If you are one of those who suffer from skin sensitivity, you know how challenging it can be to find products that don't irritate your skin.
More than 71% of adults say they have sensitive skin, and it's becoming increasingly common. But what does having sensitive skin mean, and how does it manifest?
In this blog, we will discuss what sensitive skin is, what causes it, and how to care for it. We will also introduce some tips on how to treat sensitive skin, particularly using our Skin Health Heroes Sensitive Skin bundle.
Sensitive Skin: Understanding It
Sensitive skin is characterised by heightened reactivity to external factors, such as environmental irritants, fragrances, and even certain fabrics. It can manifest as redness, itching, dryness, or a rash. People with sensitive skin often experience discomfort or pain when using certain skincare products or makeup.
What Causes Sensitive Skin?
Sensitive skin can be hereditary, but several external factors can also trigger it, such as over-exfoliation, abrupt weather changes, and contact with harsh chemicals or fabrics.
Additionally, medical conditions such as rosacea, psoriasis, or eczema can also cause skin sensitivity.
Caring for Sensitive Skin
If you have sensitive skin, it's essential to take extra care of your skin to prevent triggering a reaction. Here are some tips to consider:
- Opt for products with allergen-free fragrances: Fragrances are one of the most common irritants and are frequently found in lotions, makeup, and even laundry detergents.
- Avoid physical exfoliation: Abrasive scrubbing can cause micro-tears on the skin, leading to irritation and inflammation.
- Use lukewarm water: Hot water can damage the skin's moisture barrier, leading to dryness and sensitivity.
