The specific anti-aging problems of sensitive skin


Do you have sensitive skin? If so, you will no doubt agree that it’s not always easy finding anti-aging skincare that meets all your needs. By understanding the causes of your skin’s particular vulnerability, which increases with the passage of time, and by choosing specifically formulated anti-aging products you can help keep it young and beautiful for years to come.


Uneven skin tone: a distinguishing feature of aging sensitive skin

Wrinkles, sagging tissue, and pigmentation are three classic clinical signs of skin aging. But there are more—redness, particularly common in sensitive skin, results in a less uniform skin color, making it look older than it really is.


Extreme sensitivity, exacerbating the ravages of time

Skin aging is the result of a combination of both internal and external factors.

Natural aging, caused by slower cell renewal, causes:

  • dry skin
  • superficial wrinkles on the skin’s surface
  • loss of firmness
  • deep wrinkles in the dermis

Environmental factors such as sun, pollution, and stress:
  • stimulate the production of free radicals
  • induce oxidative stress
  • cause cellular degeneration

Fragile and reactive, sensitive skin is also subject to specific problems relative to the microvasculature of the face responsible for the onset of redness.

The Solutions
