Our Favorite Tips for Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin has special needs, and, when not looked after correctly, will result in irritation, redness, skin reactions and more. OROGOLD brings you some of our favorite tips for looking after sensitive skin, so that you too can have a healthy summer glow.

Keep Skin Care Products Cold
Keeping your skin care products cold is even more important in these summer months, as an increase in blood flow will result in a higher level of heat and sensitivity in your skin. OROGOLD recommends storing your skin care products in the refrigerator, as using products with a cool temperature will help to constrict the capillaries in your skin, reducing redness and irritation.

Know Your Ingredients
Those with sensitive skin are likely to have had the condition throughout their lives, so, chances are that you are already relatively aware of the products that you should be staying away from. Generally, anything that contains a fragrance or parabens should be avoided, as these are often umbrella terms for a variety of different chemicals. OROGOLD advises that you look for ingredients that are natural and soothing, such as aloe vera, chamomile, white tea and coconut oil, as well as opting for product ranges that have been developed specifically for sensitive skin, such as the OROGOLD Lielle 24K Sensitive Skin Collection.

Less is More
Sensitive skin is easily overwhelmed, so, when it comes to your skin care products, you should always remember that less is more. All that you really need is a cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen, so keep your skin care routine to a minimum. The term ‘less is more’ also applies to the ingredient list that each of your products contain – the more ingredients that it has, the higher the chance of an ingredient irritating your skin, so be sure to check the ingredient list before purchasing a new product.

Be Gentle
Sensitive skin should always be treated with a gentle touch, so make sure to never unnecessarily rub or scrub your skin. After washing or cleansing your skin, be it your face or your body, OROGOLD recommends patting it dry rather than rubbing it.

Be Vigilant About SPF
Sensitive skin can become even more sensitive when it is exposed to the sun, causing irritation and rashes. To protect your delicate skin tissue, those with sensitive skin should be wearing a sunscreen with SPF 30 every day, even during the winter. If you find that most sunscreens tend to cause a skin reaction, OROGOLD suggests trying one that contains physical, rather than chemical, ingredients, such as zinc oxide or titanium oxide, as these are much less likely to irritate. You should also be making use of other forms of sun protection, such as sunglasses and a brimmed hat, to give your face some extra cover.

Although taking the best care possible of your sensitive skin can often seem like quite the challenge, OROGOLD’s sensitive skin tips should help you to prevent any extra reactions or irritations. Always remember to keep your skin as soothed and calm as possible, ensuring that it is always well hydrated and protected from the sun.
