While oily skin and dry skin bring their fair set of problems, it’s sensitive skin that is probably the most frustrating skin type. If you’ve ever suffered from sensitive skin, you’ll know how frustrating it is to look after and feel like you’re only hours away from a spontaneous break out.
So what’s the best way of managing sensitive skin? These tips from Discover Good Nutrition should be able to help, and we suggest a wonderful product to make your skincare regime a lot less stressful.
Protect your skin with sunscreen
Sunscreen is important for every skin type; however, sensitive skin may be especially delicate when it comes to heat and sun. It’s imperative for someone with sensitive skin to apply sunscreen on a daily basis.
Be gentle and don’t over-cleanse your sensitive skin
Over-exfoliating or over-cleansing sensitive skin can cause irritation. And you may want to stick to lukewarm water, rather than waiting for the water to be steaming hot before stepping in the shower, as heat can be another aggravating factor. Remember to keep your skin clean, but don’t go overboard.
Avoid constricting fabrics
People with sensitive skin may find that it isn’t only their face that is delicate. For many, sensitive skin is an all over experience! Try to your keep clothes loose and choose breathable fabrics.
Keep your skin healthy from the inside
Healthy habits such as keeping yourself hydrated, eating a nutritious diet and getting some exercise may improve your overall health. And your overall appearance, regardless of your skin type.
Make time to patch test new products
Investing in a new skincare or makeup product can be fun, but make sure you do a patch test before indulging. A patch test is a precautionary measure, and it simply means applying product to a small area. Depending on sensitivity levels, patch tests are best applied 24 hours to a week in advance of a full application. If you have sensitive skin, then you’ll know the best area for you. I recommend dabbing a small amount of product behind your ear on in another inconspicuous location. To stay on the safe side if you don’t see a reaction within a week of patch testing the new product, it’s probably okay to use it on your sensitive skin.
For any of our customers who deal with sensitive skin, we always recommend Dr. Spiller Sensicura Regeneration Cream. This is a cell-protective and repairing 24-hour moisturiser which can be applied to skin to noticeably reduce irritations, minimise fine lines, firm and leave the skin smooth.
