What are the symptoms of sensitive skin?
Almost 70% of people have sensitive skin, and 50% have sensitive skin symptoms that cause discomfort. These symptoms include:
Reactive skin (when using soaps, perfumes, etc.)
Redness (rashes, bumps, blushing or red dilated blood vessels)
Rashes (flaky, dry, bumpy rashes)
In summer, allergies, increased sun exposure, and windy conditions can cause sensitive skin. Differentiating the cause of sensitive skin is important to find the right solution. If you suspect that summer allergies are causing your sensitive skin, such as eczema, hay fever, hives or heat rash, visit a doctor or dermatologist.
Should your sensitive skin be caused by environmental factors, there are several preventative steps you can take.
Sensitive skincare tips
To prevent sensitive skin in summer, follow these tips for sensitive skin during this season.
Sunscreen for sensitive skin
With warmer temperatures and outdoor activities comes the risk of sunburn, especially for sensitive skin that is already peeling or irritated. Wear a non-allergenic sunscreen that has an SPF of 30 or higher on a daily basis. Take special care by properly applying this to your face, as this is the most exposed skin.
Sensitive skincare routine
Sensitive skin can develop due to a reaction after using certain soaps, perfumes, and even household products to wash your clothes, such as detergents and fabric softeners. When it comes to your skincare routine, choose skincare products developed specifically for sensitive skin.
