Dealing with Sensitive Skin

If you have sensitive skin, I'm sure you've experienced the irritating inevitability of a blemish breakout. No matter how strict your skin regimen, how dedicated your routine, how often you wash your face, how many products you use, you always seem to have that one blemish creep onto your face that seems to set off a chain reaction. Dealing with blemishes is an extremely frustrating business, and one that is hard to perfectly deal with. Here are a few techniques you can employ to mitigate the effects of having sensitive skin, and perhaps you'll decrease your chances of a breakout even more!

If you have sensitive skin, you need to care for your skin with light and sensitive products. Using heavy or oily products won't produce the results you want; on the contrary, using products that are too heavy for your skin can produce breakouts more often (and of greater severity) than what you have to deal with now. Choose light formulas (products geared toward sensitive skin are always good for you to try), and make sure you make a routine out of your skin care products.

Wash your face at least two times a day. In the summertime, I've noticed I sometimes need to wipe down my face in the late afternoon because the heat makes me sweat more and my face gets oilier more often. If you find yourself in the same predicament, then don't hesitate to wet a washcloth and wipe the oils off your face. If you keep up on your skincare routine, then your sensitive skin will have much less room to cause problems.

One thing you'll want to watch out for regarding your sensitive skin is making sure your skin doesn't dry out. With products geared toward sensitive skin, you often encounter products aimed at drying the oils on your face; if used in excess, these products will make the skin on your face really dry, and that situation is just as bad as a breakout. You might need to go through a trial-and-error kind of process to really figure out what routine works best for you.

The toner I use for my skin care is particularly drying, and so I don't use it often, and only on parts of my face that are oilier or on parts threatening to break out. As you figure out what your face needs regarding skin care, you'll get to know your skin and know its warning signs and fluctuating needs. You'll want to apply this knowledge to your routine so you can adapt your care to suit the immediate needs of your skin. Remember: If your skin problems persist, even with a strict skin care routine, you will want to see a dermatologist.

Having sensitive skin, while bothersome, doesn't have to be a constant problem. If you can find and use the right products and exercise a regular and quality skin care regimen, then your skin will become healthy, and you won't have to be constantly worrying about a breakout.
