3 Tips for Cleansing Your Sensitive Facial Skin
Posted on November 29 2018
Sensitive facial skin can be irritated at any time and for just about any reason. Cold winter winds dry you out, too much pollution in the air irritates your skin, and even the simple act of cleansing your face can be a nightmare. While little can be done about the weather or air quality on a given day, how you cleanse the sensitive skin on your face is something you can control. Here are a few tips to help calm you while you cleanse.
Use Lukewarm Water
It may seem counter-intuitive, but when you have sensitive skin, splashing hot water on your face isn’t always the best idea. Hot water tends to dry out your skin, and when it’s already sensitive, the effects are that much worse. Also, when you’re done cleansing, pat your face dry instead of rubbing it.
Mind Your Exfoliants
Exfoliating your skin is important, and when you have sensitive skin you need to take extra care to use one that doesn’t do more harm than good. Manual exfoliants, such as creams or cleansers, that contain tiny bits of material that don’t dissolve in water are a no-go for sensitive skin. The exfoliant materials in these products tend to have jagged edges that can create tiny tears in your skin. These tears lead to inflammation, and inflammation leads to redness. Instead, use a gentle exfoliant that can serve the same purpose without damaging your skin.
Keep it Simple
