Hands up who has had a bout of reactive skin?
Stress, medications or environment can cause your skin to break out, have red patches of dry flaky skin and cause eczema or psoriasis flare ups.
Understandably, our natural first response is to cover up.
Not only can this draw attention to the problem area but also clog pores and make things worse.
Sometimes this is unavailable and so if you must cover up, I recommend using a Mineral (loose powder foundation) to let your angry skin breathe while it is recovering.
Over cleansing is also another popular go-to and again this can simply exacerbate the problem.
It’s a treadmill we have all be on until things just keep getting worse. Wham - skin is irritated, itchy and sore and so is your psyche.
The best simple answer is to take a staged approach to calm everything down and yet keep the skin hydrated and nourished.
At my house the Vitamin C Brightening Serum is our go-to first step for any reactive skin problems. Just a drop smoothed onto the affected area will instantly help to soothe and calm.
The turmeric in the serum assists with redness and its anti-inflammatory properties help to ease any inflammation. Restoring your skin back to equilibrium and health, blemish free and glowing.

The seconds step is to moisturise with a gentle light moisturiser.
Sometimes the Vitamin C serum is enough to begin with but when more nourishment is needed the Balance & Replenish Light Moisturiser is the product I reach for. Gentle, calming it has the right balance of nutrients necessary to help remedy the imbalance causing the reactive problem restoring your skin to radiance in no time.
