Our bodies are finely tuned machines where all the parts work together to create a perfect balance so it can perform at optimal level. When the balance in any area is disrupted, it has an effect until the issue is resolved and balance is restored. The skin is no different, and being the largest organ in the human body, it needs a lot of care to maintain.
Sensitive or sensitized skin is a prime example of skin out of balance, for which there is a number of contributing factors, from lifestyle to genetics. For example, when the lipid barrier layer (which maintains water balance and protects against environmental stimuli) isn’t maintained, this can lead to sensitization, inflammation and even disease from microbes, chemicals and physical factors.
Fortunately, the UltraCalming Complex in the Dermalogica UltraCalming range, contains active botanical extracts which can help control inflammation and reduce the signs of sensitivity, irritation and redness, without interrupting the positive effects of the body’s defences, including wound healing and bacterial defence.
A few products we recommend from the UltraCalm range, would be;
- UltraCalming Cleanser – An extremely gentle, ph balanced gel/cream, cleanses without stripping the skin’s protection barrier.
- Calm Water Gel – This water-gel moisturizer hydrates while forming a weightless barrier against environmental assault.
Not in the UltraCalm range but a product worth mentioning as it is suitable for all skin types, would be:
Daily Microfoliant – A unique, rice-based, enzyme powder with botanical brightening complex, microfoliates dulling debris and instantly leaves skin noticeably smoother and brighter.
