Sensitive skin is a broad term for skin types with reduced tolerance to irritants of any kind. The main causes are genetics, environment and age. Redness, inflammation, flaky skin and itchiness are the common symptoms of sensitive skin and are usually triggered by external factors including perfumes, skin nasties (parabens, SLS's etc), harsh chemicals & over cleansing (stripping the skin's protective barrier).
The spectrum of sensitivity can be different for each person. Environmentally sensitive skin may become red and angry as a result of air pollution or weather changes, while reactive skin only becomes inflamed once it comes into contact with a specific irritant, or if the skin is stripped.
Frequent, severe and painful irritation of the skin can sometimes be linked to underlying conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, rosacea or psoriasis. In these instances, it’s important to seek medical attention from a doctor or dermatologist.

The key ingredients to calm Sensitive Skin
Choose a cleanser that is mild and gentle with moisturising and soothing properties derived from coconut oil.
The antioxident Vitamin B3 is an excellent choice for sensitive skin as it strengthens the skin's protective barrier and improves its resilience. Antioxidants that fight free radicals caused by UV rays and other environmental aggressors, will work to protect the skin.
Omega 3 fatty acids help to restore the skin's health, strengthening and repairing the lipid barrier. The topical application of essential fatty acids such as Omega 3 has also been linked to reducing skin sensitivity, while also nourishing and calming irritated skin.
And always, always use products containing no nasties (parabens, SLS'S, etc.) as these chemicals are known to cause sensitivity.
