Inflammation: The Drama Queen of Skincare – Let’s Break Up!

Inflammation: The Drama Queen of Skincare – Let’s Break Up!

Skin inflammation, have you experienced it? Skin inflammation can present in forms such as redness, sensitivity, and irritation and is often the underlying cause of many skin concerns including aging, acne, and sensitivity.

Understanding inflammation is fundamental in tailoring an effective skincare routine. It is crucial to establish a healthy skin barrier first, and address inflammation before starting any type of advanced skin treatments such as lasers and microneedling. 

The truth is, without establishing a healthy skin barrier as the first step in your skincare routine, you won’t get the benefits you’re seeking.

In today’s episode of the Clear Skin Podcast, we’re sharing why your skin barrier is KEY to your skin’s success and what you can do to repair it without causing further damage to your skin. 


In this episode, you will: 

  • Learn why addressing inflammation is crucial for achieving healthy and radiant skin.
  • Discover the importance of skincare experts in guiding you towards effective and informed product choices.
  • Embrace setbacks and understand that your skincare journey is non-linear, but with the right knowledge, you can overcome any challenges.
  • Uncover the truth about skincare product formulations and how to make better purchasing decisions.

Nyki says it best “Our skin is so smart, so intelligent, it protects us all the time. When you overdo something without repairing your skin barrier, it overreacts causing more dryness, irritation, breakouts, and premature aging. Repairing the skin barrier is key.”
