Our skincare philosophy follows the principle that your body, and skin as an extension, is always working to achieve balance. Outside factors like stress, diet, environmental circumstances, cosmetic and topical products affect this natural balance and will show imbalance through dryness, acne, redness, and excess oil.
If you have sensitive skin, it’s important the address the problem by taking a holistic approach for the best long-term results.
3 Tips for Sensitive Skin
Tip #1 – Get Your Fish Oil (Omega-3 Fatty Acid)
By supplying your body with healthy fats, you combat inflammation in the whole body, as well as in the skin. Omega-3’s help to maintain the fluidity of the cell membranes and is especially beneficial to skin prone to rosacea and dryness. A pure fish oil supplement is a great way to get the Omega-3 you need each day; and eat a healthy diet by adding avocado, raw nuts, and olive oil.
Tip #2 – Avoid Sugar, Replace Your Collagen
We all know the importance of collagen in the skin—combined with elastin, it’s what makes skin plump, supple and strong. When your body is blitzed with sugar molecules, they attach to lipids and proteins causing them to become weak, discolored and less supple. This is a process known as glycation. Sugar is our enemy when it comes to aging. Sugar creates free-radicals and makes our cells abnormal, a process that increases exponentially as we age.
Combat these processes with Amino Collagen C with Hyaluronic Acid. Fish peptide collagen absorbs easily into the body—replacing your natural collagen stores that support healthy skin structure. Hyaluronic acid maintains skin moisture, while vitamin C combats free radicals. This is the perfect way to reduce both sensitive skin and skin aging from the inside out.
Tip #3 – Don’t Over-Process Your Skin
The most impactful way we can cause imbalance in our skin, and thus, sensitivity, is by over-cleansing, over-exfoliating, over-moisturizing, over-toning, and overdoing it! By killing both living and non-living cells, our skin fights back with redness, acne, oil, dryness, and wrinkles.
Work with your skin’s natural instincts by using only natural, bio-recognized ingredients on your skin. When cleansing, don’t destroy your skin’s natural lipid barrier with harsh chemicals. Opt for gentle exfoliants that use gentle AHA acids or jojoba beads that avoid over-penetrating the skin. Natural ingredients in toners and moisturizers will compliment your skin’s natural processes and prevent a retaliation of oil, acne, or redness.
Bonus Tip: MSM is a natural way to control skin inflammation and quell skin sensitivity.
