Skin Types Week 4: Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin is used as an umbrella term for a multitude of skin states or reactions caused by environmental, mechanical or chemical applications. For some sensitivity may only occur after the topical use of specific ingredients, causing inflamed itchy skin. For others, abrasive clothing or the environment can leave you with itchiness, rashes, soreness, or pink/red patches. When nerve endings in the epidermis are stimulated, they react. Nerve endings in sensitive skin can either be more prone to irritation or be due to a broken down skin barrier function. Your skin can be more sensitive at different times, for example,...

Skin Types Week 1: Dry Skin

This skin type above all others can manifest in a wide range of skin conditions, accelerated aging or a perfectly clear complexion. Dry skin is often temporary, perhaps rearing its head in winter, although it can be a lifelong condition. Cold winter air means low humidity, both outdoors and indoors. The water content of the epidermis (the outermost layer of skin) tends to reflect the level of humidity around it. Signs and symptoms of dry skin depend on your age, your health, where you live, time spent outdoors and other topical issues. Symptoms may include a feeling of skin tightness,...
