5 Sensitive Skin Care Tips
Many people claim that they have sensitive skin if they break out or are exposed to the sun after using a specific product. However, most of the culprits behind the stained skin and pimples are unsuitable products for your own skin type and bad skin habits. If you are one of the many who break out or itch or use a product after sun exposure, it is a good idea to determine if sensitive skin is really the cause or something else.
How can I tell if you have sensitive skin?
In general, sensitive skin is thin with visible broken capillaries under the skin surface. Sensitive skin also has fine pores. When exposed to moderate temperature changes, sensitive skin reddens easily, either from cold or heat. Sensitive skin easily tends to rash when exposed to dirt or even moderate skin care products. If your skin shows these signs, chances are high that you have really sensitive skin. For a thorough skin examination, a visit to a dermatologist is fine.
As the care of sensitive skin can be quite difficult, it is advisable to limit the use of skin care products. In general, simple skin care regimens are more effective on sensitive skin as it prevents overloading of the product. Sensitive skin care depends on strengthening the skin to reduce sensitivity and increase tolerance.
how to treat sensitive skin
Deliver H2O into your skin
Sensitive skin is prone to dryness that can lead to increased sensitivity. Drinking eight or more glasses of water and applying a light and hypoallergenic moisturizer a day can help restore moisture to the skin or the lipid barrier that acts as a defense mechanism against allergens.
Eat skin-friendly foods
Fruits, vegetables and other water-rich foods are essential to correct skin imbalances. The content of vitamins, minerals and water in these foods moisturizes your skin and restores your health. On the other hand, eating spicy foods and drinking alcohol and drinks with caffeine can increase the sensitivity of your skin.
avoid sun exposure
Exposure to the sun can cause sensitive skin to redden and burn easily. Before leaving, apply sunscreen on your face with sunscreen and on your body with sunscreen. You can extend the protection to your lips to prevent them from darkening. Applying an SPF-rich lip balm under lipstick or shine can help protect your lips. Umbrellas, sunglasses and hats protect your eyes, body and face from overexposure to the sun.
Protect the skin at all times
Even when you’re inside, your skin still needs protection. If you are staying in an air-conditioned room or one with forced heating, apply a light moisturizer frequently. This will prevent the skin from drying out due to extreme temperatures.
Avoid skincare with artificial colors and synthetic fragrances
Fragrances and colorants are added to skin care products only for increased marketing purposes. Your skin does not benefit from these additives. Frequently, Fragrances and colorants even cause allergic reactions and increase the sensitivity of your skin.
In addition to these tips, it is also a good idea to switch to personalized skin care products that are specially formulated for sensitive skin. A thorough skin evaluation and consultation with a PERBETE LAB can reveal techniques and skin care products that can help strengthen your skin and minimize your sensitivity.
