Do you have hypersensitive skin? Here’s how to care for it
We all know that skin type varies from person to person. But just like dry, oily, or combination skin, there is a different spectrum when it comes to sensitivity. To simply put it- when your normal to sensitive skin ‘over’ reacts to certain ingredients, it can be considered ultra-sensitive or hyper-reactive skin. So, let’s understand what triggers hypersensitive skin and how to care for it.
What is hyper-reactive skin?
Hyper-reactive skin is more prone to irritation and can result from damage to the skin's protective barrier or an overreaction to certain ingredients. That's why it's even more important to choose mild products that help care for skin‘s protective layer and help avoid irritation.
How do I care for my hyper-reactive skin?
Give the right care to hyper-reactive and ultra sensitive skin by using gentle cleansers that help lock in moisture and help protect the natural skin barrier for visibly healthier skin. Gentle and good-for-you body cleansers can also help nourish and protect the skin barrier by giving it that extra moisture boost- all day long. For hyper-reactive skin, it is essential to follow a consistent body care routine by using products that are soothing and hydrating. Using products that contain fewer ingredients helps to avoid any ingredients that may be too harsh or could be likely to cause an reaction. Try switching to a fragrance-free body wash and look for skin barrier-supporting ingredients like stearic acid. Remember: a healthy skin barrier means a happy you.
