Dr Weil for Origins Mega Mushroom Serum
'Sensitivity can be born from pollutants, diet, anxiety, genetic or simply harsh topical products. Harsh weather conditions continually batter the skin leaving it chaffed and sensitive include a reputable SPF in your skincare routine preferably a daily moisturiser with an SPF included. Eating spicy foods or a diet rich in red meats can also cause sensitivity. Look at what you eat and when..review your diet including fish and lessen the spice! Anxiety causes the stomach to create acid which will then cause sensitivity in the skin so look at how you deal with issues, take some time out for yourself and learn to pass over things we cannot control.
Harsh topical products - avoid using ingredients that will strip the skin, ingredients like SD alcohols, sulphates, isopropyl myrastrate, artificial colours or fragrances as these can strip the acid mantle. The Dr Weil Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Collection includes specially-formulated products that work to combat irritation and contain Dr. Weil’s “Signature Six” ingredients, enhanced with key ingredient Lily Bulb, which helps defend skin against silent skin agers, making skin stronger and more resilient.
