against foreign influences such as toxins, soaps, bacteria, etc.

It consists of horny cells, which are strung together like bricks.

A mixture of the skin’s own fats (lipids) and other substances

hold her together. But this barrier can become holey. By

aggressive cleaning or certain ingredients gets the whole thing

System literally out of joint.

Water that was stored in the deeper layers of the skin and

your skin looks so plump and youthful, evaporates

through the openings. At the same time, nasty bacteria can now

sneak in and let blackheads sprout. The result: yours

Skin becomes sensitive, dry and unclean. Hello, sensitive skin!

The good news: Your skin can close these holes again.

And you can help her with that. What you have to do for it? Now

Unfortunately it will be difficult, because we have to practice ourselves in idleness.

1 – Do not wash face with soap.

Washing gels and cleansing milk will not only wash off the dirt

your skin, but also remove your own fats from your skin

Protective barrier. In addition, many natural cosmetic products contain

Alcohol in high quantities, which is absolutely not for sensitive skin

is useful.

If you do not make up, lukewarm water is enough for the

daily cleaning completely. If you make up, then

clean as mild as possible. But what does mild mean? I recommend

you the oil cleaning because this works moisturizing and attacks the

Skin barrier not on. You do not have to start running right now and

to buy you a product. Just use it for a first try

native olive oil. You’ll be amazed how good Mascara & Co are doing with it

have it removed.

Rule of thumb: cleanse so gently that you do not feel like

you should cream yourself.

2 – No night care.

While you are blissfully dreaming of pink unicorns, do yours

Skin all the work for you. It actually regenerates in

Sleep very fast and need it now – unlike the day

– no protection against environmental influences or dirty hands

in the face.

For night care, there are two philosophies that are different

could not be: some swear that the skin

should be packed particularly rich. The others preach

the fat-free night care.

This is explained as follows: Rich care seals your skin easily

to strong, thus preventing the evaporation of water

from the deeper layers of the skin. The result is great: firm skin

in the morning! Unfortunately luck only lasts a short time, because the effect is

start right away.

 

All we want to do is help your skin, its protective wall

repair. Because it is porous with sensitive skin as dry

Zwieback. But one after anonther.

To illustrate the function of our skin protection layers, I like to use the rain jacket. The material is

Water repellent, but before you get into the rainstorm

If you dare, you should additionally impregnate the jacket. The second

Layer extends the protection, because double holds better.

Your skin has a similar structure: the first protection is the

Acid mantle that coats your skin. That’s perfect

you tuned sweat-fat mixture shields your skin

all the nasty germs and bacteria that you have all day

over encounter. But respect, as the impregnation in the rain,

 

not sustainable. In the long term, your skin will unlearn, even for that

Compensate. It is getting noticeably drier and thereby

sensitive.

The fat-free night care, however, builds on the natural regenerative ability of the skin. So a light night cream you can

to attempt. However I recommend you this step only if

Your skin condition has improved. Because many ingredients will simply irritate your skin now. Also, make sure that

the care is alcohol free.

My recommendation: Make your Sleeping Beauty sleep nude without

Night care.

 

3 – Less is more.

What applies to any type of skin for the night, is also for sensitive skin

recommended on the day. Maybe you had a mimosa,

These small house plants, which reflexively their touch

Roll up the leaves. Sensitive skin is similarly sociable,

there you can mean it so well. She is dry, you are creaming. you

becomes impure, you wash. It starts from the beginning. A frustrating one

Vicious circle begins, until sometimes even water is already too much.

But do not worry, unlike mimosa your skin can

also different. For this you have to give her only one thing for the beginning:

Quiet. Instead of a Kosmetikarmada she just needs time, herself

to regenerate. Therefore, give up at least three days completely

on washing gels, creams, skinwash etc. Just wash with

lukewarm water. Do not rub too hard, do not cream. Also

Make-up should be avoided if possible. I know, just at

It can be hard work. But as soon as your skin returns to

Balance comes, it rewards you with an even

Complexion. A detailed guide to such a Rosskur you will find

By the way, on my website.

Even after that, less is more. Leave your skin alone in peace

Doing work. Reduce your maintenance and get on products

few but high quality ingredients.

4 – Do not apply too thick.

You see, sensitive skin is no coincidence. mostly

it is the result of overcare. But not only too many content

substances irritate the skin. Even with the crowd you can do it too well

mean. If you apply creams or oils too much, leave them alone

Swelling horny layer. Bacteria can penetrate more easily

multiply and make the barrier holey.

Dose the care therefore very sparingly. Moisten your face

First with water on, because that requires the skin to oils

to be able to record. Then distribute a small amount with the

Fingertips on the face. For oils is usually enough

Drops. For creams a maximum raisin-sized amount.

It is best to use a pure oil or cream

few ingredients, like our shea cream with soothing

Shea butter, three oils and vitamin E.

5 – Take it Easy.

Some impairments to our skin result from factors we can not – or do not want to – change. So is sensitive

Skin at least partially genetically determined. Also things that are us

make life difficult (stressful) or liveable (paaartyyy),

leave their mark on sensitive skin. Much of it you can

hardly influence it and if you try it, that often stresses

additionally.

Therefore: Take it easy and start with small steps. Take you

to start with a tip that you want to try. And

When you realize how well your skin is doing, there’s another

usually as a matter of course.

Can you handle it? Or do you have more questions?
