Sensitive Reactive Skin

Hi Everyone,


I had a query from a follower on facebook about sensitive reactive skin.

This is a very common complaint from us ladies who live in the west and there are a couple of possible reasons for dry sensitive skin.

Firstly eczema is a dry skin condition which tends to react to perfumed products which contain preservatives.

Rosacea is also a very common condition among women over the age of 30.  Rosacea causes blushing and flushing of the cheeks and nose.  It can also cause sensitivity.

Some people react to regular cosmetic products regardless of the brand.  This is because many products regardless of expense contain preservatives to increase their shelf life.

A great range for sensitive skin is the Avene line.  A good routine is to use extremely gentle cleanser in the range with a spritz of eau thermal water and some skin recovery cream. For those with rosacea there is also the antirouges range
