How To Cope With Sensitive Skin
Commonly sensitive skin is associated with conditions such as Eczema, Psoriasis and Dermatitis, but you may be surprised to hear that if you have ever experienced dryness, tightness, flaking, redness or itching chances are that you have experienced sensitive skin. Good news is we're here to let you know that sensitive skin doesn't have to be a burden and that with a few smart changes to your skin care routine you can experience relief from irritations and enjoy healthy skin again!
1. Simplify Your Skin Care Routine
Bombarding sensitive skin with a multitude of different products is not going to help it calm down it's likely to lead to increased/prolonged flare-ups. Following a Cleanse, Treat, Hydrate skin care routine with products specially formulated for sensitive skin will assist to bring your skin back into balance.
2. Know Your Skin Care
Sensitive skin needs extra gentle attention that will nourish and moisturise the skin to soothe irritations, so it's essential that your products contain ingredients that assist with this. When choosing face care products try to avoid any harsh cleansers that will strip away essential oils or synthetic moisturisers that may miss the mark when it comes to soothing and hydrating the skin. Research is the key when it comes to looking for the best sensitive skin care products!
3. Choose A Quality Moisturiser
Moisturisation plays a huge role in revitalising sensitive skin, it assists in restoring essential nutrients and also assures your skin is well protected from free radical damage that can further irritate the skin. However, not all moisturisers are created equal! When it comes to choosing a natural moisturiser for sensitive skin you can't go past Botáni's Olive Skin Serum. Containing plant active Olive Squalene, the serum has a natural affinity with the Squalene found in our skin. It is, therefore, able to be immediately absorbed to deliver vital nutrients to the skin and provide protection against further damage. This unique non-greasy serum is the best solution to sensitive skin and is an essential skin care product for any sensitive skin care routine.
