[ 26 ] • # dayspamagazine • august 2018 HydroPeptide Cleansing Gel Repêchage Red-Out Soothing Sheet Mask What are the best ingredients for sensitive or reactive skin? Butler: My go-tos have always been chamomile because of its anti-infl ammatory and soothing benefi ts, and arnica because it's so calming and balancing. Also, Yon-Ka's new cream for sensitive skin combines a sensibiotic complex (which is a blend of pre- and probiotics, and sea mayweed) to stimulate the skin's good ecofl ora, boosting its natural defenses to combat aggressors. Moran-Jenkins: An extremely important ingredient in our Red-Out products is micro silver, which fi ghts hypersensitivity associated with rosacea. It, along with quercetin and rutin, has anti-infl ammatory, antibacterial and antioxidant properties. The Hydra 4 line includes natural olive and marine extracts. Seaweed is great for sensitive skin, as well. It has similarities to human plasma, and is one of the richest natural sources of antioxidants and vitamins B 12 , C, E and K. It also has amino acids, trace elements and minerals. Lavigne: We love anything that helps alleviate stress on the skin, including the aforementioned chamomile, calendula and arnica, as well as shea butter, rose, rosehip, lavender, aloe vera and horse chestnut. Are there any treatments or products these guests should avoid? Moran-Jenkins: Products should not contain chemical compounding, artifi cial dyes or heavy fragrances. We also avoid microdermabrasion, strong acid peels and facials with too much steam. Lavigne: When the dermis is compromised, you need to take a holistic approach to healing the skin barrier that includes reducing, at least temporarily, the use of anything that strips away its natural protection. That means steering clear of strong topicals (such as retinols or alcohol-based toners), exfoliating acids (such as salicylic or alpha hydroxy acids), mechanical exfoliators and harsh scrubs, as well as anything with parabens. Butler: Some the main ones to avoid include fragrance, retinoids, alcohols and fruit pit-based scrubs. For treatments, stay away from chemical peels and microdermabrasion, as well as excessive heat. u spotlight Jane Iredale Balance Hydration Spray Ilike Organic Skin Care Mattifying Serum Pure Fiji Dilo Rescue Bath Therapy purefi "When the dermis is compromised, you need to take a holistic approach to healing the skin barrier."
