Common Skin Concern: Sensitivity
Sensitive skin is a common concern that basically means your skin is more reactive or prone to inflammation. Sensitive skin can be the result of a compromised skin barrier, often caused by excessive exposure to skin-damaging environmental factors such as sun, wind, excessive heat or cold, or harsh skincare products that aren’t compatible with your skin.
Signs of sensitive skin
Sensitive skin signs include:
- Inflamed skin
- Diffused Redness
- Skin barrier impairment
- Broken capillaries
- Itching, stinging or burning without a visible rash
- Eczema, hives or other rashes that may itch, sting or burn
What causes sensitive skin?
Skin disorders or allergic skin reactions such as eczema, rosacea or allergic contact dermatitis will also present as sensitive skin.
Sensitivity is very closely linked to your skin barrier health. If your skin barrier is impaired, your skin will likely be more sensitive and reactive to environmental factors. There are many factors that can contribute to sensitive skin, including: incorrect homecare products, excessive exposure to skin-damaging envrionmental factors, genetics and injured skin.
