So what is the difference between sensitive and sensitized skin?
Sensitive skin is inherent, which basically means it is a genetic trait. People with sensitive skin are often prone to eczema, psoriasis, asthma, allergies and blush easily.
Signs and Symptoms:
Heat- Skin feels hot to touch and turns flushes easily.
Redness - Small capillaries are usually dilated and are visible on the cheeks, nose and chin.
Fragility - Capillaries often rupture, due to the lack of strength to withstand ongoing expansion and contraction of blood flow.
Dryness - The skin feels taut, flakes easily and loses moisture rapidly as a result of being too thin.
Sun Sensitivity - Thin, hot skin is more susceptible to the harsh effects of the sun.
