Intolerant skin suffers from redness, prickling and irritation. There is just one rule that must be followed in order to improve everyday comfort for delicate skin: respect this fragility by using hypoallergenic formulas formulated with a minimum of ingredients.
An extreme skin reaction
Intolerant skin is more vulnerable to outside attacks and is characterised by daily discomfort and extreme irritability. It can be recognised by certain signs, with varying degrees of severity. For example, the skin suffers from redness and prickling, it feels tight, hot or itchy, and burning sensations can also be experienced.
Sensitivity to allergens
Intolerant skin is generally more sensitive to allergens and is therefore particularly sensitive to the ingredients used in cosmetic skincare products. The most frequent allergens are fragrances and preservatives.The skin’s barrier can therefore become damaged and no longer able to fulfil its protective role. The skin easily becomes dehydrated, hot and tight.
Objective: to moisturise the skin and reduce its sensitivity
Certain steps are essential to caring for intolerant skin and bringing it everyday comfort:
- Cleanse the skin gently using a liquid dermo-cleanser.
- Use soothing and anti-irritant thermal spring water to complete the cleansing process.
- Apply a soothing, protective cream, specifically designed for intolerant skin, which contains a minimum of ingredients.
