We often forget that our skin is the first line of defense we have against the harmful elements we encounter in our day-to-day lives. As such, the stress we place on our skin can have surprising and challenging consequences. While some individuals seem to have indestructible skin, others find that the slightest issue causes significant pain and inflammation.
Let’s examine skin sensitivity, causes, reactions, and Solace Wellness procedures that individuals with sensitive skin can utilize to soothe and revitalize skin health.
Types of Skin Sensitivity
A number of issues can negatively affect skin and the sensitivity reaction a person experiences can manifest in different ways. Common types of skin sensitivity include:
- Causes and Triggers
Skin reactions can be induced or exacerbated by an array of factors, such as:
- Sun Exposure
- Allergies (food, cleansers, medication, etc.)
- Temperature Change
- Chemical Exposure
- Cosmetic Irritation
- Vitamin Deficiency
Being aware of symptom triggers can help diagnose the cause of skin sensitivity. Additionally, being aware of symptom triggers can help individuals with sensitive skin avoid unpleasant symptoms from developing.
Caring for Sensitive Skin
To reduce the intensity of skin reactions, some individuals use laundry detergents, soaps, lotions, cosmetics, and clothing that are designed to reduce skin irritation. Avoiding sun exposure and using gentle sunscreens are also helpful in both avoiding skin cancer and reducing inflammatory responses in one’s skin. Additionally, having an allergy test performed and avoiding allergy triggers is another step toward healthier skin.
While avoiding allergens and using skincare products designed for sensitive skin can help reduce skin reactions, some individuals require medical intervention when managing skin sensitivity.
Solace Wellness Center provides skincare services that cater to individuals with unique needs. Many of our facial treatments are designed to be gentle, healing and exfoliating the skin without inducing sensitivity reactions.
For skin that’s particularly dry, the Total Hydration Facial can help your skin retain its moisture and elasticity.
