Many of us claim that we have sensitive skin but in reality what is sensitive skin? Does breaking out means you have sensitive skin? No, excess oil production in the skin causes pimples; this does not directly indicate that you have sensitive skin. In case of sensitive skin, the layers of the skin get irritated due to a number of internal & external factors causing redness, itching, bumps, pimples & dry patches, etc.
It was hard for me to accept that I have sensitive skin because with sensitive skin one has limited options to try. I cannot try all the latest products that are available in the market and even some of the best brands don’t work on my skin. Every time I try a new product on my skin, it is more like a science lab experiment anything can happen; maybe a miracle or a disaster!
Today I am going to tell you some trigger points that can irritate your sensitive skin
Being exposed to the harmful rays of the sun causes itching, dry skin patches, redness on the exposed areas of the body & face.
I always loved trying new products but slowly I realised that I had to stop this. Certain ingredients in the beauty products can provoke sensitive skin making it aggressive and red !I have to be careful in experimenting with new products.
Pollution leads to a lot of skin problems for all skin types but for those with sensitive skin, extra care needs to be taken to control the sensitivity of the skin.
Stress is the root cause for most of our problems in life and it can play havoc on your sensitive skin.
Lack of Sleep
Our skin repairs itself while we sleep; skin cells get renewed during sleep and thus beauty sleep is a must to soothe sensitive skin.
Less Water Intake
Water helps to flush out the toxins from the body and relieves sensitive skin. Less water intake causes serious damage, aggravating sensitive skin.
Eating a lot of junk, processed & sugary food causes inflammation inside the body and this acts a trigger point in provoking sensitive skin.
Any imbalance in the hormonal levels can be a nightmare for people with sensitive skin, making your skin angry & bumpy.
Not keeping your hair & body clean and wearing unclean clothes can trouble your skin making it itchy, red with bumps all over.
Temperature fluctuations & Weather conditions
Sudden temperature change like using hot water for bathing can cause irritation for people with sensitive skin. Change in the weather leads to change in the temperature which again leads to trouble for sensitive skin.
Active Ingredients helps to improve the condition of the skin but too many active ingredients being used together does more of a harm than doing good.
