The Complete Guide to Sensitive Skin Products 2019

If you live with sensitive skin, regular activities can be a challenge. Going for a swim, spending time outdoors, or trying out new makeup may cause adverse reactions. You might not be able to wear perfume, wash clothes with certain detergents, or eat some foods without consequences.

While you can benefit from consulting a dermatologist, you can also take steps to protect and heal your sensitive skin at home. First, let’s discuss some of the reasons why your skin might be out of balance.

What causes sensitive skin?

Healthy skin protects a body against harmful influences in the environment. It has a layer of protective fats and cells that retains moisture and keeps skin elastic. This shield is also a little acidic to ward off bacteria, too.

If that protective layer is too thin or compromised by damage, your skin might lose too much water. And it may allow in irritants like microbes, chemicals, or UV radiation. Then you’ll notice symptoms like redness, itching, blistering, and peeling.

Skin Types

DRY/MATURE SKIN

Dry and/or mature skin tends to be just that – dry and thin with small or invisible pores. Common skin complaints include dehydration, tight skin, fine lines and/or wrinkles and premature aging.

COMBINATION SKIN

Combination skin types don’t struggle with overly oily or overly dry skin and typically consider themselves to have “normal” skin. When their skin is out of balance, they may experience sensitivity, breakouts, redness and/or inflammation.

OILY SKIN

Oily skin types usually have thicker skin, larger pores and are oily in the T-zone. Common skin imbalances include excessive oiliness, cystic acne and/or blackheads. If you can put a tissue anywhere on your face and absorb oil, this is your line!

Return of the Beauty Ritual

In the chaos of life in this millennium, BLOOM believes in taking the time to connect the modern woman with her true femininity. We don’t offer a general cleanser or moisturizer – we offer a personalized beauty ritual to practice daily and enjoy with deep satisfaction.

 Step 1: GLOW and POLISH

Dampen your face with water. Put a dime-size amount of GLOW onto a cotton ball/pad and swipe your eyes and face clean of makeup. Put a scoop of POLISH into the palm of your hand and add a dime-size amount of GLOW and a few drops of water. For morning and evening use, make a paste and rub lightly onto your face for about 30 seconds. For a deep cleansing mask, leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse well and pat dry. {Extremely sensitive skin types should only POLISH once daily}

Step 2: HYDRATE and NOURISH

Spritz your face liberally with HYDRATE. Do not dry. Gently rub two drops* of NOURISH into your skin and allow to soak in. If you are feeling dry, apply NOURISH directly to your skin after using POLISH. *(Start with 1-2 drops and increase as needed.)

Step 3: RESTORE

Apply a small amount of RESTORE to the area around the eyes and elsewhere on the face, as needed. The area between the eye brows and the “laugh lines” next to the mouth are especially nice.

Enjoy your beauty. Enjoy your BLOOM.
