Sensitive Skin: Understanding Your Skin Type and Navigating the Skincare World

Sensitive skin is a common skin concern that affects many people. If you have sensitive skin, you know how frustrating it can be to find the right skincare products that don't cause irritation or discomfort. In this blog post, we'll discuss the characteristics of sensitive skin, what causes it, and how to care for it.

What is Sensitive Skin?

Sensitive skin is a skin type that is easily irritated by various environmental factors such as weather changes, sun exposure, and skincare products. Sensitive skin is characterized by redness, itchiness, dryness, and a tight feeling after using certain products.

What Causes Sensitive Skin?

There are many factors that can contribute to sensitive skin. Genetics, hormonal changes, stress, and diet can all play a role. Certain skincare products with harsh chemicals or fragrances can also cause irritation. Environmental factors like pollution and weather changes can also cause sensitivity.

Caring for Sensitive Skin

If you have sensitive skin, it's important to choose skincare products that are gentle and free from harsh chemicals and fragrances. Also, be sure to patch test new products before applying them to your entire face.

When it comes to cleansing, opt for a gentle, sulfate free cleanser that won't strip your skin of its natural oils. Avoid using hot water and harsh exfoliants, which can cause irritation.

When it comes to serums, look for lightweight, non-greasy textures that won't clog your pores. Choose products that contain natural ingredients which are known for their soothing properties. One such ingredient is immortelle oil found in our Albanian Immortelle Serum.

Our organic immortelle oil is a great choice for people with sensitive skin because it has anti-inflammatory properties that help to soothe and calm the skin. It’s abundant in flavonoids and phenolic compounds, which help to reduce inflammation and redness. In fact, immortelle oil has been used for centuries for its healing properties, making it a great choice for those with sensitive skin looking to soothe and protect their skin.

Additionally, our Albanian Immortelle Serum available at Neiman Marcus, is perfect for those with sensitive skin who have had negative experiences with hyaluronic acid (HA). Many skincare products contain low molecular weight HA, but it can cause irritation due to its pro-inflammatory properties. Our serum uses a blend of medium to high molecular weights to prevent inflammation and irritation, making it suitable for all skin types, especially sensitive skin. So you can still get the hydration you need without the harsh side effects.

It's also important to protect your skin from the sun with a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. Choose a sunscreen that is specifically formulated for sensitive skin.

Sensitive skin can be frustrating, but with the right skincare products and practices, you can manage it. Stick to gentle products that won't cause irritation, and be sure to patch test new products. Protect your skin from the sun and avoid harsh environmental factors that can cause sensitivity. By following these tips, you can keep your sensitive skin healthy and happy.
