Irritated Skin: SOS products

Posted By Mariana

Do you experience skin pain, extreme itchiness and irritation, and are in need of some fast relief?

When it comes to skin irritation, there are a number of factors that could be triggering it. For example, you may suffer from some temporary medical conditions like abscesses, burns, or even sunburns. Skin discomfort can also result from previous injuries to the nerves or chronic conditions like fibromyalgia and neuropathy. Other reasons could be allergies or extreme sensitivities to physiological or environmental conditions. If you are experiencing constant skin irritation, it's essential to get professional advice from your doctor or a skin care specialist so that you can determine the severity of your skin's condition and what may be causing it.

In the meantime, for immediate topical relief, there are some easy-to-use solutions that can calm skin irritation and relieve the skin's immediate discomfort.  Below are some of our recommended serum and balms that could help you get some immediate relief. 

Bioderma Atoderm Intensive Balm

Atoderm Intensive Balm quickly stops itching and reduces the urge to scratch thanks to its anti-itching dermatological active ingredient PEA. Enriched with soothing and purifying agents, it instantly soothes irritation. Atoderm Intensive Balm restores the skin barrier for a lasting effect using its Lipigenium complex that is made up of lipids that are naturally present in the epidermis. Its patented skin barrier therapy limits adhesion and proliferation of Staphylococcus aureus on the one hand and penetrates allergens on the other, both being factors in aggravating dryness.

IS Clinical Pro-Heal Serum Advance+

This antioxidant-rich serum combines time-released vitamin C with a blend of botanicals to treat acne, rosacea, contact dermatitis and even insect bites. Olive leaf extract works with vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) to provide maximum antioxidant protection and health-promoting benefits. Zinc Sulphate reduces inflammation; Kojic Acid prevents blemishes; and vitamins E and A condition, nourish and neutralize free radicals. Pro-Heal Serum Advance+ offers iS Clinical's highest antioxidant protection levels, making it ideal for sensitive, compromised and sickly skin types.

La Roche Posay Lipikar Balm AP+M

It is the perfect body balm to get rid of severely dry, itchy and eczema-prone skin on babies, children and adults. Lipikar Balm AP+M is clinically proven to reduce itching by half, provide immediate soothing and space out the frequency of flare-ups of eczema and severe dryness. The new AP+M triple-action formula has a reinforced anti-scratching, anti-relapse efficacy and rebalances the skin's microbiome. It replenishes the skin's essential lipids to strengthen its moisture barrier and provides long-lasting 48-hour hydration. It can be used on the face, hands and body and is suitable for adults, children and babies as young as two weeks, for use all year round. The soothing balm quickly absorbs into the skin and is non-greasy with a non-sticky finish, leaving the skin soft and comforted from sensitivities.
