The drastic cure - the emergency plan for your stressed skin.

Sensitive and sensitive facial skin often only develops as a result of too much care. The complete renunciation of care products allows your skin to regenerate. And no, this has nothing to do with horses. But isn't this pony super cute? If your skin is completely out of whack and sensitive, dry and/or blemished despite your caring care, then let us work on your skincare routine.

The drastic cure - the emergency plan for your stressed skin - Five Skincare

Too much care makes your skin lazy

Our skin is a highly complex organ. It reacts to impulses from inside and outside and constantly balances itself out so that we feel comfortable in our bodies. The balance is often only disturbed by our intervention. Just imagine how many ingredients come onto your skin every day. A cosmetic product consists of easily twenty or more ingredients. That adds up quite nicely throughout the day. The many fabrics bother her:

Over-treated skin becomes lazy and reacts by reducing the skin's own processes. In addition, constant creaming causes the horny layer to swell, which disrupts the natural barrier function and causes holes in it. Now too much of the skin's own water evaporates to the outside and the well-known feeling of tension and dryness sets in. What are we doing? Diligently apply cream, it feels sooo dry. And the game starts all over again.

Our goal is to help your skin regain more independence and not to prevent its own regeneration processes , but to promote them. This is the only way your skin can look good in the long term. It is important to find the balance between supportive care and self-regeneration.

It's all about the balance

You probably wouldn't have read this far if your skin wasn't driving you crazy. Now less is more. Your skin has to recover from your beloved 100-ingredients-a-day care and start to balance the inside and outside again.

The drastic cure. That's how it's done

Try not to use any care products at all for at least three days. Only wash your face with lukewarm water and also be careful not to spread the toothpaste on half your face.

The beginning will be difficult - so not with the toothpaste 😉 - because your skin has to adjust to the fact that you no longer care. Give her time and try to endure it, even if the symptoms get worse at the beginning.

Your skin will learn to take care of itself again and you will soon be able to relax a little, you will need less money for care products and you will be rewarded with balanced skin.

If you can hold out for more than three days – great, extend as much as you can. (The skin needs several weeks to regenerate). If that doesn't work, go slow and use a mini amount of an organic vegetable oil in the morning after you wash your face and your skin is still damp. No night care, no serums, lotions etc. Nada.

If you cannot do without make-up, then use a high-quality make-up remover oil, such as our FIVE Make-Up Remover , but then do without a care step in the morning.
