Sensitive Skin Program

Often sensitive skin is thought to be skin that is easily irritated. You may find that certain products or environmental factors cause you to get red, itchy, or even break out. There are many reasons why the skin becomes inflamed and sensitive. Most often, inflammation of the skin is caused by physical triggers that include sun damage, extreme temperatures, exposure to various chemicals, and pollutants that disrupt and compromise the skin's acid mantle and natural barrier function. Usually, after removing the irritant and with a correction in skincare the redness starts to settle and the skin becomes comfortable.

A: Approach exfoliants and active ingredients with caution. For sensitive skin, use gentle exfoliants like lactic acid or enzymes sparingly. Patch-test new products and introduce them gradually to assess your skin's tolerance. Consult with a dermatologist for personalised recommendations.
