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.
