Sensitive skin is an increasingly common skin condition experienced by many. This is thanks to the more stressful lives many of us lead in addition to the increase in environmental pollutants that act to weaken our skin’s natural barrier. Sensitivity is often characterised by the skin turning red and irritated at the slightest change in environment or skincare. Though it is endlessly frustrating to deal with, let Porcelain Skin unearth its root causes and discover ways to manage our sensitivity.

What is Sensitive Skin?

Before we delve into how we can manage our sensitive skin, let us first understand the root of the problem.

There are generally two types of sensitive skin: Sensitive skin vs Sensitised skin. While both share the same symptoms and appearance, they are each a result of different factors.

Sensitive skin is a condition that is part of your DNA and often comes paired with other skin conditions like Eczema, Dermatitis and Rosacea. This form of sensitivity is often experienced from a young age and usually can be triggered by environmental changes (i.e. temperature). This sensitivity requires products and treatments that work to strengthen the skin’s inherently weak barrier to reduce reactiveness.

Sensitised skin shares the same visible symptoms as sensitive skin (redness, inflammation, reactiveness) but often is a result of poor products and improper usage that lead to a weakened natural barrier. The improper use often results in damage to the outermost layer of the skin. This weakened barrier inhibits the skin’s natural ability to defend itself against environmental aggressors like free radicals and pollutants. All in all, it makes the skin more reactive to skincare products. Unlike sensitive skin, sensitised skin is easier to manage – once the skin’s natural barrier is restored, the sensitivity experienced will drastically decrease.

How to Manage Your Sensitivity

Now that we understand the root differences between sensitive and sensitised skin, let’s work towards establishing a skincare routine that works to minimise it!

1. Balance Your pH:

Your skin’s pH determines the strength of its natural barrier. An optimal pH would be between 5.5 to 6. However, not everyone has a proper pH testing kit at home. Thus, we use our skin types as an indicator instead. This is because our natural barrier thrives when there is an optimal balance of oil and water content in the skin. Any imbalances would be revealed through the skin’s type and symptoms. For example, oily skin types have an imbalance in their pH thanks to the over-production of sebum to compensate for a lack of hydration. Sebum is your skin’s way of retaining moisture and hydration. When there is a lack of hydration, the skin produces more oils to prevent further loss of hydration.

Therefore, to minimise the reactiveness of your skin, you to determine your skin’s pH through your skin type. Not sure which skin type you have? Grab a tissue and find out here.

Once you have discovered your skin type, it is time to work on rebalancing your skin pH.

Oily Skin:

As mentioned earlier in the example, your skin over-produces sebum to compensate for a lack of hydration. Thus, focus on rehydrating the skin and controlling oil production with these products:

Balance Sebum Control Essence:
With a high percentage of Sodium Hyaluronate, Horse Chestnut Extract and Tea Tree Extract, excess sebum production is well controlled whilst skin remains deeply hydrated. This treatment essence also has effective anti-inflammation, rejuvenation and repairing properties to help reduce redness and itching for sensitive and sensitised skin.

Balance Hydraclear Gel:
This clear and weightless gel works hard to balance the skin and keep it healthy. Combating bacterial growth, reducing inflammation, hydrating, and regulating sebum & skin pH levels, this gel is specially formulated to providing moisture to the skin while balancing its pH levels.

Dry Skin:

Dry skin’s imbalance lies in an under-production of sebum. Since sebum is your skin’s way of retaining moisture and hydration, a lack of it causes your skin to experience a lot of hydration and moisture loss.  

Thus, focus on moisturising and hydrating your skin with these products:

Soothe Deep Hydrating Lotion:
A concoction of natural Jojoba Seed and Rose oils, Vitamin E and B5, Sodium Hyaluronate and Hyaluronic Acid, this lotion deeply hydrates, moisturises, and stimulates regeneration in our skin. Damascena Rose extracts also help deeply hydrate the skin and improve its natural resilience.

Pure Botanical Soothing Gel: Made from a special blend of Aloe Vera and herbal extracts such as Peach, Peony, Yoshino Cherry and Mountain Pepper. This anti-inflammatory, healing gel is rich in antioxidants, moisture and offers extra anti-bacterial benefits. Effectively treating skin that is dry, irritated, acne-prone, or suffering from eczema and/or other skin problems.

Combination Skin:

Combination skin often requires a more tailored approach as there are often two different imbalances existing on the skin simultaneously. Though it may seem cumbersome to tackle two imbalances on top of the sensitivity, simply hydrating the skin deals with a commonality between the two imbalances.

Soothe Aloe Recovery Gel: Formulated with pure Aloe Vera Extract, this gel moisturises provides intense hydration to heal dry and stressed skin. Not only does it repair skin, it also increases skin’s resilience over time. Our use of stabilized aloe vera gel helps extend the benefits of aloe vera for ongoing results. This restorative gel is also suitable for even sensitive skin and any epidermal ills ranging from blemishes to open wounds after dermatological procedures.

Bonus Product for All Skin Types:

Soothe Botanical Sensitive Care Toner:
Formulated with medicinal herbs like Korean Mint, Honeysuckle Flower Extract and Chamomile Flower Extract, this gentle toner possesses strong anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. Experience soothed, moisturised and more resilient skin with each use.

2. Look Out for These Ingredients

For both sensitive and sensitised skin, there are a handful of skincare ingredients to look for as they help the skin strengthen its natural barrier. Additionally, there is another handful of ingredients to avoid as they have track records of irritating the skin.

To Look For:

Ceramides: This ingredient is a lipid that is naturally found in high concentrations in the uppermost layers of the skin. They act as the glue that holds your skin cells together. They also form a protective layer that controls moisture loss and protects against environmental aggressors.

Allantoin: Extracted from the Comfrey plant, Allantoin helps to soothe and protect the skin. It helps the skin heal and stimulates new tissue growth. Plus, it softens and helps to protect the skin over time.

Niacinamide: Known as Vitamin B3, it works to strengthen the skin’s surface while improving skin tone, minimising pores and diminishing dullness. Additionally, when paired with moisturisers, it can boost the skin’s healing ability and retain greater moisture.

Apart from the good stuff, keep an eye out for these known irritants.

To Avoid:

Drying Alcohols: Though not all alcohols are bad for the skin, drying alcohols are as they cause the skin to be dry and more sensitive. Drying alcohols include SD alcohol, ethanol, denatured alcohol, ethyl alcohol and isopropyl alcohol.

Phthalates & Fragrances: Several Phthalates DEHP & DBP have been classified as a reproductive toxicant by the European Chemical Agency.  Additionally, they are common components in synthetic fragrances found in products. Synthetic fragrances are known to sensitise the skin over time. Furthermore, it is not a requirement for brands to list the individual ingredients that make up fragrances, making them an unknown danger.

3. Treatments are Your Friends

Often when products are insufficient, and your sensitivity requires more, facial treatments are the best way to go. While not every treatment may suit you, look for ones that focus on stimulating the skin’s natural healing process and aid in its repair.

Created with a three-pronged approach of calming, repairing and hydrating to provide restorative care, the Sun Rescue Treatment is the perfect option for reducing the skin’s sensitivity. Contrary to its name, you do not need to be sun damaged to experience the soothing ability of this treatment. It’s combination of Oxygen and Cryo-therapies gently calms the skin, stimulates its repair, shortens recovery time and boosts skin resilience.

Here’s the cold, hard truth: The answer is yes! For the uninitiated and worried mothers out there, pregnancy facials are possible.

Pregnant women probably need them more than before they got themselves with child — why, hello there, yet another triple-zit-on-my-nose. Where’s that glow everyone talks about? You aren’t alone; many mothers find themselves privy to acne, dry flaky skin, sensitivity, amongst other unwelcome guests — instead of the elusive, legendary radiance.

However, remember to play by the rules of the game to ensure your baby (and you) are safe during this highly hormonal period. 

Pregnancy Facials - Can I Get One With That Bump? | Pregnancy Diaries

GENERAL RULES OF THUMB SO PREGNANCY FACIALS DON’T BECOME PREGNANCY FAILS

  • Don’t raise your core body temperature above 38.9°C. You don’t want your body to trap heat and become an oven… research has shown that raising the internal core temperature too high during the first trimester can result in birth defects
  • ALWAYS tell your therapist that you are pregnant when making the appointment, especially if it’s your first pregnancy facial; this helps them modify the steps as necessary so they don’t get charged with babyslaughter

NOW, THE PREGNANCY FACIALS YOU CAN DO

No bells, whistles, or frills where these are related. In other words: stick to the basics. Gentle, hydrating facials are the safest bets and can deliver much-needed moisture and confidence boosts.

1. Facials That Were Specifically Made For You
Customized and thus perfect for pregnant women, period (no more).

How could we say facials are suitable for pregnant women without first designing one specifically for you? Sometimes, pregnant women need just a little bit of downtime or a reminder that they still deserve to and can pamper themselves. Given the hormonal imbalance and resulting epidermal antagonists, you just want to fix them. You just want your un-saggy skin back. You just want some peace.

Doesn’t some oxygen therapy with a Shiatsu facial massage sound wonderfully oasis-like?

Treatments to try: RestorativeTM. Me-time, confidence and brighter, water retention-free skin.

2. Oxygen Facials
Especially great for dry and dull skin

Oxygen is a really powerful thing. When your skin is tired, dull and lifeless, it’s there to pull you back from the edge. This miracle gas heals by boosting cellular regeneration and blood circulation. The faster your new cells replace the old ones, the younger your skin looks. This super gentle facial can also clear your pores so it can absorb moisture more. Voila, you’re as close to a pregnancy glow as you can get / you just amped on that radiance you have (you lucky thing, you).

P.S. It’s also anti-bacterial (meaning it can help with your acne) and anti-aging (it plumps out fine lines and wrinkles)!

Treatments to try: OxyReviveTM. Glow-ier, brighter skin awaits.

3. Hydrating Facials
Again, especially great for dry and dull skin

Dry skin can really become the bane of your existence when it seems to flake beyond repair (to your despair). Your body is constantly transferring water to the little one inside while leaving you dehydrated and cranky. Dehydration can exacerbate oily skin conditions (the irony), acne and even pigmentation. Keeping it hydrated and healthy, on the contrary, can increase your resistance to the sun’s damaging effects, pollution and free radicals.

Pair your power-packed hyaluronic acid serum with an intensive hydrating facial to quench your skin’s thirst and heal it to a softer, suppler complexion.

Treatments to try: Sun RescueTM. Happier, more hydrated skin lies ahead. 

4. LED Light Therapy
Brilliant for acneic and distressed skin. And yes, generally safe for pregnant mamas 

Pregnancy Facials - LED light therapy is great for distressed, acneic skin

Credit: Anderson Guerra

To make things clear, LED light therapy is non-invasive and targets only the upper layers of the skin. It doesn’t damage your skin tissues but rather, triggers natural biochemical reactions similar to photo-synthesis.

In other words, your baby is safe.

Blue light targets acne-causing bacteria and simply minimizes / brings breakouts to a standstill. Red light, another commonly-used frequency, boosts collagen production, reduces inflammation and lessens redness and irritation.

Leave your frustration with acne bouts and sensitive, inflamed skin at the door. LED light therapy is a multi-talented weapon against acne, wrinkles, dullness and inflamed skin. Depending on the light frequency, it can be used for anything from boosting tissue growth to stimulating collagen production and regeneration.

Kind of a superhero like oxygen.

Treatments to try: Pick Me Up. Rejuvenated skin is just 30 minutes away.

AND, THE STUFF YOU CANNOT DO

As we said — no bells, no whistles. Refrain from fancy stuff like:

  1. Electric currents
  2. Chemical peels – The skin is super sensitive and easily irritated during pregnancy
  3. Microdermabrasions – These will likely scar your extra-sensitive skin and aggravate breakouts.
  4. Extractions – Or, if really, really necessary, ask your therapist to be really gentle with your sensitive skin
  5. Plastic surgery

Not just slayers of skin woes, pregnancy facials can also really lift your mood. You deserve it. Go for it.

Everyone talks about the pregnancy glow. Less talked about are the nasties: Zits like back when you were in high school. Dry, flaky skin even when you don’t usually have dry, flaky skin. Days out on the beach are days long gone because — is that another dark mark on your face? We ask you to calm down though — these are all perfectly normal pregnancy skincare skintuations that many women like you face… and there are remedies.

Pregnancy Skincare: 5 Woes, 5 Tips | Pregnancy Diaries

PREGNANCY SKINCARE WOE #1: ACNE
(WHEN I WAS 13, I HAD MY FIRST LOVE ZIT)

Being a teenager was nothing without bouts of breakouts… but when you’re 30 and pregnant? You might almost wish you weren’t having a baby bump. Pregnancy hormones can send your oil glands into overdrive, creating a breeding ground for acne. Worse, androgen (a male sex hormone) increases during pregnancy, further increasing sebum production, clogging, blackheads and finally, pimples.

The cruellest joke ever? The acne products you used to use are unsafe while you’re pregnant because of the chemicals. Minocycline, doxycycline, tetracycline and Accutane, are definitely no-gos as they can cause birth defects.  Then, it’s best to stay away from ingredients like benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid too, since these can enter the bloodstream. Most products are not actually pregnancy-tested…

But it’s not all doom and gloom. Your skin will most likely clear up after pregnancy. In the meantime, here are some quick tips.

Skin Hacks: DON’T SQUEEZE. DON’T PICK. DON’T TOUCH. Opt for ingredients like lactic acid, tea tree oil or sulfur. See a doctor if you’re really sick of the acne that seems persistent and widespread. Instead, cleanse face with a mild, hydrating cleanser. If necessary, use steam to clear clogged pores. Look for non-comedogenic / water-based skincare products as these don’t aggravate oily, acneic skin. Also, contrary to popular belief, you CAN go for facials while pregnant — watch out for the next Nanny Princess Pregnancy Diaries post on this! 

PREGNANCY SKINCARE WOE #2: DRY SKIN

Damned hormones. Where you once had smooth, glowing skin, you’re now left with a dryness that doesn’t seem to stop itching.

Why?

It’s really many factors that play a part: More moisture is channelled to care for your baby, thus leaving you high and dry. With the little one inside you, your body temperature also tends to rise, thus literally getting you more hot-headed, stressed and itchy, thus triggering dry skin.

And the biggest contender (again): hormones. Oddly, those can’t seem to make up their mind between producing too much or too little sebum. Too little oil? You’re facing dryness and decreased elasticity. Too much? What else to do but to keep washing your face, right? Wrong. Washing your face too frequently can actually dehydrate the skin even more.

Skin Hacks: Water — lots of it. Aim for 12 cups a day. Hydrating lotions for milder cases; prescription treatments for severe ones. Warm (not hot!), comforting showers (and oatmeal baths, we hear) work wonders to calm your spirits and skin but don’t spend too long in there or your natural oils will start depleting. Get a humidifier for the bedroom. And our final, favourite trick: Get a high-grade, ultra-hydrating serum loaded with hyaluronic acid to quench your skin’s thirst.

 

 

PREGNANCY SKINCARE WOE #3: INCREASED SENSITIVITY
(YOUR SKIN IS BEING A BIGGER BABY THAN THE ACTUAL BABY)

As if acne and dry skin weren’t painful enough, your skin might be literally… in pain. The usual facials you go for might verge on painful, your face seems to get red more easily when you’re exfoliating, and your favourite scented lotion is now sitting on its lonesome on your dresser. Your skin is being a total baby.

Why?

… You guessed it. Hormones.

Skin Hacks: Gentle is the name of the game. Swap out scrubs (both for the face and body) for a loofah or a soft, textured washcloth. Switching to unscented / natural lotions and body washes could also help. Apply calamine lotion on itchy spots. Shun products that are heavy with additives, dyes, and / or fragrances, all of which can exacerbate the situation. When in doubt, always check in with your dermatologist, pharmacist or doctor.


“You certainly don’t want anything causing micro-tears on your skin… the more cuts and wounds on your skin, the easier it is for chemicals to be absorbed into your bloodstream. Ingredients to stay away from in soaps and body washes include triclosan, parabens and fragrance.”
| Melissa Schweiger, coauthor of Belli Beautiful: The Essential Guide to the Safest Health and Beauty Products for Pregnancy, Mom, and Baby

PREGNANCY SKINCARE WOE #4: (HYPER)PIGMENTATION
(AKA ITS SUPERHERO ALIAS, THE MASK OF PREGNANCY)

Aside from causing hormones to go a little (a lot?) out of whack, pregnancy also increases melanin production. Melanin is responsible for darkening of the skin, and you might be victim to dark patches.

The sun you used to love? That love might be long gone at this point. But it won’t be for ever… the melasma (another name for this pigmentation conundrum) usually fades after pregnancy.

Skin Hacks: If you weren’t religious about sunscreen before, it’s time to start now. An SPF of at least 25 to 30 would do half the trick; the other half would be for you to stay indoors as much as possible to reduce sun exposure. Physical and mineral sunblocks are your safest bets, as chemical sunscreens can irritate your sensitive skin + have potential risks. In more specific words, opt for protection that comes with titanium dioxide or zinc oxide.

PREGNANCY SKINCARE WOE #5: STRETCH MARKS
(YOU TIGRESS WHO BROUGHT LIFE TO THIS WORLD)

Pregnancy Skincare Woe #5: Stretch Marks

Credit: Chayene Rafaela

A good 50 – 90% of women get these in pregnancy. It isn’t curious—anytime a body grows at a rate at which the body can’t keep up with, these tiger stripes appear. These tend to come fastest in the final trimester when your baby grows the most.


“For most people, whether or not they get stretch marks has to do with genetic predisposition.”
| Glenn Kolansky, MD, a board-certified dermatologist

While there isn’t much you can do to prevent it, there are ways to reduce the risks of developing them (too much), including controlling your weight. Staying hydrated (at least 12 cups of water a day), and eating a healthy and balanced diet (think antioxidants, vitamins, leafies, fatty acids).

Skin Hacks: Thoroughly moisturize, especially areas which are most prone to these marks. These include your belly, boobs, stomach, hips and thighs.

Dry Skin Vs Dehydrated Skin – 3 Quick Tips | #SkinHacks

There, we’ve said it. The HA+ Hydrating Serum is the first of Porcelain’s new Intensive line of products, and we made it for the clients who inspired us to curate amazing ingredients into four specific complexes. Four, to help clients from all walks of life enjoy a hydrating serum that would be suitable for any skin type, any age, and any climate. But it took two years before we were ready to unveil it to the world.

The serum was first launched internally — as with any other product we have to ensure it works – before being sold in-store. Like Pauline said during our media launch just the 3rd of May, we run a tight ship with our products.

“Does this product deserve a space on your shelf?” 

We took two years to be able to say, hell yeah!

So here’s the story we wanted to share that we feel is more important than any blow-by-blow sales talk. Because hey, you can read that here. Instead, let’s talk about the story behind the HA+ Hydrating Serum. 

And that’s really our clients’ stories that we’re sharing. Every day, our clients talk to us. It goes beyond “How’s your day?” – beyond skin deep. Many tell us they have oily skin (but they’re really just dehydrated). A few struggle with how to properly moisturize dry skin.  The ultimate question that triggers our brainstorming frenzy:

“I can’t find anything out there that works for me; do you have a solution?”

The truth is, there are many incredible products out there with great anti-ageing benefits, or hydration, or acne control. And that was when it hit us – the keyword is “or”. There is a plethora of products in the market that specifically focus on just one or two main skin concerns. For example, there are many rich creams. Plenty that contain hyaluronic acid. Even more with ingredients that help boost collagen levels… But how many anti-ageing products had more benefits than just plumping up wrinkles? How many could be used by certain people that provide the benchmark of it being suitable for anyone and everyone – people with sensitive or even acneic skin?

“What gap are we trying to fill here?”

With that, out popped our latest flagship product, the HA+ Hydrating Serum – specially designed not just for anti-ageing and hydration, but also to combat acne (with good bacteria) and soothe and even heal sensitive skin. A product to fill out all that the “Ors” couldn’t – to fill the gap that our clients helped us realize was there.


To you.

Recently, my skin has gotten very easily irritated and reddish. Is there a way I can make them disappear as quickly as possible?

Two common skin concerns Asians face with our tropical climates are redness and sensitivity. There could be many factors like hormones, a change in climate, excessive laser / chemical peels, etc., but how do we fix it? Aloe Vera is an excellent option but be sure to find stabilised Aloe Vera in high concentrations for maximum benefits. You might also need to update your home-care regime — eliminate products that may contain Retinol (Retin-A), Glycolic Acid, and Sulphates. Last but not least, it’s best to hydrate skin with a non-comedogenic moisturizer.

The fastest fix would be to go for a facial!

Read more about sensitive skin here, and how our signature Sun Rescue treatment is a godsend for such cases. Another option would be Red LED with Oxygen Spray with a Hydrating Concoction. Consider our award-winning OxyRevive treatment.

Is it wise to make those “well known” DIY face masks? Can such masks make any difference at all to our faces?

That’s a relevant question which MTV VJ Hanli brought up as well in our February column!

Using natural ingredients requires proper preparation. There’s a risk of bacterial infection and, in worst-case scenarios, allergies. Professionally-prepared products have the hard work done for you. For example, 60 roses are needed to derive just one drop of rose oil. These then go through various processes to be “transformed” into molecules that the skin can readily absorb. We have treated a case of skin-burn caused by direct application of lemon juice, so we are extremely careful about doling out DIY advice. We reckon finding a skincare specialist whose advice you can trust might be a much better alternative!

We’ve gathered a few more questions and will be posting a dedicated entries over the next week or two. Stay tuned and in the meantime, keep the questions coming! You might walk away with an OxyReviveTM treatment (U.P. $212.93) and our Soothe – Deep Hydrating Lotion (U.P. $69)!

Stay True,
