Summer is a time for enjoying the outdoors and holidaying in the sun with loved ones, but for those who have sensitive skin, summer can be a difficult season. It’s hard to enjoy the heat and sun if it can be damaging, so it’s extremely important that you know how to take care of and look after your skin.
Here are some summer tips to help your sensitive skin.
Importance of Exfoliation
You could be cleansing, moisturising, and applying sunscreen – but if you’re not exfoliating, your skin isn’t as healthy as it could be. Exfoliation removes the dead skin cells on the skins surface, and when dead skin cells start to build up on the surface of the skin, it can leave the skin looking dull, rough, and dry. The build-up of dead skin cells can also result in excess oil and clogged pores, leading to blemishes and acne, causing sensitive skin.
The Obagi Exfoderm is a skin smoothing lotion for dry, thin, or sensitive skin. The phytic acid formulation exfoliates dead surface skin cells, creating a healthy glowing complexion and aiding product absorption.
Interval Face Washing
Washing your face at intervals removes dirt, grime, and most importantly the sweat from your face. This is one of the main ways to take care of sensitive skin in summer. The Skinceuticals Redness Neutralizer is a fantastic product for very sensitive skin types. This lightweight gel cream is formulated to hydrate the skin and reinforce barrier function to reduce the appearance of redness.
Applied twice a day, this product regulates pro-inflammatory mediators, reducing the skins temperature, while bisabolol and shea butter further sooth the skin.
Protect Yourself From The Sun
The sun can cause a lot of damage to the skin, especially if you have sensitive skin. Sunscreen is one of the keys to radiant skin, and by reducing sun exposure, it lowers the chance of causing any damage. Using a high sunscreen helps protect yourself during the summer season. Obagi Matte Sun Shield is a product for high protection. At SPF 50, this seriously high protection sunscreen combines high UVB absorption and dynamic UVA blockage.
Being fragrance free and for all skin types, this is ideal for those with sensitive skin.
Keep Your Skin Care Products Cold
This is a great tip, especially during the summer time when it’s hot outdoors. The increase of blood flow can increase heat and sensitivity in the skin. By keeping skin care products cold in areas such as the refrigerator, the cool temperature of cleansing, toning and moisturising products will constrict the capillaries to ease redness and irritation.
