For sensitive skin, it is recommended to choose a mild facial cleanser that does not contain soap and fragrance for daily cleaning and care. Please bear in mind, do not over-cleanse, as this will irritate the skin and cause dryness. It is enough to wash your face once in the morning and once at night.
Focusing on moisturizing improves skin hydration, reduce irritation, and helps skin stratum corneum repair. It is recommended to choose skin care products that are specially formulated for sensitive skin and do not contain unnecessary (potentially irritating) ingredients such as colouring and fragrances.
Áll-Time Sun Protection
Facial sun protection is helpful for sensitive skin. Ultraviolet radiation can affect the overall health of the skin (even if you are indoors) and using moisturizers with SPF sun protection can reduce this risk. When you are out and exposed to the sun, it is best to use special sunscreen products (not just moisturizers with SPF sunscreen), and use hats and sunglasses for UV protection.
Avoid Harsh Exfoliation
Regular exfoliation not only helps to deep clean the skin, remove impurities and pollutants from the skin, but also promotes skin regeneration. However, not all facial exfoliating products are the same. When choosing exfoliating products, be sure to choose a formula designed specifically for sensitive skin. Those fancy face wash tools or pore cleansing masks containing scrub particles may be attractive to you, but these products may cause severe skin irritation, and it is best to avoid using them.
