly boosting moisture by 35 percent. It is also alcohol- and paraben-free, making it safe for daily use. Tip: if you have lash extensions or had a lash lift, this micellar is mineral oil-free, which makes it a great makeup remover.
- Cleanse with EQUIVA™ Sulfate-free Facial Cleanser
After removing excess dirt and makeup in the first step, follow up with Equiva Sulfate-free facial cleanser. This cleanser is a dermatologist-tested non-irritating water based formula with a pH level of 5.5, which helps in achieving healthier skin. It soothes and hydrates facial skin.
- Keep skin moisturized throughout the day with EQUIVA™ Moisturizing Facial Mist
For regular moisturization even when on the go, use Equiva Moisturizing Facial Mist. This moisturizing face mist has a dermatologist-tested non-irritating formula with a pH level of 5.5, which helps in achieving healthier skin. It helps reduce oiliness while significantly increasing skin hydration in as early as the 5th day of continued use.
