Natural recovery of the skin
Skin being red and hot may actually and even be the beginning of a recovery response and increased blood flow to help skin restoration. Skin hydration, stimulation of regeneration and natural recovery of the skin are highly important and is advised as much as possible and as soon as possible.
Unfortunately we tend to lather on thick layers of fatty creams as we think it will make the skin feel better. But actually it is not desirable at all to use that much fatty cream because due to it, the skin stays wet, can not breathe and therefore can not be restored. A thick layer of cream gives us the impression that it is soothing and that there is less pain, but the problem is maintained and the skin is actually getting worse.
Properly hydrating the skin in such situations is very important, as it will stimulate recovery. But it is crucial for a cream to be absorbed quickly by the skin and to be able dry very fast. Only then it’ll stimulate skin recovery. Skin that is ‘resilient’ and intact will not respond negatively to the use of water or a gentle cream. The base cream of our Pump Spray-on Technology is proven 24 hour hydrating and regenerative, so a very good choice. See “Base Cream“.
Sometimes the way skin reacts to a product is interpreted as an allergic reaction or skin irritation caused by application of a product. Often this is not correct and the reaction occurs because the skin is already broken without it being visible.
