Is your skin imbalanced?

Is your skin imbalanced?

What is imbalanced skin?

Most of us use several skin care products every day as well as make-up, and our lifestyles often mean that we are exposed to other aggressors, all of which can mean that we end up with imbalanced skin.

Imbalanced skin displays properties such as sensitivities, dryness, flaking, roughness, wrinkles, loss of elasticity, irritation, redness, inflammation, eczema, dermatitis, rosacea, spots and acne.

 

What can cause imbalanced skin? 

BEAUTY PRODUCTS

Beauty products that use harsh foaming agents like Sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) can irritate the skin, causing symptoms such as an itchy scalp and sensitised skin.

Ethyl alcohol (ethanol) is another troubling ingredient that is often used at levels as high as 12 to 15% to preserve beauty products. This is very drying on the skin and can make sensitive skin even more sensitive. In addition, it may increase the penetration of other substances put onto the skin.

Solvents such as propylene glycol and other PEGs can cause inflammation and redness because they dissolve the fluids needed for healthy skin, allowing irritants to penetrate further.Solvents such as propylene glycol and other PEGs can cause inflammation and redness because they dissolve the fluids needed for healthy skin, allowing irritants to penetrate further.

LIFESTYLE EXPOSURE

Your daily living patterns may also contribute to skin becoming imbalanced because airborne and environmental pollutants can have a detrimental effect on your skin. You may not be able to change easily where you live, but you can reduce your exposure to UV radiation, another major influence on your skin and the leading cause of premature ageing.

 

Creating the right balance

Green People is committed to creating products that balance and restore to promote beautiful, radiant skin. Our natural and organic skin care range has been developed with the following features:

  • Provide an effective barrier function
  • Retain moisture to prevent dryness
  • Maintain flexibility and elasticity
  • Reduce wrinkle formation
  • Protect against external aggressors
  • Retain a brighter, finer complexion
  • Don't forget inner beauty!

The health of your digestive system, your liver, the acidity of your blood and the way you breathe all affect your health and your looks. Stress, lack of sleep, pollution and diet also play an important role.

Eating a balanced, nutrient-rich diet high in dietary fibre and fresh organic produce, combined with moderate exercise and a positive outlook on life will all contribute to a glowing, radiant complexion.

Healthy skin needs plenty of water, a constant supply of essential Omega-3&6 fatty acids and quality nutrients through the diet, especially vitamins A, B, C,D and the mineral Zinc.
