Skin concerns

Daily care of sensitive or reactive skin

Sensitivity is a skin condition rather than inherent. It can affect all skin types: dry, combination or oily. Sensitivity may be temporary or permanent (as is the case with rosacea on the face). It occurs due to several factors: the thinness of the skin, external aggressors, sudden temperature changes... Sensitive or reactive skin is prone to redness (especially with redness on the nose) tightness and discomfort. How should you take care of sensitive skin and relieve it on a daily basis?

Red, blotchy skin needs to be treated gently to avoid aggravating its fragility

For best results

Be gentle on your sensitive skin

Sensitive and reactive skin need to be treated gently to avoid aggravating its fragility. Apply your skincare products carefully, clean any red, blotchy skin without rubbing at it, and avoid using cotton pads.


Avoid hard water

The composition of water has an impact on the condition of the skin. Water that is too hard tends to dry it out, just as water that is too hot can put it under pressure. In the summer, try to rinse your skin off as much as possible after swimming in a pool or the sea to stop it being irritated by chlorine or salt.


Choose the right formulas

Some formulas are better suited to sensitive skin than others - including rich, unctuous creams with light textures. Don't overdo scrubs and add a soothing mask to your beauty routine on a regular basis.



Prevent skin damage

The elements have a direct impact on reactive skin, including rosacea on the face The sun and the cold can increase discomfort, as can pollution or smoking. Remember to protect your skin from external aggressors with targeted sensitive skin products. For men, shaving can also cause irritation and skin redness. Use a soothing after-shave to soothe the skin.

Any questions?



What is sensitive or reactive skin?

All skin types can be sensitive or reactive: combination skin, dry skin or oily skin. Sensitivity is a skin condition, which can be temporary or permanent (as is the case with rosacea on the face). This problem translates into irritation, skin redness, tightness, and feelings of discomfort. Skin reactions can be triggered or aggravated by sudden temperature changes, pollution, stress...

How do I know if my skin is sensitive?

If your cheeks tend to flush easily, if you feel your skin is taut, or if you have irritated areas (such as redness on the nose), especially after washing your face or when you go from an air-conditioned room to the heat of high summer (or the opposite in winter), your skin is probably sensitive or reactive.
