Sensitivity & Redness

Calming skincare to reduce redness

Do you suffer from redness, itching or tightness in the face? If so, a gentle cleanser for sensitive skin is the answer. This skin type needs special care that won’t cause additional irritation.

Normally the stratum corneum and the skin’s acid mantle ensure that external factors do not harm the skin – as long as these natural barriers are intact. But if they are damaged or impaired, the skin becomes imbalanced and irritated. What many people don’t know is that an increase in dry, flaky skin and fine lines and wrinkles is also a sign that our skin is sensitive and needs urgent support.

If skin feels tight, it is important not to cleanse with peels as these have a thinning effect on the stratum corneum thinner, making it easier for irritants to penetrate it. This may result in the skin suddenly becoming irritated by a moisturizing cream that we have tolerated well up to now. In this case, it’s best to revert to gentle cleansing methods. A mild oil and also a cleansing milk without fragrances are a good solution here. Amongst other things, their lipid-replenishing properties help to calm the skin and soothe tingling sensations and other typical symptoms.
