Living with sensitive skin can feel like a challenge, to say the least. Whether you have occasional flare-ups or battle with chronic sensitivity, dealing with this condition might feel like you’re walking on eggshells when it comes to your skincare regimen.
We launched Alivio Wellness with a desire to create a range of products all skins will love, especially those with sensitivity. Say goodbye to red, irritated faces and hello to a happy healthy glow- here are our best products for sensitive skin.
Defining sensitive skin
Sensitive skin often is extremely reactive, either to ingredients or environments (for example, vitamin C or a particularly cold bout of weather). This sensitivity can also be caused by genetics, allergies or underlying skin conditions.
Sensitive skin and a weakened skin barrier often go hand in hand, which only leaves someone more susceptible to the irritation and dryness that often comes with sensitivity. These factors mean a highly cherry-picked skincare regimen, avoiding any products that could cause inflammation or a skin temper tantrum. Sensitivity isn’t a one-size-fits-all however, the causes of irritation vary from person to person, this is also true for the severity of the condition.
Signs you might need sensitive skincare
Not sure if your skin is sensitive? There are a few common signs:
Your skin might easily flush, especially after exposure to weather triggers or certain skincare products. Experience redness on your face no matter how gentle you are with a flannel? Yep, you’re probably a little sensitive.
Your skin may feel very tight or dehydrated due to a weakened skin barrier. This is also a sign that your skin struggles to retain moisture that keeps your face plump and glowy.
Sensitive skin can feel terribly itchy and uncomfortable, particularly in areas you experience more dryness and irritation.
After using certain skincare ingredients or exposure to triggering environments, you may feel a painful stinging sensation.
Usually the signs of an allergy, sensitive skin can also break you out in rashes when using particular ingredients. You might also find certain environments trigger a skin reaction.
A weakened and sensitive skin barrier can cause breakouts and acne. This can also be triggered by skin that's not being cleaned properly, as many with sensitivity are fearful of making irritation worse by cleansing.
