What is Sensitized Skin?
Skin sensitivity can occur for a variety of different reasons at any point in life due to a compromised epidermal barrier. When the skin’s most superficial layer is compromised, symptoms such as redness, irritation and stinging may occur. Strong chemical peels, over-exfoliation, sun exposure and product sensitivity may contribute to increasing skin’s reactivity levels, but rest assured, Glo Skin Beauty provides an entire subcategory of products directed at this common skin concern.
Though seemingly similar, sensitive skin symptoms should not be confused with those of Rosacea. Unlike skin sensitivity which can be calmed and cured, Rosacea is an incurable condition with persistent flushing, inflammation and redness of the nose and cheeks. Although there is no cure, there are medications and products which can help manage the symptoms. If you or your client is concerned about this condition, a medical consultation is advised.
