When Trouble COMES KNOCKING
Sensitivity is caused by inflammation that occurs in the skin. It’s a skin condition that more people are acknowledging. If-fy over your skin condition? Origins and Dr. Andrew Weil aim to clear-up any confusion.
Good Versus Bad Inflammation
Apparently not all forms of inflammation are bad. Inflammation is in fact the body’s response to stimuli which work to harm the skin. It’s a lifesaving mechanism to defend against real dangers and restore health of the skin. But when it occurs in areas where it’s not required or when the process persists long after healing is complete, that’s when problems i.e. bad inflammation, can occur. Bad diet, pollution, environmental toxins, and free radicals from sun damage can further exacerbate the situation thus causing chronic sensitivity.
The “Stress And Inflammation” Correlation
According to Dr Andrew Weil, our mind and skin are closely connected. Have you heard about psychodermatology? It’s an emerging field of medicine that links the impact of emotions to skin health. Interestingly, recent research indicates that negative feelings can release a wave of stress hormones (cortisol) which triggers inflammatory problems.
Mega Mushroom Targets Sensitivity
Understanding the effects of stress on the skin, the latest reinvention of the Dr Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Collection uses a new complex of ingredients that specifically targets stress-induced skin. Using an integrated approach to skincare, the range immediately quiets and calms facial skin so that it looks less stressed. In time, troubled skin is strengthened and soothed. Holding true to the brand’s tagline “Powered By Nature. Proven By Science”, the range is made with four key natural ingredients namely sea buckthorn berry, chaga, reishi and cordyceps which scavenge free radicals, minimise cellular damage, calm skin and enhance the skin’s protective barrier respectively. Ultimately, the most important thing to note is the fact that the collection received amazing results in its clinical and sensory tests: Upon immediate application, skin is soothed and less compromised. After four weeks skin’s barrier is strengthened and skin tone is much more even in comparison. After eight weeks, 94 per cent saw a healthier appearance and 84 per cent agreed that skin’s more resilient.
