The year 2020, bought us many challenges, but it also taught us the importance of caring even more for our family, friends and the community around us. So, this year, Ella Baché chooses to celebrate the beauty that surrounds us – but more specifically our Ella Baché Salon Owners and Therapists.

The Eye and Lip Cleanser is beautifully silky smooth and nourishes and hydrates delicate skin around the eye and lip area. Another fabulous stocking filler is the Daily Hydration Mist… it provides 72 hours of lasting hydration whilst refreshing and rehydrating the complexion.
How do I choose the right sunscreen for you?
My recommendation is always choosing and re-applying SPF 50+ for maximum protection against the damages of UVA and UVB. A skin diagnoses will assess your skin type while determining the needs of those whose lifestyles vary.
My personal favourite is the Superfluid Great SPF50+ Medium Beige. An SPF50 + protection packed with the added benefits of free radical fighting antioxidants - Green Tea and Kakadu Plum this all in one primer, hydration source and SPF will become your one stop shop favourite product also.
What is your favourite skincare ingredient and why?
My favourite ingredient is Hyaluronic Acid with instant results and long-term benefits such as fortifying the skin’s natural barrier. It also provides an instant surge of hydration drawing and holding moisture within, leaving the skin plump and rejuvenated.
My favourite product including Hyaluronic Acid is the Hydra Velvety Soft Cream - reducing the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles, whilst saturating the skin with hydration; Skin cells will appear smoother, plumper and brilliantly illuminated.

Applying sunscreen is the last step in your skin care routine!
