People often need guidance and detailed advice on how to best manage their skin. This website aims to provide comprehensive advice and covers most aspects on living with sensitive skin. Aru Borage Cream or Oil should be applied to the affected areas at least four times per day and most people will benefit from taking one teaspoon of Borage Oil orally per day.
Sensitivity Check Points - If you have very sensitive hands, you may find that even picking up a packet of washing powder in the supermarket can irritate your skin.
Before using any new product, it is important to patch test it over a period of 24 hours on an area of affected skin to ensure that you are not allergic to it.
Generally protect your hands with cotton gloves, available from chemists. Industrial workers are vulnerable to chemicals – e.g. cement dust.
Clothes and Fabrics
Man-made fibers are irritating to sensitive skin and should be avoided. People with sensitive skin should try to stick to natural fibers such as cotton. Also avoid wool at this time, as the lanolin in wool is very irritating to even slightly sensitive skin. Ensure that new clothes and linen are thoroughly washed and rinsed before using them.
