Those with sensitive skin knows all too well the struggles of having sensitive skin. Sensitive skin people are easily susceptible to rashes, redness, harmful skin irritations and painful bumps. Here are four tips to apply in your everyday life to help soothe and calm sensitive skin.
1. Avoid Harsh Exfoliators
Avoiding harsh exfoliators or irritating ingredients such as fragrances and alcohols is a great rule-of-thumb when buying skincare for sensitive skin.
2. Avoid extremely hot or cold water
Avoiding very hot or very cold water and not touching your skin are also preventative measures for irritation and dryness. Frequent irritation from using products with harsh ingredients can cause the skin to become sensitive, so always patch test your skincare products and check ingredients so you can find out what works for you.
3. Watch your diet
External factors that can cause sensitive skin include a poor diet, overconsumption of alcohol, smoking, and frequent dehydration. Monitoring your consumption habits of food, alcohol, cigarettes, and water is a great way to achieve healthier skin.
4. Take Care Of Your Mental Health
Another factor that impacts skin sensitivity is stress. Traumatic or negative stress can greatly affect your whole body, physically and emotionally, which can all take tolls on your skin. Managing your stress levels and taking time for yourself to relax can lower the level of stress hormones in your body, improving your internal and external health.
