Protect sensitive skin with hypoallergenic skincare! Here’s how

Complete Guide to Understanding Sensitive Skin

Trying out a new skincare product might turn out to be an absolute nightmare for you, if you suffer from sensitive skin. While allergic reactions such as itching and rash may occur at all times, sensitive skin is more prone to them.

If you do have sensitive skin, using hypoallergenic skincare products can help prevent allergic reactions altogether. These are often clinically tested to ensure they don’t irritate the skin barrier and provide good protection against environmental factors.

Prior to diving deep into the solution, let us find out the common culprits that generally cause mayhem to sensitive skin.

Determine allergy causing ingredients

Since allergens can be quite specific to the individual and their skin type, much like a food allergy, it is difficult to pinpoint which ingredients are common allergens. However, there are still a few red flags to look out for. Fragrances, preservatives, and parabens are at the top of the list and are perhaps the most common category of allergens for sensitive skin. 

Unlock the Power of Ingredient Combinations

You should also pay attention to ingredient combinations. Often, a single ingredient might be gentle on the skin by itself but might cause problems when mixed with other ingredients that change its chemical composition. 

That being said, any ingredient has the potential to cause an allergic reaction and you can develop one at any time. It is therefore a good idea to do a patch test before you start using a product to ensure you don’t have any extreme reactions. This is why it’s also a good idea to use hypoallergenic skincare that is backed by experts and recommended by dermatologists to be better suited for sensitive skin.

How to choose hypoallergenic products

The term ‘hypoallergenic’ is used to signify skincare products that contain fewer ingredients that are known to cause an allergic reaction. These products are less volatile and are a safer choice for anyone with sensitive skin.

Typically you want products that are fragrance-free and clinically tested to not have harsh ingredients such as parabens and sulphates. For instance our HYA-B5 technology which is specifically formulated for dry skin uses potent ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, sodium hyaluronate, pentavitin and pro-vitamin B5 that work to hydrate the skin and protect the skin barrier.

Gentle and Effective products for sensitive skin

You need to take care of your skin, no matter what skin type you have but sensitive skin requires a little extra caution. This is why, while searching for any skincare products, look for the term ‘hypoallergenic’ on the packaging. And stick to using products like HYA-B5 and hyaluronic acid that are clinically-proven to work for sensitive skin. Also, do not forget to do a patch test before you start using them to ensure your skin doesn’t get damaged even if you do have an allergic reaction.
