Having sensitive skin can be very difficult for some. It is hard to understand what products you should and shouldn’t use in order to make your skin feel good. Cleansing sensitive skin is part of these misconceptions, it’s not as simple as just choosing any cleanser and washing your face as you always did. Here we lay out some tips on how to clean your sensitive skin without harming it.
All skin is different, and it is important to know how yours works. Your cleansing regime and skincare routine depend mostly on this. For example, if your skin is dry, you may not have to use a cleanser day and night, you could just use lukewarm water in the morning and deeply cleanse at night. While if your skin is oily, you could even wash your face three times a day if you exercise or sweat. As a base, always choose gentle products when cleansing sensitive skin.
The amount of times you need to use them will depend on your sebum production, but the ingredients of the cleanser should always be gentle and mild, without any alcohol or fragrances. Avoid exfoliators or scrubs when applying the cleanser, you don’t want to irritate your skin even more. Apply the product gently with your fingertips, use lukewarm water and pat dry with a soft towel. After the actual cleansing is done, keep your skincare routine simple. Moisturize with a gentle cream, you can choose between a rich or light formula depending on your needs. Apply just a layer of this product, and if possible, get added SPF during the day. If you love skincare and you want to take extra care of your skin, you could add a natural oil after your moisturiser. However, choose a really gentle oil that doesn’t have any chemicals or fragrances added to the formula. In the end, all you have to do is to treat your skin with care and it will love you back.
