Skin Care and the Nourishing Power of Plants

The skin is the body’s largest organ, and most of us spend the better part of our lifetime either ignoring it or “caring” for it in ways that inhibit its own natural ability to mend and repair itself. Evan Healy takes a different approach. As a trained aesthetician, Evan believes in the skin’s ability to achieve optimal balance with just a minimum of help. All the products in her evanhealy line are made from organic, plant-based ingredients, and there are no perfumes added.

Each of the three regimens includes a wash,
spray tonic water, treatment serum, a day moisturizer, and a treatment mask. Choose from the Rose set for mature skin with fine lines or wrinkles, the Blue set for sensitive skin, or the Blemish Treatment set for teens/acne-prone skin. We tested each set thoroughly — and all of our testers saw positive improvements in their skin.

While we would’ve been intrigued just based upon the holistic approach and natural ingredients, it’s hard to argue with across-the-board skin improvements. Another endorsement for evanhealy skin care comes from journalists Siobhan O’Connor and Alexandra Spunt, who just wrote a tell-all book about today’s cosmetics industry. No More Dirty Looks: The Truth About Your Beauty Products and the Ultimate Guide to Safe and Clean Cosmetics shares insider secrets from scientists and dermatologists, plus it lists Siobhan and Alexandra’s choices for the best clean makeup, hair care, and skin care products – including evanhealy.

Evanhealy skin care may well change your mind about what it means to have beautiful skin.

    I know how important it is to look your best and how confusing the multitude of skin care product choices can be. As a holistic aesthetician I’ve found that the most important things I can do are help women understand the reality of how their skin works, why it doesn’t make sense to use harsh acid treatments, and how you can learn to take better care of your skin using the simple wisdom of plants without resorting to harmful or invasive procedures. Let me know what questions you have.

    Hi Evan, It is interesting that you mention "harsh acid treatments." I have very fair (mature) skin and protect it from the sun...that being said, over the past year the skin above my cheekbones and around my eyes would start to burn whenever I washed it or put any kind of cream on it. I even tried several of the expensive department brands. My doc told me to take a little baby shampoo mixed with water and dap it on...that even burned. The antibiotic ointments did not work but the A & D ointment(for baby's bottom)did help. As it healed, you could tell my skin actually burned. I am thrilled beyond words to find you. I noticed you have very beautiful skin and was wondering how long you have been using these products??? Also, do you have a body lotion???

    Hi Dianne,

    Thank you for your comment...and I have been using simple plant based products for 25 years! Many years ago, as I was training as a skin therapist, I discovered that there was simply no good long term results from skin care lines that featured harsh acids and synthetic chemicals and petroleum oils. As a holistic aesthetician, I had to walk my talk and get glorious results for my clients too. I found that the less I used on my own skin and my clients skin, in terms of synthetic chemicals and cosmeceuticals, the more the skin would respond in a positive way - and over the years this "less is more" method stood the test of time. The Sample Kits are the absolute best way of demonstrating the beneficial relationship between our skin and the very wise healing nature of plants.

    @Cheryl - I'm not sure it's organic that equates with expensive but 'Responsibly Made and Truly Effective' sometimes does! If you don't love the skin you're in you could try the less expensive sampler kit and determine whether or not the results are worth it to you!

    Hi Claudia,

    Your skin condition would be best suited to the Blue Line, which features soothing, anti-inflamative oils of blue chamomile and lavender. Make sure that, after you cleanse and apply the two pumps of antioxidant-rich RoseHip Oil Serum, that you *saturate* your skin with the Lavender Facial Tonic Hydrosol. It is a key player in maintaining much needed hydration on sensitive skin...Cheers, Evan

    I'm a huge fan, as I was one of the testers who is now a loyal user of evanhealy every am and pm.

    Cheryl: you can try this line out for $29.95 and that tester set lasted both Kate and I over 4 weeks! A little goes a long way and you will still see a positive difference in your skin. Concerning the $114 - $119 price for the full set, that is also a phenomenal value considering you get the following: wash, spray tonic, serum, moisturizer & mask for weekly treatments.

    From my research, you can get a 2 oz jar of day cream from one of the big name brands sold at a department store for $230. That is for just one product in the line and those department store brands are not all organic and plant based (Lord knows what is in them).

    The evanhealy products impressed us on how well the performed, the fact that they are all natural and that they are a good value.

    If I may add one more comment...if a product gets the Daily Grommet stamp of approval, that is good enough for me. I actually think it is better than the Good Housekeeping seal of approval because I can see and hear the reviews. If I have a question I know I will get a response from a familiar face and I knkow they have tried the product personally. They have never steered my wrong.

    I'm sorry this is not more clear on the drop down menu and we will update it.

    The travel set is the sample set and it is $29.95 for Blue and Rose, while the blemish sample travel kit is $33.95.

    Diane -- First of all, what a nice compliment. Better than Good Housekeeping-- Wow - Thanks.

    I will let Evan elaborate, but it is my understanding that Evan wants the skin to breathe at night, so you use the wash, tonic and serum at night (no moisturizer and no night cream). There is no night cream in the sets. I have just been using the eye cream in the am, as well. Hope that helps.

    Hi Dianne,

    Our Chamomile Eye Cream is for day time use. Moisture around the eyes at night, when the body is at rest and releasing metabolic impurities, often results in swollen puffy eye lids. The reason I haven't made an evening moisturizer is that it goes against my philosophy of 'Less is More'. Night time moisturizers are often much heavier, thicker and oilier than their day time counterpart and they literally weigh the skin down creating swelling and puffiness, especially around the eye area. It's been my experience as an aesthetician that the skin, a self regulating organ, needs to breathe at night and the less you use at night the cleaner, clearer, more vibrant your skin will be.

    Seasonal exceptions are in wintertime when I recommend for dry/sensitive conditions to use one pump of one of our Oil Serums: Rose or Blue, in combination with saturating mists of our Facial Tonic Hydrosols: Lavender or ROse Geranium...cheers, Evan

    Yes, Wendy so right - The Skin Breathes! It has a rhythm, an inhalation and an exhalation. It's made up of millions of tiny dermal passages regulating the inward movement of air, fluids heat and light, In healthy skin these passages are unobstructed and each breath activates the absorption of nutritive substances and stimulates vital functions of a restorative nature. Plants are our biological counterparts, they exhale oxygen and inhale carbon dioxide purifying our environment and providing diverse nutrients to our skin. I love the expression: 'trees are the lungs of the earth'...evan

    Hi Evan, I'm 59 yrs old with combi-skin types: sensitive in certain areas, oily around my nose and dry at temples. Your Rose line is my first choice, yet the Blue sounds right for me too. How long will each travel kit last? I'd like to try them both separately and w/ the change in season, my skin is struggling to balance. Thank you so much for developing healthy, friendly, wonderful products, Evan! And, thank you Daily Grommet!

    9/24/10 4:02 PM

    Hi Maureen,

    In your case, because your skin's current condition sounds predominantly 'combination' (oily/dry) I would suggest starting with the harmonizing Rose Selection. The Kits will each last an average of 7-14 days of regular use, and sometimes longer! After you have used it completely and if you wish to switch, just to compare, feel free! The Kits are an economical choice to use while testing the products and i have designed them to last for a long enough period of time to get an authentic 'feel' for them...

    I encourage my customers to follow their intuition when choosing between the two lines. But ultimately regardless of whether you choose Rose or Blue, I designed the products to work and encourage balance, my products are so adaptogenic and encourage the skin to self regulate and it is the balance of the various nutritive, bio-diverse and sustainably sourced plant oils, botanicals, serums and natural clays that each work together to harmonize, restoring skin to its healthy function and glow.

    thank you and cheers, Evan

    My daughter is 10 and has been breaking out for several months. Terrible acne runs in my husbands family, you might even call it cystic acne. He and his sister both have scars and rosacea. Of course I would like to prevent my daughter from that fate but genes are genes. So far she is limited to the t-zone for her break outs. She has been using the Biore products and if she actually keeps up with them it does a decent job. I would like something less chemical for her but I do not know if it will be as effective. Being 10 she doesn't always do the job every day so I hesitate to invest in the products you offer if the results won't be similar to the Biore system. Is there any way to get an idea of what to expect from your acne system? How much improvement is usual?

  • Evan Healy
    Evan Healy
    9/24/10 5:50 PM

    Hi Letha,

    Yes, you're right, when acne runs in the family it increases the possibility of your children having it. The best way to treat acne is with a dual pronged approach of sensible skin care and dietary -especially sugar- awareness. If you suspect she is dealing with *cystic* acne I would encourage that you get additional guidance from a nutritionist or other health care provider to help with diet, stress and hormones since they can be so central to skin health.

    I have had very positive results with acne by using our Blemish Kit selection of products. The Blemish ROll-On, Clay Mask and Tea Tree Gel Cleanser specifically and used consistently will help to disinfect the pore opening while also drawing metabolic impurities out of tiny dermal pores and absorbing excess oil. As an aesthetician we often saw acne and cystic acne, and I wanted to offer alternative and holistic solutions to all the synthetic chemical acne treatment lines. Most synthetic chemical acne 'control' lines aim to block, counteract or suppress the skin's inherent need to release metabolic impurities - this only drives the disease process deeper into the body and the infection is never resolved - only "controlled".

    Because every *body* is different: their digestion/assimilation/elimination, stress levels, hormones, genetics, consistency of use of products, etc, it is very difficult to guarantee results, that said, I can assure you that my selection works holistically to encourage the skin to regulate and release toxins in a safe manner.

    It is my belief that acne is the picture of a VERY sensitive skin condition which really goes against the standard norm of treating this highly sensitive condition by using harsh, scrubs, acids or dermabrasion to treat acne and is exactly the wrong thing to do. It simply aims at a constellation of symptoms, and does nothing to target the systemic cause of acne. All you end up doing, by just treating the skin, is shooting the messenger.

    I hope this helps.

    Cheers, Evan

    I finally am in town long enough to open up my Evan Healy sampler pack I'd ordered two weeks ago. I was saving it up as a "treat". After my first use, I am stunned at how soft my skin feels. I couldn't bear to put makeup on...I don't want to ruin the new feeling. Stay tuned for further results....

    So I liked the results from the trial so much that I went and bought the whole full size kit. I went with Blue. My skin is somehow clearer and softer. The one big adjustment I had to make was not using a nighttime moisturizer. Just the tonic and serum. It took me two weeks to accept that particular change. Finally, even though I am Daily Grommet CEO, I would not change my skin care routine very easily. I really was compelled to try because of team reaction.

    My daughter came home for college break completely stressed out and her face completely broken out. I gave her the Blemish Kit which I was saving for Christmas. It was like a miracle! Within two days her skin was clearing beyond belief. She couldn't be more thrilled! The natural ingredients have soothed her face from all the combinations of over the counter treatments she had been using to remedy her acne. Mother and Daughter HIGHLY recommend evanhealy blemish treatment! THANK YOU, evanhealy.

    I am 44 and have been dealing with minor cystic acne for many years. It's mostly located around my mouth and chin area. I went on Accutane about 6 years ago and had good results. The acne stayed away for quite awhile. This past year it has returned, not full force, but enough to be annoying. I have recently been taking Clarivis for this problem, which is basically the same as Accutane. The skin side effects are dry skin, chapped lips, and dry nose. I have a daily moisturizer with an spf, but I'm not sure what to use at night. I don't want sunscreen on my face at night. I have to use something though to soothe the dryness and tightness. What would you recommend from your line? Also, do you offer a daily moisturizer that contains sunscreen?

    @Gina: Although it is not my intention to pass judgment, I usually discourage people (especially teens) from taking as disruptive a drug as Accutane. I have written a blog specifically about it here: http://www.evanhealy.com/blog/show/26

    In this blog I explain that it has been my experience that combining two such diametrically opposed philosophies: natural skin care as opposed to pharmaceutical, are often not very successful, they inherently work at cross purposes.

    One works specifically to encourage the skin to release metabolic byproducts – and the other specifically to block, counteract and/or suppress the skin’s inherent releasing action.

    When they experience side effects, which they almost always do, I suggest that they ask their doctor for an appropriate skin treatment, one that works both with their prescription, and also that eases their desperately dry and dehydrated condition.

    I agree so much!!! I was on Accutane and had my hair fall out, and it didn't "fix" my skin, either. I was also on every other drug known to man for skin, some of which "worked" but I felt that the risks were too great and went off of them. I went raw vegan for 2 years and have become very aware of chemicals in my body, and my body is very communicative with me at this point, and does NOT like them!!! So I have finally, after years and years, come to the place where I am ready to take a completely holistic approach. I came across your comment, and had never thought about the fact that chemical drugs or products are, a you say, specifically to block, counteract or suppress the skin's releasing action---and are at counter-ends to natural methods--I had been thinking that I was simply "helping out" or "adding to" the natural process by using topicals, and will do so no longer because A) I'm way too sensitive to them, and B) they and are counter productive. Thanks so much for your eye-opening comment.

    @lori: I found this information from Evan:

    A weekly clay mask is an essential part of caring for the skin naturally. Along with the two other essentials – oil and water – they combine to form a trio of exceptionally effective, natural skin care treatments.

    The traditional therapeutic Clay Mask consists of the essentials, Clay and Water mixed together to create a creamy consistency. Clay is a natural, activating substance and will increase oxygenation and blood circulation to the area where it is applied. While this activity can sometimes feel itchy and create redness, it is not harmful. Once the clay is removed, and a Moisturizer or Facial Treatment Serum, with Facial Tonic, is applied, the skin will calm and clear. A clay facial activates deep cleansing of the skin. An ideal preface to a clay treatment mask is to take a few minutes steaming your face over a pot of steamy water that has been brought to a boil.

    Caution: Do not steam your face while the water is boiling!

    While steaming, massage a few drops of one of our Facial Serum oils into congested skin, and/or the T-zone. Or, simply massage all over your face.

    Steam actively penetrates the oil into tiny dermal pores loosening and softening blackheads allowing the clay to draw impurities out of skin.

    HOW TO: Mix about a teaspoon of Clay together with enough water (or Facial Tonic Hydrosol, cooled tea, milk, etc) to create a creamy consistency, and apply all over face (or spot treat). Allow the clay mask to dry completely, then remove mask with generous splashes of cool water. After removing with water, saturate the skin with Facial Tonic Hydrosol, this will reestablish a healthy acidic pH to the skin, press into skin with clean fingers. PLEASE NOTE: Drying times and thickness of the mask can be adjusted to accommodate your skin's current conditions.

    Restore hydration and moisturize by combining two to three drops of our Treatment Serum oil, and layer with more sprays of Facial Tonic hydrosol (this rebalances the skin’s hydro-lipid balance). The skin will completely absorb this hydrating combination, feeling light, toned and glowing with luster.

    Adding Clay to our Cleansing Milks or our Tea Tree Gel:

    In the palm of hand add 1?2 teaspoon (more or less) into either Cleansing Milk or Tea Tree Gel, add dribbles of water, combine and massage into skin to create a mild, detoxifying scrub. Rinse thoroughly with war, then cool, water.

    Clay is appropriate for all skin conditions including sensitive. However, if you are experiencing an active outbreak of rosacea or any form of heightened sensitivity, or a burn, wait until the area has calmed before treating with clay.
