UNDERSTANDING SENSITIVE SKIN
Sensitive skin is often defined as skin that is reactive to aggressors. These aggressors can be external factors such as weather and harsh skincare products or internal factors such as allergens, hormones, or medical conditions. These factors can often result in reddened, sore, itchy, and painful skin, or in some cases just feeling uncomfortable with your skin.

If you have extremely sensitive skin and it is often painful and irritated, then it is a good idea to see your doctor. They may be able to pinpoint the causes or some treatments that will help, in some cases you need certain medications to calm your skin. However, the majority of the time you will be able to soothe and treat your skin at home by adapting your skincare routine and taking the time to learn what products are gentle enough to work on your skin.

Sensitive skin is a common issue among all skin types and ages.

HOW TO KNOW IF YOU HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN
You may now be wondering ‘Do I have sensitive skin?’ There are many diverse types of sensitive skin and a wide variety of signs and symptoms to go with them, however, there are some common tell-tale signs that you may be dealing with sensitive skin.

Some of these common symptoms include your skin becoming irritated, blotchy, and red after using new products, or perhaps you experience stinging sensations on your face when it’s being washed or exposed to frigid wind or other weather conditions.

If your skin has a habit of developing rashes or becoming uncomfortable and sore when it’s introduced to adverse conditions, then it is likely that you have sensitive skin.
