THE SECRETS TO MAINTAINING A HEALTHY SCALP

The importance of the microbiome to the health of your scalp If you’re looking for the secret to great hair, you need to start with the scalp. Like the skin on our face, the scalp is made up of oil and sweat glands and an invisible ecosystem of microorganisms: the microbiome.

If this becomes unbalanced, it can become irritated and more prone to oiliness, sensitivity and dandruff. This is why it’s important to ensure you’re paying just as much attention to your scalp as you are your hair – especially when it comes to addressing a range of everyday concerns such as greasiness and dandruff. So what’s the best way of caring for your scalp and how can you tell if you have a problem?

Oily hair

If you find that your hair becomes greasy quickly, you may have an unbalanced microbiome that is creating excess levels of sebum. You can help to combat this excess sebum with a shampoo. It has an exclusive anti-sebum complex and purifying gel texture that helps to rebalance your scalp while leaving it feeling fresh. Once your scalp is cleansed and clean, you should start to notice a big difference in how healthy your hair looks and bounciness and shine will be restored.

Dandruff causes and treatment

Dandruff is caused by an increase in bad bacteria and can be a tell-tell sign that your scalp microbiome has become unbalanced. The most effective way of addressing this scalp concern is with a targeted anti-dandruff shampoo. It helps to purify and soothe the scalp reducing flakes after just one wash. Detoxing the hair from product, sweat and sebum can also help to reduce dandruff. Shampoos containing salicylic acid, exfoliate away impurities such as this, leaving the scalp feeling fresh, clear and soothed.

Dry and damaged hair

If your hair is feeling dry and damaged, you may not immediately think of the scalp as the cause. But, like the skin on our face, the scalp can be affected by aggressors in the environment which over time can weaken its barrier function and affect the overall health and vitality of the hair. Shampoo uses keratin bonding technology to replenish damaged hair during styling and colouring; formulated with soothing properties respects sensitive scalp and leaves hair looking nourished and silky.

Hair loss and thinning

There are many reasons for hair thinning and loss such as the menopause, pregnancy, stress and hormone imbalances. But no matter the cause of the problem, you can help to improve it by addressing any visible signs of imbalances within your scalp’s microbiome. There are targeted treatments that work to create a healthy scalp environment and help maintain the density of thinning hair and leave hair feeling more resistant.

Info Leaflet

Pharmaceris-P range is a line of dermo-cosmetics designed for looking after psoriasis-prone skin both in remission and aggravation periods.

Psoriasis is a common chronic skin condition, affecting people of all ages. In case of psoriasis the skin requires not only intensive treatment in periods when the symptoms are aggravated, but also carefully designed, specialised everyday care.

The products with strong lubricating and soothing effects reduce the process of keratosis and exfoliation of the skin, soften psoriatic plaque and rebuild the skin barrier damaged by inflammation. The line based on light ichthyol with antibacterial, antifungal and anti-itch properties effectively reduces psoriatic lesions and prevents their recurrence.

Pharmaceris-P range offers effective and comprehensive dermo-cosmetic care for hair and scalp.

Each day, the skin must adapt to its environment, which affects its balance and health. Pollution, weather conditions, UV rays, illness, medicated treatments, ageing. All these factors weaken and unbalance the skin, exceeding its natural self-defences. It becomes more sensitive, more reactive. Marks, redness and irritation can appear. Each person’s skin reacts in its own way, depending on its DNA.

The Pharmaceris brand offers safe specialist dermo-cosmetics that are specifically targeted to meet skincare needs and assist in the treatment of most common skin problems.

Pharmaceris dermo-cosmetics have been developed by a team of experts who, by combining dermatological solutions and advanced cosmetic formulas, have managed to obtain preparations capable of addressing a number of different difficult-to-treat skin problems.
