Which oil(s) should be used for sensitive skin prone to redness?

Irritations, redness or itching? These symptoms characterise sensitive skin. True sources of discomfort, these signs should be alleviated, or even eliminated, through the use of a treatment compatible with the skin type. The vegetable oils are among the solutions suitable for a beauty ritual for sensitive skin.

What are the characteristics of sensitive skin?

Sensitive or intolerant skin is not a skin type, but rather a skin condition. Highly reactive, sensitive skin is prone to tingling, prickling, sensations of heat or even burning, and more rarely, itching. These unpleasant symptoms can sometimes be accompanied by redness. These feelings of discomfort are triggered in response to stimuli of different nature, which would not generally cause irritation. These triggering factors can be: the use of unsuitable skincare products, excessive hygiene, stress, pollutants, sun, hormonal changes or climatic variations. This heightened skin sensitivity can be explained when the skin's protective barrier function is impaired. The skin then becomes permeable to potentially irritating agents (microorganisms, allergens, pollutants, etc.) and dehydrates. Without a thorough diagnosis, it can be difficult to detect sensitive skin.

Which plant oils should be adopted for sensitive skin?

Therefore, sensitive skin needs to be soothed, nourished, and protected. Very gentle and well-tolerated, vegetable oils are ideal for daily care of delicate skin. They help to restore the comfort of sensitive skin. To regain skin without tightness or redness, one would opt for hazelnut and hemp oils.

  • Hazelnut Vegetable Oil:

Thehazelnut vegetable oil, due to its strong penetrating power, is an excellent moisturising, nourishing and softening oil. The skin will then become more supple and softer. Moreover, it does not leave a greasy sensation on the surface. Restorative, it will also promote the regeneration of the skin's hydrolipidic film, which will help to soften the skin and protect it from external aggressions. As a regulator of sebum secretion, thehazelnut oil will even tighten the skin's pores to prevent any infections that would threaten the skin's balance. However, this oil is contraindicated for people with allergies.

  • The vegetable oil of hemp:

Thehemp seed oil is suitable for sensitive skin. This oil is very gentle and quickly penetrates the epidermis, without leaving a greasy finish. The issue with sensitive skin is that it reacts very easily to the slightest aggressions (redness, itching, irritation, etc...). However, thehemp oil has an anti-inflammatory, softening and soothing action to repair, relieve and calm skin reactions thanks to its high content of vitamin E, omega-3 and 6. Being emollient, it also nourishes and protects the skin from dehydration.
