Sensitive Skin Triggers: How to Avoid Flare-Ups
Millions of men and women complain of having sensitive skin. It's estimated that 69% of women and 64% of men have a variety of symptoms associated with sensitive skin. The best home care to minimize symptoms is to use non-irritating hypoallergenic sensitive skin care products.
It's generally believed by dermatologists that people with skin conditions, have nerve endings on the outer layer of the skin (stratum corneum) that tend to over-react to certain triggers. These triggers can cause flare-ups that mostly affect your skin with itching, burning, redness and rashes. Over exposure to the sun without protection, wind, cold, pollution and stress are a few of the factors that may cause flare-ups.
Another very important trigger can be the every day products you use for skin care or cosmetics. Many of these products contain irritating and harsh ingredients that can result in inflammation and symptoms. We all have personal skin care goals, and they are usually based on our specific needs. That's why Cleure created a complete line of fragrance-free skin care products,
sensitive skin cleansers, toners and moisturizers just for you, whether you have oily, dry or combination skin type.
With regular healthy lifestyle habits, and the right gentle, hypoallergenic sensitive skin care products, annoying skin conditions can be minimized or even be a thing of your past. Your daily skin care for sensitive skin routine is a very important step towards healthy skin.
Make sure to use mild hypoallergenic skin care products that are free of parabens, fragrance and plants, such as essential oils or plant extracts. So-called "natural" ingredients with plants can be harsh and cause side effects. It's important to protect your skin from sun and other environmental conditions. Everyone has daily stress, but balancing stress with relaxation, is crucial to overall health. Last but not least, take good care of your skin with daily cleansing and moisturizing with hypoallergenic products. You'll soon see a beautiful complexion that is radiant with a healthy glow.
A simple self-patch test before you use a new product, can help you save time and money. Here are the steps:
Another option is to take the product to your dermatologist for professional patch-test.
- Apply a small amount of the product to the inside of your wrist.
- Cover with bandage.
- Wait 24-36 hours, if there is no reaction on your skin, you're fine with that product.
