Enessa makes high quality skincare using plants, flowers, and natural actives that contain vitamins to nourish and feed your skin the same way that eating healthy food nourishes your body. When you use a product like Enessa’s, the reason you can see such a difference in your skin is because it’s straight up nutrition- everything good, no fillers, and nothing toxic. If your skin is your body’s largest organ, and what’s used on it penetrates to our blood stream, why wouldn’t we want to incorporate vitamins and omegas to feed it? Enessa is among the purest and most stable formulas around and one that I’ve used (with great results) in the past. Here are 4 of their star ingredients that you should know about if you want to get a glowing complexion, naturally.
Moringa is so precious and expensive you rarely see it as the first ingredient in a serum like this one has. It’s an excellent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, bacteria-reducing oil that heals wounds and damaged skin. Moringa Replenish Elixir $60 moisturizes, softens, and makes my skin literally glow. It also has jojoba and meadowfoam seed oils, two non-comedogenic oils known to be high in vitamin e and fatty acids yet remain breathable and light. It’s a completely decadent serum, one that leaves behind a slight slip and changes the texture of your skin. It made my face soft as silk and my makeup looked better and went on more evenly. When I moved on to test another skincare line I could tell that my skin lost that glow and luster. I’ve reintroduced it again and will continue to incorporate it into my routine- it’s such a special serum.
Neroli oil comes from the blossoms of a bitter orange tree and has been used for literally centuries to rejuvenate even the most sensitive skin with its natural vitamin c and anti-inflammatory properties. It calms acne-prone or sensitive skin and preps it for hydration. This HydraTone ($39) mist is awesome- light, hydrating, and versatile. I use it after cleansing and pre-serum and I also spray a little on my foundation brush to easily buff in color making it look seamless and more natural.
In Southeast Asia, Tamanu trees are everywhere. They bloom twice a year and develop a fruit with kernels inside that are dried for months until they breakdown into the dark oil. It’s used to accelerate healing for any type of skin problem and has been so well studied that its abilities are legendary. This Rose Tamanu Oil ($70) for the eyes is mixed in a base of jojoba and omega-rich rosehip oil that make for a unique eye serum that quenches thirsty skin and hydrates that delicate area for hours.
If you’re oily or even a little shiny in your t-zone, this aloe and tea tree based serum will work to reduce shine. Juniper Sebum Control $49 feels so light and disappears immediately. It’s the right amount of moisture for anyone who wants to keep their skin clear and hydrated. I use it on my nose and chin to keep shine away, places that don’t need such intense hydration anyway. Juniper is one of the better anti-inflammatory and antiseptic oils around, it keeps skin free of bacteria and feeling clean without drying it out.
