Whether you are born with sensitive skin, or find your skin reacting to certain ingredients or environmental factors, sensitivity is a growing dermatological concern. Due to this, special care needs to be taken for such skin type.

This summer why not introduce an ultra-gentle sensitive range of skincare to your beauty routine?

Experts have identified 7 signs of skin sensitivity in the lines of dryness, dullness, roughness, tightness, redness, irritation, and dehydration. Look for mild, gentle, hypoallergenic, sulphate-free and fragrance-free products.

Avoid product overload, and try keeping it simple. Follow a fail-proof “cleanse, protect and prevent” ethos with a foaming micellar cleanser, day cream with SPF & hydrating night serum.

The range consists of the following three products that help soothe and intensely hydrate skin that is prone to sensitivity :

1. Look for cleansers with soothing elements like aloe vera, cucumber & rose extracts, gentle and hydrating enough to give soothing and anti-inflammatory benefits to the skin. Also, check if the product is dermatologically tested, hypoallergenic that helps restore pH balance and is free from fragrance, paraben and sulphates.

2. Protect your skin with a light textured day cream with a minimum SPF 25 that gives intense hydration & moisturization to sensitive skin along with UVA & UVB protection. An added bonanza will be something helps remove tan, lightens skin and gives a soothing sensation. The star ingredients to look for are Geranium Robertianum extract, Polyglutamic Acid & allantoin to keep you covered all year round!

Skincare Routine for Different Phases of Menstrual Cycle

Alter your skincare regime to follow your menstrual cycle

Menstrual cycle
There are a whole host of reasons why we suddenly breakout, but the main culprit is hormonal changes, especially throughout a woman's menstrual cycle. Pixabay

Within a 28-day cycle our complexion can change drastically; from crystal clear one minute, to pimples the next, super dry and flaky to oily and unpleasantly shiny. Whether you are a pimple popper or a diligent skincare devotee, we just cant win against the spots and zits that Aunt Flo brings in.

There are a whole host of reasons why we suddenly breakout, but the main culprit is hormonal changes, especially throughout a woman’s menstrual cycle, say experts.

To understand the cause and amp up your arsenal to fight the zits, here are the stages of a menstrual cycle and changes our body goes through:

Stage 1: The Menstrual Phase (Day 1 to 5)

You need to take special care of your skin during the first phase of your menstrual cycle. Pixabay

The first phase starts with day one of your period, and it tends to be the peak time of the month when we are most vulnerable to breakouts. During this time, our bodies start to produce excess oestrogen, which triggers the production of oil and sebum, and causes skin the main aggregators to spots. Try to battle the sluggishness of the body that accompanies during such time and take care of skin by gently exfoliating and cleansing the face, especially the T-zone, which is often the main problem area as it is the most oily, as well as our chin, and around the nose too.

Stage 2: The Follicular Phase (Day 5 to 15)

The midpoint in a woman’s cycle is when we notice our skin has become dry and flaky, in comparison to the week before, which left us feeling like a grease ball, all because our oestrogen levels have dropped.

During these 10 days our skin, and body, is crying out for some extra TLC. Say yes to hydration for repairing the skin’s barrier after a week of going through the volatility of hormones in the first phase.

Hydrating masks, deeply nourishing moisturisers, vitamin sprays, and simply drinking all the H20 will work wonders on the skin and help to achieve the desired glow.

Stage 3: Luteal Phase (Day 15 to 28)

In the last leg of your cycle, and the prime time to show off your radiant skin in all the selfies your camera roll can handle.

During these two-weeks ahead of your next period your blood circulation will increase, thanks to oestrogen, which instantly leaves us looking fresh faced with a bit more colour in our cheeks. Although oestrogen will start to rise again it is not to the point where our face becomes too oily.

Our skin in this fortnight will easily absorb ingredients, which is why we still need to be mindful of what we put on our skin, and in our bodies too.

So, while you are tailoring your beauty routine, be a 10-step Korean-inspired regime or a simple CTM, try making changes keeping in mind the monthly cycle to retain the glow throughout the year. (IANS)
