3 Skin Therapy Home Remedies for Sensitive Skin

If you have sensitive skin then you know what it’s like to deal with skin that easily flares up, and there are many products you have to avoid to prevent redness and itchiness; these highly frustrating symptoms go hand in hand with sensitive skin. If you use commercial products from your local drugstore, you may want to take a closer look at the label, as most commercial skin care products are teeming with foreign sounding ingredients. These unpronounceable ingredients are usually harmful chemicals and fillers added to products to improve the consistency or extend the life of a product, but they are a sensitive complexion’s worst nightmare. Even if your skin is not sensitive, you should want to know exactly what you are applying to your precious skin, as more than 60% of everything you apply to your skin is absorbed into your bloodstream. With a sensitive skin, however, what’s going on inside your body is usually reflected on the outside when your skin turns red and feels tender and hot to the touch. Fortunately, there are a few ways you can soothe your sensitive skin and prevent future flare ups. Keep reading to enjoy calmer and happier skin today!

1. Use Natural Products That Reduce Inflammation

Natural products, free from chemicals, are what every skin needs, especially sensitive skin.

2. Use Lukewarm Water

Again, this is important for all skin types as hot water strips the skin of oils needed to keep your skin hydrated and protected. If your skin is sensitive though, it’s extra important to maintain balanced oil levels to prevent flare ups and irritation. Always use lukewarm to cool water when washing your face, and rinse with cold water for your final rinse to close your pores and tighten your skin.

3. Don’t Over Exfoliate

While exfoliation is important for clear and healthy skin, it only needs to be done once a week, or even once every 2 weeks if your skin is super sensitive. Harsh scrubs can actually scratch the skin and create microscopic tears in the skin, which is the absolute last thing you need if your skin is already sensitive and easily irritated. Don’t let sensitive skin rule your life, switch to healthier products and follow our tips and your skin will stay happy, soothed and beautiful!
