Taking Care Of Sensitive Skin
Frequent allergies, rashes, itching, and redness are just a few of the many signs of sensitive skin. Maintaining the health of your skin is difficult as is, and having sensitive skin makes it so much harder. Sensitive skin requires special care as not all skincare products suit the skin. Read on to know some sensitive skin care tips to give it some much needed TLC.
1. Look For Hypoallergenic Products
Hypoallergenic products are those that contain very few chemicals and are unlikely to cause allergic reactions. Always read the ingredient list of your products and look for any chemicals that may cause your skin to react. When dealing with sensitive skin, less is always more, so look for skincare products that do not contain unnecessary dyes, perfumes, and other strong ingredients that can irritate your skin.
2. Use A Mild Cleanser
Foaming facewashes and cleansers usually have extra chemicals that help the product to foam up. And washing your face with such products requires you to rinse it off with water, which can further dry or aggravate your sensitive skin. Instead, add a rinse-free and mild cleanser like the micellar water to your sensitive skin care routine. Micellar water cleanses your skin without the use of water and is very gentle on your skin. For example, the Garnier Micellar Water is dermatologically tested and contains no parabens, fragrance, or alcohol, making it great for all skin types, including sensitive skin. The Garnier Micellar Water works like a magnet and gently lifts makeup, dust, and dirt from your skin.
3. Wear Sunscreen
When exposed to sunlight for long hours, the harmful ultraviolet sun rays can damage your skin. Limit your time in the sun as much as possible and never step outdoors without applying sunscreen. Sensitive skin is easily triggered by sunrays and it is important to use a high enough SPF to shield your skin from the sun. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects you from both, UVA and UVB rays. Remember, you should even wear sunscreen when it is overcast or cloudy.
4. Soothe Sensitive Skin With A Sheet Mask
Sheet masks are great to quickly give your skin a boost of nourishing goodness and hydration. When your skin is feeling extra dry and sensitive, treat it to a hydrating sheet mask. Try the Garnier Hydra Bomb Pomegranate Serum Sheet Mask to intensely hydrate your sensitive skin and leave it feeling soft and plump. The antioxidant-rich pomegranate extracts in the sheet mask restore and create natural skin moisture and help calm irritated or sensitive skin.
