Compromised barrier function, hormonal imbalance, bacterial infection, over active immune response, unbalanced lifestyle and stress all contribute to the health of your skin. Beside drinking enough fluids, and eating a diet rich macro and micro nutrients topical application of products can ensure that the skin is adequately nourished and hydrated.
Optimal functioning barrier is the first step to achieving even texture, tone and brightness.
REDNESS The most common triggers that are not product-related are extremes of weather (both heat and cold), caffeine, spicy foods, chocolate, stress and over exfoliation. Skin disorders that are responsible for facial redness are: Rosacea, Atopic dermatitis/Eczema and over exfoliation, to name a few. DRYNESS Without adequate hydration your skin’s barrier function is compromised. This can lead to Atopic dermatitis (eczema). If you’re prone to develop this condition, excessive dryness can lead to activation of the disease, causing redness, cracking and inflammation.
SENSITIVITY Redness, pain, scaling, itching, and other similar symptoms are signs this reaction is taking place. This is not to be confused with the application of very active products that are designed to activate the skin. Overly sensitive skins should ease into active product use. If your immune system is way too sensitive to a specific substance, it can cause a skin allergy over time. ACNE It’s the substances and underlying causes of clogged pores that differentiate inflamed acne from non-inflamed acne. Inflamed acne consists of swelling, redness, and pores that are deeply clogged with bacteria, oil, and dead skin cells. Non abrasive exfoliation, oil balancing and anti inflammatory actives aid in managing inflammatory acne. Should topical intervention not yield remarkable results, prescription medication needs to be included in the treatment protocol. Consult your medical professional for a suitable pharmaceutical medicine.
