Do you have sensitive skin? A lot of people who have this experience reactions such as itching, burning, or redness when it comes into contact with skincare products that trigger their skin’s sensitivities. Antibacterial products may not be the first thing that comes to mind but areas of dry, flaky skin or swollen skin can actually be an entry point for germs.
Given today’s uncertain times, we need to be able to give our skin the germ protection it deserves. Thankfully, the new breakthrough Safeguard Gentle Micellar Face and Body Cleanser is here so we no longer need to compromise between getting gentle skincare and germ protection for our face and body!
The Safeguard Gentle Micellar series is paraben-free, offers 99.9% germ protection, and is as gentle as freshwater on the skin with its Micellar technology. It also has three variants: Unscented, Berries & Pear and Coconut & Peach to suit your sensitive skin needs.
As we continue to navigate through our new normal, here are simple ways you can keep your sensitive skin happy, germ protected, and functioning at its healthiest according to board-certified dermatologist, founder of Derm HQ and co-founder of BeautiqueMD Dr. Gaile Robredo-Vitas.
- Less is always more. One of the best ways you can care for your sensitive skin is to make sure you don’t overuse your face and body. Washing or exfoliating it too much may weaken your skin’s barrier, allowing external irritants such as dirt, dust, and other bacteria to penetrate the skin easily.
- Make sure to read the ingredients in the products you want to try. The best way to manage sensitive skin is to identify and avoid products that contain ingredients that trigger its sensitivity. Products that are paraben-free and dermatologically tested can be considered. If you’re experiencing pre-existing skin conditions, it is also important to consult with your doctor or dermatologist.
- Strengthen your skin’s first line of defense with Micellar technology. Micellar consists of purified water, hydrating moisturizers, and gentle surfactants that amply work on sensitive skin too. One of the most vital ingredients in Micellar water is micelles—these are minuscule concentrated molecules that are both water-loving and oil-loving. These help ensure the skin’s moisture remains intact as it cleanses one’s skin.
