DO YOU STRUGGLE WITH DRY SKIN?

Do you struggle with dry skin? We know how uncomfortable this can be. Scaling, itching, cracking - none of it feels good. Dry skin occurs for a variety of reason and is common amongst many. Before crafting LINNÉ, our founder Jenna suffered from skin so dry and itchy she’d bled and bruise from scratching in her sleep. Dermatitis is a medical term for extremely dry skin and there are a variety of types of dermatitis. Contact dermatitis results when the skin is exposed to an allergic substance. Seborrheic dermatitis occurs when your skin produces too much oil, resulting in a scaly rash. Lastly, atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema, causes the skin to experience dry scaly patches. Another medical condition resulting in dry skin is psoriasis....

AROMATHERAPY WITH RISE & REST

The sense of smell taps into one of the most ancient parts of the brain. This area, known as the amygdala serves as the brain’s emotional center. It is largely responsible for the creation of new memories which explains why scent, memory and emotion are so interconnected.Aroma arrives in the amygdala by way of volatile aromatic molecules. These are released by the essential oils present in all LINNÉ formulas. These tiny airborne molecules travel through the nose to the olfactory bulb. From there they move through the bloodstream to the limbic system where the amygdala is located. Their presence signals the release of neurochemicals that trigger a response that can be stimulating or relaxing depending on the essential oils used.Essential...

OIL IS NOT THE ENEMY AFTER ALL...

Every skincare campaign of my youth made oil out to be the enemy. Every product was "oil-free" and formulated to strip acne-prone skin of all sebum present. We now know that oil can be a friend to even greasy and acne-prone skin and that formulas such as our BALANCE face oil have proven to restore skin health and clarity. Nevertheless, today, even as face oilshave become ubiquitous, there still remain several myths we'd like to bust:Myth 1: Oily skin should skip oil.Truth: The right oils, such as jojoba and hazelnut can help regulate sebum production. Oils also help lock in moisture leaving your skin hydrated and nourished, rather than dehydrated and greasy. Research also shows that people with acne have...

WHAT IS A SKINCARE ROUTINE MADE UP OF?

At LINNÉ we believe that a proper skincare routine goes beyond skin deep. That includes choosing the right products that not only serve your skin superficially, but that properly nourish and protect cellular functioning. Moreover, as a baseline, they should be safe for use on your largest organ.Proper skincare also means having a healthy state of mind. Mental well-being has a significant effect on skin health. Emotions such as stress and anxiety trigger the release of cortisol and adrenaline into the body, causing an increase in oil production and thus resulting in acne breakouts. Stress also causes internal inflammation, which can impact the balance of bacteria in our gut. Internal inflammation manifests externally as conditions such as acne, eczema, rosacea, and psoriasis....
