When your skin starts to age, there are many changes that can start to occur. Everyone’s skin is different as well which calls for different treatments and skin care routines. While some many experience drier skin with age, others may experience increased skin sensitivity and irritation. Read below some common skin issues and how to treat them with specific Clear Essence skin care products…
Some simple changes to your bath time can reduce (or alleviate) dry, itchy skin and prevent dry skin from becoming a serious problem. Here’s what you can do: use a gentle, creamy cleanser. Clear Essence natural soap bars contain gentle ingredients found in nature such as carrots, lemon, olive oil and cucumber extracts. Use warm (not hot) water when bathing, hot water strips skin of its natural oils, which can increase skin dryness; use a soft cloth to wash your skin, a loofah or bath brush can irritate your skin.
• Keep your bath or shower short. You may find that you don’t need to bathe every day. When you bathe, keep it short. Take a 10-minute bath or shower to prevent overdrying the skin.
• Pat water gently from your skin after bathing, but leave a bit of water on your skin. Having some water on your skin when you apply moisturizer (next step) helps hydrate your skin.
Find your skin to be more sensitive to certain skin care ingredients? Some skin care habits, such as scrubbing your skin clean, can cause irritation to increase. Using mild skin care products and being gentle with your skin can help prevent flare-ups.
If most skin care products cause redness, burning, or stinging, try more gentle ingredients for sensitive skin types. Clear Essence recommends its Sensitive Skin Care Line comprised of licorice extracts, shea butter, and sesame seed oil. Try the Clear Essence Sensitive Line Moisturizing Body Oil to plump and hydrate the skin. Use the Clear Essence Sensitive Line Texturizing Complexion Lotion to soften dry patches such as hands, heels, elbows and the full body after bathing and when skin feels dry or tight. Completing this routine daily helps alleviate irritated skin and soften your skin texture for an even, natural glow.
