All About Sensitive Skin
What is Sensitive Skin
Sensitive skin refers to skin that is easily irritated and causes some discomfort. When the external environment changes, the skin cannot adjust, and uncomfortable feelings and allergies appear. Sensitive skin can be divided into three types: dry skin, oily skin, and mixed skin.
Characteristics of Sensitive Skin
The skin is thin, delicate and fair, with less sebum secretion, drier, and obvious capillaries. The skin appears dry and the ability to retain moisture is reduced, and the sebum film on the skin surface is not formed completely.
Contact with cosmetics or seasonal allergies can easily cause skin allergies, redness, swelling and itching. The skin lacks luster, and the cheeks are prone to hyperemia and redness.
Due to seasonal changes, the skin tends to be unstable. The main symptoms are itching, burning, tingling, itchy skin and small rashes.
It is easily affected by external environment or substances such as cold wind, food, water quality, ultraviolet rays, synthetic fibers, fragrances, and pigments.
When exposed to irritating substances, it can cause skin problems. It can cause allergies to sunlight, climate, water, plants (pollen), cosmetics, perfume, mosquito bites and high-protein foods.
Types of Sensitive Skin
Dry sensitive skin
No matter what the season, the skin is always dry and rough. When you apply the lotion, you will feel a little tingling, itching, and sometimes redness. People with these symptoms are dry and sensitive skin. The cause of skin allergies is that the skin is dry, which reduces the defense function, and sufficient moisture is enough.
Oily sensitive skin
Acne and small particles are prone to appear on the face, red, swollen, and inflamed. Even cheeks and other areas that are prone to dryness can also develop acne. Experts say people with these symptoms should have oily sensitive skin. Sensitivity is caused by excessive sebum adhesion and insufficient moisture, which causes the skin's protective function to decrease. Just remove the excess sebum and fully moisturize it.
Stress sensitive skin
Before the seasons change and before the menstrual period, cosmetics and skin care products will become inapplicable. As long as there is insufficient sleep or stress, the skin will become dry. People with these symptoms should belong to stress-sensitive skin. The reason lies in endocrine disorders caused by various external stimuli or hormonal imbalances.
Permanently sensitive skin
Sensitive skin is like allergic dermatitis or abnormally sensitive sources such as sunlight, spices, and pigments. Specific irritants (allergens) cause allergic reactions. If you still follow your daily maintenance methods, it will be very dangerous. The best way is to go to a dermatology clinic immediately and use the Beimu Shumin ointment recommended by your doctor.

Dust allergy is an allergic reaction of microorganisms living in dust and is the most common allergy. Dust allergies include cotton fiber, fur and various fibers, animal fur and so on.
Perhaps aging is an important reason for skin sensitivity. Young and healthy skin has a weakly acidic sebum film on the surface, which retains moisture to protect the skin from external aggressions. However, with age, this sebum film is not as healthy as before, so that some sensitive substances can easily invade the skin.
Sensitive skin is prone to allergies from the fur of domestic pets. The cause of this pet allergy is mainly the protein secreted by the fat glands of cats and dogs. When pets lick the fur, these proteins get on the fur, then scattered into the air and attached to people. Caused by the skin.
