Sensitive skin is a common issue experienced by men and women alike. It can be especially troublesome to find a skincare routine that doesn’t cause your skin to flare up. You might feel like no matter what you do, your skin will end up blotchy, tight, dry, and altogether uncomfortable. Though scented lotions and frilly bath bombs may never be on your side, there is still hope for achieving the wonderfully smooth, radiant skin of your dreams!
Customizing the right treatment plan for your skin will allow you to work around the root cause of your sensitive skin and uncover a more confident you in no time. Read on to discover reasons your skin may be overly reactive and how to accommodate it in order to achieve your natural glow.

Common Causes of Sensitive Skin
Not all sensitive skin is made the same. There are various reasons your skin may be acting up, but they all fall within two categories: objective and subjective.
Objective signs include physical changes that are able to be observed such as redness, swelling, rashes or acne. Subjective symptoms encompass uncomfortable feelings such as itching, burning or pain on the skin. Both are equally bothersome, but equally treatable! Before finding your ideal treatment, let’s talk about a few common reasons most people experience sensitive skin.
Clogged pores: we all get them, but some more than others. If you struggle with chronic acne, it’s possible you’ve tried what feels like every topical cream known to man, and nothing seems to do the trick.
It’s one thing to have pesky seasonal allergies, and another to have topical skin reactions such as hives and eczema every time you encounter pollen. When your skin breaks out in an allergic reaction, your body tries to protect itself by releasing T-cells, which can lead to redness and itching.
Rosacea is a skin condition that causes flushing and redness in the center of your face. With Rosacea, you typically can’t tolerate a variety of skin products and may even notice environmental triggers like sun exposure or temperature extremes.
As Alaskans, it’s safe to say we are all familiar with dry skin. Dry winter air can be enough to trigger a skin sensitivity as it causes an irritating itch that can potentially put you at risk for developing another skin condition.

Photo rejuvenation is a skin treatment that uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to treat skin conditions such as rosacea, superficial blood vessels, sunspots or age spots and other signs of aging. This non-surgical, non-invasive treatment is quick and effective in improving your skin’s overall appearance and quality.
Chemical peels are used to remove damaged skin cells, uncovering healthy, glowing skin underneath. They can be used to treat things such as acne scars, uneven skin tone or redness, wrinkles and fine lines, sun damage, and more. Your chemical peel will be tailored to meet your individual needs.
Dermaplaning is a painless and non-invasive procedure that removes the dead surface skin, leaving you with a radiantly smooth complexion. This treatment is a form of manual exfoliation, which is great for those with sensitive skin!
