There are many issues that can cause sensitive skin that include: 

  • Environment/seasonal changes - The environment greatly affects your skin. Indoor heat and winter can leave skin dehydrated and sensitive, while exposure to the sun can damage the skin's barrier. In addition, dirt and pollution leave the skin's natural balance weakened and unable to do its job properly. 
  • Water - hard water contains high levels of minerals leaving skin feeling irritated. 
  • Products - Excess cleansing with the wrong or harsh products can actually cause skin to be damaged and sore. Ingredients such as artificial perfumes, dyes and harsh chemicals are known to irritate the skin. Selecting the right products can improve the function of the skin's barrier and reduce sensitivity.
