It is generally used to describe skin with reduced tolerance to any substance the skin come in contact (especially cosmetics or skin care products). In surveys, approximately 50% of women and 40% of men may report having sensitive skin. It is often classify as inborn skin sensitivity.
- Sensitive skin is a weak protective function of the skin that can be genetically predisposed. When skin is sensitive its insufficient protective outer layer lets irritants, microbes and allergens pass through, causing adverse reactions like stinging, pain, redness or flushing. Genetically sensitive skin is considered more delicate because it has a thin epidermis, and blood vessels close to the skin surface, weaker tolerance, hence the appearance of redness. Usually people with asthma or allergies would have a sensitive skin.
- Sensitized skin can happen to any skin type and it is a condition developed after birth, and usually is a compromised lipid barrier. A healthy lipid barrier helps keep skin healthy by holding water in and keeping environmental pollutants and microbes out.
