The Beauty Blog Me – and it begins

Hello to you reader, Allow me to introduce myself. I am 20 –something girl passionately in love with all things pretty, perky, pink and girly. For me the blogging journey began 2 years back when I began blogging for a beauty and skincare website. Initially it started off as making some extra money while at university, however that later transitioned into a deep rooted passion for learning, discovering and writing. I began writing blogs on several different topics, from hair care, skincare and skin problems to product reviews, product ingredients and so much. As I kept writing on, I learnt SO much about skin care and associated topics that I began to feel like an expert. Though I’m not a certified anything in the medical field, in fact I am a public relations executive by profession, I gained a deep and insightful understanding of the know how’s of beauty and skin care.

Taking another step into the journey ahead, I have bought into a being my very own baby ‘The beauty blog me’. A platform through which I aim to share everything that I have learnt in the last few years about being beautiful skin deep. Living in a city like Dubai with its constantly changing weather we are all faced with our share of skin issues.  The Beauty Blog me will help you deal with almost everything. From identifying the problem to giving you the solutions and recommending the best products in town, the beauty blog me is one to watch out for.

Follow, share, comment, and spread the word, the journey has just begun!

Do you have sensitive Skin?

Do you experience redness, burning or tingling after applying certain skin care products? Does you skin feel dry, scaly or itchy in certain environments? Do you often get hives and other irritations?

 If your answer is yes to any of these questions then you might have sensitive skin. And if you have ever been diagnosed with acne, rosacea, contact dermatitis or eczema then you are certainly a sensitive type. The good news is that if treated properly, sensitive skin is just as beautiful as any other type of skin out there.

Dealing with Sensitive Skin

Some of the typical symptoms you would experience if you have sensitive skin are redness, itching, burning and dryness. Listed below are some of the common triggers and best tips from our experts.

  • Always choose gentle products and avoid skin irritants. We recommend using the ones specifically formulated for sensitive skin. Be on the lookout for artificial fragrances, SD alcohol, PABA, harsh scrubs as well as high concentrations of benzoyl peroxide and glycolic acid. A smart choice would be to pick non-comedogenic products.
  • Consider taking vitamins C, E, A, B and K. Some studies suggest that these vitamins can improve skin health.
  • Water is your friend, drink it and alongside eat a healthy balanced diet. People who are exhausted and tensed are more likely to be among those with sensitive skin. So make sure to get good sleep and combat stress
  • Do not use too many products at once as it can lead us to believe our skin is sensitive when, in actuality, it’s merely overwhelmed. Also do not try to too many new products at the same time.
  • Spot test products on your wrist 24 hours before trying it out on your face.
  • Change you skin care plan according to the weather. Environmental factors, like ultraviolet light, wind, heat, cold, pollution and humidity can wreak havoc on your skin.
  • Avoid using harsh abrasives like loofahs and body scrubs as it can be irritating for those with a sensitive skin. If you do use facial scrubs then try not to use more than twice a week.

Finding the right skin care products to meet your individual needs can be tricky and will likely involve a lot of trial and error. It’s best to try a variety of products to identify what suits your skin best.
