Taking care of your skin is important, which is why both Mediceuticals® and Bao-Med® developed several skincare products. These products are suitable for all skin types, particularly for dry and sensitive skin.
Skin care: for a radiant complexion
Do you have dry or sensitive skin? You’re not alone. Our skin has to endure a lot every day, from make-up to cleansing products to harmful outside influences. The more sensitive your skin, the more reactive it will be.
This could lead to:
- Tightness and burning sensation
- Chapped and flaking skin
- Rashes, bumps, and inflammation
These uncomfortable symptoms only tend to get worse over time. That’s why it’s important to take good care of your skin. Radiant skin starts with a good skincare regimen that includes natural and skin-friendly products such as oils, creams, body wash, and soap.
What causes sensitive skin?
Our skin has to endure a lot every day, which can make it hard to pinpoint the exact cause of skin sensitivity. You may be allergic or sensitive to an ingredient in your make-up or skincare product. It could be caused by a food intolerance or not drinking enough water.
Sensitive skin can also be caused by stress or hormonal changes, such as the menopause and pregnancy. Exposure to extreme temperatures, sunlight, and air pollution can also cause skin sensitivity.
Wearing too much make-up and using harsh skincare products are other common culprits. More is not always better, especially if you’re not focusing on the ingredients in your products. The key to good skin care is choosing high-quality products with natural ingredients.
Good skin care: the solution for sensitive skin
A good skincare routine is the best solution for sensitive skin. This means using a few basic products with natural ingredients and nothing else. Examples include:
A nourishing oil hydrates the skin without making it feel greasy. Oil absorbs quickly and helps sooth dry, red, and chapped skin. The advantage of an oil is that you can mix it with a cream, a body wash, or a conditioner, which makes it a highly versatile product.
A hydrating cream is supremely soothing for dry, irritated skin. It’s easy to apply and keeps the skin soft and moisturized for a long time. You can use a hydrating cream with natural ingredients on your face, body, and hands, which makes it a wonderfully versatile full-body product.
Gentle body wash
Sensitive skin can use some extra support in the shower or bath. Body wash is the perfect product. It cleanses and nourishes the skin, making it feel silky soft.
Hydrating soap is an excellent alternative to body wash. Use it in the shower or bath to cleanse and nourish your skin, leaving it feel fresh and moisturized.
Sensitive scalp shampoo doubles as an excellent body wash. An advantage of shampoo versus a separate body wash is that you use fewer products, which is always recommended for people with dry, sensitive skin. Bonus: if you plan on travelling, you only have to take one product with you.
In addition to using natural products, it’s also important to eat a healthy, balanced diet, to drink enough water, to take warm (not hot) showers, and to use sunscreen.
