Dr Perricone, world renowned anti-ageing expert, found that 80% of women report that they have sensitive skin and that sensitive skin can age quicker as it will experience more damage from the sun and the environment and external aggressors. This is a shockingly high statistic and sensitive skin can be hard to treat.
Dr Perricone has some valuable advice on the best way to treat sensitive skin:
Keep your routine simple - choose very mild cleansers and use treatment products and moisturizers that are antioxidant rich.
Try to avoid heavily fragranced products and cosmetics more than 3 months old.
Avoid ingredients such as alcohol, glycolic acid and fruit acids.
As is expected from Dr Perricone, diet plays an important role, top sensitive skin foods include
Healthy fats such as cold water fish (e.g. salmon) nuts, avocados, olives and extra virgin olive oil.
Quality protein at each meal so that the cells in the body can repair themselves.
Avoid pro-inflammatory foods such as sugar, sweeteners, flour and pasta.
Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, rich in anti-oxidants.
From his findings, Dr Perricone has created a new, easy-to-use four piece skincare range – Hypoallergenic.
