Do you have a drawer full of ‘reject’ skincare products that have previously irritated your skin, caused stinging, redness, burning or itching? Then you may have sensitive or reactive skin, which means you need a particular skincare range and routine.
Through specialised treatments and procedures, our expert Skin Therapists will guide you on your journey to a stronger, less reactive skin. Let’s begin!
Skin isn’t as sensitive as you might think. The outer layer of your skin (the epidermis) acts as a protective barrier for your body, keeping harmful substances out and locking moisture in. However, sometimes your skin’s natural defences can become weakened, which compromises the moisture barrier and leaves your skin susceptible to external irritants, such as harsh ingredients and allergens. Some people believe this to be sensitive skin, but it is more accurately known as reactive skin.
There are many reasons why your skin might become reactive. One of the leading causes is transepidermal water loss (TEWL). Water is essential for healthy skin. Cold weather and central heating, hot weather and air conditioning can deprive the skin of its moisture, leaving it feeling dry, sensitive and reactive. Dirt and pollution can also weaken the skin’s natural barrier and make it more reactive.
