5 Ways To Boost Your Skincare Routine If You Have Sensitive Skin.
Not all skincare products are suitable for sensitive skin, which can be problematic if you have this skin type but still want to pamper your face. If you have sensitive skin, you’ll need to consider several factors when purchasing new skincare products, including the ingredients used in them and the intensity of their effects. If you have sensitive skin, here are five ways to boost your skincare routine if you have sensitive skin.
1) Stick to your routine
Having a solid skincare routine can make all of the difference when it comes to having great skin. However, it’s easy to let yourself get distracted and go off track from time to time, which is why I always recommend incorporating simple steps into your skincare regimen that will help you get back on track if you fall off.
2) Don’t skimp on the sunscreen
It’s easy to forget sunscreen in your skincare routine, but it’s an important step to protect your skin from UV damage. Try using your fingers instead of a brush when applying sunscreen—you’ll be able to more evenly coat every surface of your face and be gentler on your sensitive skin.
3) Go easy on essential oils
While essential oils are often touted as skincare’s answer to natural healing, many people with sensitive skin can actually be allergic to them. Luckily all of our products that contain beautiful oils, are scientifically tested by a cosmetic chemist to be fine to use on sensitive skin.
4) Use gentle exfoliants
An exfoliant helps remove dead skin cells, which gives your skin a glowing, rejuvenated appearance. The same can’t be said for harsh scrubs or microdermabrasion treatments, which can damage sensitive skin and cause irritation. Instead of going overboard with a sugar-based scrub or anything else that feels too abrasive on your skin, opt for a gentle exfoliant every few days to keep your complexion looking smooth and even. Our Davidson Plum Rich Night Cream is a double-action ‘hydrate and exfoliate’ cream that deeply moisturises the skin with Jojoba Oil and Shea Butter, whilst providing an added exfoliating action with apple-derived Malic Acid and Pomegranate to effectively increase the rate of cellular renewal and reveal a refreshed, brighter skin tone
5) Cleanse gently
If you have sensitive skin, it’s especially important to use a gentle cleanser. Over-washing your face can irritate or dry out skin, so be sure to choose a soap or cleanser that is formulated for sensitive skin. These products are typically mild and will also help reduce your sensitivity reactions by not aggravating already inflamed skin.
