Dr. Joel Schlessinger offers tips on treating sensitive skin at Daily Glow.
Daily Glow asks skin care experts, including Dr. Joel Schlessinger, for their tips on sensitive skin.
The article is titled “Signs That May Mean You Have Sensitive Skin.” These signs include red, itchy, dry, flaky, stinging, swollen and/or irritated skin – and, according to one expert at the American Academy of Dermatology, nearly 50 percent of people in her practice have experienced inflamed skin at some point in their lives.
Typically, skin cells serve as a barrier by holding water in, the article explains, and keeping irritants out.
Dr. Joel Schlessinger adds that the skin barrier is thinner in people with sensitive skin.
Because of this thinner skin, active ingredients and fragrances in soaps, cleansers and the like are more likely to burn. If you notice this pattern, try fragrance-free products to see if this fixes the problem.
Here are just a couple of products available at LovelySkin.com for people with sensitive skin:
- SkinMedica Sensitive Skin Cleanser: this is a gentle, creamy cleanser containing cucumber, chamomile and Matricaria Flower Extract. Use this product to remove makeup and excess oil and to fight back against environmental pollutants. This is an ideal product if you have highly sensitive or inflamed skin, and is a product of choice if you’ve had recent laser resurfacing, microdermabrasion or chemical peeling.
- Sothys Beauty Essentials Trial Kit for Sensitive and Dry Skin: this kit contains Soothing Beauty Milk; Soothing Lotion; Hydroptimale THI3 Hydrating Serum; and Hydroptimale THI3 Comfort Hydrating Crème. Because the products are all trial sized, this is a perfect purchase to make to try out the Sothys sensitive skin line.
