Sensitive facial skin: the main causes, ways to recognize, what to avoid and how to care for it.

Sensitive facial skin is a common problem faced by many people. It is a condition in which the skin reacts to various factors such as environmental conditions, product ingredients or even emotional stress. Because sensitive skin can cause discomfort, it's important to understand what causes it and how to properly care for it.

The causes of sensitive facial skin can be various:

  1. Genetics : Sometimes sensitive skin can be inherited, where the skin reacts to certain factors.
  2. Allergies : Some people may be allergic to certain ingredients in cosmetics or even food, and this can cause skin sensitivity.
  3. Environmental factors : Harmful environmental factors such as sunlight, wind or cold weather can irritate the skin and cause sensitivity.
  4. Product ingredients : Some ingredients in cosmetics or even hygiene products may be too strong or unsuitable for sensitive skin and may cause irritation.

It is important to mention that sensitive skin has several expressions and main symptoms:

  1. Dry skin - when the skin does not produce enough oil to keep it properly moisturized and healthy.
  2. Eczema or atopic dermatitis - when the skin's ability to protect itself from irritants is reduced.
  3. Contact dermatitis - when a rash occurs due to contact with the surface of the skin with a harmful substance.
  4. Allergic Contact Dermatitis – Similar to contact dermatitis, this reaction often presents with rashes, itching, and redness, but it is the result of an allergic reaction.

Symptoms of sensitive skin can range from redness, itching and irritation to sensitivity, rashes, burning sensations and swelling. If you experience these symptoms or any other form of skin discomfort, it is important to consult a dermatologist or doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment recommendations.

Sensitive facial skin needs to be taken care of carefully and carefully. Here are some skin care "rules" that can help you keep your sensitive skin healthy.

  1. Gentle cleansing : Use gentle cleansing products that will not cause additional irritation to the skin or weaken its natural protective barrier.
  2. Moisturize : Using light, unscented moisturizers to keep skin hydrated.
  3. UV Protection : Use a cream with sun protection (SPF) to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.
  4. Avoid aggressive ingredients : Avoid products with alcohol, pungent smell, which can cause skin irritation.
  5. Check that the product does not contain aggressive sulfates (SLS/SLES) that strip the skin of its natural oils, and prefer natural, organic ingredients (though remember that you may be allergic to some natural ingredients). It is important to look at the ingredients list and make sure it does not contain sodium laureate sulfate (SLES) or sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS).
  6. Avoid aggressive scrubs , limit scrubbing to once a week and use gentle cleaning products with natural ingredients.
  7. Avoid very hot showers and washing your face with hot water , as this can damage the keratin cells in the epidermis, the outer layer of the skin. This disrupts the cells' ability to absorb moisture in the skin, leading to dryness, irritation and ultimately a weakening of the barrier.

Sensitive facial skin can be a challenge, but proper care and the right products can make it less sensitive and healthier. It is important to choose gentle and protective ingredients that will help prevent unwanted reactions.
