The Ultimate Savior for Extremely Sensitive Skin (including Acne Prone Skin)
The Ultimate Savior for Extremely Sensitive Skin (including Acne Prone skin)
Today, the number of people claimed to have sensitive have increased significantly around the world. While sensitive skin is more like a symptom, not a diagnosis, it is important to find out if you have sensitive skin, so that you can make the right decision with your skincare products.
One of the main causes of sensitive (or sensitized) skin, is due to the increasing use of irritants on our skin. Some common irritants you can find in skincare ingredients include alcohol, fragrance, essential oils, formaldehyde and parabens. Another reason could be the over-use of active ingredients, such as vitamin c, retinol, salicylic acids, BHA and so on.
At this stage, it is important to look at your skincare products and find out the culprit to your sensitized skin. A few actions we recommend to start with:
- Reduce the use of active ingredients. Use your vitamin C and retinol serum every other day.
- Exfoliate your skin only once a week, use chemical exfoliant instead of physical ones.
- Avoid excessive sun exposure, always use a sunscreen when you are out and about.
- Use skincare products with a minimal ingredient list.
