Fighting inflammation is probably the single most important thing you can do for your skin.
When you twist an ankle or get an infection, your immune system triggers an acute inflammatory response that boosts circulation and sends white blood cells to the afflicted area – kind of like turning on a sink. This is your body doing what it is supposed to do!
Typically, the “water flow” slows to a trickle as you get better, until your body figures out when to completely shut off the tap. Unfortunately for many people, the water never stops running. The inflammation may become chronic in response to external factors in the environment like pollution, sun exposure, and toxins.
When your body can no longer keep up or successfully intervene, signs of inflammation may start to show in your skin in the form of breakouts, puffiness, redness, irritation, or advanced signs of aging.
Here are some ingredients that work inside and out to help turn off the tap for visibly soothed, depuffed skin – once and for all.
