Sensitive skin is never fun but it can be particularly difficult when it appears on the face. Facial skin tends to be more delicate in general, so dealing with sensitive skin on top of that can make it even more challenging to find makeup or skincare products that work. In addition, a flare up on the face may not only be uncomfortable, but it may also be a cause of embarrassment.
In this blog post, we’re sharing sensitive skin face products to soothe sensitive skin on the face. Read on!
Causes of Sensitive Skin on the Face
You may be experiencing sensitive skin on the face for a few different reasons. For example, eczema is a common skin condition that can appear on the eyelids, cheeks, chin, and sides of the nose. While symptoms vary from person to person, you can expect dryness, itchiness, tenderness, and possibly a burning or stinging sensation – especially when using makeup or skincare products that contain chemicals or toxins.
Sensitive facial skin may also be the result of allergic contact dermatitis. This occurs when you have an allergic reaction to a specific substance that the body mistakenly identifies as harmful. For sensitive skin on the face, fragrances, soaps, jewelry, cosmetics and skincare are common triggers.
Finally, your sensitive facial skin may be due to rosacea, a condition that causes the skin to appear red and inflamed. It usually develops on the cheeks and nose but it can also spread to the forehead, back, chest, or ears.
It often resembles a permanent blush and can cause extreme sensitivity to certain products, resulting in a painful burning or stinging sensation.
Skincare and Sensitive Skin
When it comes to skincare, regardless of whether you have sensitive skin or not, we’re big advocates for clean beauty. This means choosing natural products that put the health of your skin and our planet first. Clean beauty products nourish your body rather than expose it to a variety of chemicals and toxins that will eventually find their way into your bloodstream.
We recommend staying clear from harmful ingredients including fragrance, parabens, phthalates, formaldehyde, and petrolatum. Be sure to read labels carefully and always do a small patch test first before applying any new products to your skin, especially the face.
The Best Face Mask for the Face
Sensitive facial skin can often lead to ‘maskne’ or facial irritation especially when wearing a face mask for long periods of time.
We’re thrilled to offer a comfortable solution: our Remedywear™ 3 Layer Washable Face Mask for kids and adults. They’re made with super soft TENCEL and embedded with anti-inflammatory zinc oxide. The zinc-embedded fabric provides antibacterial and antimicrobial properties that help fight germs and bacterial growth that can build up on both the inside and outside of the mask.
With this breathable face mask, say goodbye to chafing, facial irritation and dermatitis caused by other face masks.
