Sensitive skin is a common condition that can be caused by various factors including genetics and environment. Here are 6 tips to calm and soothe sensitive skin. Our ProBLUEMD sensitive skin regimen works to restore and refresh without causing irritation.
Test Your Products
This is one of the best ways to find out what works for your skin without overcommitting! When trying a new product, test a small amount on your skin and wait 48 hours to see any reaction.
Cleanse Without Over Drying
Harsh ingredients in facial cleansers can strip natural oils, resulting in tight, red or bumpy skin. It’s important to keep your face clean, but there’s no need to overdo it. Instead, start your day with a gentle, soap-free wash to clean and soften without irritation or dehydration. Our Ultra Gentle Cleanser is formulated with a blend of vitamins to nourish skin and protect against free radicals.
Hydrate Morning & Night
Dry skin can happen to anyone! Harsh products such as exfoliators and anti-aging products can remove natural moisture. When this happens, fine lines around the eyes and flaky skin tend to make an appearance. After your morning facial cleanse, layering on a moisturizer can help protect against water loss and environmental factors such as air pollution and climate. Reduce the look of fine lines, pore size and inflammation with our Triple Antioxidant Cream. This advanced formula is hydrating, but light enough to wear underneath makeup. For a rich cream to wear at night, try our ceramide-enriched Nourishing Complex that promotes firmness and elasticity.
Protect From Sunlight
We know you’ve heard it before, but never leave the house without sunscreen! Even when the weather cools down, harmful rays can wreak havoc on your skin. Especially when irritated, sun exposure can increase sensitivity which may cause redness or inflammation. Cover up with SPF 30 or higher year round to protect delicate tissue from harsh sunlight rays. Our new oil-free, lightweight Pure Protection Sunscreen is packed with antioxidants and provides broad spectrum UVA/UVB coverage.
From the Inside
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle makes a big difference, regardless of your skin type! Because some foods may cause negative reactions on your skin, start to analyze and avoid what isn’t working well for your body. Common allergens include sugar, alcohol, dairy or gluten.
Restore & Firm
Wrinkles, eye circles, redness and rough patches caused by sensitive skin can leave the face looking dull or weathered. Rejuvenate your youthful glow with products that soothe, hydrate and tighten. When it comes to the area around the eye, we recommend our Vitamin C Serum that uses the power of hyaluronic acid to bring hydration and plumpness to this delicate tissue. For fine lines and wrinkles, collagen production and damage protection are essential. Combine our Facial Firming Complex with Pro Collagen Restore to encourage new collagen synthesis and enrich your skin with antioxidants.
