What is your skin concern?

As a modern Hunter, we are faced with endless environmental assaults which wreak havoc on our skin. Air-conditioning, pollution, phone and computer screens, allergens and stress all impact heavily on the health of our complexions and can quickly dull our glow

Choosing appropriate skin tools to protect and treat your skin during these daily onslaughts is integral to putting your best face forward. Maintaining a consistent skin health routine will combat these aggressors, neutralize inflammation and ensure a vibrant, radiant and clear complexion now, and in years to come

Our skin health armoury is all natural, efficacious and appropriate for all skin types. To help you in your journey to ultimate wellness, we have selected common skin concerns and provided a regime to treat them

Dehydration

Dry and dehydrated skin are two very different things. Dry skin describes your skin type which is predetermined from birth. Your skin type rarely varies throughout your life but can be altered drastically through hormonal changes. A classically dry skin type is defined by a lower production of natural oil in the skin and presents as fine to no visible pores, severe tightness and thinner skin that wrinkles easily

Dehydration affects any skin type (even the oiliest skin!). Dehydration describes a lack of water in the skin, hence why this affects everyone regardless of how much oil their skin produces. It presents through tightness, fine lines, irritation, and sometimes an excess of oil or congestion. Our bodies are extremely smart. If the skin is lacking water, it will ramp up oil production to try and balance this deficiency

More often than not, a skin that is oilier than usual can be easily balanced by increasing water levels. An easy way to test if your skin is dehydrated is to place your forefinger horizontally against your cheek. Gently press against the skin and lift upwards. If you notice small, horizontal lines appearing, you are experiencing dehydration and need to up your hydration levels

Congestion

Congestion and breakouts are among the most common complaints we encounter. They can be caused by a number of different factors, including stress, hormonal changes, excessive oil production, dehydration, ineffective cleansing and insufficient exfoliation. Ensuring an impeccable skin routine to treat these frustrating skin conditions is paramount in achieving clear, calm skin

Firstly, here is a little background around how congestion and breakouts come to be. Our sebaceous glands secrete sebum (oil) into our pores, and this combined with a build-up of dead skin cells can cause a blockage. This blockage is called a “comedone”, commonly known as blackheads, whiteheads or simply “congestion”. These types of congestion are uninfected blockages of the pore characterized by whether the pore is open (blackhead) or closed (whitehead)

Blackheads form because the pore is open and the build-up inside is exposed to air. This oxidizes, hardens and changes colour to a darker brown, grey or black. Hence the name “Blackhead”. Whiteheads are a pore with a thin layer of skin over them. Excess sebum and dead skin cells accumulate resulting in a thick, whitish substance trapped under the skin that forms a plug. Hence the name “Whitehead”

They are not usually infected; however, bacteria can affect the skin around the pore. They generally present for far less time than blackheads, generally lasting a week. It is very important to resist self-extraction as they pore walls can be easily ruptured, allowing bacteria to enter resulting in inflamed acne and potential related scarring

Acne develops when the P.Acne bacteria infects the pore causing an infection and inflammatory response from the body. The blockage then escalates to what we know as a pimple and can be inflamed, red and sore

Sensitivity

Sensitivity is often confused as a skin type. And for good reason. Severely allergenic or intolerant skin is genetically predetermined, affecting some people for life. This inflammatory immune response can be triggered by a myriad of factors, including skincare products. People experiencing these reactions see their skin as “sensitive” and that’s how they class it. Really, their skin is “reactive” and prone to reacting adversely to internal and external influences

Remember, skin type is purely reflective of the amount of oil naturally produced by the skin. One can experience sensitivity irrespective of skin type. Classic sensitivity is brought on by the usual culprits: stress, hormonal changes, lifestyle factors such as alcohol consumption and smoking, pollution, UV exposure, heating and/or cooling, medication, sickness, etc. The list goes on and on! It can also be the result of certain skincare ingredients like sulphates which strip natural oils, therefore compromising the acid mantle (the skins natural immune shield). Deterioration of this shield leads to all the common symptoms of sensitivity including redness, blotchiness, skin discomfort, swelling, and breakouts

Rest assured, sensitivity can be alleviated through appropriate changes in lifestyle and topical skincare tools. Skin is our biggest organ and it is integral to our health to be mindful in how we treat it. Work with your skin, not against it and choose products that support this
