What is sensitive skin?

If you are experiencing redness, but also other symptoms, such as spots, visible blood vessels and dry and thickened skin, you could be suffering from a skin condition called Rosacea.

Symptoms include redness, flushing, hardening of the skin, spots, a stinging or burning sensation and the appearance of red broken blood vessels. Severe symptoms might include dry, sore eyes and a thickening of the skin, particularly around the nose. Most suffers report flare-ups, with symptoms worsening and reoccurring over time.


What causes Sensitive skin

Studies prove that almost one out of two women have to deal with sensitive skin. This is not only generically-related; sudden irritation or redness is also occurring with increasing frequency in healthy skin, leading to weakening of the natural hydrolipidic barrier in the long term.

Rosacea affects more women than men, typically in their 30s to 50s; however symptoms can begin to show from early 20s. It is primarily seen on the nose, cheeks, forehead and chin, as well as the neck and chest and is often mistaken for acne, eczema or some other skin allergy. Left untreated, symptoms will worsen, so early action is advised. 

The causes of sensitive skin are diverse – temperature fluctuations, climatic conditions, increasingly mental stress, contact with irritating substances or even extremely spicy food or an unhealthy diet may place strain on the skin. The skin’s natural protective function is limited and exposed to these diverse irritants. As a result, the skin becomes sensitised or even damaged in the long-term.

Many people with sensitive skin believe that this is caused by an allergy. When the skin reacts severely to environmental influence and stress situations, however, it is often the hydrolipidic barrier which is damaged. Irritating substances are able to penetrate much easily and evoke reactions as a result of this. The skin’s ability to store moisture is also reduced. Depending on irritant potential, the skin’s condition may change at short notice within a matter of hours or days irrespective of your age or skin type.
