Are you over-doing it?

What to do when there’s a little too much going on your S K I N?

I always refer to the skin barrier as being impaired, you will probably hear me say this quite often when referring to a ‘leaky roof’ also known as the outer layer of the skin. When our skin is overworked, over treated it tends to become irritated and in a constant state of fight or flight (just like our bodies) , In these situations I always find the overuse of enzymes, Alpha hydroxy acids or beta hydroxyl acids on the skin so essentially ‘over exfoliation’ . It’s a natural occurance when the skin is not doing to well. We over cleanse, over enzyme, over exfoliate and over treat.

The best suggestion I can give is to pull your routine right back, give your skin a break and let it recalibrate. Even pull back to just a good quality Cleanser and moisturiser (not for ever) but just until the skin re harmonises.
