There’s nothing enjoyable about red, inflamed skin. Skin inflammation is your body’s natural response to something you have ingested or touched. It can be a result of immune system dysfunction, allergic reactions, or infections. Signs of skin inflammation include red patches, rashes, blisters, acne, and more. Bacteria is the main culprit of inflammation, and if an infection gets out of control it can be deadly. It’s important to pay close attention to your body to control inflammation as best as you can. Here are some tips to remedy and heal signs of skin inflammation:
Avoid Prolonged Sun Exposure
With spring in full swing, longer days will encourage us to spend more time outdoors. While getting your daily dose of Vitamin D is great, too much sun exposure can actually cause inflammation. If you already have a breakout of some sort, spending time in the sun can make it worse. Think about those pesky sunburns after a long day at the beach. UB rays lead to visible burns, pain, and blistering. Dry skin is another symptom of too much heat. When you decide you want to spend hours in the sun, always apply sunscreen, and wear protective clothing such as long-sleeves, pants, hats, and eyewear.
Regulate Your Diet
It’s no surprise that your diet is directly correlated to your body’s immune response. When you fuel your body with nutrient-rich food, you give it the power to perform all its essential functions. Certain foods and compounds cause internal inflammation that leads to external outbreaks. Sugar, processed meat, dairy, soda, fried foods, and gluten are all culprits of inflammation. When you consume sugar, your insulin levels spike leading to inflammation in your skin. This can result in a bout of acne, or an allergic reaction. Processed meats like sausage, hot dogs, and bacon contain inflammatory compounds and preservatives that slowly damage our immune system resulting in skin irritations. Fried foods are known for causing acne because they increase the sebum production in your skin. When foods are fried in high temperatures, they produce high levels of advanced glycation end products (AGEs), which lead to skin inflammation.
Try Our Ultra Recovery Cream
When you have done everything you can to reduce the signs of inflammation but you haven’t found relief, your next option is to use a specially formulated cream that is clinically proven to reduce irritation. Over at CYRx MD Skincare, we offer an Ultra Recovery Cream that contains cactus and yeast extracts that down regulate the most important signaling molecule enzymes in inﬂammation including: COX2, IL-1α and IL8. This down regulation soothes the skin, removes irritation, and reduces redness. Our Ultra Recovery Cream is further enhanced with four different ceramides to restore skin barrier function, which helps the skin maintain its natural structure. Maintaining this structure decreases water loss and increases natural moisturizing factors, which hydrates and protects the skin and signiﬁcantly aids the skin in recovering after exposure to stress.
