IS YOUR SKIN SENSITIVE?

Nearly half of all people say they have sensitive skin, which can cause a feeling of tightness, dryness, itching, burning and redness. Sensitive skin is caused by nerve endings in the top layer of the skin becoming irritated.  It is often the result of damage to the skin’s protective barrier – allowing irritants and allergens to penetrate the skin and cause redness and inflammation.

SENSITIVE SKIN SYMPTOMS:

  • Your skin flushes and turns red easily
  • You’re prone to rashes and bumps
  • Beauty products sting or burn
  • You have dry patches
  • Your skin feels itchy
  • You’re sensitive to the sun’s UV rays
  • You have broken capillaries on your nose and cheeks
  • Fragrances irritate your sin
  • Your skin reacts to weather changes
  • You break out easily

SENSITIVE SKIN TRIGGERS:

While some people are genetically predisposed to sensitive skin, many others are sensitized by their environment and lifestyle. Sensitive skin triggers include:

SENSITIVE SKIN TREATMENT

While sensitive skin can appear anywhere on the body, it is most obvious on the face. It occurs when the skin’s natural barrier function is compromised, causing water loss and allowing penetration of irritants. Symptoms can worsen with exposure to the sun and certain ingredients in cosmetics and cleansers.

Sensitive skin needs a daily regimen of gentle cleansing and moisturizing with ingredients designed to nourish and calm. AVEENO® Colloidal Oatmeal formulations help seal in moisture, soothe and calm sensitive skin, and restore the skin’s moisture barrier.  AVEENO® Calming Feverfew® formulations help reduce the appearance of redness and help calm sensitive skin.

Here are a few tips:

Cleanse thoroughly, but gently.
icon-water

Use lukewarm (not hot) water.

icon-fragrance

Use mild, soap and fragrance-free cleansers that won’t over dry or irritate, compromising your skin’s moisture barrier.

icon-hand

Gently pat skin dry – don’t rub.

icon-exfoliate

Avoid using scrubs and washcloths.
