How to Take Care of Sensitive Skin

You need to develop a regular regimen of skin care routine for your skin, whatever the skin type is, to ensure that it stays healthy. Knowing how to care for sensitive skin is even more important because such skin can be easily irritated and develop problems.

Your skin is your first line of defense against external factors that can cause harm to your body and affect your health.
To keep this important organ healthy, glowing and free of problems, you need to pay special attention to it, determine your skin type and buy products that suit your skin best, whether it's dry oily, or sensitive. Any damage to your skin can affect your appearance, especially obvious on your face. So, follow a good face care routine.

Regimen for Sensitive Skin Care

For all skins, there are some basic steps you need to follow to keep it healthy:
      Use gentle face masks
Always buy gentle products for sensitive skin.
Cleanse: Use a gentle cleanser or face wash for sensitive skin, liquid formulations that are free of soap and harsh chemicals. Cleanse your face at night to unclog pores which can cause acne and other skin problems. Use warm water to wash your face, always avoid hot water. Try Kaya Skin Clinic Sensitive Face Cleanser, specially formulated by dermatologists for sensitive skin. It is free of soap or fragrance, cleanses effectively but gently, and does not dry your skin.
Moisturize: As soon as you have cleansed your face, pat it dry with a soft towel. Then, while there is still some dampness in your skin, apply a soothing moisturizer. Choose a good, creamy moisturiser.
Exfoliation: For sensitive skins, limit using scrubs to once a week or even once a month. Frequent exfoliation can aggravate your skin issues. Use gentle scrubs and avoid abrasive products.
Face Mask: Choose a gentle face mask that will nourish your skin with essential nutrients. This can help improve your skin’s health, reducing the occurrence of skin irritation, itching etc.
Sunscreens: Protection against the harsh skin damaging rays of the sun becomes even more important if you have sensitive skin. UV rays can cause sun damage, collagen breakdown etc., which will make your skin more sensitive. Choose the best sunscreen for sensitive skin - light fragrance free gentle formulations, like Kaya Sunscreen for Sensitive Skin SPF 15. This is a lightweight broad spectrum sunscreen, free of perfumes and spreads easily over your skin.

Sensitive Skin Care Tips

When taking care of your sensitive skin, you need to be careful in the routines you follow as well as the products you choose:
      Choose your skin care products with care, avoid harsh ingredients, and stay away from perfumed products
      Once you have found a cleanser, moisturizer or other products that work well on your skin and does not irritate it, stick to that product
      Maybe you can find other sensitive skin care essentials from the same brand. If so, try them and if they suit you, don't change. Frequently switching skin care products can actually aggravate your issues
      Keep your routine simple. Perhaps gentle cleansing followed by a moisturiser, weekly or monthly use of gentle scrubs and face masks
      Do not wash your face frequently if you have sensitive skin. Washing strips the skin of moisture and this can further irritate your skin even if you use a soothing moisturizer immediately after washing
      Study the ingredients list in any product you buy for sensitive skin. See if it includes anything you are allergic to
      If a skin care products sting or burn when they come into contact with your skin, avoid them. Sensitive skin is even more vulnerable than other skin types to these kind of products
      Occasionally, you can indulge in a gentle facial for sensitive skin that softly cleanses, soothes and nourishes your face and leaves it glowing with health
Sensitive skin is very delicate and it is also usually dry, so it needs hydration and soothing creams more than scrubbing and astringents. Design a good skincare routine that suits you and select the products you use with care. Keep the regimen simple and stick to it, to avoid problems and to gradually improve the health of your skin.
