How to recognize sensitive skin?
More common among women, sensitive skin is a condition or more precisely, the reaction of your skin tissue to internal or external aggression of the body. You must take into consideration that this is in no way a type of human integument. This sensitivity can envelop your entire body, but your face remains the most vulnerable area.
Symptoms of skin sensitivity appear due to an immune failure of the affected organ. Indeed, when the natural defenses of the epidermis weaken, it becomes rough and dry. This causes premature aging of the integuments through the formation of wrinkles due to dehydration. Also note that the reaction of the skin tissue to attacks is amplified when it is too cold. You must therefore promote specific care during the winter.
If your skin shows the 3 signs below, you must take the necessary measures to treat vulnerable tissues gently and delicately. This is why we recommend the use of a natural soap or a product based on organic ingredients . This initiative allows you to take better care of your body and revive the radiance of your face .
Sensitive skin tissue is characterized by:
- Redness: upon contact with cold or heat, your skin may redden or even heat up.
- Itching: protection of the epidermis becomes precarious. She itches more.
- Pulling: this case occurs at the slightest change in temperature. It prevents you from taking a shower since hard water promotes soreness.
You must differentiate between a skin allergy and/or rosacea by the sensitivity of the epidermis. The latter corresponds more to a temporary over-reactivity.
What are the factors that sensitize the skin?
Skin sensitivity factors can be endogenous (internal) and/or exogenous (external). Before expanding on this topic, you must first take into account that the main cause of this skin condition is dehydration . Using organic soaps allows you to effectively hydrate your skin.
Some people have thinner and naturally fragile epidermis.
In most cases, skin sensitivity is due to external aggression. Dry skin is caused by climatic and environmental factors (temperature, UV rays, etc.). But exposure to chemicals (change in neutral epidermal pH) and psychotropic drugs (drugs, tobacco, etc.) can also make your epidermis more vulnerable.
Regarding the internal causes which sensitize your epidermis , they can relate to your genetic heritage or even to hormones. Know that your genetic heritage defines the health of your skin tissues. It determines the regeneration of cells, the secretion of glands as well as the degeneration of connective tissues and elastic fibers. Hormonal disturbances, hereditary diseases such as diabetes or serious conditions such as kidney failure can also cause skin sensitivity .
