Wat is skin irritation?

Skin irritation can be a very annoying problem and can considerably limit your choice of care products. As with all other skin types, it is essential to use the right products for your skin to ensure that the skin does not get irritated. Some products can calm the skin and make it calmer.

Here you can read more about the skin with irritations, which products are suitable, and what you should not do with this skin type.

What is skin irritation?

Skin irritation can occur at all ages and can also happen suddenly. It occurs when the protective barrier function of the skin is weak. Because of this weakening, bacteria, allergens, chemicals, and other contaminants have a better grip on the surface. If the skin becomes irritated, the symptoms are often flakes, swellings, and redness. The skin can also itch.

Do not do with skin irritation

The irritated skin is susceptible, and so it is essential to treat this skin with care. Watch out with stubborn cleaners such as soap; even in detergents, these cleaners can cause skin irritation. Perfume and preservatives can also irritate the skin.
Washing too often with ordinary water can be harmful to skin irritation. Water can (however contradictory it may sound) dry out the skin considerably, which can cause more irritations, redness, and itching.

So do not clean the skin too often and use very mild products when cleaning, suitable for this skin type.

Take care of irritated skin

The gentle cleansing, discussed above, is the first step in proper skincare. Mild products are a must for skin with irritations. For cleaning the surface, we recommend milk or oil. The hannah Cleansing Oil is an example of a very mild oil that gently cleanses the face. The Cenzaa Velvet Creamy Milk is also a very suitable product, but in the form of cleansing milk that not only cleanses the face but also completely removes makeup.

After using cleansing milk, we recommend hannah Sensitive Skin Lotion. This lotion soothes the skin and also increases the resistance of the natural protective layer of your skin.

After cleansing the skin and using a lotion, it is essential to provide the surface with a nourishing and protective cream. The Cenzaa Calming Senses is a cream that ensures good skin flora and optimal cell improvement. This cream, for sure, reduces the redness in the face. IK Skin Perfection HYAMAX+ is very suitable for dehydrated, sensitive, and irritated skin, but is also ideal for all other skin types.

A calming mask, once or twice a week, can help calm the skin even further. Cenzaa Delight Touch is an intensive moisturizing, repairing and nourishing mask that is very suitable for this skin type.

Finally, it is essential to adequately protect the skin when it comes into contact with the sun. Sun can cause skin irritation to get worse. Proper sun protection prevents and protects the skin against UVA and UVB rays at the same time.

The IMAGE Skincare PREVENTION+ Daily Matte Moisturizer SPF30 is a unique moisturizer and sun protection in one. In addition to UVA and UVB filters, this cream also contains antioxidants and essential vitamins, which hydrates the skin, while damage caused by, for example, free radicals are prevented. 

It is essential to be careful with skin irritation: protect the skin well against the sun and do not clean the surface too often. With the right products, the skin with skin irritation can be cared for in the proper mild way so that the problems not only remain under control but can reduced also.
