8 Tips for Protecting Your Sensitive Skin…..

by Sally Wong……

……those with sensitive skin often need help keeping their skin free from irritation. Rashes, burns, hives, and more can make life agonizing for people with sensitive skin.

Thankfully, the following eight tips will help your skin feel more comfortable and relaxed for extended periods of time. Try them out right away to get the skin healing you need.

1. Proper Diet Can Do Wonders

One thing that those with sensitive skin need to understand is the power of a healthy and clean diet. Avoiding chemical-rich foods and focusing on natural and healthy items (like fruits and vegetables),

……will flush toxins out of your skin and help manage some of its sensitivity. Water and fresh juice are particularly healing for those with sensitive skin.

2. Always Do A Skin Test Before Trying a Product

Those who have sensitive skin need to perform a simple skin test before using a product. This test will ensure that your skin doesn't get irritated by it.

It can also help isolate certain ingredients that may be harsher on your skin by allowing you to test multiple products with the same items.

Follow these steps when doing a product skin test:

* Clean a one-inch area of your arm
* Use a small spoon to apply the product to that area
* Work the product into your skin
* Wait a day to gauge irritation

If your skin is irritated by the product……

…..it is best to avoid using it. Give it to a friend who doesn't have sensitive skin to avoid wasting it. In the future, try to avoid products that use the ingredients that may be irritating your skin.

3. Start the day with moisturizer

Daily exposure to the elements can ravage sensitive skin. That's why it is of particular importance to start each day with an application of moisturizer. This application helps to minimize your skin's water loss.

When your skin is dry, it will be even more sensitive to the environment. You should also apply moisturizer at night to avoid dry skin while you are sleeping.

4. Avoid Excessive Soap Use

When taking a shower or washing your skin, it is important to use a minimal amount of soap. Even all-natural soap products can rob your skin of precious moisture.

Focus your soap use on areas that truly need it, such as dirty areas of the body. Washing and rinsing your groin, butt, feet, and armpits should be all you need to eliminate nasty body odor.

5. Understand the Nature of Hypoallergenic Products

Those with sensitive skin often suffer from allergies that increase the severity of the problem. Many will buy hypoallergenic products under the assumption that they can help protect their skin.

The problem here is that most of these products aren't designed for those with sensitive skin. Always try these products out before you buy them and research their effects on the skin.

6. Use Sunscreen Properly

Excessive sun exposure is particularly dangerous to those with sensitive skin. It can cause rashes, sunburns, and more. That's why you should wear SPF 30 sunscreen every time you go outdoors.

Try to find one that uses all-natural ingredients, such as zinc oxide, to minimize an adverse reaction with your sensitive skin.

7. Clean with Warm, Not Hot, Water

Bathing with hot water can be a soothing activity for many people, but those with sensitive skin should avoid it. It will not only steal precious moisture from their skin but can cause irritation and even slight burns.

Warm water is preferable for those with sensitive skin because it will wash the body without agitating the skin. Try to choose a water temperature that is comfortable for your skin and your body.

8. Don't forget Essential Oils

Essential oils are one of the great secrets for protecting those with sensitive skin. Choosing the right essential oils can help keep your skin well moisturized and safe from harsh weathering elements.

A few that work well include olive oil, argan oil, grapeseed oil, and coconut oil. Choosing between the various types will depend on which you enjoy on your face. For example, coconut oil is a little “flakier” than grapeseed oil, which may create a texture that is too “thick” for some people.

You Can Do This!!!

Living with sensitive skin can feel like a burden that is too difficult to bear. However, you can manage your sensitive skin with these excellent tips.

So get to work managing your skin and get ready to live the fun life that you deserve!
