SIGH…. SKIN SENSITIVITY
You know you have sensitive skin when it reacts to triggers like weather, food, heat, or skincare products. You may experience breakouts, redness, burning sensations, or dryness when this occurs. These sudden changes in your skin may indicate that your skin barrier has been compromised and needs repairing.
The skin barrier is the outermost layer of your skin that serves as a protective shield against free radicals, pollutants, and dust. It locks in skin’s moisture and regulates water loss to keep it dewy, hydrated, and plumped.
WHAT CAN CAUSE A DAMAGED SKIN BARRIER?
An oil-water ratio imbalance will result in a damaged skin barrier. Over-cleansing, cleansing the wrong way, or having additives in our skincare may strip the skin of its natural oils, causing dryness, sensitivity, and irritation. Environmental and lifestyle factors such as stress, pollution, UV damage, and hormonal changes may also lead to an impaired skin barrier.
HERE’S HOW YOU CAN MANAGE SKIN SENSITIVITY:
1) CLEANSE YOUR FACE THE RIGHT WAY
Washing your face twice a day is more than enough! Remember to always remove your makeup and double cleanse before going to bed. Clean your beauty tools such as facial brushes, cleaning gloves, and makeup sponges regularly to remove bacteria, residue, and dirt. Avoid brushing or rubbing your skin too vigorously as it may cause micro-tears, resulting in skin irritations.
2) CHOOSE THE RIGHT SKINCARE PRODUCTS
If you tend to have highly reactive skin, pay extra attention when choosing your skincare products to make sure they don’t damage your skin. Specially formulated for sensitive skin, the Nutox Youth Restoring Advanced Serum Concentrate (for Sensitive Skin) comes with dual benefits of soothing and preserving skin’s youthfulness. Enhanced with age-defying ingredients, this gentle serum penetrates deeply into the skin to speed up its natural production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. It boasts a dermatologically tested and hypoallergenic formula that protects the skin barrier without triggering skin irritation. This serum is also free from additives like parabens, fragrances, colourants, alcohol, and mineral oils. With this serum, you can easily achieve youthful-looking skin!
3) PROTECT YOUR SKIN
During the pandemic, we wear masks to protect ourselves. Due to the friction between face masks and skin, people with dry or sensitive skin may experience peeling, irritation, and redness. Hence, moisturising the skin is the best thing you can do! Apply Nutox Youth Restoring Moisture Emulsion SPF 30PA+ after toner as it adds a protective layer that retains moisture. Don’t forget to include night protection – Nutox Youth Restoring Night Cream in your routine too!
4) BUILD THE RIGHT SKINCARE REGIME
Matching your skin type and concerns to the right products is the best way to get optimal results for youthful skin. For people with sensitive skin, it is recommended to use products from one skincare range. Keep your skincare routine simple as it helps minimise the possibilities of getting a skin reaction.
