Not sure about the health of your skin? Look through our sections...

A sensitive skin reacts readily to heating, cooling, perfumes and stronger products, with redness. The skin may also feel tight and flake easily, but can also feel greasy. Sensitive skin needs to be calmed and is often in need of moisture. You may suffer from sensitive skin if you have exposed your skin to strong skin care products. Symptoms for sensitive and sensitized skin do have a lot in common, such as itching, burning, redness, flushing and stinging.

A sensitive skin condition is caused by a genetic predisposition. This could be caused by the lower amount of pigment and a thinner epidermal skin layer (the epidermal layer is the top layer of skin that we can see). Sensitive skin is commonly found in those of Northern European ancestry who have very fair skin. But it can affect any person of any racial background or skin color. The climate we are exposed to in our home, cars, offices and during air travel, changes daily; meaning our level of sensitization can vary.

How do I treat Sensitive Skin?

Sensitive skin cannot be cured. But with the right skin care products the skin can be calmed and regain a balance that is not as reactive.

For skin that is sensitive and dry, look for skin care products that are designed to treat tight and flaky skin, that gently cleanse but do not peel off the skin's natural liquids. Preferably, skin care products that nourish the skin and help it to bind and retain moisture, and protect it from external shocks.

For skin that is sensitive and oily, look for skincare products that are designed to clean the pores without damaging the sensitive skin. Lactic acid and salicylic acid are two good ingredients that exfoliate and absorb excess oil to give the face a matt surface.

In both cases look for products that contain soothing extract that reduce redness and irritation, products that are free from parabens and alcohol.

Repairing Day Cream  and Night Cream Intense are Hollywoodskin's answer to sensitive skin.

Allergic to almost everything..

I have a very sensitive skin type, it’s very hard for me to find suitable skincare products as my skin reacts to almost anything, even to products that only contains 100% natural ingredients. I came across Hollywoodskin on Amazon last year and bought Night Cream Intense. I use this cream as both a night cream and day cream. Keeps my skin fabulous without any irritations

Redness is finally gone

I have a very sensitive and acne prone skin which makes it hard for me to find skincare products as many of the acne products on the market are very harsh and contains Benzoyl Peroxide. I have now been using Night Cream Intense for almost 6 months and the results are unreal. This cream doesn’t irritate my skin, keeps it smooth and acne free. My skin is no longer dry, redness is gone and I only get a few occasional pimples very now and then.

Recently my skin got very sensitive and I started reacting to my old favourite cream. I bought Repairing Day Cream and was scared I was going to get the same kind of reactions as previous times but I didn’t! Repairing Day Cream keeps my skin soft and radiant, I love this one.

Hollywoodskin's products are great if you have got a sensitive skin type. My skin is not super sensitive but I still react to many products, but not to Night Cream Intense & Repairing Day Cream. I do recommend these products.
