Skin Care Lesson: Sensitive Skin!

Anyone is capable of attaining sensitive skin due to a lifestyle you decide to live. With that said, there are two nationalities that are actually born with sensitive skin; the Scottish and the Irish. They are born with a certain percentage of sensitive skin. Scottish people being the ones with the most sensitive skin. Just because you weren't born with sensitive skin, doesn't mean that your skin is unable to develop this skin condition. It can come about at anytime in your life. Rosacea derives from having sensitive skin. Oily skin tends to be sensitive. 

How to Detect Sensitive Skin:
Does your skin break out? Does your skin feel tight when trying out products? Does your skin turn red when trying out products or when skin has been exposed to hot water? If you have answered yes to one or all of these questions, then you may have sensitive skin. 

Causes of sensitive skin:
o   Alcohol
o   Weather: sun; even sun shining through a window in your home or car, humidity, wind chill, cold weather, wind.
o   Smoking: even if you are a second hand smoker. Smoke on the face causes the skin to develop sensitivity.
o   Environmental Aggressions: pollution, etc
o   Drugs
o   Spicy Foods
o   Central Heating
o   Central Air Conditioning
o   Harsh Chemicals
o   Preservatives: Parabens, Phthalates, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS or for short Sulfate) Sulfate is what causes products to really foam. You can still have products that foam with sulfate. So, toothpaste, hand soaps, shampoos, cleansers, etc., as well as other preservatives. Parabens prolong beauty products life span.
o   Using harsh skin care products on your face, because it isn't for your skin type
o   Hot showers
o   Steam
o   Red Wine. Red wine is great for the system internally, but horrible externally, causing permanent redness to the skin, which leads to rosacea.  

Products for sensitive skin:
Honestly, sensitivity in the skin varies from person to person. What cause my skin to react may not cause your skin to react in any shape, way, or form, and vice versa. All natural and organic products are very good for sensitive skin. Other than that, I haven't had problems with Clinique, Clarins, Lancome, Biotherm, Dior is all I think of on the top of my head that is not considered all natural or organic. These lines have been fine for me. You have to decide which products will be good for you and your skin type. Other lines that have worked for me are Avene, La Roche Posay and Vichy. Look for products for your skin type as you would and should.
