If you saw my last video, I had a bad reaction to one of the skincare products in The Detox Market’s Best Of Green Beauty Box 2018.

I thought it would be a perfect time to share my go-to skincare routine for irritated skin, and what I do to heal red, raw and inflamed skin fast.

In general, if you have a sudden bad reaction to a skincare product, depending on the severity of the reaction, your skin can heal relatively quickly (in a few days, or a week or two).

If the irritation has been building up over time, like having a bad reaction to over-exfoliating or using a strong retinol; the healing can take longer (instead of a few days, it can take a few weeks, sometimes months).

So you’ve got to be patient.

And remember, LESS IS MORE!

Many times what stalls the healing isn’t your body’s ability to heal itself, but using the wrong skincare products that makes it worse.

I personally have to restrain myself from trying to treat my skin with too many products. It’s tempting, but it usually back fires and makes it worse. When your skin is irritated or sensitized, it’s not the time to be loading products on, or trying a bunch of new things. Instead you’ve got to be strategic and support the healing of your skin.

Watch today’s video to find out my skincare routine for irritated skin. I go through the products I use, how I use them, and what I don’t use when my skin is sensitized. I also go through a few diet and lifestyle tips to ensure your skin heals as quickly as possible.

Dry oil cleansing method

In the video I talked about the Dry Oil Cleansing Method and how it’s my favourite cleansing method for dry, irritated, and sensitive skin.

If you want to try it out, I have two videos and blog posts with step-by-step instructions, video demo, product recommendations, and answering a bunch of questions about dry oil cleansing.
