LOCALISED SKIN DAMAGE 
(AFTER A COLD, CHEILITIS, NAILS, ETC.)

Aesthetic procedures are on the rise: Increasing numbers of people are undergoing chemical peels, laser treatments and other forms of skin resurfacing. After any such in-office procedure, skin is as though stripped bare. Skin’s barrier function is almost non-existent, and it is likely to feel hypersensitive. In this situation, you are well advised to visit the pharmacy and ask about repearing creams for post-procedure skin. There are some amazing expert solutions out there that can really minimise downtime.

How can I repair sun damaged skin?

The first step to help repair sun damaged skin is to prevent further damage with daily facial sunscreen with retinol molecule, which is known to speed up cell turnover at the skin’s surface for brighter skin, while replenishing collagen and elastin in-depth to repair wrinkles. REDERMIC R UV SPF 30 combines sun filters with retinol suitable for sensitive skin.

Are freckles damaged skin?

Some people simply have freckles. In this case, they are certainly not a sign of sun exposure or damage. Other people get freckles following sun exposure in summer. In this case, the freckles show that the skin has reacted to UV rays, which can cause damage. Then, make sure you protect your skin with broad-spectrum UVA-UVB sunscreen daily to prevent sun damage.

How can I get rid of sunburn?

Once you have developed sunburn, the damage has already been done and all you can do is let it heal. Religiously protect the burn from the sun to prevent it from getting any worse, as well as applying a soothing aftersun gel with antioxidants and make sure you stay hydrated. If your skin has blisters, use a skin healing cream from the pharmacy until the burn has fully healed.

How do I treat diaper rash?

To treat nappy rash, bathe your baby in lukewarm water using a very mild, soap-free formula such as CICAPLAST Lavant B5 or LIPIKAR Syndet AP+. Gently pat dry and apply an ultra-gentle protective cream such as CICAPLAST Baume B5 that repairs the skin barrier function. In addition to these measures, ensure nappies are changed regularly and that they are not too tight.

OR FALSE

YOUR SKIN GET DRYER
WHEN YOU'RE SICK.

TRUE

Colds and flus suck moisture out of our skin leaving it feeling dry and dull. The illnesses themselves, coupled with the medications we are taking, and the fact that many of us are bedridden, leads to skin being deprived of moisture.

A 1ST DEGREE BURN
IS JUST LIKE SUNBURN.

TRUE

A 1st degree burn is just like a sunburn. It affects the outermost layer of skin only and causes the affected area to turn red and painful. Superficial skin burns also often itch due to histamine release.

CHEILITIS IS THE SCIENTIFIC
WORD FOR CHAPPED LIPS.

TRUE

Cheilitis is another name for chapped lips. The lips become dry and flaky, and painful vertical cracks can develop. The skin around the lips sometimes becomes irritated too. This dryness causes unpleasant burning sensations.

LICKING CHAPPED
LIPS IS A GOOD IDEA.

FALSE

People with dry and chapped lips often lick them frequently, and pick or bite off flaking skin. It’s so tempting isn’t it, but this only aggravates the situation by ridding skin of its natural protective layer and triggering a vicious cycle.
