A Guide To Sensitive Skin Care

May 18, 2010 on 3:01 pm | In Skincare | No Comments

If you have sensitive skin, you will already know that it can make your life quite difficult. Climate has an effect on sensitive skin and so on your sensitive skin care routine. One of the first things you should do is stay away from most commercial cosmetic products, because they contain severe chemicals. However, there are people with sensitive skin who do not know it yet, so how can you know if you have sensitive skin?

Some of the most obvious indications are when:

you get skin issues when you shave; the weather can affect your skin; you get skin irritations for no obvious reason; some soaps and detergents irritate your skin; you have to be very discerning when choosing cosmetics.

Extreme weather conditions will make skin care more demanding for everyone, but especially if you have sensitive skin. The first step to take is to select products labeled ‘For Sensitive Skin’. It is a good idea to keep notes on each sensitive skin care product you buy and try. Your notes should embrace information such as product name, constituents, weather conditions, temperature and your skin’s response to it.

Thin skin is the primary cause of sensitive skin. Skin is thicker on some parts of our bodies than other parts, but skin also tends to get thinner as we get older. The reason that thin skin is more sensitive is that the deeper layers of skin have less protection from the elements, temperature and chemicals.

Therefore, you can safeguard your sensitive skin care from the sun by wearing sunscreen. You should also steer clear of harsh brushes and strongly scented soaps and.detergents. If you consider that you have to use an exfoliant, try making your own. There are loads of recommendations and recipes on the Internet, but olive oil and brown sugar mixed to a thick paste is a good one.

Try using hypo-allergenic skin care products, because they are usually aimed at people with sensitive skin. Perfumes and after shaves can be harsh, so it is worth checking the labels before using anything. It is better to read the label before smelling, because then your selection will only be out of ones that are suitable for your skin type.
