Say Goodbye to Red, Irritated Skin with Uviña Skin
Whether you’re prone to it or it’s an effect of the dry winter air, no one likes red, irritated skin.
If you find yourself prone to dry, red, irritated, itchy, or cracking skin, you’re not alone. Men and women alike struggle with this affliction, especially in the winter when the air gets colder and dryer (a harsh combo for sensitive skin!).
There's no question that redness and irritation is cumbersome and uncomfortable, and thankfully, there's an answer to kicking it to the curb! You can help soothe and reduce the redness and irritation on your skin with natural, minimal, and soothing skincare. Here’s what you need to know about skin irritation, the ingredients that will help provide relief, and which natural and organic skincare products to buy.
What Causes Skin Irritation?
The first step in tackling your red, uncomfortable, and irritated skin is to understand skin irritation broadly and what causes it. Sometimes, skin irritation is chronic and can be a symptom of a condition, such as eczema. Other times, red or irritated skin could be the result of a sunburn or sun damage, as well as exposure to an irritant. An irritant could be an ingredient or chemical in a skincare product you’re using that doesn’t agree with your skin, a food that you’re allergic to, or a natural irritant like poison oak. Your skin irritation may also be a result of a medication you take that causes dryness, such as Accutane for acne. No matter what causes your redness or discomfort, it’s important to treat it with natural, healing skincare that will be gentle on your skin.
Which Ingredients are Best for Red, Irritated Skin?
Choosing the right ingredients is key in finding the best skincare for sensitive skin. Obviously, you want to reduce redness and keep skin irritant-free, but the right natural skincare routine will also help level your skin tone, brighten, and give you a clear, youthful glow. Opt for ingredients that have cooling, soothing, and healing properties, like bisbolol, chamomile extract, cucumber extract, and jojoba. Each of these natural ingredients give your skin a blanket of hydration, help heal your moisture barrier, and gently reduce redness and discomfort. It’s best to avoid not only ingredients that you know don’t agree with your skin, but also to avoid harsh chemicals and synthetic ingredients. Naturally-derived ingredients will help give your skin the best chance at healing.
