Reactivity (or sometimes referred to as sensitivity) is the effect of an imbalance in our internal processes.
Skin is strong and is programmed to regenerate.
However, sometimes skin shows indications of redness, inflammation and welts and is considered to be reactive. Skin reacts to to an internal balance in function, most commonly caused by transepidermal water loss.
Skin is the largest organ of the human body and is designed to regenerate and to protect us from the external environment.
Ezcema is a condition of transepidermal water loss, where the barrier function and bi-layers do not hold or retain vital moisture. The skin becomes dry, cracked, inflamed and may bleed.
Psoriasis is a condition where instead of cells regenerating every 28 to 30 days they regenerate every 2 to 4 days.
Dermatitis is not a condition, but an umbrella term to describe an inflamed skin condition. Once the cause of the inflammation is established, it is called contact dermatitis.
Rosacea is a vascular skin disorder that is caused by the breakdown of the lymphatic system and the skin’s immune system. Rosacea produces unsightly physical effects and conditions range from mild to very severe, requiring medical attention.
Rosacea is not a condition that will heal by itself. If it is left untreated, the condition will worsen. Early treatment is the key.
The Visible Symptoms of Rosacea:
- Flushing redness on cheeks, nose, forehead and chin
- Erythema (redness), inflammation
- Small blisters, red bumps, pimples
- Heat weals
- Watery itchy eyes
- Bulbous nose, Noticeable pores, baggy cheeks
- In very severe cases of Rosacea, fibroplasia, distorted facial features etc
- Sensations include stinging, burning, hot itchy rashes
What Causes Rosacea?
Rosacea can affect all segments of the population but more so with people of a fair complexion. Genetic links can be asthma, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and rheumatoid arthritis.
There are a variety of triggers that can cause Rosacea to flare up. These include sun exposure, stress, hot beverages like coffee, alcohol and spicy foods. Medications and cosmetics with irritating ingredients and fragrances can also contribute to the condition.
A deficiency of essential fatty acids and an impaired acid mantle (the skin’s protective barrier) are two major causes of Rosacea
The Clover method of Treating Rosacea
For treating rosacea, we are lucky enough to have 2 ranges that help with Rosacea.
Rosacea and sensitive skin’s natural barrier functions do not function properly increasing transepidermal water loss (TEWL) and creating a more permeable epidermis. This can lead to a roller coaster skin effect that alternates from dry, dehydrated skin to oily skin with a red, irritated surface. Strengthening skin’s barrier function through nourishing botanicals, potent anti-inflammatories and skin-friendly hydrators heals and restores skin’s health. Lira Clinical’s exclusive MASQ-techTM illuminating technology immediately removes skin redness while calming and soothing irritation. This secret agent ingredient gives skin the most efficient healing time returning skin’s bright, beautiful complexion.
DMK uses a combination of the ALKALINE WASH Treatment and the world acclaimed, highly effective ENZYME THERAPY Treatment. This combination of treatments reaches the core of the problem and addresses all the contributing factors that cause rosacea.
