A Complete Guide to Healing Sensitive Skin.
Sensitive skin can be tough to manage as the skin may often react to what appears to be the simplest of ingredients. The skin’s reactivity is a result of a damaged skin barrier allowing everything to enter straight into the bloodstream. This may be a result of skin complaints such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne or the skin’s response to a poor diet or unhealthy lifestyle.
Can Sensitive Skin Be Treated?
The fantastic thing about the human body is that it is in constant state of repair. With that in mind, following a few tips can improve skin health and repair the damaged skin barrier.
Treat any skin problem with suitable, targeted treatment that won’t present with any side effects. I would encourage conjunctively using topical and internal treatments.
I found Chinese Medicine very effective for the management of my psoriasis. For topical treatment we have a beautiful cream, the Revitalising Scalp and Body cream that helps nourish problematic skin. If you are looking for something to help reduce redness and itchiness in the skin read more here
Enjoy a diet rich in anti-inflammatory foods such as beetroots, green leafy vegetables, lean protein and whole foods.
Drink 2-3 litres of filtered water each day. This can be supplemented with chlorophyll.
Avoid drinking alcohol, and eating foods high in sugar, greasy fatty foods and refined carbohydrates.
Avoid smoking, late nights and being consumed by electronic devices.
Ensure your digestion, hormones, thyroid and general well being are at optimal levels. Imbalances in any of these areas will see skin health be compromised.
Manage stress and other negative emotions. Although it is important to experience all these emotions, it is detrimental to your health when these emotions are experienced often.
Meditate regularly. A meditative state is a healing state. The immense benefit to your mind, body and soul achieved by meditating both at the start and end of your day is phenomenal.
Exercise regularly. Encouraging the healthy circulation of blood throughout the entire body and the release of endorphins is fantastic for the health of your mind and body and your skin.

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of presenting this topic on the Anti-Ageing Stage at the Beauty Expo in Sydney.
Although the audience was filled with beauty therapists, dermal therapists, cosmetologists and the like, it was met with great interest due to the likes of Nicki Hilton and Victoria Secret Models Brooks Nadar and Jasmine Arora being big fans of this facial.
As the title of this article suggests, many of us are faced with extreme exhaustion, which can often take us down a path of poor health and depression. The important question is WHY? Why do you have little energy? Why are you feeling depressed? Why do you lack motivation? Why can’t you get up in the morning?
The answer is simple; I’m pushing myself, not eating the right food, not exercising, just NOT taking care of myself.
The number of times I have had patients come in with a health concern and answer their own questions with, “I know I’m not doing the right things for myself right now”. This is often followed by excuses that make it ok.
