Sensitive skin – brief characteristics
Sensitive skin reacts to all external stimuli and newly used cosmetics. UV radiation, low temperatures, air conditioning, and air pollution are very dangerous. Irritation is also caused by improper care, use of unsuitable cosmetics and unnecessary treatments in a beauty salon. If you notice that your skin gets red, flakes off and is tight, it means irritation has occurred.
