Sensitive Skin Care

Here are a few tips for sensitive skin care:

• Use sensitive skin care products. These products are specifically targeted to sensitive skin so you will not worry about any harsh ingredients. Also, check the instructions on the product to see if there are specific restrictions associated with the product.

• Cleanse your face and neck 2 – 3 times a day especially when you spend most of the time outdoors. Use cleansers for sensitive skin like those soap-free one.

• Use hypoallergenic moisturizer products.

• Avoid using toners. Most of toners are alcohol based and proven to be harmful for sensitive skin with continued use.

• Wear protective gloves when doing laundry or other chemical based cleaning. If you are allergic to rubber, you can wear cotton gloves below the rubber ones.

• Always apply sunscreen lotion before going out of your house.

• Anticipate allergens like dust and other pollutants once you get out of the house. Cover yourself up by wearing adequate clothing.

• Use soft foams or scrubs which will not cause reddishness or inflammation on your skin when there’s too much friction.

• Remove make up as quickly as possible. Use hypoallergenic makeup- removers.

So, sensitive skin care is very different from the normal skin care. Sensitive skin care is more about being careful with your skin (both in terms of sensitive skin care products and protection against environments atrocities on skin).
