Sensitised SkinSkin redness and irritation is often caused by sun-exposure and external factors, such as free radicals. DermaFix has formulated a variety of specialist products to help soothe and calm red, inflamed, and sensitised skin, to restore a healthy skin complexion.
Calm Skin Sensitivity with the DermaFix sensitive skin care range
Introduction to sensitised skin and how to identify symptoms
A diminished immune response can be genetic or exacerbated by various factors.
- Excessive sun exposure
- Environmental toxins
- Poor nutrition and a lack of protein
- Harsh soaps and some cosmetics
- Cigarette smoke, inhaled or second hand, constricts the blood vessels, which reduces the amount of oxygen reaching skin tissue
Sensitivity is often triggered by a warning signal from the Langerhans cells, receptors that register the presence of foreign agents and toxins in the skin. The Langerhans cells stimulate an allergy response, known as a histamine reaction when they come in contact with skin irritants.
To attempt to calm sensitised skin and to “Turn the Red off” irritated and reddened skin needs a skin care professional who understands the reactive nature of this skin care concern.
DermaFix ACC Copper has a soothing and calming effect, ensure to use a correct DermaFix cleanser and stay away from the use of soap based products.
