Our climate is much of the reason people in Toronto tend to get eczema. Downtown dwellers go from one extreme climate condition to another, and in the wintertime, people use hot water on their face. The repeated exposure to cold and hot extremes irritates dry skin and can cause it to become sensitive. Additionally, allergies, stress, excessive drinking and spicy food can cause or exacerbate conditions such as eczema, rosacea or environmentally sensitive skin.
With sensitive skin, you need a calming regimen: calming, non-foaming cleansers and hydration serums to take down the redness. You can almost skip the toner. The best product to have at home is the Ultracalming Serum Concentrate. It works like magic to reduce redness, and it can be used morning or night. Sun protection for these skin types is an absolute must, since sun makes redness much worse.

- Camden Facial (this basic facial is a good starting point for any client; after this facial, we can determine if we need to take more aggressive steps)
- Sensitive Skin Facial (all products used in this facial are from Dermalogica’s Ultracalming line, extractions are only done where absolutely necessary and with lighter pressure, and the mask stays on longer)
- Age-Defying Facial (eczema can cause premature aging, so if your skin can handle it, we’ll use a more aggressive serum)
- Deep Hydration Collagen Facial (our collagen facial plumps up the skin, adds water back in with a special mask, makes your skin look more youthful and cuts down on redness)
