Treating Sensitive Skin with GM Collin

What is Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin is a condition that affects millions of people. It is characterized by an increased sensitivity to external factors, such as temperature, light and touch. Sensitive skin has a lower barrier function and thinner epidermis than normal skin. This means that it’s more likely to absorb harmful chemicals from your environment and it can also be a genetic condition.

Factors That Can Cause or Aggravate Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin is a common problem that can affect many people, but the cause of sensitive skin is not always clear. There are several different factors that can cause or aggravate sensitive skin.

The first factor is genetic predisposition. Sensitive skin tends to run in families, so if your parents have sensitive skin, there’s a good chance you will too. In some cases, sensitive skin may be related to other diseases such as psoriasis or rosacea.

Other factors that can lead to sensitive skin include:

1. Environmental factors like pollution and excessive heat or cold

2. Cosmetics and perfumes (especially those with alcohol)

3. Dryness or dehydration

4. Cold temperatures (especially wind)

5. Excessive heat (sun exposure, hot showers/baths, saunas/steam rooms)

Prevention Tips For Sensitive Skin

1. Use a gentle cleansing lotion.

2. Use a mild facial cleanser and avoid harsh soaps, astringents, and abrasive scrubs.

3. Avoid hot water when washing your face and body, especially if you have sensitive skin. Cold water is best for washing your face and body. Hot water can irritate sensitive skin and can also cause redness or swelling of the skin.

4. Moisturize daily with a light moisturizer that contains SPF protection if you are going to be out in the sun for long periods of time or if you have fair skin that burns easily in the sun (such as redheads).

5. Wear sunglasses when outdoors to protect your eyes from UV rays that can damage delicate eye tissue over time and lead to cataracts or macular degeneration later in life (see below).

Treatment Of Sensitive Skin

The best way to treat sensitive skin is to prevent further damage from occurring. This can be done by practicing good hygiene and avoiding harsh products that may irritate the skin further. You should also consider using a gentle cleanser that contains no fragrance or preservatives that could potentially cause irritation. If you experience pain or discomfort after cleansing your face then try using a milder formula for Sensitive Skin which has been clinically tested on people with normal to dry skin types like yours!
