Sensitive skin

  1. Moisturize and hydrate

    The skin is composed of over 60% of water. Due to different outside influences, it can lose water. That is why the outside and inside hydration and keeping it well-moisturized will help the skin maintain its protective role. The healthy look of the skin comes from the well-balanced water cells. The sensitive skin is prone to dryness and that is why you need to keep it moisturized all of the time. This can be done using products that are rich in moisturizing ingredients. Some even have a 72-hour effect and lock the moisture inside. This makes the skin look plumped, healthy and glowing. Alongside the topical application of moisturizing products, it is very important to hydrate your body. Drinking lots of water will make the skin look good, the complexion will be healthier and the dry skin will become more elasticized. Water stimulates the rejuvenation of skin cells, which over some time, will result in lesser wrinkles and fine lines.

  2. Regulate your diet

    Like many other conditions, skin sensitivity can be triggered by the food that we insert. Although fast food, sodas, and sweets are something that no one can stay away from, it is best to focus on something else which will benefit your sensitive skin. Fresh juices and lots of water is what keeps the skin hydrated from the inside.

  3. Sun protection is crucial

    Protection from the sun is crucial and important for keeping your skin healthy. The skin sensitivity is easily triggered by the harsh sun rays, which can result in redness, itchiness, and irritation. That is why the protection from the sun consists of several things. Wearing a hat with a wide brim will throw a nice shade over the face, keeping it safe from direct sun rays and it is a fashionable thing too. Wearing shades will also protect the area around the eyes and the cheeks. And wearing sunscreen with a high protection factor is something that must be considered at all times, not just in the summer.

  4. Choose suitable cosmetics

    Just like the skincare line, choosing suitable makeup can play a great role in the good look of your skin. The beauty and makeup market today offers lots of different products that are specially designed for sensitive skin. They are rich in moisturizing ingredients, vitamins and are free of fragrance and other things that might irritate the skin additionally. Although some might consider that makeup covers all, the redness and the irritation might be only worsened by the use of inappropriate and unsuitable makeup. That is why you should always look for the sign “Fragrance-Free” and “No artificial colors” on the label of the makeup and cosmetics you are buying.

  5. Switch to BB creams

    BB cream stands for beauty balm. These balms are lighter than the foundations. With that, they offer lighter and sheer coverage and they do not dry the skin too much. They are usually infused with rich doses of vitamins and cocktails, as well as hydration particles necessary for those with sensitive skin. BB creams are a much better choice and an option for sensitive skin instead of foundation. They contain fewer pigments, contrary to the foundations that are rich in them and tend to increase the dryness of the skin. That way the skin will look more natural and healthy instead of dry and cracked at the places. Basically, they cover, care and protect all in one.
