What is meant by sensitive skin?
The complaints of sensitive skin are complex. Some complain of a burning sensation and for others the skin itches and tightens. Redness and stinging are also possible. The sensations are highly subjective and vary from person to person. What is clear, however, is that sensitive skin can lead to unpleasant pain. There are no objective criteria for sensitive skin.
However, it is now known that the nerves that are responsible for transmitting stimuli such as "it itches" work differently than with normal skin. In science, sensitive skin is understood to be skin that reacts particularly strongly to external stimuli (wind, cold, cosmetics).
Causes of sensitive skin
There are many causes of sensitive skin. More and more people suffer from sensitive skin and the tendency is increasing. But what is it all about? Scientists are not in agreement. What is clear, however, is that there are a number of different causes for sensitive skin. Many people react much more sensitively to environmental substances than they did a few decades ago.
Furthermore, our skin is often over-cared for and washed much more frequently than it used to be. We also have less contact with dirt and animals. This ensures that our immune system is less busy and underchallenged. As a consequence, the immune system turns against itself and sensitive skin develops.
Too much hygiene can cause sensitive skin. If you wash too often, you´ll mess up the skin barrier's ability to regenerate. Normally, our protective coat of fat, proteins and sweat recovers very quickly. However, if you wash your hands very often within an hour, you risk sensitive skin.
Creams for sensitive skin
Creams against sensitive and allergic skin are particularly popular. As mentioned before, the skin's protective barrier is often destroyed, resulting in sensitive skin. High-quality creams can repair this protective skin barrier. Active ingredients such as neurosensins, hyaluron and ceramides ensure this. These active ingredients ensure that the skin receives long-lasting care. The advantages of creams for sensitive skin are obvious:
- they supply the skin with moisture
- Itching is relieved
- Redness is eliminated
- The skin feels better
In addition to high-quality creams, you can also find lotions, sprays, shampoos or balms.
