SENSITIVE SKIN

‘SENSITIVE’ IS A TERM WIDELY USED FOR A NUMBER OF IRRITATING, SKIN CONDITIONS AND PROBLEMS.

You may have always had symptoms associated with sensitive skin, or you may experience them for just a few short weeks. These symptoms can include:

  • Dry, flaking skin 

  • Temporary redness 

  • Or persistent rosacea 

  • Itching 

  • Chronic skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis 

  •  Visible rash/blistering 

Skin Care

Establishing a cause to your skin’s sensitivity can be complex –these symptoms may be underlying to indicate another condition or a response to a specific lifestyle habit such as over-exfoliation (sensitisation).

TREATMENTS FOR SENSITIVE SKIN

We have gentle but effective treatments here at Skinfit Studio for sensitive skin cases. Your aesthetician will work with you to try and define what it is that is causing your symptoms and tailor a treatment plan for you from there – these treatments can include the mildest of skin peels to help strengthen the skin’s barrier or a tailored Skinfit facial to help restore hydration back into the skin. 
Adding sunblock protection and an antioxidant in your morning skincare routine (such as a Vitamin C serum) is an important to helping to improve skin sensitivity.
