Vitamin B5 vs. Hyaluronic Acid + Vitamin C serums - how to soothe your skin?
How to soothe irritated skin?When it comes to soothing the skin, take care of it at every step of your skincare routine. For make-up removal, choose oils or butters that you spread with your hands as gently as you can. Avoid using cotton pads to rub the skin with it, because they can cause irritation.
In the case of sensitive skin, substances that can be irritating, allergenic and dehydrating should be avoided. It is also worth paying attention to the very high concentrations of plant extracts and active substances in skin care preparations. Despite their good properties, they can cause allergic reactions and irritation in high concentrations.
How to remove dead skin cells, if you have irritated, dry skin?The best enzyme peels are gentle, do not require massage, and therefore no skin rubbing. It is better to avoid these coarse-grained or even fine-grained peelings with sharp particles, as they can cause reddening of the skin and its irritation. However, if the enzyme peels seem to be too delicate, I recommend mechanical peels with delicate particles or gommage peels.
The benefits of Vitamin B5?It is one of the "older" substances that have been known for a long time, yet despite the constantly changing trends, manufacturers still very often use it in their cosmetics.For good reason, because panthenol is great for healing wounds and soothes irritations and inflammation. Additionally, it improves skin hydration.

The benefits of vitamin CSeals blood vessels - affects the synthesis of type I and III collagen. Collagens I and III are essential components of the dermis and the supporting substance of blood vessels.
It has anti-inflammatory properties - they result from the reduction of the activity of the nuclear transcription factor NFκ-B, responsible for the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines, including interleukin 10 (IL-10). Interleuikin 10 (IL-10), as one of many pro-inflammatory cytokines, is responsible for maintaining local inflammation, which means that the skin needs more time to regenerate.
It has a whitening effect - it has the ability to inhibit the tyrosinase enzyme, which is involved in the formation of melanin - the skin pigment. This results in the formation of a smaller amount of dye and reduction of the existing one, which results in lightening of the skin or - with longer use - also unifying its color.
Supports protection against UV radiation - reduces the erythema caused by UVB radiation, making it a perfect complement to the action of sun filters.
