Skincare for very sensitive skin. Does such skincare exists?
Some of my friends wonder if they will ever grow out of their sensitive skin which can easily become red, itchy or swollen. Their skincare choices are often limited to paraben-free and fragrance-free products from the pharmacies. Of course it is good to use non-chemical products but these products often only have simple cleansers and moisturizers. Few choices for anti-sensitive serums, ampoules or essences which helps us with how to calm sensitive skin with anti-aging properties. Their next question is should I use streroid for eczema?
Why skin becomes sensitive?
Before we go on to suggest skincare which help treat sensitive skin and how to achieve healthy balanced skin, let’s take a look why some skin reacts to external stimuli. These external stimuli includes pollutants, heat from the sun, perspiration, harsh chemicals and even touch. Skin becomes sensitive when the nerves at the dermal layer is exposed and hence reacts with redness or itchiness. The nerves are generally reactive mostly because the skin is thinner than it should be due to dehydration (though ironically your oily skin is likely to be dehydrated) or injury from aggressive treatment including laser or chemical peel.
What skincare routine will help with sensitive skin?
Guinot Hydra Sensitive Cleanser contains chamomile, corn extract and centella which are all deemed as skincare rockstar to help cleanse the face without dehydrating the skin surface area.
When paired with Guinot Hydra Sensitive Serum, the active ingredients of chamomile, corn extract and centella penetrates deeper into the epidermal layer to help desensitize the skin. With prolonged use, the skin will be less prone to redness and itchiness.
To complete the skincare routine, on top of the hydra sensitive serum, gently apply hydra sensitive serum which also has chamomile, centella and Vitamin E to help protect the skin from external stimuli and further strengthen the skin own defences. With prolonged use of these skincare, skin water and oil content get restored to balance and become less reactive.
