How to Handle Sensitive Skin

 

There are many ways that we harm our skin without even realizing how much damage we’re causing. And it’s even worse when we have sensitive skin, so it’s important to stay vigilant about protecting our outer layer…

 

    • Sunblock helps prevent UV damage, burning, dark spots and wrinkles. Choose a high-quality sunblock for sensitive skin and keep a small tube with you to reapply throughout the day. Try to stay in the shade or cover up with lightweight cotton clothes that cover your arms and legs along with a stylish sun hat. Our Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare Recapture 360 is a perfect way to start your day – it includes protection from UVA, UVB, and Infrared Rays!

 

    • Exposing your skin to harsh wind and cold can wreak havoc. So when possible, protect yourself by staying out of the harsh elements, or covering up when it’s windy or cold.

 

    • Hot water can cause our skin to dry out. Wash up using cooler water and beware of facial scrubs that are not made specifically for sensitive skin.

    • Most soaps contain ingredients that can break down the skin’s natural lipids and dry out the skin, so try hypoallergenic soaps and lotions.

 

    • Avoid scrubbing too hard. Loofah’s and body scrubs can do more damage than we realize, so treat your skin gingerly.

 

    • Here’s another reason to keep cool – stressing out also causes skin irritation! So try to keep things in perspective and let the little things go.

 

    • Allergies from both food and our surroundings are another culprit of skin agitation.

 

    • Overly dry skin could also be due to hard water, so investing in water softeners could bring some welcome relief.

 

    • Consider changing to sensitive skin clothing detergents and fabric softeners.

 

    • Our outside is also affected by our insidedehydration can cause damage to our organs as well as our skin, so make sure to drink lots of water throughout the day.
