How do you recognize sensitive skin?
Sensitive skin reacts quickly to external influences. Think of heat, cold, drought, high humidity or the sun, for example. For example, the skin may become red. The skin feels tight and therefore itches quickly. Does your skin respond quickly to weather changes?
What causes sensitive skin?
Sensitive skin can have various causes. The skin is often naturally sensitive and more people in the family have sensitive skin. High levels of stress, a poor diet and/or lifestyle, medication and hormone changes can all also cause sensitive skin.
How do you prevent sensitive skin?
Clean sensitive skin with a mild facial cleanser. This way you prevent the skin from becoming irritated by aggressive ingredients. An oil can help make and keep the skin resilient. It is important to check whether your skin responds well to the oil. Sensitive skins can also respond to all-natural products. Therefore, always do a patch test on the inside of your elbow, for example. Apply a little oil there. If you have no reaction 24 hours later, you can safely use the oil.
Preferably also remove make-up with an oil. This is a mild way of cleansing the skin. Sensitive skin can also be nourished very well with an oil. Choose an oil with skin-specific properties. Jojoba oil is such an oil. This oil has sebum-regulating properties and ensures that your skin is well hydrated. It also has a soothing and strengthening effect. You can use the oil for your facial skin, but also for your body and to remove makeup.
