How to Treat

How to Treat

01

Don't Forget SPF

The sun can be a major inflammation trigger, so make sure to wear sunscreen every single day. Bonus points if it contains an anti-inflammatory ingredient like aloe vera or lavender.

02

Avoid Products That Strip the Skin

Avoid cleansers and toners with high alcohol content, which strip the skin of the hydration it needs.

Product Recommendation:

Ursa Major Fantastic Face Wash

04

Soothe With Anti-Inflammatory Ingredients

Look for oat, green tea, calendula, or arnica to reduce redness, soothe, and heal the skin.

Product Recommendation:

Naturopathica Calendula Essential Hydrating Cream

• FROM THE TREATMENT ROOM •

When it comes to inflammation, less is more. Apply the “Less Rule” to prevent irritation and aid in skin soothing: (1) Less heat: Use cool towels and tepid water during your cleanse. (2) Less product: Avoid using too many products or layering. (3) Less pressure: Apply products gently, using less force. (4) Less friction: Avoid scrubbing or mechanical exfoliation.
