Maintaining The Skin

Posted by Edge


When your skin is sensitive, it can be difficult to figure out what to do. There's no one-size-fits-all solution, but first, what really is sensitive skin?

Sensitive skin is the common condition of feeling easily irritated or uncomfortable when exposed to external stimuli such as heat, cold, moisture, sunlight, and chemicals. Sensitive skin types often notice irritation after coming into contact with strong-scented soaps or shampoos, certain fabrics, makeup, detergents, and a number of other common substances.

Because the causes of sensitivity are so varied, there isn’t a straightforward solution—but there are some steps you can take to help yourself to get started on the right track.

First, it is important to determine what is causing your skin sensitivity.

This can be tricky because there are many different causes of sensitivity—some of which may only last for a few hours or days, while others can last for months or even years at a time.

Once you've identified the cause of your sensitivity, try to avoid it as much as possible. If this isn't possible (for example, if you're allergic to dust mites), then try to limit your exposure as best as possible.


When you have sensitive skin, it doesn't mean that you cannot use skincare products.

In fact, there are many that are designed to treat sensitive skin. Here are some:
