When it comes to skincare, there are some general things we can do. You know, the common advice – use lotions, avoid chemicals, stay hydrated.
Of course, most of this works for all types of skin, including sensitive skin. But what things can we do for sensitive skin specifically?
Today I have some tips for those of us dealing with sensitive skin. Whether you’re having a breakout right now, or trying to avoid one in the future, this article is for you!
Sensitive skin can certainly fall onto a spectrum. You may not even know you have sensitive skin until it meets a certain cosmetic product or ingredient. Sensitive skin is usually a symptom of another condition and – in most cases – isn’t overly serious. But it can be uncomfortable and inconvenient.
When your skin is overly sensitive, you want to be sure to take extra care of it. Otherwise, it could be a downward spiral.
For example, if your skin is overly dry, and it gets bothered by an ingredient or even more dried out, it can become itchy, inflamed, and aggravated. Then you’ve got a worse problem on your hands (joke intended, thank you).
If you have an ongoing skin issue, such as chronic dryness, itchiness, bumps, rashes, or anything else that seems unusual and is persisting, don’t hesitate to see a doctor. In most cases, you may need a medical cream that can help your skin heal and get back to normal. There are a range of skin conditions that your doctor can help you pinpoint and treat.
In the meantime, if you’re looking to take it easy on your skin or avoid another breakout altogether, keep reading!
If you have sensitive skin, I hope that these tips help you and your skin keep as healthy as possible!
