New ZO Skin Health Hydrating Crème – Just The Thing For Dry Skin!

Having dry skin isn’t fun in any form. The various symptoms, associated with the condition include itching, redness, uneven texture and take a serious toll on sufferers’ self-esteem.  In a survey conducted by FEMAIL, seven in ten participants agreed that having dry skin impacts their overall confidence.

So, what causes it?

Dryness can be a symptom of an overactive immune response and skin conditions such as eczema and atopic dermatitis. Sore, itching skin can also be a result of a compromised protective barrier which is often caused by improper skincare regime and environmental factors such as cold weather and low humidity.

3 Products That Will Transform Your Rosacea-Prone Skin Forever

Is your skin itchy, flushed and inflamed? We’ll spare you the preamble about how difficult to manage rosacea can be because if you are affected by this condition – and approximately 10% of the UK population are- you know this. However, building a proper skincare routine can go a long way in helping you keep minimise your flare-ups and restore your skin health. Here are the products that are specifically designed to tackle rosacea symptoms and ease your skin woes:

#Sun protection

Did you know that the sun ranks as the top trigger for rosacea flare-ups? Protecting your skin from the harmful ultraviolet radiation is key not only to easing rosacea symptoms, but also to preserving your skin’s youthful appearance.

oclipse-c Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 50 ZO Medical, rosace-prone skin

Oclipse-C™ SPF 50 is the perfect solution for sensitive, rosacea-prone skin. It provides a non-irritating mineral protection against UVA, UVB, HEV and IR-A rays, while its slow-release antioxidants complex supports the healthy skin barrier function.

#Cleansing

Rosacea, similar to acne, is a disease within the skin’s pilosebaceous glands, so keeping your skin free from excess sebum will also help to stave off your flare-ups. However, harsh cleansing products and abrasive exfoliators can cause further damage to your skin barrier function and irritate your skin.

ZO Medical Rozatrol Rosacea treatment, rosacea-prone skin

So, what’s the alternative? Rozatrol™ is an ultra-mild enzymatic exfoliator that cleans and prevents excess sebum production. It not only cleans your skin thoroughly but also reliefs existing redness and inflammation thanks to its amino acid complex.

#Hydration

Rosacea disrupts the healthy functions of the skin’s protective barrier which causes the skin to lose its natural moisture and be more susceptible to environmental stressors. That is why you need to include a powerful hydrator in your routine and help your skin retain as much of its natural hydration as possible.

RESTORACALM Soothing Recovery Crème, rosacea-prone skin

For a quick flare-up relief, use the Restoracalm™ soothing recovery cream. It provides immediate comfort to dry, flushed skin and stimulates the natural restoration of the skin barrier. Restoracalm™ has been developed with silk sericin protein to support skin’s recovery process and prevent future irritation and signs of ageing.

Sensitive Skin Misconceptions

Moisturisers are popular products, especially among women. More than 90 percent of the population seek a program that offers moisturisation for a temporary feeling of skin smoothness.  sensitive skin

Moisturisers and Sensitive Skin

Moisturisers can only offer momentary relief for symptoms such as irritation, roughness or itching. The improved surface texture through artificial smoothing or plumping of the skin is fleeting and a superficial improvement. The truth is that these products are ineffective and lack any real benefit.While the occasional use of hydrators when absolutely necessary is acceptable, to depend upon them for hydration and calm skin on a daily basis is wrong. What’s more, repeatedly using moisturisers has a remarkably negative impact on your skin, making it weaker and drier. It is detrimental to skin cellular functions, arresting the skin’s ability to renew itself, leading to the appearance of ‘sensitive skin’ and an acceleration of skin ageing.

Companies within the cosmetic industry are in constant competition to try and outdo one another. They produce a wide variety of moisturisers (plain, light, heavy, with or without anti-ageing claims, etc.) to appeal to everyone. Many consumers assume that any product that causes burning, exfoliation or redness is bad for the skin. While moisturisers are marketed as ‘gentle’, ‘non-irritating’, ‘soothing’, etc., to appeal to all.  Due to this general intolerance to skin discomfort and the belief (and fear) that any form of irritation is bad, many believe they have sensitive skin. This ‘sensitive skin’ trend, has provided a new market for companies to create and sell products that contain stronger moisturisers, which can actually make skin more sensitive.

sensitive skinSensitive Skin in Women

You will notice that the emergence of ‘sensitive skin’ is mainly seen in women. Men and children commonly do not use moisturisers, while women are often taught to use moisturisers from their teenage years. As a result, their skin becomes addicted to this product and brings a whole host of other issues with it.

Overall, skin sensitivity is not really a sensitivity disorder. A sensitivity disorder can be seen with certain cases of genuine skin dryness (not dehydrated skin) or genetic disorders. In fact, ‘sensitive skin’ could more accurately be labelled a skin weakness or intolerance.
