skin is easily irritated and is more reactive than normal skin. It’s fragile skin, usually prone to heat, redness, itching, etc and loses its barrier, thus allowing microorganisms and irritants to easily enter and leading to infections and allergic reactions.
How can you identify sensitive skin?

- Becomes oily in summers /hot season
- Get dry in winters / cold rain season
- Reacts to skincare products
- Becomes red after a hot water bath or shower
- Feels itchy while wearing tight clothes
- Flushes easily after eating spicy food
Are allergies the same as skin sensitivity?
A common asked question….!
Allergies are more severe and can sometimes cause difficulty in breathing and nausea. If you are allergic to dust, it doesn’t necessarily mean your skin is sensitive.
In skincare, you may be allergic to a particular ingredient but your skin may not be sensitive. It may be able to adapt to other products that don’t contain that ingredient. However, if you have sensitive skin, your skin will most likely react to harsh chemicals and skin products.
Tips for sensitive skin.
- Do a skin analysis
An analysis can help determine if you have any allergies or sensitivities to certain products, it can help you find the root of the problem and recommend treatment options.
- Don’t overdo your skincare routine
Buy a cleansing milk cleanser, a calming toner that adjusts perfectly to the PH of the skin, Zul moisturizer cream that acts by limiting skin-related hypersensitivity reactions, soothing and protecting the skin and finally a sunscreen.
- Avoid hot showers
Long hot showers can make you feel good, however, they can make your sensitive skin red and irritated by stripping off the essential oils. Avoid taking hot showers to prevent any aggravation.
