Cooling/Calming – sensitive skin or that which is irritated or flushed

Some skin is just constitutionally reactive and delicate. Its easy redness and itching/irritation require particular care. Cooling is the treatment principle that counteracts warmth, or excess rosiness. Dryness if present can be the result of either heat or loss of moisture. The action of ‘calming’ soothes the itchy, tight or irritated sensations that signify imbalance. Sometimes, the need for cooling/calming action is transient, such as flushing on a hot day. Formulations in this category address heat (redness) and irritation while maintaining skin’s integrity.
