Before You Start Your Skincare Routine
The challenge in finding the right skincare routine using products that won’t cause rashes or leave your skin dry and irritated can be difficult. We understand it takes a lot of work and research.
Youtubers and Tik Tok influencers are helping numerous skincare and cosmetic companies increase sales. Influencers have inspired us to share our personal skincare routines for morning and night on social media. The BIG question is: How do we know these brands work for everyone, including those with sensitive skin? The thing about skincare is not every brand will work for you. Certain brands may or may not help in relieving a person’s sensitive skin issues.
Much like getting into hair care, when getting into skincare, a person must do their research. If you have very sensitive skin or a condition like ecezma, you may want to consult with a dematologiest to determine which products are best for your skin type and skin conditions. A dermatologist might even prescribe skin or body care products specific for your skincare needs.
Social media has kept us up to dateon the latest trends. Social media influencers have inspired us to run to the store for the latest facial cleanser we saw on Tik Tok or pressing a button on our phone to buy a product and have it delivered to our door in 24 hours. However, it can be challenging for those with sensitive skin to participate in buying a specific trending item, hoping it doesn’t cause an allergic reaction or a flare-up of eczema.
Who amongst us hasn't gone out and bought the same skincare items our favorite influencers use. Hoping it has the same effect on us as it does on them. At the same time, skincare is not a one-sized fit hat. We’ve all been there feeling disappointed by the items we purchased, leaving us with a rash or breaking us out even more.
Before purchasing a the latest brand or trending skincare item, look at the ingredients listed on the product label. Make sure the product does not contain anything you know will cause an allergic reaction or irritates your skin. Even skincare items that contain natural ingredients can irritate the skin or worsen an existing condition. If you are not sure about how natural herbs or florals used in products might affect your skin, check with a demeratologist before spending any money.
Also check if brand's products cater to those with sensitive skin. People of color especially should look into POC-friendly products that understand the specific skincare needs of POC.
By doing a bit of research on ingredients included in the product, you are helping yourself save money and your skin!. Do the research, buy products that won’t break you out, and most importantly, get your relaxation on.
