Sensitive skin is caused by nerve endings in the top layer of skin becoming irritated. This occurs because your skin’s natural barrier function is weakened and has broken down due to a trigger. Common causes of sensitive skin can include:
• Sun exposure
• Exposure to air pollution
• Frequent changes in temperature
• Very hot water
• Lack of sleep
• Hormonal changes during your menstrual cycle or pregnancy
• Stress and late nights
• Chlorine in swimming pools
• Dry skin
Always wear sun cream
Everyone knows that skin redness caused by a sunburn is bad, but what some people don't realize is that simply tanning is extremely damaging to the skin. Damaged skin is easily irritated, which spells out trouble for those with chronically sensitive skin.
Avoid your triggers
Many sensitive skin causes, like using skin care products with harsh ingredients, drinking too much coffee or alcohol, smoking, not getting enough sleep and more can be avoided or minimised. Knowing your skin and what can trigger a sensitivity false up is key to help soothe both naturally sensitive and temporarily sensitised skin.
Strengthen your skin's barrier
Sensitive skin is weakened skin - that's why ordinary skin care products, poor daily habits and the environment can cause irritation and dryness. Look for products that help strengthen the skin's barrier, to calm reactivity and diminish signs of overactivity.
Protect against pollution
92% of the world's population is breathing polluted air and live in an area where outdoor air quality fails to meet their guidelines for safety. Skin exposed to daily toxic pollution becomes prematurely aged, weakened, dull, dehydrated and sensitised. Always use anti-pollution products, like ALPHA GLOW FLASH FACIAL, to protect skin.
I brought this after watching an Aida insta video post and have used tools before in the past but this one is in a league of its own. My spcefic issues are puffiness under the eyes which no
Eye cream seems to shift. Using the tool I can literally see the puffiness drain away and it even helps when I do just a little because that particular day I don't have tons of time. In addition I have wrinkle lines in the furrow of my brow which I feel have faded since using this tool.
One of my fave products!
Love it! I use it before I moisturise in the morning and over my night cream in the evening. My skin feels smooth and looks fresh.
Over the past 3 years, I’ve loved EVERYTHING I’ve bought from 001.
Love this product! Smells so good and my skin feels so soft. This company’s customer service is amazing too!!
VF DETOX & BALANCE TCM-COOLING CONCENTRATE
Such a nifty little tool! It gives my skin care routine such a great boost!
Very high quality
PURE ACTIVE AHA & ENZYME PEEL
I purchased the four piece set. The Cryopresse feels so wonderful on the face and really gets the blood going. I have just started using the three slopes micro sculptor and the microscoper number one with the alpha glow flash facial. It really makes a difference! I also purchased the icicle and it feels amazing too. I have it on my make up vanity and I'm going to make it a daily habit. The only bummer is be very careful with the icicles they are fragile. I accidentally broke one of mine and it shattered but at least I have one left! The face wash sample that I got smell just like Hawaii. I am definitely going to keep using this system and the products. I wish that there was a website that you can watch all the videos on easily I seem to have to search around on YouTube and search to find videos of how to use the products. But they do include nice little cards that are step-by-step. Overall I am very impressed.
This Cleanser is so gentle and conditioning on my sensitive skin .. absolutely love it
It's easy to use and delivers the serum straight where is mostly needed Alpha glow now easier to apply than previously when i used the dropper,my skin feels very smooth and well hydrated
Love it - as I do all of your products - will be buying it again
Smells delicious- this is a really hydrating mist that works beautifully over makeup
