Anyone with sensitive skin knows the struggles with redness brought on by internal and external factors . Though most people think about experiencing skin redness in the summer, it can actually happen all year round. Sunburn and excessive heat can explain redness in the warmer months however your skin can become more red and sensitive in the cooler months. The cooler air combined with indoor heating can make many people's skin dry, irritated and potentially more sensitive. Fluctuating hormones (periods and menopause) can also contribute to the skins overall redness and sensitivity.
Skin sensitivity and redness can be inflamed by the things you eat and drink too. A healthy balanced diet rich in essential fatty acids can help combat inflammation. Increasing your water intake and limiting your alcohol and caffeine will help overcome some of the symptoms associated with redness.
