Sensitive and hypersensitive skin react disproportionately to certain factors that become aggressions for this skin type. Redness, tightness, tingling or overheating: sensitive skin can react in this way to a change in temperature or the use of an irritating, poorly tolerated cosmetic product.

When you have hypersensitive skin, the discomfort is daily, and the quality of life is affected. If your skin is intolerant, it can no longer tolerate anything and reacts suddenly and excessively at any time of the day. If it is allergy-prone, it will react quickly, causing itching and burning.

In either case, the discomfort is real, as is the aesthetic embarrassment! Fortunately, it’s possible to soothe and protect sensitive or hypersensitive skin, thanks to care products adapted to the high standards of this skin type.
