Soothing Sensitive skin

Burning , stinging, prickling and itching. Sounds like a bad experience. Various reports state that 50% of the world’s population suffers from these symptoms in a condition broadly terms ‘sensitive skin’. The term sensitive skin generally refers to a skin condition defined by sensory symptoms rather than disease entity There is a clear difference between a truly sensitive skin and a sensitized skin.

A true sensitive skin is the result of your genes. This genetic predisposition is found in those who have fair skin and present other allergic diseases.
