If we collect data regarding skin types, most people would give their skin “sensitive” category. This may be because we are unintentionally treating our skin too aggressively. On average, a woman uses 12 different products with 168 ingredients in total daily. Isn’t that overwhelming for our skin? Not just these products but pollution, stress, hormonal changes, anxiety, and much more environmental factors can damage and make our skin prone to sensitivity. What a relief? Below are sensitive skin care problems usually reported and remedies to overcome these issues with skincare for sensitive skin.
This happens when you see blood vessels, hot flushes, bumps, and enlarged oil pores. This is inflammation and to improve this condition we should seek out soothing soap-free ingredients that would act as an anti-inflammatory. Use products that have licorice, algae, colloidal oatmeal and avoid chemical peels, acidic skincare ingredients such as; glycolic acid. Include Vitamin C in your diet and also use Vitamin-C serums.
Some products, when you use them, would leave your skin with dry patches, hot flushes, breakouts, and pigmentations. These are all allergic reactions, and this is because that certain product didn’t suit your skin. The best way to minimize allergic reaction is to do a patch test on your skin before applying on all skin. If you already got an allergy, a homemade milk compress will ease the symptoms. Soak a cloth in equal parts of warm water and milk and then place it on the irritated area. Use aloe vera, but if the condition worsens, visit a dermatologist.
