Should Your Skincare Products Sting? How To Tell The Good From Bad

by Shanda Prasad 17 Feb 2023

When it comes to skincare, it is possible to experience stinging after applying certain products. We will look deeper into the concept of stinging in skin care and provide you with the required knowledge to make smart judgments when it comes to a skincare regimen to help you understand what stinging is and evaluate if it is good or bad for the skin. 

What exactly "Stinging" is? 

When applying various skincare products to your skin, you may experience stinging, tingling, or burning sensations. This might be due to the presence of alcohol or other irritants, or it could be due to a single ingredient. It is important to note that this sensation can occur in persons of all skin types, from those with sensitive skin to those with normal skin. 

Good and Bad Stinging 

Let's discuss the good and bad stinging. For example, some ingredients, like alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), sometimes cause a mild stinging sensation. This is because they are working to remove dead skin cells, which can eventually lead to smoother and clearer skin. In this case, the stinging is considered good and usually subsides shortly after use. 

Besides, bad stinging is just that: evil.  If you feel an intense burn or sting that persists for a long time, that is not normal. This could be a sign of an allergic reaction or sensitivity to one of the product's ingredients. If you experience severe stinging, you should immediately stop using the product and visit a dermatologist. 

Try YaloFiji's Body Lotion (Noni-Activated) 

If you're seeking a skincare product that won't cause stinging, YaloFiji's Body Lotion is an excellent option to consider. This luxurious lotion is formulated with noni fruit extract, a powerful antioxidant with a rich history in Polynesian skincare. It contains 100% pure and natural Fijian botanical oils known for their beautiful aroma and skin benefits, making it an ideal choice for people with sensitive skin who want to improve their skin's look and feel without any discomfort. 

How to Tell the Difference

So, how can you differentiate between good and bad stinging?

Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Look at the ingredients: If the product has a high concentration of alcohol or other harmful ingredients, it may cause stinging. Check the label or conduct some research on the ingredients to see whether they are known to irritate the skin.
  • Consider your skin type: If you have sensitive skin, you may be more prone to stinging. however, If you have normal or oily skin, you may be less prone to encounter it.
  • Pay attention to the duration of stinging: Good stinging should only remain a short time after application, however bad stinging may persist for a prolonged period.
  • Consult a dermatologist: You should consult a dermatologist if you are experiencing severe stinging or are unsure about the stinging. They may assist you in determining the root cause and recommending a plan of action. 

Knowing the difference between good and bad stinging in skin care is essential for managing the appearance and health of your skin. By examining the ingredients, severity, and duration of stinging, you can make smart judgments about your skin care regimen and confidently pick products that are suitable for your skin. Consider YaloFiji's Body Lotion which is Noni activated as a potential solution for individuals with sensitive skin who desire a skincare product that won't cause stinging.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
