Hypersensitive skin reacts to internal or external stimuli more readily than ‘normal’ skin. There are lots of different factors that may aggravate sensitive skin, for example soaps, washing powders, make up or creams, too much heat or cold, clothing fabrics, friction against skin or it could be an indication of general inflammation.
You can help hypersensitive skin by identifying the triggers, for example shower in warm, not hot water, avoid harsh astringents and exfoliants, use essential oils rather than perfumes, or better still products that are aroma-free, pat skin dry and gently press on skincare rather than vigorously massaging it in.
