Sensitive Skin - Causes and Solutions

Nov 5, 2007
Sensitive skin is a condition that affect millions of people. It is for certain, nothing to be ashamed of or worried about-at least until the symptoms begin to show. Sensitive skin covers everything from sudden blushing to the growth of hives or many other spots that itch or cause irritation.

Sensitive skin can be a perplexing and painful condition to bear. Nevertheless, with the right treatment, many sensitive skin problems can be managed to the point that a regular lifestyle is possible. The most complicating factor is the fact that there is no single cause of sensitive skin which is why no single sensitive skin care treatment will work everyone.

The beginning symptoms of sensitive skin are usually subtle, but there are some known reactions to prove your have one. Have you noticed a tingling sensation in your skin or do you feel it tightening up-but can not see any discernible signs of a problem? Do you always search for skin care and hygienic products that does not cause an allergic reaction with your skin?

When you shave do you get severe reactions that lead to red or inflamed skin? Do people tell you your face and skin turn dark red when under stress? Do you always have dry skin or skin redness but you never actually found the cause? If your answer is yes to one or more of the above questions, then you definitely suffer from some form of sensitive skin.

The most common causes of sensitive skin problems are numerous but I will point out the most obvious ones. Sometimes you are born with the condition like blushing or itching easily and always. When you are especially prone to sunburn or getting freckles due to some sun exposure then the condition is in your genes. Another sign of genetic factors towards the condition is known allergic reaction to wool or latex gloves.

Foods we eat are the common cause of skin problems. It is different for everyone, but some foods can cause severe allergic reaction in some people. I am sure you have heard someone tell you, I don't eat beans or some other types of fruit. In some people increased stress makes them blush easily. While, in others just changing skin care medications can trigger an allergic reaction. The known triggers such as food, stress, medication, or skin care products that must be monitored and avoided.

For those with sensitive skin genes since birth, the best way is to accept the problem and then find a way to manage the condition. Simple common sense will be your best defense against known or newly discovered causes. If you're allergic to the sun just reduce your exposure or try sun protection cream or other popularly known aids from your local pharmacist.

If you're allergic to certain products or food avoid them at all cost. Keep a mental tab of or better yet keep a journal of products to stay away from because of known past allergic reactions to them. Simply by avoiding these conditions and situations, you can eliminate or limit the problems associated with the symptoms of sensitive skin while not altering your lifestyle.

If you suffer from dry skin condition, finding the right moisturizer is the proactive step you can take to limit sensitive skin problems. Try to only use natural moisturizers that contain no chemical ingredients or alcohol in them. Moisturizers made with all natural ingredients should be preferred to those made with chemicals or other artificial products because they are less likely to cause other allergic reactions common to those with sensitive skin.
