This month, Sásta Skin Health is delving into the world of sensitive skin and its impact on overall skin health. Understanding the difference between sensitive skin and sensitised skin is crucial for effective skincare. Sensitive skin is genetically prone to reactions, while sensitised skin is influenced by lifestyle choices. While the symptoms of sensitive skin and sensitised skin are similar, the key difference lies in their presentation. Are you experiencing a reaction due to excessive retinol usage, or does even the smallest amount of essential oils cause your skin to react? Pay close attention to these common symptoms: inflammation, itchiness, dryness, redness, and soreness.
By identifying triggers, selecting suitable products, and nurturing a healthy skin microbiome, individuals can maintain a balanced complexion. As the largest organ in our body, our skin serves as our first line of defence against the outside world. Our skin is home to trillions of bacteria that act as a protective shield, guarding us against invaders and potential infections. These bacteria, (our superhero shields) are created by our own good bacteria and are needed to maintain a healthy balance and protect our skin’s well-being.
Myth 1: You should always double cleanse your face
Double cleansing is not always necessary. While it may be beneficial to remove makeup or excess dirt, constantly cleansing can disrupt the natural balance of skin microbes. Instead, Sásta Skin Health encourages you to consider if your face truly requires double cleansing or if warm water alone can suffice.
Myth 2: You only need SPF in the summer
In Ireland, many people believe they only need their SPF on sunnier days. Contrary to popular belief, sun protection is not exclusive to the warmer weather. Sásta Skin Health emphasises that UVA and UVB rays can penetrate the skin year-round, regardless of visible sunlight. These rays can impact the skin’s microbiome, making daily SPF application essential, regardless of the weather.
Myth 3: You need multiple products to treat multiple concerns
Gone are the days of a 10-step skincare routine. Instead, Sásta Skin Health advocates for multi-use products that address various skin needs simultaneously. By opting for versatile skincare solutions, individuals can simplify their routines, save money, and contribute to a more sustainable approach to skincare.
