Your DSNW Skin is prone to inflammation. What does this mean?
Inflammation has been associated with many barriers to skin health and may hasten skin aging in DSNW Baumann Skin Types®.
What is “Inflammation”?
Skin inflammation is caused when inflammatory factors in the body stimulate the blood vessels to dilate. This leads to redness and flushing. To help explain inflammation, we use the example of INFLA-MAN.
INFLA-MAN™ stimulates various pathways in the body that cause various cells to produce inflammatory factors, turn on genes that can lead to inflammation. This causes blood vessels to dilate, leading to redness. Inflammation causes many problems that can lead to “sensitive skin” and increases the risk of skin aging.
