1ST SKIN KNOWLEDGE

The fact that dry skin is particularly sensitive and tends to redness is not uncommon: the disturbed skin barrier on which dry skin is based also promotes increased sensitivity and visible redness.

Causes:

  • Dry skin develops because the sebaceous glands of the skin produce too little sebum.
  • The skin's own protective layer, the so-called skin-lipid barrier, gets holes.
  • The balance of the skin is disturbed, the skin moisture evaporates too quickly to the outside (transepidermal water loss, abbreviated TEWL).
  • A distinction is made between dry and dehydrated skin - both lack moisture.
  • The lipid coat is disturbed in dry and dehydrated skin.

background
  • The nerve cells of the hypersensitive skin react with above-average sensitivity to external and internal stimuli.
  • These include wind, sun or cold as well as spicy food, alcohol, stress or unsuitable care.
  • Not all these stimuli are noticeable externally - often only the affected person feels a sting, itching or burning sensation.
symptoms
  • The visible symptoms of sensitive skin include redness and a dry, possibly scaly skin surface.
  • 10% of Germans are affected by a chronic skin disease called rosacea.
  • Couperose as a preliminary stage manifests itself in visibly enlarged veins.
  • Even "only" sensitive skin suffers from redness for hours or days.
  • If redness occurs frequently or constantly, even if it initially only affects small skin areas, we always recommend a visit to a dermatologist. Only he can decide whether drug therapy is necessary and sensible beyond the normal daily care.

2. CARE ROUTINE

Care recommendation for the morning:

For the following care recommendations, we have selected particularly gentle and barrier-strengthening HighDroxy products which, among other things, rely on the proven soothing effect of DEFENSIL® active ingredients. In addition, make sure that you avoid fragrances, preservatives and colourings as well as skin-irritating alcohol in your cosmetics.

  1. Clean your skin very mildly - with the CALM CLEANSER. It respects the skin lipid barrier and moisturizes the skin. If you only want to cleanse your face once a day, please do not cleanse it in the morning.
  2. Depending on the moisture requirements of your skin, HYDRO SPRAY forms an ideal basis for subsequent care after cleansing. It hydrates and soothes the skin.
  3. IN:FUSE is a light, fluid-like skin care serum which, in addition to its wrinkle-reducing properties, also has a barrier-strengthening effect.
  4. An excellent addition to IN:FUSE is RE:STORE, as it is extremely nourishing and moisturizing.
  5. Especially dry and sensitive skin should be effectively protected against UV radiation during the day. D-FENCE 50 is our ultra-light care oil with its high-dose, soothing DEFENSIL® complex. It protects with SPF 50. D-FENCE 50 can be applied pure (after the spray) - it is best combined with IN:FUSE or RE:STORE.
Care recommendation for the evening:
  1. Use CALM CLEANSER and/ or HYDRO SPRAY
  2. Use IN:FUSE in combination with RE:STORE or alternatively:
  3. The CALM BALM. It has skin-soothing, anti-inflammatory properties and reduces redness. Distribute the balm first in the palms of your hands and then press it in with your flat hands - this reduces the physical stimulus when applying to a minimum.
  4. If necessary, enrich CALM BALM with LIPID'OR Facial Oil, which contains a total of 15 different high-quality care oils, including the proven irritation-reducing oils of the DEFENSIL® group.
  5. Extra care tip for the eye area: The extra rich eye mask EYE LOVE relaxes and soothes the sensitive skin around the eyes. Eye shadows are reduced.
