What Level of Sensitivity is Your Skin?
Over 80% of women consider their skin sensitive to some degree.
Sensitive skin can be categorised in three ways:
Characteristics: Skin occasionally experiences unpleasant feelings such as tingling, itching, and/or tightness. Sensitive skin usually results from a mild reaction to aggressions like the wind, cold, sun and/or over-zealous cleansing which are tolerated by normal skin.
Characteristics: Skin experiences tingling and tightness, but also shows signs of redness, scaling and/or burning. Intolerant skin is easily traumatised by external factors and often reacts to the application of skincare products that are not suited to that skin type. Minimal ingredients reduce the chances of reaction.
Characteristics: Skin is allergic and experiences reactions characterised by eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis, indications include dryness, itchiness and redness.
