How to Treat Sensitive Skin

One of the most difficult types of skin care is sensitive skin because it is highly reactive and smooth. Sensitive skin usually leads to excessive reactions when using cosmetics, soap, shampoo, or sunscreen lotion. This condition can get worse when sensitive skin exposed to dry and cold air. Here are some ways to care for sensitive skin.

Use sunscreen
Use sunscreen with materials such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide that offer wide spectrum protection with no side effects. Use a Sunscreen that has SPF-30 or more. Wear loose clothing to protect your skin.

Drink lemon water every day.
Start your day with a glass of lemon water. Vitamin C and other antioxidants in the lemon fight against free-radical skin damage and cleanse toxins from the blood so that the skin is free of acne, smudges, wrinkles and other problems. In addition, the content of vitamin C in  lemon will help the process of formation of natural collagen in the body.
Apply light makeup.
Be careful using makeup. Use face powder, silicone-based eyebrow pencil to reduce irritation, and stay away from waterproof cosmetic. Try not to share makeup with others, and do not use makeup excessively, even better if people who have sensitive skin do not use makeup at all.
Choose skin care products wisely.
Avoid products containing alcohol, sodium sulfates, acids, dyes, or synthetic fragrances because they can irritate the skin. Choose products that have powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients such as white tea, green tea, aloe vera, chamomile, marine plants, calendula, and wheat.
If it is difficult to find a product that is safe for the skin, choose a product with a hypoallergenic or fragrance-free label.
Consumption of healthy foods
Eat a healthy diet. Take care and consider the balance of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, proteins, omega3 and unsaturated fats. Increase intake of anti-inflammatory foods will reduce inflammation of the sensitive skin.
