Wellbeing magazine Wise Living has featured our Soothing Face Mask as one of the top anti-inflammatory skin care products to try for skin redness.
The following is an excerpt from the article, where the Wise Living journalist talks to Dr Preema Vig, medical director of the Dr Preema London Clinic about skin inflammation:
“Anti-inflammatory skincare contains ingredients that actively inhibit inflammation in the skin,” explains Vig. She can see why it’s becoming increasingly popular at the moment, saying: “Instead of buying a separate product such as an anti-inflammatory face cream, your skincare product is now giving those combined benefits, so you don’t have to purchase them separately.”
Luckily, there are plenty of common skincare ingredients with anti-inflammatory properties. Vig recommends looking out for products which include aloe, turmeric, calendula extract, witch hazel, niacinamide, sea buckthorn oil, vitamins C, D and E, oatmeal or ginger – “all these ingredients can help fight inflammation.
If you don’t want to exacerbate the redness of your skin, there are also some products you might want to steer clear of, such as those “that contain synthetic fragrances”, Vig suggests."
Our Soothing Face Mask mask contains cleansing Bentonite Clay and a cocktail of botanicals that have natural anti-inflammatory properties to help reduce redness and inflammation. Colloidal Oatmeal, Aloe Vera, Vitamin B3 and Matcha Green Tea work together to help reduce redness, calm itchy skin, relieve mild skin irritations and moisturise. It is subtly scented with Lavender essential oil which is known for its mood and skin benefits. The relaxing aroma will enhance the pampering experience of your masking ritual. Once applied to the skin, this mask will feel wonderfully cool and soothing on the skin.
