How to calm IRRITATED and STRESSED OUT skin ?
At some point all of us experience a skin break down. The factors can be numerous. Sometimes your skin does not breathe enough, sometimes the weather conditions affect it and so on.
I had that recently, it never happened before so I was a bit lost at first. My first though was acne, but I have never had it before and there has been no hormonal changes since. I decided to go see a dermatologist.
My symptoms were the following: kind of a rash with lots of small red pimples, some would stay under the skin and make it look very bumpy and uneven. Not a great sight I can say. I decided to go to the dermatologist he diagnosed this as an allergy. I m still a bit sceptical about his diagnosis but I decided to give it a try.
He gave me a range of pharmaceutical creams. He said to use the least amount of tap water as it contains limestone.
My Routine :
- Unmake up with a milk, TOLERIANE, LA ROCHE POSAY using a cotton and the milk on top but I did not really like that. Instead I take some milk on my fingertip and work it into the skin just as I would with a cream. The good thing about this milk is since is is hypoallergenic I actually use it to remove the eye make and it works wonder. I am very pleased with it, will actually stick to this one. Another great benefit is while cleansing your skin it keeps it moisturised since it is milky.
- Spray some Thermal Spring Water, AVENE on your face on top on the milk then take a cotton pad and remove everything. You can repeat the process if you were wearing lot of make up.
- This one I use it every other day, is it just to boost the soothing effect of the routine. Redness Relief Soothing Mask, AVENE. Apply a thick layer on clean skin, leave for 10 minutes and remove excess with a cotton pad.
- The cream I use everyday is TOLERIANE, LA ROCHE POSAY, Sooting protective skincare. Its basically the most neutral cream ever. I have been appreciating it a lot also.
I am very pleased with my new routine and my skin has been doing great. I was really skeptical at first but it is really worth giving up some of the cosmetics products.
