Living with sensitive skin: The true impact on quality of life

From the moment you are born, every second of every day, your skin surrounds you with a protective barrier. It shields you against the elements, knocks, bumps and countless harmful substances in our environment. Yet we tend to take the immense role skin plays in our lives for granted.

For increasing numbers of people, however, skin has become an issue. Their skin has become sensitive and is no longer silently tolerating the stresses and strains of everyday life. It has begun to protest, expressing its discontent with symptoms such as redness, prickling, stinging… In the most severe cases, women with sensitive skin feel they have to opt out of “high risk” situations, which also means they can miss out on living a serene and fulfilled life.
