If you experience sudden skin irritation or have an ongoing infection that you can’t seem to kick, then your skincare products should feature ingredients that are antifungal, antimicrobial, and soothing. Many products on the market to treat infections contain harsh chemicals that may provide temporary relief, but not always a lasting solution. You will see the best results by choosing products with ingredients that naturally fight infections, calm inflammations, and pull out toxins.
Toner is often a skipped step in a daily routine, but it is one of the best steps for re-energizing and instantly hydrating skin. Immediately after cleansing and exfoliating your face, mist your face with Rose Water Toner. This will help the appearance of pores and prep your skin for maximum absorption.
Hydration is helpful for soothing irritated skin and is important in helping create a protective barrier against bacteria. Our best product for fighting against infection and providing long lasting hydration is our Foot Cream (great for more than just feet!). Customers with your skin concern also love our Blue Tansy Face Oil for clearing irritations.
The last step in your routine is protecting your skin. Keeping your skin protected and moisturized will help strengthen its barrier and prevent damage. In summer, don't forget sunscreen and year-round carry Lip Balm to apply as needed and even Rose Water Toner to mist on as an instant refresher throughout the day.
Your skin is the first line of defense when it comes to protecting you from outside “germs” (bacteria, viruses, and fungi). Building and maintaining strong skin is a way to support your immune system. You can strengthen your skin by keeping it clean, moisturized, and by keeping the good bacteria (microbiota) on your skin alive. You should avoid ingredients that weaken your skin like products with alcohol, strong foaming agents (SLS), antibacterial agents like Benzalkonium Chloride, fragrance, and inflammatory ingredients like soy. For your skin type, eucalyptus, tea tree, and coconut oil are all great natural ingredients to help keep irritated skin soothed and healthy.
