9 Essential Tips By Dermatologists For Living With Sensitive Skin
The various mixtures of skincare items available in the market often create a challenge and confusion in our minds. On many occasions, you try different products after reading the guided manual and end up in regret. Dermatologists say not every skin type is similar to one another, and each of them has different needs. If you have sensitive skin, you know any product will not be applicable, for it may cause skin temper tantrums.
How Will You Understand Skin Sensitivity?
Unnecessary irritation, redness, or patches on the skin after applying any skincare product. These are the primary symptoms, which trigger sensitive skin types. It may be due to a specified ingredient used in the cream or lotion that is not suitable for your skin. Therefore, visiting dermatologists before using any skincare product is always the best idea.
Here are nine fabulous tips, which are recommended by dermatologists for better maintenance of the sensitive skin.
1 - Check The Ingredients
Use few products on your skin that have fewer ingredients. Generally, this is the most effective way to save your skin from external damage.
Try avoiding chemicals like sulfate, phosphorous phallates in the list. These contents are harmful to your skin. Instead, go for herbal or botanical-based skin items.
By any chance, you notice burning or irritation in your skin; the skin experts always advise keeping a soothing anti-inflammatory product in your home.
2 - Do a Patch Testing
Patch experiment is like a holy grail for sensitive skin. After investing in the skincare lotion or cream, always apply a little amount behind your ears or elbow. Check if you are getting any irritation or burning sensation. In case you find there is some kind of issue, then immediately wash it and try cooling the area. You can apply ice for this purpose.
3 - Never Over Wash
Dermatologists always are in favor of the exfoliation of dry skin cells. Again, in the case of your sensitive skin, this is not favorable for you. Over washing or cleansing, your skin may cause rashes or extreme dryness. Many doctors claim the lip, and protein percentage of the sensitive skin goes for a toss due to over-cleaning. Therefore washing your body or face once or twice is good to be on the safer side.
4 - Buying New Products
Retinoids in skin products create a lot of irritation for sensitive users. Kindly go slow if you are introducing any new skincare product to your skin. Dermatologists say use the latest products for three nights first. Then gradually, you can increase the frequency of those products.
- Do not mix one or two products and apply them to the skin. This may also result in redness or rashes. Your eye area is susceptible to the rest of the body parts. Therefore, take care and avoid applying anything over there.
- In any case, after discussing with your doctor, retinoid is applied on the skin; then, make sure to dilute it with gentle moisturizers. If you find any irritation or side effects, then you can use alpha hydroxyl acid content ingredients. Lactic acid-containing products are best to fight against the retinoid effects.
5 - Stay Away From Few Things
Restrict the time of your bathing. You can indulge in short shower activities. You can use soaps, cleansers, moisturizers, etc. that are gentle. These should be free of synthetic fragrance. Again, abrasive scrubbers should be avoided. You can go for essential oil treatments, for instance, lavender or olive oil.
- In any way, you have to understand that skin sensitivity creates irritation once the lipid layer of the skin tampers. Therefore, whatever you apply should not trigger and mess around with the lipid and protein layer of the skin.
- Many dermatologists believe that fragrances tend to cause allergy once they come in contact with your skin cells. You may choose the products, which are labeled as “unscented” or “fragrance-free.”
6 - Make-Up Essentials By Skin Care Experts
You have sensitive skin, which does not mean you cannot do any makeup. Dermatologist opines that minimum make up is a remarkable thing for you. Choose hypoallergenic brands and products. In this context, it is also vital to know FDA approval should be mentioned in those products.
- While applying any makeup, if you see any tiny rash or acne, then stop it immediately. Never use any contour or foundation base if you are already suffering from acne or pimples on your skin.
- Often, non-mineral based makeups cause more irritation as they contain harmful chemicals in them. You should also look for lightweight; no clogging make up brands.
- However, the doctors always suggest before going outdoor, you should apply firm SPF based moisturizers. So, this is necessary for your skin coverage from the harmful UV rays. Otherwise, redness and patches may appear. For sensitive skin, the SPF range should be 30-35.
- Not only the application of makeup should be taken care of but also the removal process. You should always use mild cleansers to do the procedure.
7 - Benefits Of Collagen Masks
Improve the blood flow in your skin and convert it more thickly from thin once you turn 30. You should try the natural masks, which contain collagen and boost the hyaluronic acid in your sensitive skin for the betterment.
8 - Why Saying No To Alcohol Can Bless You?
Skin experts and doctors strongly opine that your beauty products should not contain ethanol/alcohol. Even you should refrain from consuming alcohol. If sensitive skin already has issues like rosacea or psoriasis, alcohol can degrade the conditions. Therefore, limiting or restricting the consumption of hard drinks is a brilliant idea.
9 - Caution While Wearing Metals
Mostly it is seen nickel causes skin allergies or rashes. Often women wearing nickel earrings may notice redness or itchiness around ear lobes. Therefore, doctors suggest wearing silver is the best option for sensitive skin other than copper or nickel.
Always remember the skin acts as the mirror and shows signs of the things that your body does not permit. Therefore, be very careful with your diet chart. For instance, if you are lactose intolerant, then consuming dairy products may result in acne on your sensitive skin. Consult a nutritionist to make a healthy diet format and get proper sleep. A healthy lifestyle can prevent any skin issue.
GRWM! New products and some old!
Hello everyone! I did another GRWM using some new and old products! First I started off with a primer. I used e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer I was actually really surprised by this. It reminded me of Tachas silk canvas primer. It went on smoothly and did a good job of blurring my skin. I will say though after I looked at my makeup in the mirror up close it did settle a bit into my pores and my creases and was pretty noticeable. Overall I think this is a good product and will work for people with smoother skin. e.l.f. - 16HR Camo Concealer Then I used the elf concealer. I love this concealer. I’ve used it so many other times in my other videos. WINKY LUX - Diamond Powder Foundation Then I used the winky lux foundation. This actually went on so nicely and was super natural looking. I love how it’s so weightless and decreases shine. I would recommend this for people with oilier skin. the CRÈME shop - "Macro Brow" Angled Brow Pencil + Spooley Then i used macro brow. This is just to fill in the last bits of my eyebrow to look fuller. It’s easy to use and has a great price point. I just wish the pigment was a little easier to apply. You have to push so hard. RITUEL DE FILLE - Rare Light Crème Luminizer My favorite brand of highlighters ever. Just so pretty and pigmented. All natural and cruelty free. An amazing brand overall. 💞 fresh - Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 I used a tinted fresh lip treatment. Love the way they hydrate and the subtle color it gives off. They also smell and taste really good 😂. Hope you enjoyed getting ready with me! Let me know if you have any questions about the products I used.
Curology vs The Ordinary! Which is better?!
Curology - Curology formula This is the first photo! Did wonders for my skin it was the best it had ever been since I started getting acne in middle school. Curology literally saved my skin, it was clear and great! (Over a year later) The second photo:/ I decided to stop using curology around 2 months ago and start using ordinary products. I decided to do this because I wanted to see if the ordinary could do the same thing as curology and maybe make my skin even better. This wasn’t because curology was bad or anything It was just something I wanted to test. I was pretty confident in my skin so I didn’t think it would be bad. I saw on social media how great it was so I figured why not? ... After slowly introducing ordinary products into my skincare routine to ( i used both ordinary and curology products together) I could see that my skin was breaking out more when I introduced the ordinary products. I didn’t think much of it cause I knew that my skin was just purging from the new products. After about 2 months of using both curology and ordinary products I decided to just try ordinary products because my skin was breaking out a lot and I felt that the ordinary would help it. (I think should’ve stuck with curology but this was just my curiosity about the product). ... (Now) I am on week 6 of using all ordinary products and this is what my skin looks like (photo 2) and I’m not happy with the results:/The first couple weeks I knew I would be purging, my skin was at its worst a couple weeks ago (week 3). But I figured that by now or next week my skin would be clear( the only reason I felt that my skin would be pretty much clear by now or next week was because while using curology all my acne was gonna by week 7). So I’m still trying to figure out if I wanna continue to use the ordinary products for a couple more weeks before I give up because it’s not giving me the results I want. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I don’t really know how to rate this because obviously it hasn’t worked for my skin very well but I’m not sure if it’s because my skin needs more time to adjust (it has been 6 weeks so...). I think that this product works great for some people but for me definitely not. Right from the start of using it, it broke me out and then once I only used this line of products it made my skin terrible. I also used The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution Which didn’t do much in the 6weeks I used it. I did feel like it helped my acne a little. Overall I really did wish this line of products would help my acne and make my skin clear like curology but that wasn’t the case. This product line is definitely not for my skin. I’ll write out my skin care routine comparisons in my next post!
