Sensitive skin is difficult to maintain, and even more so when you lead an active and outdoor lifestyle. Whether you work outside, enjoy the fresh air when exercising, or participate in an occasional jog in the park, these helpful suggestions can benefit anyone with sensitive skin trying to battle the ever-changing climate.
SPF: Regardless of the time of year, it’s important to always protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Restorsea Rejuvenating Day Lotion SPF 30 can be applied before heading outdoors to prevent future damage.
Bug Bite-Prevention: Although one may jump to grabbing bug-spray as means of protection, experts suggest that dousing your skin with insect repellent, particularly those with high concentrations of deet can trigger reactions in sensitive skin. Instead, try covering up with long sleeves and protective clothing made of lightweight fabric. Deet alternatives are also available, and are less likely to irritate sensitive skin. Try Repel Plant Based Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent.
Heat Rash: Heat rash can happen in all climates, and is the consequence of blocked sweat glands. Prevent heat rash by working out during the morning to avoid excess moisture in the air and on your skin. You can also apply Gold Bond Body Powder to sweat-prone areas. To soothe existing heat burn, hydrate the affected areas with a cream that contains calming oatmeal, hydrating shea, and eucalyptus oil.
Moisturize: Make sure to hydrate your skin, especially during outdoor activities in the winter months. Restorsea Rejuvenating Day Cream works as a great every-day moisturizer, while Restorsea Night Cream contains olive oil for extra hydration.
