    Moisturizing Tips for Sensitive Skin

    Moisturizing Tips for Sensitive Skin

    Just like a decadent birthday cake, the key to healthy skin is moisture, moisture, moisture. Here are some things to remember when moisturizing:

    - If you use a prescription topical medication, apply it as directed, before you moisturize.
    - Use the “lock it in” method by applying a thick layer of moisturizer all over your skin within three minutes of bathing or showering. Could use our FRESHENGO Body oil capsules, 2 of these are good for the entire body
    - Pick a moisturizer that is sulphates and dye-free
    - Soften moisturizer by rubbing it between your hands and then apply it to your body using the palm, in downward strokes. Avoid rubbing in the moisturizer by stroking up and down, or in circles.
    - Allow enough time for moisturizer to be fully absorbed before removing the excess. 
    - Moisturize your hands every time you wash them or when they come into contact with water.

    It’s also important to know the difference between ointments, creams, and lotions. Ointments, which have the highest oil content, are usually medically prescribed for skin ailments. Almond oils  are the real MVP when it comes to being gentle and sealing in moisture. Creams come next on the oil scale, but are pretty impressive on the moisture front too! But be sure to read labels carefully — creams sometimes contain stabilizers or preservatives that can irritate sensitive skin types. Lotions have the least amount of oil, and are mostly made up of water. Proceed with caution if you have sensitive skin, as lotion is the most likely to burn when applied to skin that’s scratched or broken.
