Skin sensitivity can be painful, stressful, and difficult to manage. With age, our bodies begin to slow down and change, and this also applies to our skin. Paul Jarrod Frank, a board-certified dermatologist, tells Byrdie, “Sensitive skin can be an ongoing condition caused by a treatment, age, or biological skin disorder.”

Per Cleveland Clinic, as we get older, our skin loses its elasticity and thickness. Once the surface layer begins to thin and flatten, the skin becomes more transparent and fragile. As it thins, it has less padding, which makes it much more sensitive and vulnerable to various injuries. The sebaceous glands produce less oil as time goes on too, which leaves the skin vulnerable to dryness and itchiness (via Medline Plus). All of these changes mean that the skin becomes more prone to bruising, bleeding, redness, irritation, rashes, and more. It also may take your skin longer to heal from injuries than it previously would have.
