When a person has sensitive skin, it can be very difficult to find good skin care products that will not further irritate their skin. Sensitive skin is typically thin and very delicate with fine pores. Sensitive skin will get flushed easily and may have capillaries that are highly visible and can easily be broken. People with sensitive skin often have problems with allergens and may experience frequent rashes. In addition sensitive skin tends to not only be sensitive to chemicals and skin care products but it is also very sensitive to the sun and will burn easily.
When choosing beauty products for sensitive skin, the important thing to look for is the word hypoallergenic.
Hypoallergenic means that the product was created specifically for people with sensitive skin. It has been sufficiently tested and proven to have little to no allergic reaction with the skin.
People with sensitive skin also need to look for beauty products that are fragrance and perfume free. Beauty products that contain fragrances tend to cause skin allergies and may make people with sensitive skin have a reaction. Fragrance in skin care products is one of the leading causes of dermatitis, eczema and allergic reactions.
Another important factor to consider when choosing beauty products for sensitive skin is to look for non-cosmogenic products. Non-cosmogenic products are products which will not clog the pores. With sensitive skin, it is important not to create any additional problems and clogged pores could lead to disaster.
People with sensitive skin need to follow a beauty regimen that will address their sensitive skin problems. A gentle nondrying cleanser is vital for proper skincare. Another great skin care product for people with sensitive skin is a good exfoliate. Exfoliating helps to get rid of the dead dry skin on the surface to unveil the healthier skin underneath. This also helps the skin to look and feel great.

How to care for sensitive skin?
- Hydrate your skin
Sensitive skin is prone to dryness may lead to greater sensitivity. Drinking eight glasses of water and applying a lightweight and hypoallergenic moisturizer a day can help restore your skin’s moisture or oil barrier that acts as a defense mechanism against allergens.
- Eating skin-friendly
Fruits, vegetables and other foods rich in water are essential in correcting skin imbalances. The content of vitamins, minerals and water from these foods hydrate the skin and restore its health. On the other hand, eating spicy foods and alcohol and caffeinated drinks can increase your skin’s sensitivity.
- Limit sun exposure
Sun exposure can cause sensitive skin to easily redden and burn. Apply sunscreen on your face with sunscreen and body with sunscreen before going out. You can extend protection to the lips to prevent browning.
Applying a lip balm SPF-rich your lipstick or gloss can help protect lips. Umbrellas, sunglasses, hats and protect your body, eyes and face from overexposure to the sun.
- Protect skin at all times
Even when you are indoors, your skin still needs protection. If you are staying in an air conditioning or heating, apply a light moisturizer frequently. This will prevent your skin from drying out due to extreme temperatures.
- Avoid products with artificial colors and synthetic fragrances
Dyes and fragrances are added to the products of skincare only for marketing. Your skin really benefits from these additions. Often, it can even cause allergic reactions and increase your skin’s sensitivity.
It is important to understand that…
Sensitive skin is very different from normal skin, hence, it requires specialized care and attention. You need to be careful with your skin and use products that address its specific concerns. Check the labels on your skin care products. Avoid fragrances, artificial dyes and the various paraben preservatives, as they can cause irritation and possible health problems.
