A continuation on our skin care series: We discussed oily, dry and combination skin already. Today, we’ll be talking about “sensitive skin.” Sensitive skin is quite a common skin type, as it’s also known as a problematic skin.
Sensitive skin is typically a thin or a fine-textured skin. It usually reacts quickly to temperature changes from heat, cold or wind, the sun or pollution. Sometimes aging increases the skins sensitivity.
However, most people who think hey have sensitive skin are probably allergic to the ingredients in their skin care products. Only a dermatologist or a qualified therapist can determine if you have a sensitive skin.
Sensitive skin usually gets easily irritated, red, rashy, blotchy or prone to allergic reactions. It requires extra gentle care.
It’s important to use mild products formulated to help calm and soothe the skin.
Sensitive skin can still fall into the oily, dry, problem or combination categories. When getting products for a sensitive skin, you want to avoid products with fragrance (very important), alcohol, and the sun should completely be avoided.
Aleo vera gel is very good for sensitive skin as it soothes the skin and takes down any redness. Of course it’s also very important to drink lots of water, and smile more…..:)
Till my next post, stay beautiful!!!!!!
