What jewelry is suitable for your skin if you have sensitive skin? Reactive skin.

We get lost with all these terms, Dr. Orit Markowitz, dermatologist helps us understand these generic terms a little better.

What are the typical signs of sensitive skin?

“If someone thinks they have sensitive skin, they have most likely experienced the reactions,” says Dr. Markowitz.
This sensitivity can also be seen with the naked eye, in fact "when the skin is irritated or has an allergic reaction, redness appears, and flaking too".
The epidermis of sensitive skin feels attacked and sends alarm signals which are manifested by these sensations of discomfort.
In other words, sensitive skin is skin that reacts to several factors, it is mainly a question of discomfort and perceptions.
The first sign you should take into consideration is You!

What types of jewelry if I have sensitive skin?

The key to irritation-free accessories is knowing what types of metal alloys you might be allergic to. Once you know this, it is much easier to choose your jewelry purchases including silver plated pieces.

The number one culprit known to cause a skin reaction is nickel or one of nickel's cross-reactants, cobalt. They are often found in silver jewelry rather than gold or platinum.

Stainless steel, which is very allergenic, is a good alternative because the quantity of nickel is very low or even non-existent, and the strength of the steel prevents the release of nickel and therefore irritation of the skin.

What should you avoid when buying jewelry?

You should avoid allergens in jewelry, says Dr. Markowitz.
“If you know you tend to react to certain metals, try staying away from them.
For example, if you know your skin reacts to nickel, try to avoid the silver family.

If your skin ever reacts the best over-the-counter treatment is 1% hydrocortisone ointment, says Dr. Markowitz."

The real barometer to evaluate your sensitivity, the reactivity of your skin, is your perception, YOUR SENSATIONS.
