26 Nov Take the Struggle Out of Sensitivity
Is your struggle with sensitive skin getting the better of you? Don’t suffer in silence anymore.
Dealing with sensitivity in the skin can seem like a never-ending battle. Often you can be left feeling over whelmed, confused, over thinking the options and given the run around with different advice. Often there is misleading information when all you want is some relief! It can feel like trial and error as you can go around in circles hoping you find a miracle cure. It can cost a lot of time and money trying to calm and soothe your skin.
Sensitive skin is by far the hardest to manage. Not only is sensitive skin irritated, red and uncomfortable, it can often be oily, causing even more irritation and discomfort. Sensitive skin is not always what we assume. Experiencing stinging, itching, burning or redness can be a reaction to using something different on your skin and does not necessarily mean you have sensitive skin. The true characteristics of sensitive skin reactions is pustules, skin bumps, skin erosion, extremely dry skin, redness and irritation or a tendency toward a flushed look. The good news is that we can help calm and soothe the skin, reduce redness and help your skin radiate its lovely, healthy glow.

What else can you do to help your skins sensitivity?
Stay hydrated. the skin is the last organ of the body to receive water when you drink, so always have a few extra glasses. Remember to use a moisturiser that provides lasting hydration all day and keep your skin care routine regular.
Wear sunscreen. A sunscreen in your moisturiser is a good way to get protection without complicating your daily routine and risking aggrevating the sensitivity.
