What causes Sensitive and Flaky?

A
Naturally Weak Skin Barrier
×

Our body naturally forms a protective barrier to sit on top of our skin to help fight off allergens and bacteria. However, when this barrier doesn’t naturally form as well then we are more susceptible for the bacteria getting through into the immune system.

B
Naturally Dry Skin
×

If you suffer from naturally dry skin then the lack of natural moisture means that your skin can start to become patchy. It also makes it easier to react to bacteria and allergens leading to increased breakouts.

C
Poor Skin Immune System
×

If the skins immune system is weaker, it is much harder to fight off any infections caused by excess bacteria. This can then result in skin inflammation or breakouts.

D
Lack Of Crucial Fatty Acids
×

If the skin lacks essential fatty acids, or good fats, then it becomes weaker. This means that it becomes susceptible to more issues, leading to poorer skin.

E
Allergies To Certain Foods
×

Sometimes our bodies react badly to certain foods and when combined with allergies there can be certain foods it is best to simply cut out of your diet. If you think there is a food you are allergic to then it is worth having a food intolerance test. This will highlight whether you are allergic to certain things. Once this has been diagnosed a detailed consultation is possible to work on what product will be best for calming any inflammations and flare ups.
