Here’s how to recognise sensitive skin
Visible signs such as redness or even swelling, as well as dryness, associated with roughness or flaking skin, are particularly noticeable. These are often accompanied by subjective sensations such as a feeling of tension, itching, burning or stinging. Sensitive skin can affect all areas of the body, but especially frequently on the face. These signs can appear on all areas of the face.
There are some similarities to other skin conditions, particularly to signs that accompany a lack of moisture.
The effectiveness of the functions depends on the skin’s enzyme activity, which is often reduced in sensitive skin. As a result, the function of the skin’s barrier is affected, too much moisture is lost through the skin, and irritants can penetrate it. There is often also a thinner corneal layer. In addition, an increased sensitivity of the nerve endings can be observed in sensitive skin.
