Feel good in your (sensitive) skin

It rebels against spicy foods, reddens at the slightest emotion and does not handle temperature changes well. Welcome to the world of sensitive skin! But why are some people’s skin more reactive than others’? Here are some explanations and solutions.

Each person’s skin is unique and has its own tolerance threshold. Among its sworn enemies are pollution, certain cosmetics and UV rays. Skin with slightly impaired barrier function can become more sensitive to stimuli. While the defenses of some skin types are invisible to the eye, other types react in more obvious ways. Such is the case for redness-prone skin — which suffers from an abnormality in the venous system and reacts excessively to the hazards of everyday life — along with intolerant skin, which has a tolerance threshold near zero.

Whether your skin is sensitive, intolerant or prone to redness, you need to wear SPF 50 sunscreen year-round. Avoid dramatic changes in temperature as often as you can, in addition to scented cosmetics, which may irritate your skin. Finally, adopt a beauty routine that’s tailored to your skin type and incorporates cleansing and moisturizing. That’s the key to healthy skin!

... it stings or heats up for no apparent reason, especially after a hot shower.
... it does not react well to changes in temperature or wind.

YOUR IDEAL ROUTINE

  1. When you wake up, wash your face with a milk cleanser, micellar water or gel cleanser to decongest irritated skin, then apply a moisturizer suitable for your skin type.
  2. Before going to bed, remove your makeup or wash your face, use a moisturizer suited to your skin type, then… let the night work its magic! Your skin tissue is able to repair itself while you sleep.
