Skincare beyond sensitivities and Redness: Let’s peel this Fall season with intentions of the right
results for our skin.
Redness and sensitive skin types react more readily. In this case of genetic disposition,
the blood vessels and nerve endings are more superficial to the skin surface, which makes skin
more sensitive to stimulation. If the skin is over peeled with treatment that also causes
sensitivities and redness because the barrier function in the cells of the skin is compromised
with peeling more frequently in a short amount of time. So, it is crucial that there is a
customized treatment plan in place for each client and the facials are done to benefit with peels
as needed in appropriate time intervals. Frequent irritants to the skin are acids and exfoliants
used too aggressively, AHA (less that 3.00 PH, BHA, - too high or low pH’s, over cleansing and
over exfoliating, heat, cold and dehydration and lastly stimulating treatments and ingredients
not used properly.
In order to treat redness and sensitivities, its important to repair barrier function using
lipid infused products, preventing irritant penetration. Daily usage of soothing agents and
antioxidants to squelch biomedical cascade of inflammation reactions. It is also crucial to use
peptides to reduce swelling and pressure on blood vessels. Lastly, use SPF of at least 50 to avoid
sun damage and provide plenty of hydration to the skin. Avoid strong fragrances, some
essential oils and nail products that may cause sensitivities. Thank you
