How to apply your own skincare products to your skin

Pure cosmetics are a staple of a person’s makeup routine, but if you have sensitive skin, you may not be able to afford a skincore cream.

It is a popular choice for those with sensitive skin and dermatologists advise against using cosmetics that contain parabens or sulfates.

So, to help with the itchiness, Pure cosmetics have recently become popular among beauty and cosmetic dermatologists. 

The best time to apply them is when you are not already in a routine and when the itch is still a problem, said Dr Peter Tannock, who runs the Skin Care Specialist clinic at Brighton Hospital. 

“I would suggest using a powder that you apply directly to your face, which would make sure that you don’t have to worry about using a cream,” he said.

“You don’t want to be mixing it up with other products because you can’t control the way you use it.”

He also suggested a face mask, as you will be able control the amount of oil you apply and the size of the mask, but said you could try not using too much of it and only applying half of it.

You can apply it on top of your face and it will help prevent your skin from drying out.”””

It’s also worth looking at using a skin oil as a moisturiser.

The cream will have a calming effect on the skin.”

Try not to overdo it on the mask and don’t get too wet or oily, it will dry out your face,” Dr Tannocks advice. 

You might also want to avoid using any product that contains parabenic or sulfate-containing ingredients, as they can cause allergies.””

If you’re using one of those, be sure you read the ingredients carefully and not to use too much as it may lead to skin irritation,” he added.

Dr Tannocking advises you to always wash your face after using a skinceutical product.

“I do wash my face with soap and water, which makes my skin feel smoother and softer,” he explained.

“My advice would be to always do so before and after use, especially when you’re not using a mask.”

If you use an anti-inflammatory cream, such as AHA-L, you can add a cream of your choice to the mixture to help control the itch.

“It will also help to moisturise the skin, so I would suggest trying a cream with a light moisturiser,” Dr Chris said. 

If you have skin problems or acne scars, Dr Tennell advised using a non-comedogenic moisturiser to help alleviate the irritation. 

For those who are sensitive, Dr Chris advises using a moisturising cream before applying your skin conditioner.

“If it’s a sensitive skin condition, like eczema, it may be beneficial to use a noncomedogenic skin moisturiser, as it can ease the irritation and the redness, as well as give a moisturised surface for your skin to be able grip,” he advised. 

It’s important to not apply too much moisturiser as you can potentially damage the skin barrier and lead to an allergic reaction, so if you are looking for a cream to help combat the itch, then try a cream that is not parabening, he added
