Before choosing any product makes sure to read the label and select the products that are specific for your skin type. There are some products, like retinol or prescription retinoids, that should only be used at night. Watch your skin’s reaction: Start with a very simple and easy routine to see how your skin responds. Once you‘re comfy, then you can add some further products such as exfoliants, face masks, and marks treatments to enhance your skin‘s health.
And never forget to patch test new skincare products, especially if you doubt you have dry, sensitive skin. A patch test can help you classify possible allergic reactions.
To patch test a new product:
- Use a small amount of your new product on the skin in a subtle area, such as the inside of your wrist or your inner arm.
- Then Wait for 48 hours to see if there‘s an allergic reaction.
- Check that area at 96 hours after use to see if you have a late reaction.
An allergic reaction may contain redness, irritation, small bumps, or discomfort. If you observe these signs, wash the area you tested with water and a mild cleanser. Then return that product and try something else that suits your skin type.
