The Core of Our Mission: Women’s Health and Family Wellness

Why Women’s Health Matters

Our mission at Vysana is to support women, as we believe global healthcare systems often fail them at various life stages. We start with skin health and delve deeper into overall wellness, ensuring we also cater to the family unit. Remember, we treat men too!

Insights from Clinic: Virtual Skincare and Environmental Factors

Trends and Themes in Skin Health

Our virtual skincare service is thriving, with numerous queries about skin health. A recurring theme is the impact of environmental factors on skin. We’re here to address these concerns and guide you through maintaining healthy skin.

The Primary Care Women’s Health Forum: A Wealth of Knowledge

Teasers from a Pioneering Conference

I recently attended the Primary Care Women’s Health Forum, an enlightening experience filled with invaluable insights. Over the coming weeks, I’ll be sharing bite-sized chunks of knowledge from this event, focusing on women’s health and holistic skin management.

The Big Question: Why is My Skin So Dry and Dehydrated?

Addressing Common Skin Concerns

A frequent question in our virtual skincare consultations is about dry and dehydrated skin. It’s crucial to differentiate between the two: dryness refers to itchy, flaky skin, while dehydration is characterized by tightness. Over-exfoliation, especially with AHAs, is a significant factor contributing to these issues.

Step 1: Put Down the Exfoliant!

Repairing the Skin Barrier Function

The first step in tackling skin issues is to stop over-exfoliating. This practice damages the skin mantle and barrier function. Instead, focus on repairing and nurturing your skin with suitable products.

Step 2: Understanding Hormonal Skin Care Cycles

Syncing Skincare with Hormonal Changes

For those in their thirties or experiencing perimenopause, it’s beneficial to sync skincare routines with hormonal cycles. This approach requires understanding the complexities of each individual’s skin and hormonal fluctuations.

Insights from the Women’s Health Forum

Key Takeaways and Future Discussions

The Women’s Health Forum provided a wealth of information on various topics, including the importance of Women’s Health Hubs, the realities of PMDD (Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder), and the concept of REDs (Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport). These discussions are crucial in understanding and supporting women’s health at all stages.

Gratitude and Looking Forward
