Sensitive or Sensitized?

Sensitive skin is a genetic predisposition.  Sensitized skin is an increasingly common condition caused by exposure to pollution, chemicals, stress, and by lifestyle choices.

If your skin is sensitive, it has been so since birth.  Those born with sensitive skin are prone to blushing, allergies, and respiratory issues. The skin is thinner so the blood vessels closer to the surface give the appearance of redness.The outer layer of the skin is defective allowing irritants to penetrate the skin and cause reactions. 

Sensitized skin is a result of environment and lifestyle.  It is an increasingly common issue.  Cosmetic ingredients such as alcohol, fragrance, and colorants lead to sensitized skin.

Whether sensitive or sensitized, the common factor is inflammation.  Book a free consultation to discuss your skin and develop a plan for calming the inflammation.
