Sensitive skin is one which is not able to bear any unfavourable environmental conditions, very easily prone to allergies and which easily gets irritated on contact with foreign materials like dust,pollutant and skin care products. Sensitive skin care requires more attention.
The degree of sensitivity varies from person to person as some are more sensitive as compared to others.
Here are a few tips regarding sensitive skin care:
Always go for sensitive skin care products only (i.e. the products that are marked for sensitive skin care only). Always, read the instructions written on the product to see if there are specific restrictions/warnings associated with the product).
Always choose that product that has minimum preservatives, colourings and other additives.
Do not use toners which are alcohol based and are not recommended for sensitive skin. Rose water can be used as a natural toner.
Avoid excessive exposure to sun. Never forget to apply sunscreen before stepping out.
Avoiding exposure to dust and other pollutants is also important for sensitive skin care. So, cover yourself adequately before moving out.
Use noncomedogenic moisturizer.
Use soap free and alcohol free cleansers. Cleanse your face atleast twice a day.
Do not scrub or exfoliate too hard. It can cause reddishness.Do not leave the makeup on for too long. Use hypoallergenic makeup removers.
So, sensitive skin care is very different from the normal skin care. Sensitive skin care requires more attention.
