“The mind is like water. When it’s turbulent, it’s difficult to see. When it’s calm, everything becomes clear.” –Prasad Mahes
Sensitive skin is a type of epidermis that is intolerant to the vast majority of external agents with which it comes into contact, (soaps, cleansers, creams, makeup, but also clothing fabrics, UV rays, climate conditions) and this intolerance is manifested through redness, irritation, eczema, dryness, rashes, and inflammation. The characteristic of sensitive skin involves a limited absorption of water by the skin and a lower concentration of fats in the most superficial layer of the skin: this layer acts as a barrier, and the lower presence of lipids weakens the level of protection, resulting in irritation and inflammation.
How to protect your sensitive skin
- Treat your skin to a tall, refreshing drink of water: Because sensitive skin has such a difficult time absorbing the water necessary for achieving total hydration, you must drink, drink, drink and hydrate in abundance. The use of tap water must be done with caution. In fact, it is important to preserve the optimal quality of the hydrolipidic film which acts as a protective barrier on the surface of the skin. If your skin pulls or turns red, something in the water is irritating it. However, this is not a good reason to give up using it. Also, choose a powerful moisturizer. This combination intervention serves to rebalance the protective barrier of the epidermis, which should be able to counteract the irritants.
- Make sure you perform a skin test before using new products: Women with sensitive skin do not have the luxury of explicitly “trusting” products, even when those products clearly indicate use for sensitive skin. Make it a habit to do a skin test on a small area of your body, like your neck or internal wrist to make sure you do not have any type of reaction to the product. Also, if you try a new product, give yourself some time to see any potential future reactions before introducing any additional, new skin products. Give yourself at least a week to try a new product and to be certain that your skin does not have any adverse reactions to the ingredients in the product.
- Choose pure, gentle organic products that protect your sensitive skin: It is important to keep sensitive skin clean, but it is even more important to avoid irritating it further with the wrong products. Avoid products high in foam, as the less amount of foam, the less your risk of dry and dehydrated skin. Abrasive scrubs may react too harshly with certain skin types; therefore, carefully choose exfoliation products based on the cream texture, and the formula, which must be fragrance free! Choose a skin toner with a soothing and calming effect, like calendula.
