With hectic lives that most millennials lead these days, it is hardly a surprise that our skins start to act up, ever so frequently. From bustling AM routines, office work & life to managing a happening social circle and household responsibilities, our unhealthy schedules cause havoc on the skin. Having sensitive skin is not a type, but a concern that has more to do with how we treat our skin and body than genetics or what we are born with. We have come up with a simple routine with some quick tips that you can follow to heal that beautiful skin which deserves nothing but the best! Read on to find out.
When you have sensitive skin, it can lead to severe redness, itching, etc when subjected to harsh temperatures. Be it extreme cold, or heat, make sure to cleanse your face with a gentle and mild face wash twice a day to remove all traces of dirt and dust from your skin. Pick a face wash that is soap-free with no harmful chemicals so that it does no further harm.
#ProTip – Since sensitive skin is vulnerable to extreme temperatures, make sure to not take very hot/cold showers that could further dry out your skin causing redness or itching.
Sensitive skin needs all the protection it can get. Double cleanse your skin with a gentle and alcohol-free toning mist that will help hydrate and balance your skin. Not all dust particles can be removed with a simple cleansing ritual and sometimes a little extra step goes a long way with sensitive skin.
#ProTip – Quit touching your face! We can’t say that enough. Our hands carry a lot of germs that can pass on to our face.
The skin on our face meets a lot of extremities every day, from harsh heat to severe cold temperatures. Indulge in a healthy moisturiser that will help nourish and protect your skin. Moisturising is an essential step in healing sensitive skin, pick the one that works for your skin type. For dry skin, pick a heavy oil-based one, whereas for oily skin, pick a lightweight water-based moisturiser.
#ProTip – Make sure to pick a moisturiser that is free from harmful chemicals and artificial fragrances as that may further aggravate your skin woes.
