Hello beauties! For those of us who have sensitive skin, we understand the important of balanced skin. The smallest amount of disturbance in our skin, can cause monumental irritation aka acne. We are restricted to use and expose our skin to things that are simple and light in nature. Which is why I wanted to share with you 4 things you should never put on your sensitive skin.
Never put lemon/lime juice directly to skin.
If you ever have or have had uneven skin and you’re on a budget, you heard of this skincare remedy. Lemon juice is great for lighting the skin, and it’s available in anyone’s kitchen. However when you have sensitive skin, this is worst thing you could do to your skin. Lemon is extremely acidic on skin, so adding it directly to your skin will not only cause redness, but also severe, continual, acne. I will tell you the best way to use lemon for a more even skin, on another post ;).
Never use products that contain fragrance of any kind
Just like lemon juice, fragrances are also acidic. The tend to cause that tingling sensation to our sensitive skin. So avoid them if you can.
Avoid products with isopropyl alcohol and sodium chloride
Dermatologists recommend that isopropyl alcohol and sodium chloride be avoided. They are extremely drying to the skin, and can cause irritation to your skin.
Exfoliating the skin is great, but when you have sensitive skin you need to proceed with caution.Scrubbing too hard on your skin, will definitely cause you acne. So next time you want to exfoliate, try mixing baking soda powder with equal amount of coconut oil. This is the most effective exfoliate I ever used.
What product do you recommend avoiding for sensitive skin? Comment below ;). Thank you so much for reading.
