If you suffer from sensitive skin, then you are probably constantly worried about how easily your skin can become irritated and inflamed.
Sensitive skin means that you probably suffer from one or more irritants.
Heat, diet and humidity levels may also trigger a reaction for sensitive skin conditions.
People who suffer from sensitive skin are commonly prone to:
- Red/blemished skin
- Rough or scaly patches of skin
- Itchy skin
Although scratching can give us some relief, it can sometimes lead to further breakdown of the skin’s natural barrier, further irritation and possible skin damage.
Sensitive skin sufferers need carefully selected skin care products which avoid ingredients that may aggravate already sensitive skin and should particularly avoid products containing parabens, fragrance and other known allergens (such as alcohol based ingredients).
Here are some Cuderm® tips for managing
Moisturise problem areas of your skin frequently throughout the day using Cuderm® Cream or Cuderm® Hand Cream, smoothing it into the skin in a downward motion.
Bathe with soap-free Cuderm® Gel Wash instead of soap or detergent based products.
Immediately apply Cuderm® Lotion all over your body morning and night and after bathing.
Continue using moisturisers alongside any other topical treatment use are prescribed by a healthcare professional.
Avoid anything you think may cause itching, such as dust, grass, weeds, wool clothing, detergents, fabric softeners, perfumes, etc.
You should consult your GP about treatment if the condition is severe.
