For all those with dry, irritated and sensitive skin, here’s how to save your skin from a freak out. 

When your skin is sensitive, using the wrong product can wreck havoc (read: very unwanted redness) on your skin. It may also lead to irritations such as itchiness.

If you experience itchiness, redness or skin irritation after applying products, it is very likely that you are dealing with a sensitive complexion.

Be careful about using all the DIY facials that you see on Pinterest. Always do a spot-test on your forearm before applying the products on your face. Although you may purchase a product from the organic section, organic and natural are not necessarily regulated for skincare. What looks good enough to eat, may not work so well on your sensitive skin.

If you suffer from sensitive skin, you should also avoid products that smell really good. Unfortunately. Products with perfumes, dyes and harsh chemicals will cause irritation on your skin. Use milder products that can stop your face from getting irritated. Harsh products can strip away essential oils and leave you with dry, flaky skin.

Wash away make-up with gentle cleanser such as Bioderma’s Sensibio H2O or The Sloane Clinic’s Lavender Calamine Clarifying Water. These products are really mild and calming, while bring very effective in removing all your make up residue. 

Most importantly, do not forget your sunscreen. Sunscreen is a must for everyone, but especially those with sensitive skin as your skin tends to turn red more easily. If you get sunburnt, make sure to stay out of the sun for while 

Cleanse your skin with a gentle moisturizing face wash and follow this with a soothing moisturizer to calm the skin.
