Sensitive Skin: What is sensitive skin?What is Retinol?
Having sensitive skin is a common condition but is not a serious medical diagnosis. About 60-70% of women and 50-60% of men are reported to have sensitive skin.
The term ‘sensitive skin’ is used to describe skin that is prone to certain reactions such as inflammation, itchiness, stinging, burning, redness, or tightness – usually caused by application of cosmetics and personal skin care products. These skin reactions are very treatable and may require a consultation with a dermatologist.
Signs of sensitive skin can be caused by a number of factors such as dehydration, cosmetic products, environment, or an underlying condition. Some signs of sensitive skin include:
- Rough, flaky patches
- Peeling skin
- Open sores or yellow crust over the skin
Sensitive Skincare Treatment
The sensitive skincare treatment is suitable for people who have very sensitive skin or skin that is prone to allergy. It is also suitable for people who are experiencing a rash or sudden skin reaction.
Several different steps are done to calm down your skin from any inflammation. Part of the treatment is using soothing gels and serum which help in relaxing the skin and treating inflammation. Even people with the most sensitive skin types are perfect for this treatment.
Cleansing is the first thing to do in the treatment. It is better to use lukewarm water than hot water in cleaning your face, especially for people with sensitive skin.
After cleansing, 2 different soothing masks will be used on your face for a relaxing treatment: 1 mummy mask and 1 soothing diatomaceous earth mask. Both masks cools and calm down inflamed skin.
Moisturizing is a very important step in making sure your skin’s moisture barrier is maintained and helps in preventing environmental damage to your skin. One of the signs of sensitive skin is having dry and flaky skin. Moisturizing the skin can reduce the chance of developing dryness and oiliness. It is also necessary to help maintain a healthy and younger-looking skin.
LED Healing light (laser) will be used in this treatment to calm down your skin through scientifically proven LED light therapy. We will apply both recovery cream and sunscreen as the last steps of the treatment.
