Ohh sensitive skin, we feel you! Here at HQ we get loads of questions about this skin type so we thought it might be time to share some tips and solutions to treat sensitive skin for the best and most glowing outcome.
Sensitive skin can be easily irritated by pretty much anything including the elements, pollution, hormones, lack of sleep and products. Those with sensitive skin tend to be more reactive to soaps, detergents, dyes and fragrances which can result in uncomfortable itchiness, dryness and reddening. At Wildcraft, we design all of our products with sensitive skin in mind and are careful and conscious of every ingredient we introduce, especially when it comes to essential oils. While they are loaded with benefits that can help soothe and balance the skin, they are also super powerful so we take care to use low dilutions to avoid any harmful exposure.
Read on to learn what we recommend but keep in mind that all skin is different and products can work differently on different people. It is therefore best to consult a dermatologist or doctor if you are experiencing a skin condition such as rosacea, eczema or dermatitis.
Top Tips for sensitive skin
Don’t overdo it.
If you are transitioning to a new routine or trying new products, slowly introduce each one. Don’t put all of your products on at once as your skin will probably react to all of the new ingredients.
Sensitive skin calls for a simple routine. Less is more. While it may be tempting to layer on every possible product in hopes of finding an easy solution, you’d be doing more harm than good.
Do your research.
Read labels, consult websites and ask friends. Knowledge is power and the more you know, the more you’ll be able to understand what ingredients may or may not work for you. If you’re still unsure, it’s always a good idea to do an allergy test when trying a product for the first time. Simply apply a small amount to your forearm and wait 24 hours. If any irritation occurs, you’ll know it’s a no-go.
Don’t invest in full size until you know it’s the right product for you. Samples are a great way to test a variety of products (but remember, one at a time) without spending an excess amount of money. You can even build and try a whole sample routine before committing to the real deal.
