Skin Care Strategies for Lupus Warriors: Nurturing Your Skin Amidst Challenges

If you have lupus or any other autoimmune condition, taking care of your skin is essential. Often lupus causes heightened sensitivity to sunlight and can also develop skin rashes and lesions. It's also essential to be mindful of the ingredients in your makeup products. Certain ingredients may trigger or worsen symptoms, lead to skin irritation, or cause other adverse reactions.

Skincare Routine + Tips

Here are some tips to help you look after your skin if you have Lupus as well as some ingredients to avoid:

SUN PROTECTION
Sun exposure can trigger lupus flare-ups, so it's crucial to protect your skin from the sun. Whenever you go outside, wear protective clothing, Use broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. Both our SkinCare Cover Foundation and Purely Tinted Moisturizer contain non-chemical sunscreen that provides protection from harmful rays. Use them on top of your sunscreen for coverage and added protection.

ENVIROMENTAL PROTECTION
Some individuals with lupus are sensitive to indoor lighting as well; Our SkinCare Cover Foundation or our Purely Tinted Moisturizer provide environmental protection and can create a barrier that will safeguard your skin.

GENTLE SAFEGUARD ROUTINE
Choose gentle, skincare products that are suitable for sensitive skin. Avoid harsh chemicals and exfoliants. Our Hawaiian Foaming Cleanser has been specifically formulated with plant-powered ingredients for those with allergies or skin concerns such as burns, eczema, psoriasis, and rashes in mind and is therefore very gentle on the skin.

MOISTURIZE
Keep your skin hydrated. This can help reduce dryness and flakiness that are caused by the medication. Our Island Moisture Creme is formulated with key ingredients such as Aloe Leaf Juice, Lavender Oil, Lemon Oil, Glycerine, Coconut Fatty Acids, and Sweet Mandarin Peel to feed and nourish the skin.

BATHING
Bathe in lukewarm water. Avoid hot water, as it can dry out your skin further.

FRAGRANCES
Fragrances are a common cause of skin irritation and can cause symptoms in individuals with lupus or sensitive skin. Our entire product line is fragrance-free.

PARABENS
preservatives used in many cosmetics, but they can be disruptive to the endocrine system and may affect hormone balance, which can be problematic for people with lupus. Our entire product line is paraben-free.

HEAVY METALS
Avoid products that contain heavy metals like lead, and mercury, as they can be harmful to anyone, but particularly problematic for individuals with autoimmune conditions.

HARSH CHEMICALS
Makeup products with harsh chemicals, such as formaldehyde, toluene, and ammonia, should be avoided as they can irritate the skin.

BISMUTH OXYCHLORIDE
This ingredient is often found in mineral makeup and can trigger skin irritation in some people, including those with lupus.

It's important to note that everyone's skin is different, and while these ingredients may be problematic for some people with lupus, others may not experience any issues.
