How to know if your skin is sensitive

27th February 2013

For those of us that have particularly sensitive skin, the simplest of everyday tasks can cause our skin to flare up.

Running a sink of hot water for the washing up, or even using a different fabric conditioner can result in red rashes and sore skin. What can be even more frustrating and exhausting is trying to work out what caused the reaction in the first place.

For those of us who struggle with sensitive skin as a reaction from certain foods, working out how manage our diets can be time consuming and take the fun out of food. If this all sounds familiar then you aren't alone with as many as 50% of us struggling with sensitive skin.

One of the biggest problems is sensitive skin going undiagnosed and therefore being left untreated. If you are prone to blushing, itching and find your skin burns easily in the sun then it's likely you have sensitive skin.

Other common signs of sensitive skin include redness or irritation more commonly known amongst the skin care experts as Rosacea.

Although there are numerous tips, such as using soaps with lower PH's or checking the temperature of you water. Ultimately, if you want to build a good relationship with your skin and gain an understanding on how to look after it properly, then come in for a consultation at a sk:n clinic near you.
