Characteristics of Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin is the result of external factors, such as environmental conditions, and a corresponding predisposition. Besides genetic influences, however, factors such as age and psyche also play a significant role. Sensitive skin is characterised by an unpleasant sensation on the skin with redness, tightness and rough areas. It is often also accompanied by unpleasant itching. Many people with sensitive skin also react sensitively to external influences, such as sunlight, temperature, rough fabrics or skin care products. Particularly light skin types also react sensitively to UV light.

Although sensitive skin is not a disease, its typical symptoms such as redness or persistent tightness have a negative effect on well-being. The hypersensitivity of the skin can manifest in various ways, from itching to redness. Sensitivity is a common occurrence – up to 54 percent of people have sensitive skin. If you suffer from redness after showering or unpleasantly tight facial skin, you are probably experiencing a sensitive reaction. A particularly gentle cream will provide your sensitive skin with exactly what it needs – gentle care for any time of the day. 

Wind, cold, stress or the wrong skin care products – sensitive skin reacts immediately with irritation because its natural protective function is hindered. It requires a lot of attention and particularly gentle care. Here you will find information, products and tips to help you take the best care of your sensitive skin.
