Sensitive Skin

What is sensitive skin?

While some lucky people are able to apply any products to their skin without experiencing problems, others are not so fortunate. Cosmetics, skincare treatments and even toiletries can cause stinging, redness, tightness, breakouts and a variety of nasty reactions. If you have sensitive, skin it is important to choose skincare treatments which do not feature potential irritants including fragrances, anti-bacterial ingredients, alcohol, retinoids and alpha-hydroxy acids.

What are the causes of sensitive skin?

Sensitive skin can be caused by a variety of underlying conditions including eczema, rosacea, or allergic contact dermatitis. Excessively dry, injured or sun damaged skin may also become sensitive but for most people there is no logical explanation for the reactions they experience. Genetics, age and race all play a role in how your skin reacts to the products that you use.

How to take care of sensitive skin

If you are experiencing bad reactions to your skincare products, switch to gentle formulas for sensitive skin. This should help you moving forward but if your skin is frequently affected by unexpected issues or environmental factors, our sensitive skin treatments will really help.
