How to Protect Your Sensitive Skin

Clothing trends have always been diverse and flexible, while beauty trends have remained balanced as the years went by. However, in the last decade, even beauty trends have started to be more versatile, from delicate eyebrows to rich and wild eyebrows, from natural lip shades to daring lipsticks and so on. While natural beauty may not be as appreciated nowadays as it used to be, there is one thing which will never go out of style: a perfect skin. Everyone dreams about it, but few women are lucky enough to have a perfect skin without putting too much effort into it. If your skin is sensitive, prone to rashes and irritations, which can’t be prevented even with the best beauty products, we have some less than ordinary solutions whose effectiveness will surprise you.

Use an air purifier

You probably know that the more your touch your face, the more you will irritate it. However, it is not your hands which irritate your skin, but the microbes found on them. Those microbes are also found in the indoor air. An air purifier is a great solution for cleaning your indoor air of pollution, excess dust, smoke, pollen, bacteria and viruses. A good air purifier can even filter Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, which are organic compounds born in the combustion of fuel, wood, tobacco or coal. These compounds have a direct effect on your skin, causing aging and skin pigmentation.

Use a humidifier

Sensitive skin requires more hydration than normal skin, and sometimes, not even the best lotion can soothe your skin. Women with sensitive skin suffer a lot in the wintertime, when home heating systems dry the indoor air. However, you can eliminate that uncomfortable dryness feeling by using a room humidifier. These devices are inexpensive and very efficient. You can buy one for all the rooms in your home, or you can buy a small, portable humidifier that you can move from one room to another.

Be careful when buying beauty products

Women with sensitive skin should avoid beauty products which contain alcohol, coloring agents, harsh exfoliates, synthetic fragrances and synthetic conservatives such as parabens. Hypoallergenic products are the best choice for you. Moreover, make sure that the products you buy are suitable for your skin tone.

Don’t skip the toner

A lot of women are under the impression that just because they have sensitive skin, they don’t need to use a toner. However, not all toners contain alcohol and the ones designed for sensitive skin can do wonders for your skin. Natural toners such as milk, rose water or rice water are also great, as long as you store them in the fridge and replace them every couple of days.
