Sensitive Skin Care: Gentle Products and Best Practices

Sensitive Skin Care: Gentle Products and Best Practices

Sensitive skin

Dealing with sensitive skin? You’re not alone. When the products and skin care techniques you use aren’t a good fit for you, especially when you have psoriasis or eczema, it can be tough to create the look that you want. At Skin Care Research, our team is constantly working through clinical trials to push the science of dermatology forward. Here, we’ll take a look at our top tips and products for sensitive skin.

Look for Gentle Options

It’s key that you stay away from fragrances, dyes, and alcohol in your skin care products. While these ingredients are found in many products, they can be drying and irritating, especially for those with sensitive skin, psoriasis, or eczema.

Wear Sunscreen

Wearing sunscreen daily can help your skin heal and stay protected against the elements. It’s important to wear sunscreen even if you aren’t going outside, as exposure to UV rays from windows can contribute to skin damage.

Wash Your Face With Care

There’s no need to use scalding hot water or intense exfoliators when you’re washing your face. Taking your time–about 60 seconds total–to wash your face can make a world of difference without using harsh chemicals or methods. Gently massage your face with your cleanser, giving the beneficial ingredients of your skincare routine plenty of time to skin in.

See a Professional

If your at-home methods to help your sensitive skin aren’t working, it’s important to reach out to a dermatologist for an evaluation and product recommendations. A dermatologist will be able to tell you what’s causing your skin irritation and prescribe the right products to help you get back on track, if necessary. If you notice that your sensitive skin flares up with certain products, be sure to mention this to your dermatologist so they can get to the root of the issue.
