Millions of people worldwide suffer skin sensitivity and this figure is on the increase. Studies have shown that at least 50% of people consider themselves their skin to be sensitive.
Although few people are born with this type of delicate and sensitive skin, it can be genetically predisposed. For example, if you suffer from allergies,eczema or psorasis, the liklihood of you having a sensitive skin type is high.
The most common factors in triggering skin sensitivity are severe weather conditions and reactions to products. There has also been a rise in the number of people suffering from stress, which studies have also shown to have an effect on skin sensitivity levels.
Most people will know when they have a sensitive skin type but if you are not sure the main characteristics to look out for include, a feeling of tightness after washing, excessively dry skin, red blotchy appearance, prone to blushing.itching and stinging, broken capillaries across cheeks and nose and small rash like bumps. The skin can also appear thin and translucent.
