3 Ways To Help Treat Sensitive Skin
Soothe Your Sensitive Skin
Your skin works 24-7, and it's not a job people always think about. Whether we're talking about exposure to environmental conditions or the stresses that life puts on us, sometimes we need to remember that skin works hard every day. It's exposed to external conditions like cleaning products, cosmetics, and possibly even the ingredients in your food. Stressed skin gets rashes and wrinkles, while properly balanced skin glows with vibrancy and radiance. Add more balance and support to your sensitive skin with these sensitive skin tips and ingredients.
1. UNDERSTAND YOUR SKIN SENSITIVITY
Foods, lifestyle, and skin care products can add balance or stress to your skin which is often a reflection of what’s going on inside as well as on the body surface.
Take a few moments to become aware and more mindful of your skin and what could be an underlying cause of your reddened, raw, itchy flares. Food or allergy testing may be beneficial to discover if a simple elimination or addition to your diet or lifestyle could help. Stress and all that comes with it can be a major contributor to sensitive skin and similar conditions and needs to be addressed as well.
Finding the best treatment for sensitive or problematic skin is to first figure out the root cause. All the lotions and creams in the world won't be able to properly or (long term) treat sensitive skin if they aren't able to address the underlying cause as to the imbalance in your sensitive skin. Assessing and testing the potential causes is crucial; one being as simple as improper use of a product. If you think your sensitive or problematic skin may be something you're doing, read on; are you doing too much to harm your skin?
2. TAKE PROACTIVE STEPS TO MANAGE YOUR SENSITIVE SKIN
Adjust your diet if needed eliminating certain foods that may cause allergies such as nightshades or spicy foods. Adding support for proper gut health with pro-biotics or herbs like Dandelion or Burdock root can help reduce flare-ups as well. Eliminating alcohol or supporting liver health can be a key component with sensitive skin.
Make sure you are using natural products made with quality organic ingredients. Just as choosing the best ingredients for your food consumption, treat your sensitive skin to the most nutritious daily routine with a Calming Cream Cleanser, Soothing Mask, and Redness Control Serum. In order to balance your skin naturally, it is hugely important to understand the power of herbs and natural ingredients. Our Cutisyn Body Ceutics Repairing Body Lotion and Butter is a perfect example of an ensemble that works as hard as your skin to make you look and feel your very best. Your angry skin will thank you for the cooling, soothing and calming botanicals.
