Is your skin allergic or sensitive ?

While the symptoms are similar, the causes and the right skin care program are very different. It is indeed difficult to tell the difference between sensitive skin and allergic skin.

While the symptoms are similar, the causes and the right skin care program are very different. It is indeed difficult to tell the difference between sensitive skin and allergic skin. The following characteristics will help you understand the differences and choose the appropriate skin care products.

Whatever your skin type (dry, oily, normal, combination), you can have sensitive skin. Sensitive skin tends to feel tight, itch and / or burn when exposed to different factors such as cold, stress, sun, or even unsuitable cosmetics.

Skin is allergic because it reacts to an allergen—a substance that is not tolerated by the body. Allergens come from many sources, including food, drugs, and certain cosmetic products. You can recognize allergic skin by the appearance of red patches, severe itching or swelling. Eczema and urticaria are examples of the manifestation of an allergic skin reaction.
