Degrees of Sensitivity
Many women and some men have sensitive skin.
There are many different degrees of sensitivity: sensitive, intolerant or allergic skin.
First degree : Sensitive
Your skin is naturally sensitive if you easily experience unpleasant feelings such as tingling, tightness, inflammation or burning.
Your skin often has an excessive reaction to the aggressions (wind, cold, sun, over-zealous cleansing) that are usually tolerated by normal skin.
Second degree : Intolerant
Intolerant skin is even more traumatized with the application of products that are not adapted, and sometimes it “can no longer stand a thing ". Not only does it experience stinging and tightness, but also redness, scaling and burning. Use products that are adapted to your skin, with a minimum of ingredients in the formula.
Third degree : Allergic
Some intolerances become true contact allergy reactions, characterized by eczema (redness, burning, blisters or even oozing) or urticaria (swelling, burning).
At this stage, consult your doctor to determine the ingredient causing your allergy (which you will have to avoid forever after) through the appropriate allergological tests.
