There are many different skin types – normal, dry, oily, combination, and sensitive skin. Sensitive skin is called so because the skin reacts differently to certain products and external factors that would otherwise not occur if the skin type was normal.
If your skin is prone to rashes, gets flushed easily, gets itchy when exposed to new products, and causes a stinging sensation whilst using some beauty products and/or is prone to frequent breakouts, then you have sensitive skin. The maintenance of sensitive skin is trickier than normal skin because there’s a large number of dos and don’ts. There’s no simple checklist that a person with sensitive skin can follow because every person’s skin reacts differently to different triggers. Hence, it becomes absolutely essential to figure out on your own what skincare regime works best for you utilizing the hit and trial method.
In this article, we explore a number of steps a person with sensitive skin should follow to ensure the best results for their skin.
The most important skincare routine a person with sensitive skin should follow is cleansing. It is absolutely imperative to keep your skin clean at all times. You never know what is a trigger for outbreaks. A gentle cleanser must be used that has been tried and tested on your skin to render the best results.
Hydrated skin is healthy skin. It doesn’t come as a surprise that moisturizer does wonders for your skin. It’s important to not use too much or too little moisturizer. The aim is to use the moisturizer to improve the performance of your own skin’s oils to get the natural glow. Make sure you’re using a moisturizer that’s tailormade for your skin type to avoid any harsh side effects. The Wonder Gold Oil from Indulgeo Essentials is a potent solution to soothe sensitive skin to make it perfect and flawless while hydrating it intensely.
Do not go to bed with makeup. You need to let your skin breathe on its own when you’re resting at night. Use a gentle makeup remover to rid your face of makeup after a long day and gently pat dry before going to bed. Do not leave makeup on your skin longer than needed as this may cause rashes or other side effects. Use organic toners and organic makeup oil for the best results.
If you have sensitive skin, you probably steer clear of face scrubs or masks. It’s important to note that these play a major role in ridding your face of makeup, dirt, and oil that may aggravate sensitive skin. Keep in mind to use a mild facial scrub or natural masks that are specifically designed for sensitive skin. Remember to use organic products as they work best for sensitive skin. You can procure the Sensitive Skin Combo which includes the Aqua Gold Gel, Wonder Gold oil and Chamomile Roman Witch Hazel which give you the exotic and novel effects of these organic products to nourish your sensitive skin.
Hydration is key! We know this a term we hear often but with good reason. Keeping your body hydrated and healthy reflects on your skin. Drink a good amount of water and healthy foods that aren’t too oily to ensure clearer skin and fewer outbursts.
Sun protection is also a must for any skin type but even more so for sensitive skin. Exposure to the harmful rays of the sun often drastically changes your skin tones, makes you more vulnerable to skin pores, wrinkles, and textural imperfections. It is important to add a good sunscreen to your list of cosmetics that suit your skin type. Never step out of your house without applying some sunscreen first.
While following all these steps, the most important one is to choose your product carefully. Gentle products that do not contain a lot of chemicals is the best way to go. Avoid products that contain a lot of acid or alcohol as these are irritants. It’s best to opt for fragrance-free products. While this may not sound too appealing at first, it pays off in the long run. Also, avoid harsh detergents to wash your clothes as this too interacts with your skin. Avoid products made of artificial dyes or blends as this also irritates sensitive skin. Visit our shop at Indulgeo Essentials to find a range of organic products that are suitable for sensitive skin.
Last but not least, attempt to maintain a skincare journal. This helps you keep track of all the products you’ve tried and how your skin reacted to them to avoid mistakes in the future.
