Sensitive Skin Types: Breaking News – You Can Enjoy a Facial
If your skin reacts to products harshly or more intensely than other types of skin, you tend to avoid trying different things. Those with sensitive skin are the most likely to not book a facial because of the fear of the service being too severe for them. However, this common misconception can be avoided and your skin will love the pampering – when done correctly.
Sensitive Skin Facials
When it comes to sensitive skin, not only does it react more strongly to skin care products, but it can also be much more unpredictable. Redness, irritation, inflammation, these can all be a result of a facial for sensitive skin types. The term sensitive skin can have a large range, though, as it can be applied to many different aspects of the skin reacting. Some of these terms for sensitive skin can be under:
- Acne-prone skin
- Allergic reactions
- Razor burn
- Itchy skin
When you think of the broadness that sensitive skin can be applicable for, then you wonder how so many people can go have a facial. The reason for this is that sensitive skin can actually improve from facials. It’s important that when you make that leap to overcome the fears of “what if” regarding a facial, that you also take the necessary precautions before you begin.
What are these steps?
First and foremost, if you have ultra sensitive skin and only ever see a dermatologist for skin care products and problems, then it would be best to consult with them on what type of facial you should choose. When you go to the spa for a facial, always make sure you tell the aesthetician that you have sensitive skin. Also, it helps if you know what irritates your skin and to let them know those ingredients too.
With sensitive skin, being careful from start to finish is the surefire way to avoid any negative reactions. The most common types of skin care and ingredients to steer clear from are:
- Vitamin C serums
- Benzoyl Peroxide
- Salicylic acid
Luckily, there are facials that are packed with ingredients and skin care products that are all about healing, nurturing, and plumping the skin without irritating it. It’s all about having a professional aesthetician that knows how to treat sensitive skin.
