Is your skin red and irritated? Is it peeling, tight, itchy and even burning? That means you have sensitive or intolerant skin.
Sensitive skin can be due to many things:
The key to healthy looking skin is to take care of it every day, starting with a good cleansing, morning and night. Here are the steps you need to follow.
1) Gently cleanse the skin with lukewarm (not hot) water. Use an unscented cleansing lotion for intolerant sensitive skin. Use small circular motions. Go gently. Do not rub, since this could irritate or dry out your skin.
2) Pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Do not rub.
3) Place a dime-size amount of cream in your palm. Using your fingertips, apply evenly to your neck and face. Gently massage it in with small circular motions. Start from the centre of your face and work your way outward. Quick tip: Choose a product specially formulated for you, for example, Aveeno cream for intolerant skin. It contains non-irritating active ingredients that will be suitable for your skin. Select a rich, nourishing, unscented cream that will help your skin restore its protective barrier and soothe irritation.
Going outside? Add a high protection, lightweight and matte sunscreen to your daily beauty routine. Sunscreen is a must when you have sensitive, fragile skin. Don’t forget to reapply it throughout the day. This will offer your skin optimal protection and help keep your complexion looking radiant even longer!
