Every second woman claims to have sensitive and even atopic skin. This is not always the case, often ordinary skin is called sensitive, the wrong products are selected for it, and they do not get a good result and healthy skin.
How to tell if your skin is sensitive
It’s simple: if the wind, sun, frost, new cream or cosmetic procedure, the face reacts with peeling, rash and redness – the skin is sensitive. If you are allergic – also sensitive. Besides hyperactivity, there is atopy. Atopic dermis is called a dry dermis, which is prone to irritation and itching. Atopic dermatitis occurs in both children and adults, on the face and body, it is a chronic, non-contagious disease. Owners of this type have to constantly moisturize the dermis in order to get rid of discomfort. But, due to the specificity of the disease, it is difficult to saturate the cells with moisture; this requires special pharmaceutical cosmetics. But if atopy is a disease, then hyperactivity (sensitivity) is a condition of the face that appears when the epidermis is damaged. This is not a skin type and the dermis can be returned to its normal state by normalizing the diet and drinking regimen, as well as with proper care.
