Before we get onto the best solutions available, let’s be clear about what is actually meant by sensitive skin, also known as oversensitive skin or hypersensitive skin. Now affecting more than half of the population, sensitive skin refers to an unpleasant condition – pulling, prickling, burning, and stinging sensations – experienced by skin. They may occur all the time, but can also be brought on by external and internal factors.
Both external and internal factors can play their part
The root cause of sensitive skin symptoms is thought to be overly sensitive nerve endings in the skin that fire off pain signals in response to harmless daily stimuli like the wind or temperature changes. The trigger factors for sensitive skin rashes can be divided into external and internal factors:
- External factors: Pollution, temperature changes, changes in skin pH, UV exposure, unsuitable cosmetics
- Internal factors: Stress, strong emotion, hormonal changes
