summary of the article

Recognizing sensitive skin

To find out if you have sensitive skin, ask yourself several questions:

  • Does your skin itch after showering ?
  • Do you have irritation, itching?
  • Is your skin prone to redness when it's hot or cold?
  • Does your skin tend to become red and hot whenever you experience strong emotions?
  • Does your skin feel uncomfortable all the time?

If you answered "yes" to many of these questions, then it's likely that you have sensitive, or reactive, skin.

 

Indeed, reactive skin is defined by the appearance of unpleasant sensations such as tingling, burning, pain, itching and tightness: this discomfort occurs in response to stimuli that would not normally cause such sensations.

Factors that can lead to sensitive skin

Several factors can lead to sensitive skin. This is particularly the case for external factors, such as pollution , UV rays, wind, cold, heat. They weaken the skin barrier and make your skin reactive. 

 

Psychological factors, such as stress, anxiety, intense emotions can also weaken your skin.

 

This is also the case for hormonal factors: during pregnancy, menopause, or at certain phases of the menstrual cycle, the skin becomes more sensitive. Lifestyle can also cause the skin to be more reactive: if you wash your body and face too often, if you scrub and exfoliate every day, if you eat poorly, If you shave often, or if you use cosmetics containing harmful or irritating ingredients, then your skin will undoubtedly weaken and become more sensitive.

 

How to clean sensitive skin?

To clean sensitive skin, you must avoid actions and habits that could irritate it. To do this, always use lukewarm water, whether for the body or face. In fact, hot water accentuates the sensitivity of the skin, and makes it even more reactive.

 

If your tap water is very hard, or if it contains too much chlorine, avoid rinsing your face with it. You can, for example, turn to spray thermal water. 

 

Opt for a gentle treatment, like the Grangettes Switzerland purifying facial gel . It contains hydrolyzed wheat protein and cocoyl proline, which ensure optimal hydration and preserve the softness and suppleness of the skin.

Which face cream for sensitive skin?

Few products, but long-term use

Your skin needs consistency, stability, protection. Don't change your cream every week: opt for a moisturizing cream that you will use for the long term.

 

Furthermore, note that the more cosmetic products you apply to your skin, the more chances you have of irritating it. So use a limited number of cosmetics, and stick to a single, lasting skincare routine.

Analyse the ingredients

To be protected and soothed, the ingredients of the cream play a key role. Avoid substances such as phenoxyethanol, parabens, silicones, PEGs, irritants, allergens, comedogenic ingredients, petroleum derivatives, endocrine disruptors, pollutants and even products of animal origin. In fact, these substances weaken the skin. To be sure you make the right choice of products, cosmetic analysis applications are at your side!

 

The ingredients in your soothing face cream should be hydrating and nutritious. Search in the composition:

  • Squalane : it is a derivative of squalene, which is used in cosmetic formulations. It restores the hydrolipidic film of the epidermis, the protective film on the surface of the skin. This protective barrier helps the skin protect itself from dirt, pollution and any other form of external aggression while preventing the dehydration process. An ally for sensitive skin ! ;

  • Allantoin : this ingredient has healing, anti-inflammatory, regenerating and soothing properties. It calms irritations, hydrates and protects the skin barrier;

  • Betaine : it is an ingredient derived from beets, which has soothing and moisturizing properties. It prevents drying of the skin.

You can also turn to soothing ingredients aloe vera, cornflower or even sweet almond.
