What do you mean by sensitive skin? Do you flush and come out in a rash without warning? Do beauty products and scents sting and burn? And what should you do about it? Firstly, what triggers it? Stress? Emotion? The weather?
Erno Laszlo said “Beautiful skin requires commitment, not a miracle”.
Do you use a gentle, soap-free cleanser and lukewarm water to clean your face at night? And a soothing, moisturising facemask regularly before an intensely hydrating serum? Exfoliating is important too. Have you checked all your skincare products and cosmetics to see that there are no ingredients you are intolerant of or even allergic to. Fragrances? Antibiotics? Rubber? Even metals — think jewellery and watches. Wash your hands frequently too, and try not to scratch. Do use high factor sun protection, even when it’s cloudy.
Jana Elston said “Your skin has a memory. In 10, 20, 30 years from now, your skin will show the results of how it was treated today. So treat it kindly and with respect.”
Sensitive skin is usually caused by irritated nerve ends. They may be irritated by the sun or by pollution or sudden changes in temperature, by hard water or hot water or just by the chlorinated water in a swimming pool, by dry skin or dehydration — are you drinking enough water? Or by stress or lack of sleep or by hormonal changes.
Dr. Georgianna Donadio said “Your skin is the fingerprint of what is going on inside your body, and all skin conditions, from psoriasis to acne to aging, are the manifestations of your body’s internal needs, including its nutritional needs.”
Simple moisturising creams with glycerin, hyaluronic acid, petrolatum (mineral oil jelly), ceramides, or lipids may suit you, and lotions with chamomile, aloe, and green tea polyphenols tend to soothe sensitive skin. Cool, steeped green tea or chamomile tea bags are anti-inflammatory and so are oatmeal and cold milk or yogurt. Try a compress using one of those when your skin is red and irritated.
