Sensitive skin can be a literal pain in the neck. While dealing with ugly breakouts, blemishes, rashes, dry patches, and other visual signs of sensitivity is bad enough, sometimes these reactions can physically hurt, too!
It is essential that you properly diagnose your sensitivities, learn which products cause reactions and which ones work for you, and figure out how to interpret ingredient lists on the back of the bottles of products to avoid provoking a reaction.
It is important to know that sensitive skin isn’t a life sentence. Many people can grow out of or into sensitive skin, or it can be the result of using a particular product that once discontinued, will remedy itself. It can also be seasonal. Many people suffer from sensitive skin in the wintertime when harsh temperatures, blustery winds, and dry indoor air combine to wreak havoc on your skin.
Typical signs of sensitive skin are areas of redness, dryness, blemishes, rashes, flakiness, and breakouts. While everyone’s skin and skin conditions are different, there are some usual suspects when it comes to ingredients that tend to cause or provoke sensitivity. Fragrance is a top culprit, as are alcohol, sodium lauryl sulfate, isopropyl myristate, isopropyl isostearate, menthol, camphor, and peppermint.
