What is it?
A hypersensitive skin is caused by an impaired lipid bilayer where foreign objects can enter the skin more easily and cause damage to your skin cells. Over-reactive sensory nerves results in an overreaction towards stimulants that get into contact with the skin, causing itching, irritation, redness and sometimes flaking. These reactions are your body’s natural defence mechanism to get rid of the stimulant that it sees as an irritant.
Hypersensitive skin reactsquicker and more severely to irritability or discomfort than normal skin does. The hypersensitivityexperienced is normally itchiness,tightness, burning, tingling and redness. Hypersensitive skin can be treated if the cause is known, so you should speak to a skin care professional to determine the best cause of action.
In general, hypersensitive skin affects women more than men and people who have suffered from acne, rosacea, and eczema in the past are also more at risk to have hypersensitive skin. Age is also a factor with young children, teens and babies being susceptible. Untreated hypersensitive skin can eventually develop into skin allergies. There are various factors that can cause a reaction in hypersensitive skin include sudden temperature changes, the wind, sun exposure, excessive heat, stress and certain active ingredients in cosmetics.
