Daily habits that dry your skin

Roughly 70% of the population believe that they experience symptoms of sensitive skin[1] which include, but are not limited to, redness, itching, tightness and stinging.[2]

There are a range of possible triggers for periods of sensitive skin. Triggers are unique to the individual and could be things such as stress,[1] the weather, menstrual cycle (for women) or certain personal care products and clothing fabrics.[3,4]

People that experience the symptoms of sensitive skin also tend to have a compromised skin barrier,[1] and experience skin dryness as a result of this.[4]

So what’s the difference between Sensitive Skin and Dry Skin?

Dryness can cause your skin to:[5]

·         Itch

·         Scale or flake

·         Feel rough

Sensitive Skin can cause your skin to:[1]

·         Sting

·         Become red and/ or dry

·         Feel tight and uncomfortable
