‘Sensitive skin’, as the dermatologists have named, is quite fragile and can completely get worn if not handled with care. The article points out many causes of pimples, irritations and rashes on sensitive skin. The main reason is perfumated skin care products or the ones that are acidic in base like anti-aging products, retinoids, topical vitamin C and glycolic acid. The article suggests the following:
1. If you want to cleanse your skin use products based on alpha lipoic acid, idebenone, vitamin E, resveratrol and peptides.
2. Use an exfoliator that has a peel based formula.
3. Sunscreens containing a mineral base like zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, kojic and azelaic acid are effective as it provides broad spectrum coverage.
Last but not the least those skins, which become sensitive suddenly should identify the effect of hormonal trigger, food allergies and external allergies. After finding out the effect of certain triggers they should visit the dermatologist and find a solution to it before the cell damages further in a particular area.
