Skincare solutions for sensitive skin
Sensitive skin can be extremely frustrating at times, there’s no doubt about it. Breakouts, flare-ups, redness and itching are all part of the package when it comes to sensitive skin, but symptoms like these can be reduced with sensitive skincare treatments. In this week’s blog, we’ll be showing you how best to look after your sensitive skin – sharing our top tips, expert products, and popular treatments.
Be gentle with your skin
Whatever your skin type, it’s important that you have a good daily skincare regime. However, with sensitive skin, it’s essential that you don’t go overboard with treatments and potions. Use simple, gentle products and don’t over exfoliate or over cleanse skin. This will only cause irritation. It’s also important to remember to pat skin dry after washing – rather than rubbing it on a towel – and using lukewarm water for washing as opposed to steaming hot.
Wear a good quality SPF moisturiser
If you’ve got sensitive skin, it’s important to protect it from the harsh, environmental factors you’re subjected to day-to-day. When you have sensitive skin, your skin tends to be a little more delicate when it comes to heat, sun and pollution. This puts you at risk of sunburn, rashes and irritation.
At AP Skincare, we offer a fantastic selection of clinical-grade skincare products. In fact, our specialised products are even better than those moisturisers and serums you’ll find on the high street. Our Prescribed Solutions products provide that barrier your skin needs to fight against daily attack. The Heliocare range is also well suited to sensitive skin, with SPF 50 protection and antioxidants to minimise environment damage.
Maintain a healthy diet
A bad diet can play havoc with your skin. Poor dietary habits include the consumption of too much sugar, too much fat, too little fat and too few calories. Any one of these habits can lead to out-of-control skin that fails to look its best. Switching to a healthy, balanced diet and ensuring you get eight glasses of water a day will help you skin remain nourished and hydrated.
Speak to a skincare expert
If your sensitive skin is really getting you down, why not speak to an expert? At AP Skincare, our specialists can help diagnose the best treatments and products for your skin type. During your consultation, we’ll carry out a skin type analysis. This will help us identify the best skincare solutions for you.
