Dry, irritated, and red skin can result from a poor beauty routine. We might also be unaware that we are causing damage to our skin by using high-end cosmetics. That's because the right treatment is more important than the price of skincare.
We at Bright Side understand how important it is for women to have perfect skin without the use of makeup, so we've compiled a list of 10 expert tips that may be of assistance.
1. Instead of a lotion, use an ointment or cream.
There's a distinction to be made between creams and lotions. Creams are best for dry and sensitive skin because they have a thicker barrier to keep the skin hydrated. Lotion absorbs easily into the skin and is ideal for normal skin. It's also ideal for use in the summer.
2. Keep your bath or shower to a maximum of 10 minutes.
Bath and shower times should be kept to a maximum of 5 to 10 minutes. According to dermatologists, there is sufficient time to cleanse and hydrate the skin. Overdoing it can have unfavorable effects. The natural oils that keep your skin safe are washed away when you overwash and overcleanse. The pores open, allowing water to escape the body. The discomfort and redness can then occur.
Also, though hot, warm, and cold showers both have advantages, if you're not sure which is best for your skin, opt for lukewarm water.
3. Avoid using skincare products that are labeled as "unscented."
Using fragrance-free lotions, soaps, and detergents if your skin has become irritated and responsive. They cause less allergic reactions and cause less discomfort. Be cautious of items with the word "unscented" on the bottle. It's possible that they contain chemicals that irritate your skin.
4. Shut the door to the bathroom.
We can sometimes leave the bathroom door open when showering to let more air in. Dermatologists warn against this practice. Keep the bathroom door closed. This maintains the necessary humidity in the room, preventing your skin from being too dry.
5. Apply moisturizer as soon as you get out of the shower or wash your face.
When your skin is wet, the best time to apply moisturizer is. It seals in hydration and avoids discomfort in this situation. When drying your face, avoid using a towel and instead add cream right away.
6. Exfoliate your skin, but don't use scrubs.
If your skin is sensitive, harsh exfoliation will irritate it, resulting in redness and irritation. Scrubs and mechanical procedures are not recommended by dermatologists. Mild chemical exfoliators are preferable.
Use a moisturizer directly after exfoliation if your skin feels dry.
7. Look for products that contain special calming ingredients.
According to dermatologists, products containing sulfur, chamomile, licorice, niacinamide, allantoin, caffeine, root, cucumber, and aloe and may help minimize redness.
Cleaning materials that are organic are often recommended by experts. It's important not to overuse items, and wearing a mask too much can result in "maskne," or acne caused by the mask trapping dirt in the pores.
8. Begin to simplify your beauty routine.
If you're sure you don't have any skin issues but your face is still irritated and swollen, it's time to cut back on your cosmetics, particularly makeup, because one of them may be causing an allergic reaction. In a few days, you should try reintroducing goods one by one.
This approach will assist you in determining which substance or ingredient is hazardous to you, allowing you to avoid purchasing another cream containing the same ingredient.
9. Make sure you're wearing the right kind of sunscreen.
Some people are allergic to sunscreen and are completely unaware of their condition. As a result of the chemical additives, your skin becomes flaky and red.
If you have sensitive skin, use a sunscreen that contains titanium dioxide or zinc.
10. Give yourself a break from your beauty treatment.
When trying to solve a problem, you can buy and use increasingly complicated items, but sometimes simplicity is better. According to dermatologists, your body deserves a break from your makeup routine as well. Perform a skin quick every now and then. It's particularly beneficial for people with thin, sensitive skin.
