THE 6 ROUTES TO CALMING


Posted on
Sensitised and inflamed skin is a complicated concern which requires both external (skincare + dermal therapies) and internal (naturopathy) treatment. Medik8's Redness Range  supports our in-clinic protocols with skincare packed with all the ingredients needed to calm and to reduce visible redness topically. The unique formula in Calmwise™ Colour Correct  fulfills all 6 key approaches to inflammation and redness.

1. ANTI-INFLAMMATION
Red and sore inflammation can leave the skin feeling irritated, uncomfortable and hot. Bisabolol, an extract from the chamomile flower, inhibits inflammatory signals to help control irritation and redness. Aloe vera is also used to help soothe and calm the complexion.

2. SKIN STRENGTHENING
The skin’s natural barrier plays an important role in preventing water loss and stopping allergens and irritants from causing inflammation in the skin. Niacinamide helps to stimulate the production of ceramides, an important lipid in the skin's natural barrier, to keep skin protected.

3. LIMITING REDNESS
Inflammation can cause the dilation of blood vessels, which ultimately increases the flow of blood under the skin’s surface and leaves complexions red and inflamed. Caffeine acts as a constrictor of blood vessels, helping to regulate the volume and blood flow through the skin while taking down redness.

4. HEALTHY CAPILLARIES
New blood capillaries being formed is a side effect of chronic inflammation, and can lead to redness being visible from the surface of the skin. Perfluorodecalin is an oxygen carrier which is able to suppress the formation of newer blood capillaries leaving the complexion even-toned.

5. CALMING RESPONSE
Inflammation in the skin activates white blood cells and other immune responses. Aloe vera and bakuchiol from Indian babchi seeds help to block the activation of the immune response which can cause redness, leaving skin stress-free and soothed.

6. INSTANT COVERAGE
Complementary colour theory has been used in Calmwise™ Colour Correct. Red and green sit opposite each other on the colour wheel, so the mineral green pigments help to diffuse redness in the skin and balance skin tone. This creates a soft focus veil which is the ideal base for make-up.
