Winter Skin Tips For Dry and Sensitive Skin
1. It is crucial to limit the use of products with fragrances, dyes, or preservatives.
2. It is recommended to wash your face with lukewarm water. Hot water can cause further irritation for sensitive skin.
3. Use a moisturizer that suits your skin type. For example, using a thicker moisturizer if you have oily skin will only clog your pores. Look for oil-free options.
4. Protect your skin from the sun. Pick a sunscreen specifically formulated for sensitive skin that is fragrance free and has no dyes.
5. Don’t use too many skincare products at once. Doing so can disrupt your skin’s acid mantle layer and cause breakouts.
6. Don’t over-wash or over exfoliate. You can end up irritating your skin and drying it out. Frequent cleansing dries out your skin and causes flaky, rough skin. Your skin can also start producing more oil to overcompensate for the dryness.
7. Don’t touch your face. Sensitive skin is highly reactive to chemicals found in many products. Your hands may also be home to bacteria that can further irritate the skin.
