If you’re allergic to macerations, it’s important to understand the symptoms and how to treat them.
If you have oily skin, the best way to avoid skin irritation and inflammation is to apply a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher.
If the condition has left your skin dry, it can also be helpful to use a moisturizer and moisturizer SPF 15 or higher to prevent the growth of breakouts.
To find out how to prevent macerating skin, read on.
If your skin is oily, then the first thing you should do is remove your makeup.
Use a gentle cleanser or water based moisturizer with a SPF of 15 or lower to minimize your skin’s sensitivity to sunlight.
After that, use a sunscreen to minimize any irritation or dryness.
If possible, use an oil-based sunscreen with a UV protection factor of 50 or higher, as oil-free sunscreens can also damage the lining of your pores and lead to acne.
To prevent macarated skin from developing further, apply a moisturizing oil- or SPF-containing moisturizer to your face, neck, hands and underarms.
Follow-up care After you’ve finished using a sunscreen, follow up with a facial or body wash with a sunscreen SPF at least as high as the one you applied to your skin.
Some brands of makeup remover can be applied to dry skin or acne prone areas, so check to see if they’re safe.
If it’s too hot or cold for you, a facial mask or facial spray can also help.
For sensitive skin, try a sunscreen-free sunscreen such as a SPH3 or SPH5.
To make sure you’re applying the correct sunscreen to your whole face, apply the sunscreen to each eye, cheeks, forehead and neck, and then use a cleanser and a moisturiser SPF 25 or higher in each spot to minimize the skin’s irritation.
It’s also important to avoid any contact lens use, as it can lead to breakouts and breakouts of any type.
A few tips for applying a sunscreen in the evening and after your shower: If you plan to wear a sunscreen while driving, wear a full-face sunscreen (SPF 30+) as part of your protective layers and stay out of the sun.
If driving in the middle of the night, wear an outer layer over your sunscreen (no makeup).
If you need to wear makeup while out in public, wear makeup-free clothing.
