02 Jan How To Get Help With Compromised Skin
Good skincare isn’t doesn’t always begin with a blank canvas. Sometimes you need to do some repair work and opt for products that protect as well as nourish. You may have been told that you have compromised skin, but what does that mean? And what can you do about it?
What is compromised skin?
Caused by a number of skin issues and/or medical treatment programmes, compromised skin no longer functions as it should and has the ability to protect and maintain itself. It usually refers to the epidermis (the outer layer), with damaged or compromised skin meaning you may struggle to retain moisture and keep out environmental toxins. All of this means that you will need to select skincare products that can help to support healthy skin function, while also supporting repair and recovery of your skin.
Skincare products for compromised skin
The base cocktail of this recovery complex combines the highest levels of antioxidants, vitamins, amino acids and minerals. The unique stem cell ingredients for Stem Cell Recovering Complex includes concentrated active ingredients from Echinacea, to stimulate collagen production for a smoother, plumper and youthful appearance, and Summer Lilac to provide powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.
This spray will help to rebalance your skin. It acidifies the skin surface and buffers the pH of the hydrolipid film, stabilises the acid protective coat, and gives the skin more resistance, counteracting an imbalance of the germ flora. It will help to prevent the transition of the skin to an inflammatory stage.
The microbiome is our natural shield; this cream helps to preserve the skin’s own defence mechanisms, combating skin problems caused by imbalances in the skin flora. It promotes the formation of hyaluronic acid in the skin which hydrates and smooths.
