A Guide to Sensitive Skincare in Scotland - White Rabbit Skin Care

A Guide to Sensitive Skincare in Scotland

Scotland is an amazing country, but it can be a difficult place to live for those with sensory skin. Harsh weather and busy cities can have effects that leave your skin feeling irritated, red, and uncomfortable. 

That’s why White Rabbit Skincare is here to help guide you through the delightful world of sensitive skincare so that you can achieve a calm, healthy glow even in Scotland!

Understanding Your Sensitive Skin

First things first, let's explore what makes skin "sensitive." Unlike other skin types, sensitive skin has a weakened barrier, making it more prone to:

  • Irritation: This can manifest as redness, stinging, or burning after using certain products or encountering environmental triggers.
  • Dryness: A compromised barrier can lead to moisture loss, resulting in flaky, tight, and uncomfortable skin.
  • Inflammation: This can show up as redness, puffiness, and even papules or pustules.

To build a gentle routine, consider the following:

Cleanse with care: Ditch harsh soaps and opt for gentle, fragrance-free cleansers. Look for ingredients like ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and oat milk, which nourish and soothe.

Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise: This is key for restoring and strengthening the skin barrier. Hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and squalane are your hydrating heroes.

Sunscreen is non-negotiable: Even sensitive skin needs protection from the sun's harmful rays. Opt for broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher with mineral filters like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.

Less is more: Resist the urge to layer multiple products at once. Start with a simple routine and gradually introduce new products, one at a time, to see how your skin reacts.

Combating Skin Challenges in Scotland

Living in Scotland comes with its own set of challenges for those with sensitive skin, but there are ways to combat them!

  • Wind and rain: Keep a hydrating mist handy to refresh and soothe throughout the day.
  • Harsh weather: Apply a thicker moisturiser in winter and a lightweight one in summer.
  • Pollution: Look for products with antioxidants like green tea and vitamin C to combat free radical damage.
