Sensitive, dehydrated skin

In industrialised countries, over half of women claim to have sensitive skin. Symptoms include discomfort, redness, tightness and even prickling. To soothe the fragile epidermis, choose hydrating products for sensitive skin.

Sensitive skin’s biological clock

Surprising though it may seem, sensitive skin is not a skin type in the true sense of the term. In truth, it can affect any skin type, from oily and acne-prone teenage skin, all the way through to dry and mature skin. One thing all sensitive skins have in common is an excessive reaction to harmless stimuli in the environment or skin care products. 

But what makes sensitive skin truly unique is the way it evolves over time: over the course of an hour, a day, a year or a lifetime… environmental and hormonal factors can all change the face of sensitive skin.
