Sensitive skin tolerates the use of cosmetics and personal care products less well than normal skin. In surveys, about 50% of women and 40% of men report having sensitive skin. You may not even know you have sensitive skin until you have a bad reaction to a cosmetic product, such as soap, moisturizers or makeup.
Conditions that cause sensitive skin are rarely serious. You can usually control symptoms with a few simple changes to your skin care routine. Here at Beneva Black, you'll find skin care products specifically designed to meet the needs of sensitive skin.
What causes sensitive skin?
Sensitive skin is exacerbated by dry skin. When your skin loses too much water and oil, it can cause the skin to itch, flake or flake, peel or feel rough, or even crack and bleed.
What can you do about sensitive skin?
You can treat dry skin by moisturizing the affected areas. With creams specially formulated for sensitive skin, you can restore your skin's moisture balance without irritating it with harsh ingredients. This will prevent your skin from drying out in the future. Use a fragrance-free moisturizer from our Beneva Black range.
Gentle cleansing: Use a gentle, soap-free cleanser that won't wash out healthy oils.
To moisturize: A gentle, fragrance-free cream-based moisturizer, such as our 24h Sensitive Face Cream, will help lock in moisture and protect your skin throughout the day. If you want to take your skincare routine to the next level, you can apply the 24h Sensitive Serum underneath to help the skincare ingredients penetrate your skin's layers even better. Once a week, it is also recommended to apply a face mask to really pamper your skin and restore its balance. For men, we recommend the Qaveman Sensitive face cream.
General tips for sensitive skin
When you have sensitive skin, it can feel like everything is irritating. But with a few lifestyle changes, you can see a significant improvement. Here are a few tips that can help anyone with sensitive skin:
Take short showers of 5 to 10 minutes with warm - not hot - water
Avoid harsh, coarse-grained facial scrubs
Use a gentle, fragrance-free cleanser, gel or lotion
Use a gentle, fragrance-free detergent
Always use a shaving cream or gel
Gently pat your skin dry after showering (instead of rubbing) and apply a moisturizer immediately
Test new products on a small patch of your skin for at least a day before trying a full application
