Q. MY SKIN IS FREAK­ING OUT – WHAT ARE MY CHOICES IF I DON'T WANT A MED­I­CATED SO­LU­TION?

A. If your skin is so su­per ir­ri­tated that even wa­ter makes you wince, cor­ti­sone creams aren’t the only op­tion. “Res­cue balms are ex­tremely rich in tex­ture and leave a pro­tec­tive film that will hold in mois­ture and shield against wind and ir­ri­tants,” says skin ther­a­pist Dian­dra Poli­tano, who uses Medik8’s Ul­ti­mate Re­cov­ery In­ten­sive Skin Re­pair Cream on par­tic­u­larly com­pro­mised or stressed-out sen­si­tive skin types dur­ing treat­ments. “It can re­ally speed up re­cov­ery fol­low­ing a pro­fes­sional treat­ment like a peel. But all sen­si­tive and dry skin will ben­e­fit from us­ing them as an overnight treat­ment or a face mask,” she adds. Look for a for­mula con­tain­ing zinc ox­ide, vi­ta­min E or ar­nica.
