Battle Skin Sensitivity During Seasonal Changes: Top Tips to Restore Skin Barrier

Daniel Kim Views  

How to Restore Your Skin Barrier During Seasonal Changes?

During seasonal transitions, your skin can become sensitive and prone to irritation. It’s crucial to pay extra attention to your skincare during these times. Improper skincare can exacerbate pre-existing sensitive skin conditions. While visiting a dermatologist is the most effective solution, self-management methods exist to soothe these symptoms.

What does red and sensitive skin indicate?

Many skin conditions manifest with symptoms such as itching, stinging, and redness. While there can be various causes for these symptoms, there may be primary steps you should take. Your skin, made up of the epidermis and dermis, has a critical defense line in the outermost layer of the epidermis, which is the skin barrier.

When this barrier breaks down for various reasons, external bacteria, viruses, etc., can invade and irritate. While it is best to visit a dermatologist when this happens, attempting to self-treat the condition can worsen the symptoms. It’s essential to know the appropriate emergency treatment methods.

Four Emergency Skincare Measures

1. Washing Face with Water Only in the Morning

In the morning, washing your face with water is best. When washed with water, cleaners dissolve the oily sebum and dirt on the skin’s surface. However, repeated use of cleansers can destroy the standard lipid structure of the skin barrier, making the skin more sensitive. Therefore, if you are not wearing makeup or sunscreen, it’s best to wash your face with water only. Even if you have excess sebum, washing your face with water only in the morning for a while is recommended.

2. Stop Using Skin Toners

Skin toners remove waste and acidify the skin. When skin is sensitive, toners can irritate, so it’s best to stop using them.

3. Stop Using Cotton Pads

Many people use cotton pads when using toners. However, physical stimulation can exacerbate already sensitive skin. It’s not that you should never use cotton pads, but when your skin barrier is weakened, it’s best to stop using them, cleansing tissues and cleansing pads.

4. Stop Wearing Makeup and Double Cleansing

Stopping the use of full-coverage makeup can be a solution. Makeup products contain iron oxide to match your skin color, sunblock ingredients, and other components that can clog your pores and cause irritation. Also, double cleansing to thoroughly clean your skin can irritate, weakening the skin barrier.
