Mastering the delicate art of "skin balance" to maintain the equilibrium of moisture, oil, and pH levels that keep skin healthy and radiant is important. Yet, this equilibrium often teeters on the edge due to a diverse cast of culprits, including genetics, environmental elements, allergies, and immune system intricacies. These instances lead to severe breakouts and the skin might appear crimson or parched with flaking dermis that disrupts this delicate equilibrium. To put it by, your skin starts having its own meltdown!
But it is always 'better late than never' to undo this skin meltdown.
During such episodes, what helps reset the skin is a comprehensive rejuvenation guide curated with the right kind of skincare ingredients and personalised dermatologist recommendations.
Cystic acne is the formidable foe of your clear skin. These deep, painful cysts lurk beneath the surface and are triggered by hormonal changes, genetics, and overzealous oil glands. To combat this relentless enemy that can pop up anywhere on the body, you can adopt skincare and lifestyle changes that not only tackle but also bid adieu to those stubborn acne scars left behind.
For the ultimate "skin reset," a gentle exfoliating body cleanser that swoops in with Salicylic Acid, diving into pores like a superhero dissolving dead cells, and unclogging the chaos is a must. This is followed up with a nourishing and repairing body lotion that has Niacinamide, Fatty Acids and Lipids, Vitamin E and Aquaporin is just the buffet your skin needs.
Red and painful stinging
You may experience inflammation caused by mischief-makers like allergies, insect bites, sunburn, or run-ins with irritating substances. An important thing to remember is that the stinging indicates that the skin's natural protective barrier has been compromised. The primary way to tackle this is to remove everything from your routine that you were using before the flare-up and replace them with ultra-gentle, non-active products.
Using a sunscreen with SPF 55+ PA ++++Broad Spectrum UV Protection is important to protect the skin against UVA and UVB rays.
Dry & Scaly Skin
Dry, flaky skin can result from a lack of moisture and natural oils often exacerbated by factors like harsh weather, hot showers, or specific skincare products.
To alleviate dryness, you can adopt a skincare routine featuring gentle cleansers rich in Vitamin B5, and a moisturiser with Ceramides, Amino Acids and Lipids to help replenish your skin’s barrier and give it the much-needed reinforcement. All of this would be incomplete without a hydrating serum that has Niacinamide + Probiotics + Antioxidants, which breathes life and radiance into the skin.
Maintaining the skin's pH balance is vital, as it helps protect against issues like dryness and breakouts, ensuring a healthy and radiant complexion. It is also advisable to get a recommendation from a dermatologist as they can help identify any underlying medical concerns.
While all of this is important, you must keep in mind that restoring the skin meltdown cannot be done in a week. It takes a minimum of 27 days to restore the internal health of the skin so that it exudes external radiance and glow with the right choice of skincare products and care.
