The Do’s and Don’ts of Sensitive Skin Care
Sensitive skincare requires extra attention when it comes to initial sensitive skin symptoms and irritation. With the wrong products or techniques, it can easily become irritated and uncomfortable. In this blog, we’ll go over some essential do’s and don’ts of sensitive skin care.
Tips for managing Sensitive Skin Care
- Patch test new products before using them all over your face. This involves applying a small amount of the product on a small area of your skin and waiting for a few hours to see if there’s any reaction. It’s a simple step that can save you from potential discomfort or damage.
- Use gentle, fragrance-free, and hypoallergenic products. Try our 100% safe Serum. Our products are less likely to contain irritating ingredients that could cause a reaction on sensitive skin.
- Moisturize your skin regularly. Sensitive skin tends to be dry, and dryness can lead to irritation and redness. Use a moisturizer that’s specifically formulated for sensitive skin, and apply it twice a day, especially after washing your face or taking a shower.
- Protect your skin from the sun. UV rays can trigger a reaction on sensitive skin, so it’s important to wear sunscreen every day, even on cloudy days.
- Keep your skincare routine simple. The fewer products you use, the less chance there is for irritation. Stick to the basics: a gentle cleanser, a moisturizer, and a sunscreen.
- Use products that contain harsh ingredients, such as alcohol, fragrances, and dyes. These can be irritating and damaging to sensitive skin.
- Exfoliate too frequently or aggressively. Sensitive skin can’t handle the same amount of exfoliation as other skin types. Limit exfoliation to once a week, and use a gentle exfoliator that doesn’t contain abrasive particles.
- Use hot water on your face. Hot water can strip your skin of its natural oils and cause dryness and irritation. Stick to lukewarm water instead.
- Rub or tug at your skin when applying products. Be gentle and use a light touch to avoid causing irritation.
- Ignore signs of irritation. If your skin is red, itchy, or uncomfortable, take a break from your skincare routine and give your skin time to heal.
Sensitive skin can be challenging to deal with, but with the right approach, it’s possible to manage it effectively. Stick to gentle, fragrance-free products, moisturize regularly, and protect your skin from the sun. Avoid harsh ingredients, exfoliation, hot water, and rough handling. If you’re unsure about a product, patch test it before using it all over your face. Read more
