What Causes Sensitive Skin?

What Causes Sensitive Skin? - Acne Intelligence

Taking care of your skin is no joke. It’s why consumers take so much into consideration before trying a new product, and why we believe customized skincare is so important. The circumstances of one person’s skin will never be the same as another’s, and their skincare solution shouldn’t be either. One thing many people have in common? Sensitive skin.


In fact, a recent dermatological study found approximately 60% of survey respondents worldwide reported having sensitive skin. Add that to the fact that many of those people are dealing with acne breakouts, and it’s no wonder so many of us stress about our skin. 


In some cases, skin sensitivity, or skin reactions, can be more severe, in which case a doctor visit and diagnosis are recommended. For others, it is important to understand what your skin is telling you by determining what external factors or habits are causing your sensitive skin. 


What is Sensitive Skin?


Skin sensitivity can apply to anyone who experiences changes in their skin condition or skin comfort from the introduction of new products, hormonal changes, or environmental factors. While some skin sensitivity is paired with other conditions like eczema or psoriasis, many individuals simply notice their skin changes easily when their life does. In these cases, understanding your triggers can help to keep your sensitive skin calm and happy while still targeting breakouts. 


Exposure to the Sun 


A day out in the sun may fill you with some much-needed vitamin D, but too much sun exposure can wreak havoc on your skin. This is especially so when you have yet to include an SPF in your morning routine. Sound familiar? For many of us, exposure to the sun can cause longer-lasting skin sensitivity long after the redness disappears. By including an SPF daily you can avoid the added sensitivity this causes.




Even without the added anxiety of the recent stay-at-home orders, life in general can be stressful. For many of those with sensitive skin, this change in hormonal balance can cause a shift and may be the root cause of your issues. This sensitivity is often paired with more oil and, unfortunately, more breakouts.




If your skin isn’t getting the hydration it needs, it’s likely you may experience an increase in sensitivity. This can be caused by the weather, an unhealthy diet, or certain lifestyle choices like drinking too much caffeine. Dehydration means your skin is inadequately retaining water and is likely to react negatively.
