WHAT IS IT?
Sensitive skins react very easily to external or internal stimulants than normal skin. Hypersensitive skins react even more easily than others and present signs of irritability or discomfort stronger than normal. A hypersensitive skin is normally itchy, burning, tight, tingling and red. If you suspect that you might have a hypersensitive skin, you should speak to a skin care professional to help determine the cause of it so treatment can take place.
Some people are more at risk than others in developing a hypersensitive skin. More women get affected by it than men. People who have acne, rosacea, and eczema are more at risk to have hypersensitive skin than others. Babies and young children, as well as young teens, can develop a hypersensitive skin more easily. Untreated hypersensitive skin can eventually develop into skin allergies. Some factors that normally cause a reaction in hypersensitive skin include sudden temperature changes, the wind, sun exposure, excessive heat, stress and certain active ingredients in cosmetics. A hypersensitive skin will have an exaggerated reaction towards these stimulants.
A hypersensitive skin is caused when the skin has an impaired lipid bilayer when the lipid bilayer is not intact foreign objects can enter your skin more easily and cause harm to your skin cells. When a person has over reactive sensory nerves in their skin, their skin will have an overreaction towards stimulants that get into contact with the skin, resulting in irritation, itching, redness and sometimes flaking, as your body tries to get rid of the stimulant that it sees as an irritant.
