Tips for Sensitive Skin Care

Post by ANJANI TETLI on Mon Oct 19, 2009 9:06 pm

Sensitive skin care is more than just choosing the right sensitive skin
care product. To provide the best sensitive skin care, you need an
overall approach to providing the best possible care.

skin has a low tolerance level to certain products or environmental
conditions. People with sensitive skin may react quickly to chemicals,
heat or wind by developing red, blotchy and irritated skin. Different
people have different levels of skin sensitivity. Some people may react
to a product, while for others it produces no effect. Similarly, some
people may have a very severe reaction, while others only have a mild
reaction.Problems Faced by People with Sensitive Skin

with sensitive skin face many problems. The redness, irritation and
blotchiness associated with sensitive skin can be uncomfortable and
embarrassing. It can be annoying having to avoid everything that may
cause sensitive skin to flare up. Providing the right sensitive skin
care can be particularly difficult, as many skin products will have a
negative effect.Dealing with Sensitive Skin


skin care can be an effective way of treating sensitive skin. Natural
products are less likely to trigger the reaction that other products
may have on sensitive skin. Here are some of the best natural ways to
treat sensitive skin.

Food Intake and Hydration

can play a big part in sensitive skin break outs. A healthy diet
(containing plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables) will help skin look
healthy. People with sensitive skin should pay attention to their diet
and take note if any foods seem to trigger a sensitive skin reaction.
Even some healthy foods may cause a reaction in some people, so do not
discount these when you look at possible triggers. Hot and spicy foods
are particularly likely to cause a negative effect.

People with
healthy skin should also drink lots of water, which will help keep
their skin hydrated. When skin is adequately hydrated, it is healthier
and better able to fight off skin irritations.

Herbal Remedies

remedies are very good for sensitive skin, because they are free from
the harsh chemicals that can cause skin problems. Generally, products
that contain natural ingredients will be better for your skin and less
likely to cause a sensitive skin reaction. Try the following remedies
for some special sensitive skin care.

  • Use almond or jojoba oil to cleanse your face.
  • Comfrey steeped in water can make a good toner.
  • Make a facial exfoliate by mixing grapefruit with oatmeal.
  • Make a face mask out of fruit.
  • Cucumber and yoghurt also makes a good face mask for sensitive skin.
  • Licorice is a good product for sensitive skin. Look for skin care products that contain licorice.
  • Green tea has anti-inflammatory properties, which may help prevent sensitive skin reactions.
  • Aloe Vera can soothe skin that is red, irritated and blotchy. Apply directly to the skin.

Even when using natural products, people with sensitive skin need to be
careful. As some sensitive skin reactions are caused by allergies, even
organic products may cause an adverse reaction in someone. Check every
product on a small area of your skin first, and stop using a product if
it seems to be triggering the symptoms associated with sensitive skin.
