More tips for sensitive skin
Stay away from everyday irritants
When it comes to sensitive skin, the cause of your irritation might be something really basic that you didn’t even consider. A few examples:
- Showers that are too hot and/or too long. Switch things up when you can by having a warm bath instead — and try to limit your soak to around 10 minutes, so you don’t throw your moisture levels out of balance.
- Clothes that are too tight. Constrictive fits that don’t let your skin breathe and scratchy materials that are rough on your body can trigger unnecessary irritation.
-The wrong skincare products. If you’re using something designed for a different skin type, it can throw your pH-balance out of whack and trigger flare-ups. Whenever possible, stick to face creams without alcohol nor perfume, dedicated to the sensitive skin.
Remember: your skin feels your stress. Especially when you have a sensitive complexion. Our bodies process emotional tensions in a lot of different ways — and it can definitely contribute to irritated skin. Prioritizing your mental wellness through calming activities like yoga, reading, and low-impact exercise can directly help improve your sensitive skin’s health. So, always make time for yourself!
