5 Ingredients To Calm Down Stressed Out Skin

Many of us would love to have that beautiful rosy glow that is free from irritation, redness and rashes, yet it is not always possible due to allergies, environmental stress and much more. Stressed out skin can look like irritation, rashes, uneven skin tone, fragile thin skin and redness, but it can also show up as heat on the skin to the touch and sensitivity to skincare products.

Stressed out skin can happen due to environmental stress like pollutants and radiation from the sun, having too much chlorine in our shower water or using too many active ingredients all at once, like AHAs, retinols and high potency vitamin c serums. It can also be caused by getting too many peels and exfoliation done at home or at a facial provider! Whatever the reason for your sensitivity, we are sharing 5 ingredients to calm down stressed out skin.


Top 5 ingredients to soothe sensitive skin and repair it:

1. Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5): This ingredient is considered to be well tolerated by even the most sensitive and irritated skin types. It is extremely rare to experience irritation from this ingredient. The main benefit would be that it increases hydrating levels within the skin, which leads to a healthier skin barrier. It also has soothing and anti-inflammatory properties for red, itchy, irritated skin. 

2. Squalane: what I love about this ingredient is how it has the ability to mimic our own skin. This ingredient is safe for all skin types, including the most sensitive and those who tend to get breakouts and acne.There is no-known allergy to this particular ingredient which makes it a winner. This ingredient will deeply nourish without causing acne or irritation. It helps support the skin's barrier and smooths-out the complexion, also improving its texture. 

3. Glycerin: a great choice for those who suffer from redness and irritated skin. Its natural anti-inflammatory properties help soothe the most sensitive skin types and makes the skin more resilient over time with continued use. Glycerin helps boost wound repair and healing and even helps with skin infections. It also has the ability to plump fine lines and wrinkles for a more youthful complexion. 

4. Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6): another B vitamin on the list. This is because vitamin B has been identified and has back up studies on repairing the skin. It is anti-carcinogenic and it has been found to be essential for skin development and maintenance. It is also shown to have an anti-dermatitis factor and to reduce irritation. Vitamin B6 deficiency may result in skin rashes and issues! This is your vitamin for glowing, healthy skin as it also contributes to synthesizing collagen. 

5. Chamomile Recutita: the flower extract of chamomile is known to have an immediate skin-soothing effect. It contains flavone derivatives and coumarin which are healing, moisturizing and anti-inflammatory for the skin. It has also been shown by studies to be moderately effective in the treatment of eczema and other skin misalignments, lowering significantly histamine levels within the skin.
