Skin Health Tip…. Sensitivity
What is sensitive skin?
Many people say they have sensitive skin because skin care products, or household products that contact their skin, cause stinging, burning, itchiness, redness, or tightness. Or they say they have it because even though they have no visible effects after contact with a product, it always makes their skin feel uncomfortable.
But here is what dermatologists look for when diagnosing sensitive skin:
- Skin reactions such as pustules, skin bumps, or skin erosion
- Very dry skin which doesn’t properly protect nerve endings in the skin
- A tendency toward blushing and skin flushing
What causes sensitive skin reactions?
Causes of sensitive skin reactions include:
- Skin disorders or allergic skin reactions such as eczema, rosacea, or allergic contact dermatitis
- Overly dry or injured skin that can no longer protect nerve endings, leading to skin reactions
- Excessive exposure to skin-damaging environmental factors such as sun and wind or excessive heat or cold
Genetic factors, age, gender, and race differences in skin sensitivity are less well-defined but still may play a role in causing skin reactions.
What are some tips for protecting my sensitive skin in winter and summer?
First, wear a sunscreen year-round. Use one that says broad spectrum with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30, and use it every day that you will be in the sun for longer than 20 minutes.
Remember, the sun’s skin-damaging UVB rays are strongest between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Avoid going out in the sun during these hours whenever possible, any time of the year.
In winter, to help prevent skin dryness, flaking, itching, and cracking do the following:
- Don’t overheat your home.
- Take warm, not hot, baths and showers — and fewer of them — and use a soap-free cleanser.
- Minimize skin dryness after bathing: Pat your skin dry and apply moisturizer while your skin is still moist.
In summer, keep in mind that tanning damages your skin. Don’t lie out in the sun, even if you’ve applied sunscreen
What should I look for in a sunscreen to protect my sensitive skin?
Your sunscreen should be rated SPF 30 or higher. Its active ingredients should be only zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. This is because you cannot have an allergic reaction to these physical sunscreens. They deflect the sun’s UV rays instead of absorbing them as chemical sunscreens do.
Ingredients to look for and ones to avoid.
Ingredients to avoid:
- Essential Oils
- Chemical Sunscreens
- Harsh Exfoliants
Ingredients to look for:
- Vitamin E
- Sodium hyaluronate
- Jojoba Oil
