Sensitive Skin Care Routine

Your skin is the most visible part of your body. Healthy skin is often seen as a sign of overall good health, as illness can reflect how your complexion feels and appears. Additionally, skin that is well cared for has many benefits, such as preventing sensitive skin problems and premature aging. Healthy skin gives you confidence as well as a lifetime of youthful, radiant beauty. Beauty is truly skin deep and for this reason and more, it's important for you to understand how to care for your skin. Sensitive skin requires special care, since it's easily irritated. This article will help you have healthy, beautiful skin beyond what is clearly visible.

What Your Skin is Made Of

Although most don't often consider it as such, the skin is considered an organ. On average, it weighs approximately eight pounds and covers 22 square feet. Human skin constantly grows new cells and sheds old ones. In fact, once every 28 to 35 days, the skin renews itself, which means the skin replaces itself approximately 10 times a year.

Your skin consists of three layers that include:

  • Epidermis or the outer layer of the skin. This layer contains a protein called keratin, and another substance that produces melanin, which give you the color of your skin. This layer also helps retain moisture (source: WebMD).
  • The middle layer is the dermis which includes two components to help prevent wrinkles. These two substances are elastin and collagen.
  • The inner most layer is called subcutaneous layer, which is mostly made of fat cells and collagen. This layer helps protect your internal organs from harm.

Learning about your skin is important towards choosing the most beneficial products for you. Also essential, is how to put together your daily skin care routine. Based on your skin type, finding the best products will result in radiant, healthy skin, helping to prevent sensitive skin reactions. 

Basics You Need for Daily Sensitive Skin Care Routine

The epidermis, or outermost layer of your skin, is most easily damaged due to the environment, poor skin care, and harsh skin products you may be using. Healthy skin must be cleansed properly, moisturized and protected from environmental elements that cause damage. There are certain essentials you'll need follow for your sensitive skin in order to see healthy visible results. The following are needed for all skin types. You can customize your routine by checking the table below for what products you need to add to your routine, based on your skin type.

  • Cleanser - Clean skin means healthy skin. No matter your skin type, you need to keep your skin clean.

  • Sun Protection - Sunscreen with SPF of 15 to 30 with zinc oxide must be part of your daily routine, when exposed to the sun.
