Acne & Sensitive Skin
Acne is caused by clogged pores, or infected or inflamed sebaceous glands. Blackheads and whiteheads are common types of acne, and age, hormones and skin type contribute to acne flare ups.
Sensitive skin is skin that is easily irritated. This is can be caused by weather, allergies, dry skin, and chemical agents, for example. Problems include occasional redness and blotchiness, sunburns and windburns, and tight-feeling skin.
Routine for Sensitive Skin / Inflammation
This type of skin is a catch all group – eczema, psoriasis and inflamed skin, etc. We recommend starting your clients on the sensitive products first such as Sensitive Cleanser, Sensitive Balance mixed with Acne Spot Treatment and Sensitive Daily Facial Moisturizer. Once their skin is under control, then introduce Dermaki’s anti-aging or acne products depending on skin type.
Recommended Dermaki Products
Use Dermaki Daily Facial Moisturizer/Sensitive version without essential oils. Nourish is also a great product if you like a light yet effective moisturizer. Vitamin C Complex/Serum is another great choice for sensitive skin that still wants great results.
Avoid Alcohols When Acne, Sensitive Skin or Inflammation is Present
Simple Alcohols – Which include SD Alcohol, Ethyl Alcohol, Methanol, Methyl Alcohol, Polyvinyl Alcohol, Benzyl Alcohol, Ethanol, Isopropyl Alcohol, Denatured Alcohol.
A lot of companies use these alcohols because they make your skin feel soft and non greasy but what they are actually doing is drying your skin out long term and may disrupt the skin barrier and may irritate skin causing redness and itchiness.
Improving Troubled Skin
While overly oily skin tends to be acne-prone, you should not skip out on adequately moisturizing your skin. Skin still needs essential hydration, otherwise it will feel tight and dry.
Use any of the following products that your skincare professional recommends: Acne Bar, Acne Mist, Acne Serum, Acne Spot Treatment and or Vitamin A Complex/Serum.
We recommend the Dermaki Skincare products for both sensitive and acne-prone skin. It’s always a good idea to control inflammation first before trying to take on aging products. Dermaki’s acne products will be helping you with aging while at the same time focusing on bring down visible inflammation.
