Simple Ideas about Sensitive Skin

Updated on February 29, 2008

Many people have sensitive skin. It is really irritating especially for women since they can't apply make-ups anyhow. They need to see which is suitable for their skin and if any allergies will occur.

Let us look at some sensitive skin care tips to control your sensitive skin.

Firstly, we need to find out if your problems are indeed due to your skin being sensitive. You can ask yourself these questions to find out.

  • 1. Do you blush, itch or sunburn easily?
  • 2. Does your skin react badly when in contact with wool or latex?
  • 3. Do you have food allergies or break out when changing skin care products?
  • 4. When your stress levels change, does your skin show it?

If your answer to number 1 is yes, then you have most likely been that way since birth. You have fair skin. Fortunately for you, you can do a number of things for this skin type.

The most important thing is not to stay out in the sun for long and wear sunscreen when needed. If you have answered yes to 1 and 2, then you have sensitive skin. Avoid anything that causes breakouts and be selective in choosing your skin care product. This way you can help to manage your skin well.

If you have answered yes to 3 and 4, then you have sensitive skin triggers. This means that your skin only gets sensitive due to something and it's not sensitive all the time.

The most common way to manage is to avoid the things that make your skin sensitive but it's easier said than done as you probably know. You need to pay attention and notice changes in this case. If you can pinpoint the moment your skin changes from your newest skin care product, check the labels and see what is different. You can also just switch to a non petroleum based skin care product, so that your skin is not exposed to chemicals.

The hardest one to manage is the stress trigger. You can't manage stress with skin care products but you can help by noticing the changes. Learn to recognize when you are stressed or getting stressed and stop it. This is the best way to manage stress trigger. Using a breathing exercise or taking a walk will generally cause the heart rate to lower and not cause the skin to become sensitive.

Allergies can also be a trigger for sensitive skin. Take note of the weather changes and get the appropriate treatments like over the counter medicines.
