Are You Experiencing A Sensitive Skin Moment?

We all have bad skin days and for some of us, that means sensitivity. Sensitive skin can feel uncomfortable and make us feel self-conscious, so it shouldn’t be something that we just have to put up with.

It turns out that Lancôme completely agrees. They’ve developed a new product which is going to banish all our sensitivity woes, let me tell you all about it!

How can I tell if I have sensitive skin?

First up, let’s just clarify that your skin is sensitive by looking at some of the symptoms:

  • Sore, itchy or sensitive to touch

  • Feeling of tightness

  • Patches of dryness or flakiness

  • Uneven skin tone and patches of redness

  • Becomes worse after using most skincare products

  • Irritated by water

  • Experiencing a tingling or stinging sensation

What causes skin sensitivity?

Skin sensitivity all comes down to our skin barrier, which normally keeps all the irritants out, but in this case, it just doesn’t work as well as it should. The skin barrier can lose effectiveness for a lot of reasons including the wrong levels of moisture and an unbalanced pH level. When it’s not working properly, our nerves at the top of our skin react against the irritants getting into the body which leads to the symptoms we experience.

Some people just have more sensitive nerve endings, but for most, there a direct reason as to why we’re having a sensitive skin moment. These include:

  • After sun exposure

  • A period of stress or lack of sleep

  • Cold weather or frequently changing temperatures

  • Air pollution

  • Hormonal changes

  • Chlorine

  • Dry or dehydrated skin

  • Exposure to very hot water or very hard water
