How Beauty Products May Make Skin Sensitive
If you have sensitive skin, you probably know all too well how it feels when something irritates it. And that can happen all too easily if you use the wrong beauty product—and by wrong product, we mean a cleanser, moisturizer, cosmetic, or other agent that causes an unfavorable reaction. Certain things can cause tightness, redness, burning, stinging, roughness or even just a sensation of discomfort. Sensitive skin may also itch or get dry and flaky when you use certain products that irritate it. Essentially, your skin is signaling that it dislikes the exposure to certain chemicals or ingredients, and it’s giving you a sign that it would prefer that you stop using them.
The best way to prevent those uncomfortable or even painful sensations is to learn what causes them and then avoid them.
