How to Care for Sensitive Skin
"If you or your little one suffers from dry and sensitive skin, having the right skincare regimen is incredibly important."
Step 2 : Moisturise all over. Moisturise as soon as you have patted your skin dry (no harsh rubbing please!). Apply your moisturiser in gentle circular motions, and use upward strokes around the neck and face. Make sure to concentrate on the crooks of your arms and the backs of your knees and ears as it’s usually in the joints where flare-ups of dry skin are triggered! During winter, or if you sleep in air-conditioning or heating, moisturise in the morning as well after your cleansing routine as a dry sleeping environment can deplete the skin of its much-needed moisture.
Step 3 : Added care for sensitive areas. Dry and sensitive skin needs extra care in some places and that’s where a richer, thicker cream or balm comes in. Particularly in the joints or crooks of your arms and legs, lips, hands, or in any folds of skin, extra moisturising and barrier protection is often needed to avoid triggering flare-ups of sensitivity. Apply immediately after applying lotion after bath-time, and reapply every three hours or so throughout the day to keep those areas moisturised and to prevent the start of that itch-scratch cycle.
