I’m sure you’ve already noticed, but right now is a tough time of year for skin—the shift from harsh summer sun exposure to harsh cold winds and dry air can leave your skin parched, irritated, and the opposite of glowy. Wondering how to update your skin care routine and face winter looking pretty? Pure and Gentle sensitive skin products in combination with our expert tips are your answer.
With cooler weather, you might notice your skin has small red blotches or you have a red flush on your cheeks – and you’re not blushing! This redness is due to inflammation from the chapping weather. To calm and soother sensitive skin, first start with a gentle cleanser. Skip products with color, fragrance, or those that produce bubbles or have “antibacterial” on the label. These can all irritate skin.
Pure & Gentle Oatmeal Bar Soap is formulated natural oatmeal, coconut oil, and is enriched with palm oil. It naturally exfoliates skin to remove dead, dry unwanted skin cells to reveal the soft and beautiful skin that lies beneath. Plus, the oatmeal in the bar is a natural calming agent that works to soothe inflammation.
Next, lather up and moisturize with a lotion that is suitable for sensitive skin. Pure & Gentle’s Sensitive Skin Lotion is infused with skin healing Arnica oil and is lanolin, dye and fragrance free to prevent irritation. This unique formula moisturizes and protects the most sensitive winter skin while fighting dryness and cracks, leaving you with a deep penetrating silky feel.
After cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing, if your sensitive skin is still red and blotchy—you are in luck. Thanks to some fabulous products on the market, redness is easier than ever to cover up. There are an array of green-tinted concealers and foundations available that perfectly cut out the red and makes skin appear neutral. Additionally, be sure to use a sunscreen of at least 30 SPF. Sun damage is the leading cause of skin sensitivity—even in cold weather. Whether you apply sunscreen below your makeup or use a foundation with SPF built in, this step is imperative for healthy skin.
Facial sensitivity is not the only issue we see in these harsh winter months. Scalp sensitivity and dandruff are also leading issues for many. Thankfully, Pure & Gentle has just the solution. Our Sensitive Skin Hair Shampoo is formulated with best available plant derived ingredients that minimize skin irritation while giving superior performance. Finally, stop after one glass of wine or alcoholic drink. Overdoing it dehydrates the skin and enlarges the blood vessels near the facial skin causing even more sensitivity.
Fight the elements and stop skin sensitivity and redness. Follow these tips and use Pure & Gentle sensitive skin products and you are sure to see a difference.
