The particular nature of sensitive skin is that it reacts more quickly or more strongly than normal skin to the same factors under the same conditions. This results in unpleasant sensations (pulling, tingling, itching…), even redness and dryness sometimes.
They are complex. The skin is an organ that plays several roles and therefore different types of abnormalities can lead to skin sensitivity: lesions in the corneum layer disturb its barrier function, hypervascularization causes redness…
Even when the skin is sensitive, it is possible to reduce its sensitivity by eliminating the skin care products that it cannot tolerate and replacing them with specific products that are well tolerated and formulated with powerful moisturizers for the corneum layer.
For cleansing, it is recommended to use dermatological bars and soapless cleansers in order not to aggress the skin. As far as moisturizing, use products that contain a limited number of ingredients to reduce risks of irritation.

People who think they have allergic skin often have very sensitive skin, even intolerant skin which overreacts to certain products, topical medications, dermo-cosmetic cleansers or moisturizers. An allergy is caused by an immune response. The symptoms include red patches with small eczema blisters, strong itching, swelling and oozing pruritus that is sometimes severe.la toilette, de préférence des pains dermatologiques ou soins nettoyants sans savon, pour ne pas agresser la peau.

Your physician can advise you in selecting cleansing and moisturizers best suited for your skin type. Look for products that do not contain any known irritating or allergenic ingredients and offer a high tolerance confirmed by clinical tests.
