What is Skin Desensitising?

Why might I want to have my skin desensitised?

Women and men can both suffer due to sensitive skin. Sensitive skin is common enough that there are whole lines of beauty and makeup products just for people with sensitive skin. But a lot of the best products are expensive, and there’s no guarantee that you won’t breakout or have a bad reaction to a product, even if it’s meant for someone like you. Skin desensitising treatments help to reduce the sensitivity of skin to outside as well as internal effects. Skin desensitising can stop your skin from reacting to environmental triggers, leaving it healthy and young looking.

Products for Skin Desensitising

Sensitive skin will often react with inflammation, redness, or other signs of irritation. Nobody likes to wake up with splotchy red skin. Skin desensitising products that you can buy over the counter may help to reduce the reactive nature of sensitive skin.

Some of recently popular skin desensitising products include coconut oil, propolis, shea butter, bisabol oil, or neroli oil. All of these products have strong antibacterial or antiseptic properties and also act as balancing moisturisers. However, it’s important to try new products slowly. Use a small amount on a small part of your skin, perhaps even on your inner wrist at first, to ensure you don’t have a negative reaction. You can also buy skin desensitising serums which may be better for highly sensitive skin.

Professional Skin Desensitising Treatments

If you’d rather forego the risk of a bad reaction at home, you can also have professional skin desensitising treatments at a beauty parlour. Certain facials are formulated to reduce sensitivity in a safe and gentle way. Skin will be properly cleansed and then treated with effective, nourishing moisturisers which reduce skin sensitivity. Often the treatment will include naturally hydrating and antibacterial ingredients in proper proportion for sensitive skin.

Sensitive skin can be painful or uncomfortable, but it can also simply look splotchy, red, and uneven. If you suffer from sensitive skin, there are skin desensitising treatments available. There are many, many people who have suffered from sensitive skin before you and found relief and help from skin desensitising treatments and products.
