The term sensitive skin…
is interpreted in different ways by different patients, dermatologists and cosmetic companies.
Sensitive skin is a type of skin with subjective and objective characteristics.
Subjectively, patients feel their face burning. These symptoms, mild or severe, appear immediately after contact with a cosmetic product or a few hours and/or months later from exposure to cold, heat or after stress.
Sensitive skin can be:
Light-coloured, dry, thin, without sebum, protopic, with a defective skin barrier, while in men it is sometimes thick and greasy.
Its diagnosis seems easy when it is not concealed by another disease, mainly irritant or allergic dermatitis and contact urticaria.
It is a therapeutic challenge for the dermatologist and finding the appropriate therapeutic products provides an improvement in the patient’s quality of life. p>
