For people with sensitive skin, randomly picking out skin care products is not a good practice. Expensive or popular brands does not necessarily mean that it will go well with your skin. Throroughly inspecting the product is always the best way to spare sensitive skin from unwanted rashes and breakouts. Here are some skin care tips for sensitive skin.
Be wary of the term “hypoallergenic.” This only means that the product has none of the common allergens including, fragrance, cocoa butter, cornstarch and cotton seed oil. A hypoallergenic product does not ensure that it will not cause allergic reactions to the remaining ingredients of the product. Always check the ingredients list.
Other terms like “fragrance-free” and “unscented” can also be deceiving. These products can contain masking scents that block the or cover the odor of some of the products’ ingredients. Anti-perspirants usually employ this trick.
Some people are really sensitive to any kind of commercial anti-perspirant and deodorant. If this sounds all too familiar to you, try out other options such as talcum powder, baking soda or witch hazel. You can also avoid any form of anti-perspirant and deodorants all together and just opt to wash twice a day with an antibacterial cleanser.
If you find it real hard to shop for skin care products, better approach your dermatologist. He can recommend the basic skin care line that you really need. He can also mix a customized solution for your every day skin care needs.
