CARE FOR SENSITIVE, REACTIVE SKIN PRONE TO IRRITATION

Sensitive skin belongs to reactive skin types hypersensitive to a number of stimuli, both external and internal. A significant influence in the appearance of irritation has an improper diet (eating intense spices, smoking, drinking alcohol), sudden changes in temperature, the use of inappropriate cosmetics (improper care, neglect of hygiene) or plain water.

 

Not taking the above principles into account can contribute significantly to uncomfortable symptoms, even aggravating them in a significant manner.

When dealing with a skin type prone to irritation, we must take into account its genetic predisposition. We inherit fragile blood vessels, thin skin, and sensitized nerve endings. Excessive skin sensitivity can be both permanent and temporary with muted symptoms. The most prominent symptoms include:

  • redness and non-disappearing erythema,
  • itching, burning,
  • a feeling of tension, tightness of the skin,
  • cracking of dry spots on the skin,
  • severe reactions triggered by contact with certain stimuli,
  • constant dilatation and weakening of blood vessels,
  • excessive flaking.

Due to frequent skin lesions, redness, excessive flaking, reactive skin is often confused with allergic skin. The presence of these symptoms in reactive skin is not related to the immune system response. Therefore, it is important to seek professional dermatological advice to determine the type of skin you have, because a misdiagnosis is often the cause of improper care, which leads to worsening of the skin condition.

Of fundamental importance in the care of reactive skin is the elimination of the factors causing the above-mentioned symptoms and counteracting their negative impact on the skin. Environmental factors have a significant impact on hyperreactive skin by constantly irritating it. Appropriate preventive measures should be introduced in the form of protecting the skin against UV radiation by using UV filters that limit the effect of the sun on the skin, choosing appropriate clothing for the current weather conditions and installing a filtering system in the case of excessively hard water. The most important thing is to take care and strengthen the blood vessels in reactive skin not only by using appropriate cosmetics, but also focusing on a proper diet and giving up stimulants.

Reactive skin, prone to irritation, redness is one of the most demanding complexions. To reduce the occurrence of these symptoms we must regularly take care of its condition by providing it with proper care. We pay special attention to the quality and purpose of cosmetic preparations and nutrition, so that this type of skin becomes the least bothersome for us.
