Sensitive Skin – Skin Condition or Skin Type


A skin condition isn’t the same as a skin type. I hear so many people say “I have sensitive skin” and think they can only use products for that. If you know what makes your skin sensitised then the answer is to stop using the product. If you treat the sensitivity you should be able to then treat the skin type when the sensitivity calms down.

Skin Conditions

Eczema, Psoriasis, Dermatitis, Sensitivity, Rosacea, Acne, Milia (aka whiteheads), Commedones (aka blackheads), Dehydration.

There is a treatment for all of theses skin conditions. Some of these conditions are hormonal or hereditary. Long term used of prescribed medication can have side effects and cause irritation too. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t used them. If you follow the instructions carefully you should be ok. If any product causes redness, itching or burning stop using it immediately.

Skin Types

Dry, Oily, Normal – Skin can also be a combination of any of these skin types. Check your products and see if they are the right one for your skin type. Excessive use of some products can cause sensitivity and products that are too harsh will strip the skin of its acid mantle – protective layer. Skin needs oil to prevent dryness, a little bit is good.
