It’s so hot recently! When the temperature was over 30 degrees, my face was sweaty after going out, and my face with makeup was completely invisible. It was a major disaster scene, so I simply gave up…
Some sister papers are too much tossed by the high temperature, crying every day for skin problems. I keep sweating outdoors because of the high temperature, and the friction when wiping dry with a paper towel will damage the stratum corneum of the skin. When entering the room, the skin will experience a high temperature difference. The whole face will not only become red but also peel off.
In fact, many babies have this trouble. If the repair is not done in time, the skin on the face will be dry and peeling. Redness, itching, and acne are normal, so they don’t dare to put on makeup…
If you find that your facial skin is very fragile, there are redness, rashes, red blood streaks, don’t doubt, it is most likely to be sensitive skin.
Many people tend to confuse allergies with allergies. Allergic skin is a symptom of dermatitis, a stress response caused by skin allergies to external substances.
But allergies≠sensitivity. Sensitive skin is a relatively fragile skin condition, which is more prone to various skin problems than normal skin.
There are many factors for sensitive skin:
It may be because of certain systemic diseases that reduce the skin barrier function;
It may be due to aging, which reduces the function of the skin’s sebum membrane and thins the stratum corneum;
Skin care measures are unscientific, causing damage to the skin barrier function;
Long-term extensive use of topical glucocorticoids, certain laser treatments, etc. without medical advice;
Of course, it may also be due to high psychological pressure and poor sleep.
People with sensitive skin will experience symptoms such as skin burning, tingling, tightness, itching, and telangiectasia under the stimulation of cold, heat, alcohol, or drugs. Some people may even develop erythema and pimples on their skin.
Now everyone’s sensitive skin is mostly made by myself. Many people have this kind of experience. My skin used to be pretty good. After applying various skin care, my skin condition has deteriorated from year to year, and finally my skin has become sensitive. It’s like winter frostbite, this year, all kinds of problems will entangle you every year.
What to pay attention to for sensitive skin.
Exfoliating scrubs or cleansing masks need to be used cautiously. The skin is already very sensitive, and the protective barrier is also rubbed off. What is this not for death? Even if you have oily skin, during this period, like dry skin and sensitive skin, use a mild amino acid facial cleanser to cleanse. Don’t use a large soap-based facial cleanser for temporary dryness.
Streamline skin care
Don’t try to use acne-removing medicines (such as acid brushing, acne-removing cream, etc.) just because of acne bursting. This can easily make your skin more fragile! Temporarily put aside all the powerful skin care products on your hand, streamline the skin care steps, reduce the burden on the skin, and let it have time to breathe.
Pay attention to sun protection
It is recommended to use an umbrella or a hat for sun protection. If you want to apply sunscreen, use physical sun protection.
There are two cases to be divided into dry sensitivity (referred to as dry sensitivity) and oil sensitivity (referred to as oil sensitivity). For dry allergies, you can use a moisturizing cream with barrier repair function, petrolatum, polydimethylsiloxane, and ceramide are all classic ingredients for dry allergies. If you use these products, if you have closed mouth or acne, apply a little less, or directly choose the following oil-sensitive treatment methods.
Oily sensitivity is particularly difficult.
There is no problem with sebum secretion, but the stratum corneum is broken, and no amount of sebum can be formed into a film. But because there is no shortage of sebum, the products with dry allergies will be more oily, and some lipid components suitable for dry allergies, such as ceramide and petrolatum, may cause acne craziness or long mouth if you are not careful. Therefore, it is recommended to use hyaluronic acid-based products for oil sensitivity, which can form a water-based film on the skin surface, which can prevent external irritation and repair the damaged barrier at the same time.
In fact, sensitive skin shouldn’t be too scared.
Remember the skin care formula for sensitive skin: do not carelessly skin care, gently cleanse, timely moisturize, pay attention to sunscreen, and precise repair. I believe you and your skin will be in peace.
