If you struggle with sensitive skin, you know that it’s really difficult to find products for both face and body that not only work well but don’t leave rashes, irritation, or blemishes. So, when you find something that works, you stick with it and usually hesitate to deviate or try anything new. With so many new beauty trends and impressive products on the market, being stuck with sensitive skin can feel so limiting. We’re here to help liberate you!
The two most important things to do for sensitive skin care are to soothe and heal!
Why Soothe & Heal Sensitive Skin?
Protection of the skin from irritation and inflammatory reactions is extremely important to maintain youthful and healthy skin. Every single inflammatory response, whether it is clearly visible, slightly visible or clinically visible, results in damage to the skin at the cellular, molecular and sub-molecular levels — the invisible irritation. These are daily assaults to the skin which may not be visible at the skin surface, nonetheless, these reactions cause damage within the skin; and these daily damaging reactions, are a contribution to what we consider normal aging.
UV exposure, sunburn, wind burn, and all inflammatory reactions, regardless of their cause, generate a variety of adverse and damaging reactions at the surface, and within the skin. These biochemical changes lead to changes first at the cell and tissue level; however, the final result is structural, functional and visible changes in the skin.
Wait, back that up, what did you just say? Basically, any form of skin inflammation or irritation can be a major causer and influencer of aging. Ignoring the need to soothe and heal your skin (especially sensitive skin) can lead to premature, visible signs of aging.
Don’t worry, it’s not too late! One important place to start in fighting signs of aging is understanding what key ingredients help treat and soothe and heal common issues associated with sensitive skin.

*Trametes Versicolor, also known as “Yun Zhi,” is a mushroom widely used in Japan, and in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Cordyceps, also known as “Dong Chong Xia Cao Tochukas,” is considered a general health tonic in China, and promotes health through its immune modulating and energizing effects. Many published studies have documented the effects of these natural products in promoting health and well-being, especially regarding immune regulatory reducing effects. The blend of these two medicinal mushrooms was created and optimized to reduce the likelihood of Cosmetic Intolerance Syndrome (CSI) by reducing skin reactivity and providing direct soothing and anti-oxidant effects. This blend virtually eliminates uncomfortable cosmetic reactions normalizing hyperactive skin in susceptible individuals. It was designed to provide an immediate and long-term anti-irritant and soothing effect on the skin, and over time, it can actually make skin less reactive.
Any combination of the soothing and healing ingredients above (especially the medicinal mushroom blend) provides the skin with the nutrients needed for healing, rejuvenating, and ultimately balancing sustainable health and wellness. When shopping for sensitive skincare products, be mindful of the presence of these ingredients, and the more the merrier!
