Mosquito bites

Odu kodumi

It is very important to take care of the skin carefully and gently - you must avoid cosmetics and cleaning products that contain synthetic chemicals, because their irritating effect is not always directly observable, these substances can increase allergic reactions in the future, have an accumulative effect (unfavorable manifestations can occur only with a certain amount of substances accumulated in the body), break down the skin's protective barrier or promote inflammatory processes in the long term. Of course, there is no one-size-fits-all product that is suitable for all skin types and for every season, however, finding a 100% natural cosmetic product that works for you will reduce these types of long-term risks many times over. The skin should be cleansed with gentle means, or all kinds of natural cleansers - oils, milks, gels and micellar water, and make sure that they do not contain sulfates (all substances in the name of which you can find various derivatives of "sulfate” – for example, sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium coco sulfate, etc.). Sulfates are the ones that reduce the skin's protective barrier and irritate it by forming microcracks, thus making the skin more susceptible to various environmental irritants, to which the manifestations of healthy skin's reaction would not be so intense, for example, the itching after a mosquito bite will not be too unbearable or long-lasting, as well as redness- so pronounced and persistent.

It should be remembered that tolerant skin is best created in the season when irritants are not so strong and various symptoms are not too pronounced, because in the acute period the greatest desire is to quickly eliminate the adverse skin reaction to reduce itching, acne, dry spots, etc., however, quick and the effective means work in the opposite way, that is, they neither strengthen the skin's protective barrier nor reduce chemical pollution in the body, but specifically act on the corresponding receptors, reducing the body's natural protective reaction as a whole. In order to prevent the need for such products, the skin must be moisturized with 100% natural products (link to the blog on unwanted substances in cosmetics, or the preamble, which LABRAINS cosmetics do not contain Labrains | News & Blogs) - milks, balms, creams, because it ensures the health of the skin in general and its ability to perform its protective functions, and you must also remember about sun protection creams (link to the blog with SPF filters- Labrains | News & Blogs), which contain 100% only physical filters, namely Ti02 and/or ZnO. For truly well-groomed skin, the symptoms of itching and the possible skin damage associated with it will manifest themselves less. The itchy area should not be scratched, in order not to tear the protective layers of the skin even more and not to cause more damage, the prevention of which will require various anti-inflammatory substances, which will only intensify the itching - the skin must initially be soothed. LABRAINS recommends applying Oil-to-milk on the itchy area without rinsing, the fatty acids included in its composition with the regenerating effect of the ceramide layer not only restore the skin, but also reduce friction when scratching, thus reducing the possibility of significantly tearing it.

LABRAINS has tested various anti-itch preparations to relieve itching, but it should be noted that many preparations contain artificially synthesized substances that are used as preservatives and solvents, whereas natural remedies contain alcohol and essential oils, which do not strengthen the protective barrier of sensitive skin. Many trials have been carried out using ice, mint tea, lemon water, which pleasantly relieves immediate itching (especially frozen mint, lemon tea cubes), however, for those who have an allergic reaction, the itching does not go away within 4 hours and the bitten area continues to itch for several days, these techniques may not produce the desired result. In the LABRAINS test group, it has been observed that LABRAINS micellar water, which thanks to beet sugar - betaine, which acts as a skin moisturizer, is a prebiotic for beneficial bacteria, due to Lactobacillus ferment - after bite applied to the skin with a cotton pad, successfully reduces redness, edema and itching, and stabilizes the protective function of the skin during the day, preventing it from overreacting to the irritant, that is, preventing the formation of long-term allergic inflammation. Although it should be noted that one of the youngest members of the LABRAINS test group - a 6-year-old boy - decided that love helps best against itching!

LABRAIN warns: “When the protective function of the skin is disturbed, the damaged area becomes an open door for various stressors and pathogens that promote infection. If it has started and serious skin damage is observed, you should seek help from a specialist. Likewise, in all cases where the itch does not go away within a couple of days, using anti-itch or anti-allergic agents and the temperature rises or skin inflammation begins, you should immediately go to the doctor."

LABRAINS specialists offer to evaluate the composition of your anti-itch products for free by sending it to LABRAINS info e-mail, whatsapp, sms. Let's determine the presence of irritating, artificially synthesized, endocrine system affecting or even carcinogenic substances in it - remember that dermatological tests on products used on the skin do not evaluate the possibility of oncology or other serious diseases. The impact on the development of such diseases is mostly observed clinically only after decades.

Have an adventurous and safe summer!
