5 tips for calming irritated skin


Itchy skin or Skin Redness can be caused due to various reasons including prolonged exposure to extreme temperatures, seasonal or dietary transformations, metal or fabric allergies, bug bites and so on. While there are many medications and skincare products available, some natural ways to care for your skin, managing stress levels, sleep cycle and having proper diet are of utmost importance as well. Rest assured, if your itching lasts for more than six weeks then it is best that you visit a dermatologist.

There are many at home remedies you can use to soothe and calm your itchy or irritated skin and to avoid flare ups as well. But these methods might only bring relief for a short span of time. We have got some tips for you to calm your irritated skin and here’s all that follows:

Use natural or chemical free skin products:

Home made products like chickpea and yogurt face masks and natural products like sesame oil or skin care products with essential oils like tea tree oil, peppermint oil and so on are great way to soothe out the redness and itching of your skin. Do not change your skincare products often, in a rush or just by getting tempted. First and foremost, you need to ensure that the enlisted ingredients on your skincare product are the ones which suit your skin type. And then decide to go ahead with using the product. 

You can also perform a skincare test by putting a small amount of the product on a limited surface of your skin to see how your skin behaves. This might prevent greater damage and help you decide on the product too.

Use skincare products with cooling agents:

    If you have itchy and irritated skin then it is best to use products with cooling agents like peppermint, menthol or calamine. Moreover, you can also use moisturizers with cooling agents like these in them. Aloe vera is a natural cooling agent and we also have products with many more such ingredients.

    Take precautions before you step out in extreme weather:

      If you are staying at a place of extreme heat or extreme cold, then you need to take precautions accordingly. A good amount of body powders, bathing twice a day with apt shower gels/ soap bars, face wash and face wipes to suit your skin type are all the basic ways to avoid as well as get rid of itchy skin.
      Similarly, for winters, keep your moisturizers handy. We have a whole range of moisturizers you can select from. What’s more that a good moisturizing routine before sleeping and after freshening up for the day will keep your body hydrated and protect your skin from becoming dry and flaky? It also reduces inflammation and itchiness.

      Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize:

        Hydrating your skin is the most important thing and should top your list of steps in skincare routine. So, drink plenty of water and get yourself moisturizers with hydraulic acid. What’s more is that you should scrub, exfoliate and tone your face at regular intervals. Moisturizing helps prevent dullness of skin while also making up for the essential oils. You should select a moisturizer depending on your skin type. Usually a gentle, exfoliating moisturizer is a good and popular choice. You can have a look at all the huge varieties of moisturizers and other skincare products we have for everyone out there.
        Eat healthy, drink healthy, exercise well:

          Following a skincare regimen is extremely important and there is no alternative to that but what is equally important is that you eat healthy, drink tons of water and exercise regularly. There is no plan B to this! Whatever you eat always shows up on your face, so eat carefully. Little guilty drools do no bad but indulging in processed food often can have alarming effects on your skin. Similarly exercising, meditating and having a proper sleep cycle helps you manage your stress levels which has a positive effect on your skin and overall health as well
