Stop being so sensitive. Wait, hold on. That was not directed at you. We’re talking to your skin. Your borderline explosive skin to be specific. Usually raw, patchy skin is the sad outcome of smoky exhaust, over-washing your skin, sunburn, or even something as recurrent as daily stress. That said, we’ve come up with a few phenomenal solutions and solutions to sober downangry aka irritated skin. Presenting five gentle yet effective products that’s earned our ultimate seal of approval. Consider this a curated anger management checklist for fussy skin. Confession. It works faster than therapy.
1. WE GEL WELL
With the inrush of new products coming out at a rapid rate, it can be difficult to decipher which ones really live up to their claims. If you’re someone who fancies a gel to treat aggravated skin, we’d put our money on The Face Shop Jeju Aloe Fresh Soothing Gel.
Born from the exotic Jeju Island in South Korea, this ultra-gentle formula is fortified with plush Aloe to keep itching and redness at bay.
2. LOTIONS & POTIONS
If you still don’t have a Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion
in your medicine cabinet, we’re judging you. This non-greasy, drugstore lotion is dedicated solely to soften your skin sheet without interrupting its natural protective barrier. Slather on from head to toe right before you start your day and it shall protect you from the daily irritants. Best part? This classic, unembellished facial and body formula is un-scented so it won't compete with your fragrance.
3. SO MUCH BUTTER
For the many who fancy slathering on body butter post a shower (while listening to Frank Sinatra on repeat), there are plenty others who will only use one when they start spotting dry patches. We suggest you regularize this step, tbh. Our current obsession is got to be the The Body Shop Almond Milk & Honey Soothing & Restoring Body Butter
for a whopping 48-hour hydration and protection. Whipped with organic Almond Milk and Honey, blotchy skin does not stand a chance.
4. DO YOU HAVE PROTECTION?
For a non-irritating face sunscreen that suits even for the most sensitive skin, we turn to the Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Dry Touch Sunscreen SPF50+.
Certain SPF ingredients can cause itching, tingling, and inflammatory stubborn rashes. Not this award-winning formula though. If you have eczema, this mineral-based sunscreen is your man. Also, it gives you a matte finish without any irritation or ghostly white cast. Amen to that.
5. A RASH DECISION
For those who’re still wondering what ‘Chafing’ really means, it’s a common skin problem caused by a combination of friction, moisture, and irritating fabric. If you’ve been a victim to the rolling dilemma, the Sirona Natural Anti Chafing Rash Cream
is sure to sort you out (thigh chafing be the worst, right?). It also comes with a deep cleaning pack to help clean out all the dead skin cells and impurities from your skin. Oh, you can share this with your man too. Just hand it over to him and say nothing. He’ll thank you.
We certainly hope that these potent skin elixirs work their magic on you just like it did on us. Our prophecy? This ‘anger management checklist’ as we’d like to call it (proudly so) might just put an end to angry skin once and for all. Half glass full, right?
