5 Steps To 'Reset' Your Skin If It's Irritated, Red Or Stressed

Your skin is the largest internal organ and the body's first defense against outside harm. But do you know it may become swollen, red, and stressed due to pollutants, abrasive skincare products, and changing weather conditions? However, with the right steps you can rejuvenate your overburdened skin and get back that lost glow. So, here are listed five simple skincare measures to help review your skin.

Step 1. Simplify Skincare

Step 1. Simplify Skincare 

Multiple-step skin care regimens are undesirable as they stress and sore your skin. Overloading your skin with too many active components from numerous products can aggravate this issue further. Therefore, it is always beneficial to simplify your skincare routine. This helps in reducing inflammation and gives your skin time to heal. Stick to the basics like a gentle cleanser, moisturising lotion, and sunscreen, significantly improving the skin's appearance.

Step 2: Gentle Cleansers

Cleansing is important in any skincare routine, especially for sensitive and stressed skin. Harsh soaps can strip away the skin's natural oils, making it dull, dry, and irritated. Choose a gentle, hydrating face wash that cleanses without harming the skin's barrier.

Pick a mild or moisturizing cleanser. Cleanse your face twice a day and be gentle while doing it. Use lukewarm water because hot water can damage the skin and worsen pimples. After washing, gently pat your face dry with a towel instead of rubbing it. Consider using our Micellar Facial Wash. This facewash removes dirt and prevents moisture loss. The Pentavitin provides deep hydration and Panthenol softens and smoothens your skin.

Step 3: Soothe and Hydrate 

Hydrating your skin is essential for soothing stressed skin. Irritated skin usually means the skin barrier isn't working properly. Keep your skin well-hydrated with plenty of water and hydrating ingredients to fix this. Choose a serum and moisturiser that are right for your skin type. Also, applying moisturiser to slightly damp skin improves absorption, helping the product penetrate deeper into your skin. Use our Hydrating Light Moisturiser, which provides all-day hydration. It is enriched with Borage Seed Oil, Pro-Vitamin B5, and Vitamin E. It gets easily absorbed in your skin and has a non-greasy texture.

Step 4: Skin Barrier Protection 

The skin's outermost layer, the skin barrier, helps retain moisture and shield against environmental hazards. When the barrier is compromised, the skin is more sensitive to irritation and stress. Protecting and rebuilding the barrier is essential to effectively reset the skin. Try Simple Active Skin Barrier Care Soothing Water Crème. It has 15% skin conditioners and organic Aloe Vera that soothes your skin and supports skin barrier health.

Over-exfoliating might harm the skin barrier and lead to redness and discomfort. While exfoliation removes dead skin cells, it should be done in moderation. It is advisable to consistently use sunscreen with a high SPF to ensure your skin is protected from further damage.

Step 5: Healthy Diet and Hydration  

While other skincare factors are important, you need to focus on your body in general. Consider eating healthy foods like vegetables, fruits etc. Additionally, keep yourself hydrated by drinking enough water daily.


In conclusion, streamlining your skincare regimen, utilising mild and moisturising products, maintaining your skin barrier, and giving your skin a rest may reset irritated, red, or stressed skin. Follow these steps to restore your skin's balance and radiance. Be consistent and patient to notice benefits, and always care for your skin gently.
