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 specialised products to help sooth and calm red, inflamed and sensitised skin, to restore a healthy complexion.

Sensitised skin can either be genetic or caused by compromised immune systems or other external factors, such as:-

  • • Excessive sun exposure
  • • Environmental toxins
  • • Poor nutrition and a lack of protein
  • • Harsh soaps and cosmetic products
  • • Cigarette smoke

Sensitivity is often triggered by a warning signal from the Lagerhans cells, these are receptors that register the presence of foreign agents and toxins in the skin.  The Lagerhans cells stimulate an allergy response, know as a histamine reaction, when they come into contact with certain skin irritants.

Attempting to calm and sooth a red and sensitised skin, one would need a skin care professional to understand the reactive nature of this skin care concern.

DermaFic ACC Copper has a soothing and calming effect on the skin, and is able to “Turn the red off”.

Be sure to use the correct DermaFix cleanser and do not use harsh soaps.
