Got sensitive skin? Theres some simple steps you can take to sensitive skin care.
Some people have sensitive skin, some dont. And there are some people with sensitive skin that neednt have sensitive skin.
If you have the symptoms associated with sensitive skin like rashes, blotchiness, redness, swelling, dryness and itchiness and more, then there is some things you can do.
Of course it may always be worthwhile seeing a dermatologist, but before you consult an expert you can try out some, or all of these remedies. Let science wait till youve tried some basic stuff to see if your skin conditions improve.
So if you suffer then the first thing you need to do is to examine all those creams, blushes, foundations, moisturizers and so on that you use now, because it can often be those anti aging skincare products and cosmetics and more that are causing the problem.
I write extensively about the nasty ingredients that are found in many big brand name cosmetics and skin care products on my website.
Here’s an example. Parabens. Parabens is the name of a range of chemicals that are used extensively in many big brand skin care and anti aging products and cosmetics. They are very cheap and are used as a preservative. And parabens are listed in the cosmetics database as a hazard. 2 are listed as a hazard on a scale of 1 to 10 of at least a 7 or 8.
And of course if there are parabens in your cosmetics, say, then this alone could in fact be causing your sensitive skin problems. Maybe or maybe not, but it certainly is worth finding out.
Many big brand cosmetics and skin care products include similar or the same ingredients, and you may well find that if you change your cosmetic brand to a natural non allergenic cosmetic brand many, or all, of your sensitive skin problems go away.
The writer of this article has direct experience of this. My 8 year old daughter had to use cosmetics for her first ballet performance recently. Not something that an 8 year old would normally use, but she did that day.
Within a short time her face had broken out in a rash and we removed the cosmetics and it went away. No more big brand cosmetics for my daughter.
So have a good look at your cosmetics and skin care products and if they’re big brand name products from your local store then the chances are that they have some nasty ingredients in them and that itself could be causing sensitive skin care problems.
And here’s another tip. Use low allergenic laundry detergents because if you’ve got your face on a pillow washed in regular detergent then that may also cause dry skin and sensitive skin care problems. And make sure you rinse everything well. Oh, and avoid those with fragrances, they too can cause problems for those with sensitive skin.
And even for people with oily or healthy skin fragrances can cause problems.
And visit an allergy specialist, they can often determine exactly what it is that is causing a skin allergy or allergic reaction, and if you can isolate what it is then you can try and eliminate that ingredient. It may well be from your skin care products or cosmetics.
What you need to do is to try out a range of low allergenic range of natural cosmetics and natural skin care products and find out how your skin reacts to these. You’ll probably notice an immediate improvement.
Luckily it also turns out that the companies that make the best natural cosmetics and natural anti aging skin care products also make the best products. They are small niche companies making excellent products, and at very competitive prices too.
And the reason why the prices are competitive is because these companies don’t spend huge amounts on TV advertising, in fact they don’t advertise at all. So their costs are way lower. And they rely on their products selling themselves because they work so well.
Most of those big brand name products that you might be buying now will do very little and are made down to a price.
So theres a few things for you to do if you have sensitive skin and are looking for some good sensitive skin care tips. If these dont work then try consulting an expert like a dermatologist, but for many people with skin problems just doing these things will clear up those nasty rashes and blotches and redness and itchiness.
