Sensitive Irriitated Skin

Sensitive skins are becoming more common.  People with sensitive skins have a reduced tolerance to the environment, skincare products etc, and often experience sensations such as:

  • discomfort
  • stinging or burning
  • hot, itchy skin
  • redness and irritation
  • dry skin with a tendency to flush
  • allergies to skincare products

Once a sensitive skin is triggered, it is more prone to over-react to many things. The acid mantle is often impaired. The acid mantle is a natural protective film which covers and protects the entire skin's surface.  It is made from secretions from the sebaceous (oil) glands and sudiferous (sweat) glands. An impaired acid mantle causes a reduced immune system of the skin, often resulting in the skin being:

  • slow to heal
  • often very fine, easily irritated and uncomfortable
  • very dry

Causes may include:

  • Essential fatty acid deficiency - a lack of "good" oils in the diet
  • Insufficient water
  • UV damage
  • Hormonal changes
  • Incorrect skincare products

To repair the acid mantle, it is important to:

  • Have sufficient essential fatty acids in your diet eg fish or flaxseed oil
  • Use skincare products especially formulated to reduce inflammation, repair and strengthen the skin:

Treatment results with our clients have shown that long term use of topical Vitamin A, C and antioxidants strengthen the skin's defences, and strengthen the collagen and elastin tissue surrounding the weak blood capillaries, which leads to a huge improvement in sensitive irritated skin.

Vitamin A

  • is a skin repairer and improves the healing process
  • repairs UV damage and the DNA of the cells
  • strengthens fine skin
  • improves the quality of collagen and elastin

Vitamin C

  • reduces high colour
  • repairs UV and free radical damage
  • improves capillary strength
  • improves the quantity of collagen and elastin

Environ skin care products contain high levels of Vitamin A, C, along with antioxidants including betacarotene, green tea, lycopene and growth factors to enable the skin to regain optimum health.

For sensitive irritated skin problems we will work with you to develop an individual skin improvement plan to suit your lifestyle, budget and treatment expectations.  This requires regular consistent clinic treatments and a commitment to home care.
