SENSITIVE SKIN

MOST STUDIES REPORT THAT 50-70% OF THE POPULATION IDENTIFY THEMSELVES AS HAVING “SENSITIVE SKIN”.

People with sensitive skin tend to experience adverse reactions more easily and intensely when exposed to various irritants or allergens. The exact reasons for sensitive skin can vary from person to person including environmental factors, lifestyle changes, sensitivity to skincare ingredients, allergies etc.

SENSITIVE SKIN DIFFERS FROM NORMAL SKIN

Thin or damaged skin barrier

The outermost layer of the skin, called the stratum corneum, acts as a protective barrier against environmental factors and moisture loss.

Hyperreactivity of nerve endings

Individuals with sensitive skin may have nerve endings that are more sensitive and responsive to stimuli, causing mild irritants to be more painful or irritating.

Increased skin permeability

Sensitive skin may have higher permeability, meaning that substances can penetrate more easily through the skin's layers.

Deficient natural moisturising factors

Sensitive skin might lack certain natural moisturising factors, such as ceramides and fatty acids, which are essential for maintaining the skin's hydration and protection.

In extreme cases sensitive skin can affect our quality of life and while we cannot control all contributing factors, simply switching to natural skincare can have a significant positive change. Ingredients commonly found in conventional skincare products, such as fragrances, preservatives, and harsh chemicals, can trigger reactions, while nourishing natural ingredients can help improve the skin's barrier and hydration balance.
