Why is My Skin So Sensitive?

Posted by Opus Int. on

Is your skin red and/or itchy?

Do you have a lot of skin bumps or rashes?

Does your skin sting or burn a lot?

Then you have sensitive skin.

If you’re wondering why it happens, worry not! Below, we’ll answer what you’ve been asking for a long time: “Why is my skin so sensitive?”

  1. You Have Been Exposed to Harmful Environmental Conditions

While the skin is made to protect the body from the environment, exposure to the following conditions can make it more sensitive:

  • Excessive sunlight
  • Strong winds
  • Intense heat or cold

These can cause excessive dryness or injury, compromise the skin, and make it prone to irritation.

  1. You Suffer From a Skin Condition

The following disorders or allergic reactions can trigger skin sensitivity:

  • Eczema or atopic dermatitis, a condition that makes skin swollen and rough
  • Rosacea, an inflammatory disease that causes skin redness and rashes
  • Allergic contact dermatitis, a condition that results from the use of a particular substance
  1. Your Genetics Are To Blame

Some people are more predisposed to have easily-irritated skin. So if you have fair skin or red hair, you’re more likely to ask the question, “Why is my skin so sensitive?”

  1. You Are Using the Wrong Product

If you have reactive skin, using the wrong product can damage your skin’s outer layer and irritate it further. Here are some common offenders that you need to avoid:

  • Alpha-hydroxy acids such as glycolic acid
  • Granulated scrubs
  • Chemical sunscreens containing Oxybenzone or Avobenzone
  1. You’re Going Overboard With Your Skincare Routine

As Mark Twain puts it, “Too much of something is bad.” This is especially true if you have sensitive skin. 

For one, using several products all at once means you’re exposing your skin to more ingredients. The more components you apply, the higher the chance that something will irritate your skin. 

Furthermore, you may end up applying two (or more) potent ingredients that damage the skin when used together (i.e., Retinol/Retinoid and Alpha Hydroxy Acid). 

What to Do

If you’re not careful, your actions will trigger your skin sensitivity. So to keep the redness, itchiness, and irritation away, remember to follow these tips:

  • Avoid environmental extremes, such as excessive winds, heat, or cold 
  • Use sunscreen regularly
  • Stay away from your eczema or rosacea triggers
  • Wear fabrics that don’t irritate the skin, such as cotton, silk, rayon, or linen
  • Eat well

More importantly, make it a point to use products specially formulated for sensitive skin. You can get these - and more - at Janssen Cosmetics.

How Janssen Can Protect Your Skin and Keep it Healthy

Posted by Matthew Eng on

Many are looking for the fountain of youth through the latest photo filters or even plastic surgery. But what many don’t know is that the secret to beautiful, long-lasting skin is a consistent regimen designed to protect your skin and keep it healthy. Janssen Cosmetics provides top of the line skincare products that leave your skin beautiful from the inside out. Here’s how you can incorporate our products into your daily routine:  

Cleansing

Cleansing is the first and most important step in your skincare regimen. Without it, you are just asking for a breakout to happen. This is especially important if you wear makeup on a daily basis. You need a clean slate free of oil and dirt to be able to absorb subsequent products properly. Opt for a gentle cleanser that won’t strip away the natural oils from your face. Make sure to wash your face twice daily.

Some products to consider:

  • Mild Creamy Cleanser. Excellent cleanser for dry skin. It is thorough, helps retain moisture, and leaves your skin feeling clean.
  • Clarifying Cleansing Gel. Mild cleansing gel for oily skin. It is specially formulated to tackle excess oil, inflammation, spots, and blackheads.

Toning

Toners are the next products you might want to reach for after you cleanse your face. Contrary to popular belief, toners are actually very gentle on the skin, and they don’t shrink pores. They provide you with a bit of initial hydration and further prime your skin to absorb other products later on. Unlike the other steps in the process, toners are optional. They used to be needed back when facial cleansers were too basic or harsh on the skin. Toners helped bring the skin’s pH back to normal. Nowadays, cleansers are well-formulated enough that toners aren’t as necessary anymore.

Some products to consider:

  • Radiant Firming Tonic. Helps to smooth out the appearance of your skin and refine your pores. You can use this toner and be confident that your skin is ready to face whatever comes next.
  • Purifying Tonic Lotion. Optimized for oily skin. It helps to prevent inflammation, blackheads, and excess oil production.

Exfoliating

At night, you also want to add in exfoliation as an extra step into your skincare process. While you might not realize it, your skin also has its own battles throughout the day. At the end of the day, it is filled with dead skin and clogged with impurities. The cleansing and exfoliating steps help to take this load off.

Some products to consider:

Moisturizing

The next absolutely essential step next is moisturizing. Like cleansing, you want to apply moisturizer twice daily, even if you have oily or acne-prone skin. It keeps your skin barrier healthy and lets the products you’ve applied before work their magic! If possible, apply moisturizer while your skin is still damp. This helps lock in extra hydration in addition to the hydration provided by the moisturizer itself.

Some products to consider:

  • Day Vitalizer. Daily moisturizing cream that hydrates, smoothes, and protects dry skin.
  • Clarifying Cream Gel. With this gel, those with oily skin can worry less about inflammation, oil, and blemishes.

Protecting

Last but not least, you want to seal the deal with sunscreen when finishing off your morning skincare routine. Sunscreen acts like a shield for your face, preventing UV rays from penetrating through. This is also a non-negotiable step. Sunscreen is vital to the longevity and health of your skin. It helps prevent skin cancer and premature aging down the line.

Some products to consider:

  • Face Guard Advanced. Although this is an emulsion and not technically a sunscreen, it protects all skin types from UVA, UVB, IR, oxidative stress, photoaging, and many more.
  • Sun Shield SPF 30. Sunscreen with SPF 30 that protects skin from UVA and UVB rays.
