SENSITIVE SKIN: CAUSES, PREVENTION, TREATMENT
Sensitive skin is on the rise. But yet not many people know how to manage this skin condition.
Is your skin sensitive? If you are unsure, check for some of these skin conditions on your face or body:
- Intense itch and rashes
- Inflammatory redness (Erythema)
- Acne break-out at the first sign of stress
- Irritated and dry skin when the temperature changes
- Tightness, itchiness or stinging/burning sensation after cleansing
MODERN LIFESTYLE THAT CAN INCREASES SKIN SENSITIVITY
If you have sensitive skin, don’t worry because you are not alone. There are many others who suffer from these symptoms as well.
An increasing number of people suffer from sensitive skin conditions like acne, eczema and other skin problems because of a stressful lifestyle and constant exposure to many pollutants and chemicals.
Let’s look at some of the common triggers for sensitive skin and their recommended treatment.
Working or sleeping in air-conditioned rooms always retains your skin’s moisture by using a good moisturizer. For those with sensitive skin, use a moisturizer that is pH-balanced and recommended by dermatologists.
Long and hot showers showering under hot water for a long time can be very drying for the skin. Use warm instead of hot water and take shorter showers.
Unsuitable skincare products if you have an allergic reaction, stop using all skincare products immediately except that certified safe for sensitive skin. Allow your skin to recover for 2 – 4 weeks and meanwhile seek professional help.
It is a myth that sensitive skin cannot be treated. Many believe this and thus suffer in silence with their sensitive skin problems.
THE SUN IS THE BIGGEST FOE OF SENSITIVE SKIN
A school-going child’s skin needs tender care. As babies grow up, their skin needs continued care. Keep them out of the sun.
For children with normal healthy skin, there is no necessity to apply skincare products on a regular basis. But recognizing the impact that the environment may have on the skin is more important.
When children play outdoors or go swimming on a sunny day, they should wear appropriate clothing and protective eyewear. A broad-spectrum sunscreen and protective eyewear with a high sun protection factor should be applied to the skin.

To find out how strong the sun is, you look at your shadow. If it is shorter than you, you may burn quickly. If it is longer than you, you are safe. So short shadow, seek the shade of the umbrella.
Parents should also be aware that a change in the climate may have a significant impact on the skin. If they go on a holiday with their children to a country with a cold or dry climate, regular and frequent use of moisturizers would be advisable.
In a humid environment, children do not need to use moisturizers unless they have skin problems like eczema.
Eczema can make the life of school children uncomfortable. They may scratch their inflamed skin, and this may distract them and their classmates.
Teachers should seat children with eczema away from sunny windows.
An air-conditioned environment may be cool but dry – and dryness can pose a problem too.
While there is no immediate cure for children with sensitive skin, most will eventually outgrow that sensitivity.
Until then, special attention must be paid to the child’s skin until natural remission occurs. Common irritants such as strong soap and medication applied to the skin must be avoided.
Non-irritant soap with moisturizer is preferred. Chlorine in the swimming pool is not a problem but wash thoroughly after leaving the pool.
Contrary to popular belief, children with sensitive skin seldom have any food allergies.
However, healthy skin needs a healthy diet. A balanced, nutritious diet will help to promote normal growth and maintenance of the skin. But more is not necessarily better. You can’t make normal sin better by taking mega doses of vitamins and minerals.
A poor diet will lead to a lack of nutrients. Depending on which nutrients are lacking, this may result in skin problems like rashes, itch, dryness, easy bruising poor wound healing, pallor, changes in skin pigmentation or sore lips and mouth.
