What is Sensitive Skin?
Sensitive skin is a term used to describe skin that is particularly prone to reactions such as redness, irritation, itching, or rashes. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetic predispositions, environmental factors, contact dermatitis, or certain skin conditions like rosacea or eczema.
People with sensitive skin often find that their skin reacts to substances that don't bother most people. These can include certain skincare products, synthetic fragrances, dyes, or detergents. These reactions occur because sensitive skin has a weakened skin barrier. When this barrier is compromised, it can let in irritants more easily and lose moisture more quickly, leading to dry skin, irritation, and increased sensitivity. Skincare products tailored for sensitive skin, like a fragrance-free moisturizer with hyaluronic acid, can help calm irritation and strengthen the skin barrier.
Do I Have Sensitive Skin?
Determining if you have sensitive skin typically involves recognizing certain signs and symptoms. Some of these might include frequent skin reactions such as acne, redness, itching, or a feeling of tightness or dryness. Skin sensitivity to common skin care products or household items that contain synthetic fragrances or dyes is another telltale sign. Reactions to environmental factors, such as wind, cold, or sun, and substances like salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide can also indicate a sensitive skin condition.
However, it's important to note that these signs can also be symptoms of other skin conditions or an allergic reaction. If you suspect you have sensitive skin or another skin condition, it would be best to consult with a board-certified dermatologist.
