Sensitive skin is no fun. Flaring up, skin complaints and dryness can all happen when the skin gets into contact with something that doesn’t agree with them. That’s why it’s so important to look into the right type of sensitive skin facial products for you.
Sensitive skin can be caused by all sorts of problems. Allergies, genetics and intolerances are the most common factors, but according to DoctorsHealthPress.com, there could be whole host of underlying factors that can result in skin sensitivity.
While we recommend products for some symptoms, we advise you consult your GP before using anything on serious skin problems.
Tanning and sunbathing are fine only up to a point before they start causing unwanted effects. Overexposure results in first-to-second-degree burns across the affected part of your body, which then causes tender skin or skin that is sore to the touch. Other symptoms include swelling, the area feeling hot to the touch, painful skin, blistering, and redness.
Any area of skin can be sunburned, so whether it hurts to touch your forearm skin, an earlobe, or your face and torso all depends on your personal activity. We love: Atlantis Skincare St. Johns Wort Macerated Oil
Neuropathy is the catch-all term for when there is something wrong with one or more of your nerves. In some neuropathies, allodynia can happen as the skin becomes more sensitive to touch and other stimuli. Neuropathy is most commonly seen in the limbs (peripheral neuropathy) so if this is the cause, you may experience touch-sensitive skin on your arms and legs more than elsewhere on the body.
The most common cause of chronic peripheral neuropathy is diabetes, but nerve damage can arise from vitamin B12 deficiency, insecticide exposure, lymphomas or myelomas, chronic alcohol abuse, kidney or liver disease, hereditary diseases, arthritis, injury, or certain chemotherapy or HIV drugs. Having said that, about 30% of all neuropathies lack any identifiable cause. We love: Babor Neuro Sensitive Cellular Intensive Calming Cream Rich
In people who have previously had the chicken pox, the virus can sometimes reappear years later as shingles. This new illness causes bouts of pain, burning, numbness, or tingling along the skin, an increased sensitivity to touch, a red rash that appears after the onset of the pain, and blisters that eventually burst and crust over.
Shingles tends to affect only one side or area of your body so you may find that your skin is sensitive to touch on, say, your back but not your front, or only on your left side. We love: Dr. Spiller Biomimetic Skin Care Anti Couperose Cream
