The skin is thin, dry and cracked. The transition from dry to sensitive skin is often fluid. Sensitive skin often lacks natural and protective fats and moisture. It reacts quickly to environmental influences and temperature changes and is prone to irritation, inflammation, redness and flaking. Allergic reactions as well as rosacea or vasodilatation are not uncommon. Common allergenic substances are detergents and care products and cosmetics. Depending on the severity, a visit to the dermatologist may be advisable.
Care for sensitive skin: You have to pay special attention to the ingredients of cleaning, care products and cosmetics. Optimal care takes into account the dryness and sensitivity of the skin. Alcohol or fragrance additives should be avoided. Less is more and products with soothing active ingredients that strengthen the skin's protective barrier should determine the daily beauty routine. Many herbal ingredients have a calming effect, for example marigold, bisabolol, aloe vera, evening primrose oil or almond oil.
