What is sensitive skin?
It is important to be familiar with what sensitive skin is and what it requires. Intensive protection against all kinds of external aggressors and a gentle beauty regimen are essential since sensitive skin often has a diminished natural protective barrier and can be prone to impurities, redness and irritation. Hot indoors as a result of heaters, the wind and the cold during winter and the changeover to spring can take a toll on sensitive skin. Thus, this skin type requires gentle support and intensive care during this time in particular. Sensitive skin may become unbalanced and irritations may be triggered as a result of using cleansers that are too aggressive, specific ingredients or even fragrances. The sun, heat and stress are also factors that should be considered when finding proper skincare products for sensitive skin types.
Mild cleansers and intensive-care moisturisers
The foundation of any good skincare regimen starts with cleansing. Sensitive skin types require gentle cleansing formulas with mild ingredients. The Sensitive Face Care Soap is ideal since it has the same pH level as the skin which balances it without disrupting the protective function. At the same time, it is vital to cleanse the skin with lukewarm water. Water that is too warm or too cold may cause irritation. Furthermore, it is important to avoid facial scrubs and peels. Once the skin is cleansed, gently pat it dry with a clean towel and be sure not to rub the skin whilst drying it.
Subsequent skincare products should be mild yet offer intensive care to help strengthen the protective barrier of the skin - preferably products with mild ingredients that possess soothing properties that support the skin. The rule of thumb: less is more! Fewer ingredients mean that the skin is less susceptible to potential irritants. HEJ ORGANIC offers an unbeatable skincare duo with their Sensitive Oil Serum and Sensitive 24H Cream. The serum can be used as a standalone product that is applied to the skin before moisturiser. Alternatively, the serum can be mixed with the cream to provide hydration and an enhanced glow. The cream provides the skin with intensive moisture in the morning and in the evening whilst soothing the complexion. The full product line is enriched with hemp oil and soothing extracts, such as chamomile and oats, that protect the skin.
With gentle skincare products, diligence and a balanced lifestyle even the most sensitive of skin can find its natural glow.
