Collection: Sensitised Skin

Skin 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.

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. Ensure to use a correct DermaFix cleanser and stay away from the use of soap based products.

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. This constricts the blood vessels, which reduces the amount of oxygen reaching skin tissue 

Protection from Within

Bestow has formulated Berry Beautiful to help us win the fight against free radicals, from the inside out. We come into contact with free radicals every day through radiation from technology, fumes from our cars and even from sun exposure. These little nasties erode health, break down collagen, damage and prematurely age the skin.

Anti-oxidants are the heroes who save the day. These natural compounds neutralise free radicals and interrupt the destructive process of premature ageing. The most potent source of anti-oxidants are brightly coloured fruit and Bestow Berry Beautiful contains an abundant feast of these.

“Berry Beautiful is my delicious solution to the problem of the free-radical exposure we have in our modern lives. It provides a super-anti-oxidant booster, which empowers your body to protect itself from damage.” – Janine Tait

Skin Care for Sensitised Skin

  1. Cleanse with Dermafix Hydra-Silk Cleanser an emollient based milk cleanser, or DermaFix Gentle Cleansing Gel, a mild botanical rich cleanser with anti-inflammatory properties.
  2. Follow with the application of DermaFix Revitalising Toner an important step to prepare the skin for the absorption of active ingredients into the skin.

  5. DermaFix Argan Oil can be applied over the above-mentioned product to alleviate the discomfort associated with dryness and sensitivity.
