What Is Causing My Skin Irritation?

If you have irritated skin then it is a good idea to find out what is causing it, as this is the best way to alleviate it, and so avoid any further irritation in the future. If you have an ongoing issue then it is always best to seek medical advice, from a GP, or even a dermatologist if required. This will give an important specialist opinion, with advice and treatment to then aid healing.

It is important to get a proper diagnosis for any skin irritation and different issues require different treatment, and many can get mixed up, such as psoriasis and eczema. Sometimes skin irritation can be a temporary occurrence from using skin products that are too harsh, or an allergy to a skin ingredient. This is why it is always best to use natural face products like Nakin’s, as these are designed to be kind to all skin types.

The problem with skin irritation issues is that once it appears, it can be hard to get rid of. They can be cleared up and skin can be healed, and the time it takes usually depends upon the length of time that the skin issue has been there for.

Some people are more prone to skin issues than others, as their skin is more sensitive and generally more reactive to being affected by things. Here the skin barrier is normally weakened, and this type of minor irritation is probably the easiest to improve.

If your skin is irritated then it is best to work out what is triggering it, as the trigger can then be avoided. For instance, in someone who has rosacea or eczema it could be the perfume or the scent, as too much in a product can be aggravating to skin. Keeping a diary or remembering which products you have used when your skin started having issues can really help to pinpoint the cause.

If you find that your skin is showing some mild sensitivity due to the strong face products that you are using, then this is easily corrected if we stop using them, and then work to heal the delicate skin barrier with our natural face products. We particularly recommend trying our Nakin Revitalising Face Oil as a first stop to help to heal and calm skin. Then you could try a simple routine as below, although remember to always check the ingredients will work for you, plus carry out a patch test before full use of a new product.

  • Begin your routine with our Advanced Cleansing Milk which is an oil-based cleanser that cleanses the face while hydrating and comforting at the same time, with the hyaluronic acid and the plant cleansing and conditioning extracts.
  • Use our Eye Cream Complex for the eye area which is hydrating, line smoothing and energising from its plant peptide, hyaluronic acid and stimulating plant and marine extracts.
  • The use our Revitalising Face Oil for your face and neck. The oil is rich and nutritious without being greasy. It helps to heal the skin barrier and immediately calms skin and leaves a lovely glow, plus is great at helping with stressed skin issues like dryness or sensitivity.
  • Seal all the goodness in with our Active Dew Face Cream which hydrates, nourishes and protects the skin with hyaluronic acid, cassia, pomegranate and plant oils. This is for day and night use. It does not contain SPF, which should be applied before going outside and topped up as required.
  • If your lips are also in need of some care then you could finish with our Lip Treatment Balm which is filled with hydrating and nourishing plant oils, butters and waxes.
