The Tips Of Sensitive Skin Care In Spring

For many people, spring means everything grows, birds and flowers.
But for sensitive skin people, spring is not very friendly, the changeable climate makes them easy to allergy pollen and cause many skin problems.
Now we will give some tips of sensitive skin care in spring.
What Is Sensitive Skin
First, sensitive skin is an unhealthy skin condition, not a skin disease.
Sensitive skin specifically refers to a subjective high response state of the skin under physiological or pathological conditions, including burning, tingling, itching and tightness.
Its production is due to the damage of the skin barrier function, which causes the increase of sensory nerve afferent signals, which leads to the enhancement of the skin's responsiveness to external stimuli, and triggers the skin immune inflammatory response, which involves the complex process of skin barrier-neurovascular-immune inflammation.
The Difference Between Sensitive And Allergy
Sensitive skin is different from skin irritation and allergies that we often say.
Sensitivity is a state of skin, which means you will be in a state of being in a state for a long time. As long as there are external stimuli, whether it is spring and autumn, or various cosmetics, it will make you uncomfortable.
Skin allergies are not the same, it is not necessarily caused by the strong irritation of cosmetics. Some people use it fine, and some people will be allergic to it. It is an acute and chronic inflammatory response induced by skin contact with certain specific substances.
The Tips Of Sensitive Skin Care In Spring
The first is prevention. For sensitive skin, preventing damage to the skin barrier function is the first priority.
Therefore, for sensitive skin, products should not be used indiscriminately, including the use of various powerful ingredients, such as unreasonable acid brushing. In addition, choose safe and gentle skin care products and avoid stimulating harmful ingredients, such as products containing MIT (methylisothiazolinone), and throw them as far as possible.
In cleaning, choose mild cleansing products and avoid skin barrier damage caused by unsuitable surface active products.
For dry and sensitive skin, you can choose an amino acid-based facial cleanser, which is formulated with a variety of amino acids to work together to decontaminate..
For oil-sensitive skin, you can choose products containing alkyl glycosides, because alkyl glycosides can maintain good mildness while cleaning oil well.
UV rays are also one of the causes of sensitive skin.
Therefore, sunscreen is also indispensable. You can choose products containing physical sunscreens or chemical sunscreens with relatively large molecular weights to protect sensitive skin from the loss of ultraviolet rays.
For dry and sensitive skin, you can choose mild and moisturizing sunscreen products, and adding antioxidants (vitamin C, vitamin E and coenzyme Q10, etc.) can reduce the oxidative damage caused by ultraviolet rays to sensitive skin. Add an emollient oil, such as squalane.
For oily skin, you can choose a physical sunscreen product, which avoids the potential irritation that chemical sunscreens may cause, and leaves the skin feeling fresh and non-greasy.
Sensitive skin is caused by a compromised skin barrier or an overreaction of the skin's nerves.
For those with damaged skin barrier, products containing ingredients similar to skin lipids can be selected.
Thereby improving the barrier function and water-locking ability of sensitive skin.
For skin and nerve overreaction, you can choose products containing 4-tert-butylcyclohexanol.
Because TRPV1 is a key guard responsible for guarding the gate in various channels of the skin's neural response, if TRPV1 runs rampant (activated by various external physicochemical factors), it is easy to produce a series of sensitivity-related symptoms. And this 4-tert-butylcyclohexanol can soothe TRPV1, thereby reducing the tingling and burning sensation of the skin.
In the end, for sensitive skin, prevention is far more efficient and economical than taking care of sensitive skin after it occurs.
