What is Sensitive Skin?
Our skin can become sensitive for many reasons, and at any points of our lives. It occurs when the skin’s protective barrier function is compromised, causing the skin to be more vulnerable to the penetration of external irritants, such like bacteria, chemical substances, allergens or others.
When the skin loses its ability to protect itself effectively, it becomes fragile and vulnerable to external irritants. It is described as “sensitive” as people with such skin conditions often suffer from burning sensations and redness. Commercial products can thus become easily irritable for individuals with sensitive skin, as the ingredients are too harsh for the compromised skin barrier.
What Are Some Signs of Sensitive Skin?
Symptoms of sensitivity can appear on the face, body and scalp. These can be itchy and disturbing in everyday life, resulting in intense physical discomfort. While some people are predisposed to these ‘outbreaks’ of the condition, others are surprised by these sudden ‘skin moods’. Sensitive skin often reacts unpredictably and can appear anywhere on the body.
Why Is It Important to Care for Sensitive Skin?
Understanding the importance of our skin’s natural defenses and the factors that weakens it can help us to decode our skin. Knowing more about what causes your skin to react helps you determine if it is sensitive or sensitized. You can struggle daily with irritated skin due to genetics or from external stimulants in your environment that cause flare ups. Frequent irritability from lifestyle, irritants, cosmetic ingredients including alcohol, lanolin, fragrance and artificial color and other external factors can contribute to sensitized skin.
