If you have sensitive skin, you may have suffered from adverse reactions to a wide range of beauty and household products in the past. The stinging, burning, redness or tightness caused by contact with these products, or even a feeling of discomfort after using them, are part of what dermatologists consider when diagnosing sensitive skin. The other factors that dermatologists consider include visible skin reactions such as skin bumps, erosions or pustules or even a tendency towards skin flushing or blushing.
Causes of Sensitive Skin
Some of the causes of sensitive skin can include skin disorders such as rosacea, eczema but are more commonly caused by allergic contact dermatitis — when your skin is touched by something that irritates it, or when skin is overly dry and cannot properly protect your nerve endings. Excessive heat and cold can also damage the skin and cause excessive sensitivity.
How to Care for Sensitive Skin
Different people respond to different triggers, but some of the most common are “deodorant” soap or soap that contains a high degree of fragrance or strong detergents. Moisturizing products and those that contain little or no fragrance, antibacterial ingredients, alcohol or deodorant ingredients are also a safer bet for those with sensitive skin. If you are using or testing out a new product and you have known skin sensitivities, your best option is to put the product on a small patch of skin behind your ear and leave it there overnight. If you are okay in the morning, you will probably be able to apply it safely to your face with no adverse reactions. You can also help support your sensitive skin by keeping your home at a reasonable temperature in the winter and not overheating it, using soap-free cleansers and lowering the temperature of your baths and showers from hot to warm to limit the drying effects on your skin. Be sure you always go out with a hat in the summer, wear sunscreen and limit your overall sun exposure. Tanning with Hempz Sunless line of self-tanning products is a great way to get the glow that you want without risking damage to your sensitive skin from the sun.
Hempz Products, Just Naked
Just a few years ago, Hempz reformulated their entire line of products to be paraben free, and utilize far fewer petrochemical ingredients — all aimed at improving the overall sustainability and excellence of the popular product lines. The new line of Hempz lotion, Hempz body wash, and Hempz body balm took this one step further, by pulling out any hint or whisper of fragrance or dye. These “naked” versions of the highly popular Hempz products will keep your sensitive skin safe from these chemicals, and will also benefit those who simply prefer an unscented product because of personal preference. Always cruelty free, the Hempz line of natural products containing 100% hemp is gluten-free to ensure that there are no adverse reactions of any type.
Hempz Sensitive Skin Herbal Body Moisturizer
Hempz Herbal Body Moisturizer is the #1 selling moisturizer available in North American salons, Cannabis sativa (hemp) seed oil contains over 80% EFAs (essential fatty acids) by volume, allowing the hempseed oil to directly enter the lipid layers of dry skin, quickly replenishing missing oils. Only 100% certified organic, cold-pressed hemp seed oil is used for Hempz Moisturizer products, all refined in Canada.
Hempz Sensitive Skin Herbal Body Moisturizer is the newest lotion that is enhanced with 100% pure, natural hemp seed oil blended with a calming oatmeal complex to keep your skin soft and supple all day long.
