Sensitive, Rosacea & Psoriasis Skin type
Sensitive, Rosacea & Psoriasis Prone Skin Type Overview
Do you feel your skin is extremely sensitive, itchy or suffer from ruddiness, be it from increased sun exposure, stress, lifestyle, allergies and/or environmental factors?
Sensitive skin is caused by a weaker or thinner lipid barrier. The purpose of the lipid barrier is to lock in hydration and to protect the skin from damaging agents such as UV rays, wind, heat, and harsh chemicals. People with sensitive skin are more exposed to irritants which penetrate the skin and cause inflammation. Additionally, a weak and thin lipid barrier makes it easier for moisture to escape which results in dryness, another characteristic of sensitive skin.
Conditions such as Rosacea and Psoriasis, often resulting in redness of the face or that burning sensation of the skin, can take a toll on your inner peace. Treating sensitive skin typically involves identifying and eliminating any triggers.
The Skin Soothing Collection
These skin types benefit from gentle cleansing and regular exfoliation as well as hydrating and nourishing treatments to protect them from further irritation. Stick with products that are gentle, fragrance-free, and have a fairly simple ingredient list. Remember to always do patch tests in areas like your inner arms, neck or the sides of your face before trying a new product to ensure that it’s safe and does not upset your skin.
By using specially formulated products with calming and soothing ingredients such as arnica, green tea and comfrey you will be able to gently remove impurities while restoring your skin’s harmony for the ultimate comfort sensation. They are all present in our Skin Soothing Collection.
