WHAT CAUSES SKIN SENSITIVITY

EXTERNAL FACTORS

  1. Shaving – Shaving leaves micro-lesions which can easily become inflamed and leading to redness.
  2. Cold and Wind – Cold air can dehydrate you more than usual and can increase your skin's sensitivity.
  3. UV Radiation - Exposure to the sun, even in small amounts, can damage your skin's natural barrier.
  4. Dirt and Pollution - Pollution in the air sticks to your skin and can irritate and weaken the skin’s natural barrier, leaving your skin feeling sensitive.

INTERNAL FACTORS

  1. Stress - Regardless of the source, stress throws your hormones into chaos and can reduce your skin’s ability to maintain and repair its natural barrier.
  2. Allergies - While skin sensitivity and allergies are not necessarily the same thing, there may be certain products, foods or pollens that make your skin extra sensitive.

TIPS FOR SOOTHING SENSITIVE SKIN

For comfortable and healthy looking skin

  1. Shave with the grain to avoid ingrown hairs and razor burn.
  2. Use Alcohol Free After Shave Balms to help calm your skin by sealing and healing micro cuts, without stinging or burning sensations.
  3. Hydration is even more important when you have sensitive skin. Use moisturisers to keep your skin nourished and strengthen its natural barriers to protect against skin irritation. Don’t forget to hydrate yourself with water and snack on vegetables with a high-water content.
  4. Wear sunscreen every day to protect your skin from sun damage, UVA and UVB rays.
  5. In the colder months, try to avoid overly hot showers, dry heated rooms and exposure to extreme winds. These elements will dry out your skin and make it more sensitive.

POWERFUL SKINCARE INGREDIENTS THAT FIGHT SKIN IRRITATION

The alcohol-free* formulas with Chamomile and Vitamin E make your skin feel comfortable and smooth, all day long. Whilst Chamomile helps to calm the skin, Vitamin E helps to nourish and protect your skin from damage caused by free radicals.
Chamomile

Chamomile

Chamomile is a herb which helps to calm, heal and soothe sensitive skin. It contains high levels of antioxidants, which anti-inflammatory properties, helping to alleviate redness and relieve inflammation. The nutrients in Chamomile are also known to decrease the signs of ageing and improving the appearance of wrinkles, by speeding up the cell regeneration process.

Oil

Vitamin E

Vitamin E oil moisturises your skin to prevent and treat flaky dry skin. The nourishing moisture helps to ease itching and minimise irritation. Vitamin E also contains anti-oxidant properties which help fight inflammation like chamomile, thus the two ingredients work together to help relieve your skin from the 5 signs of skin irritation.
