Your skin type: Sensitive skin

Your skin type is: Sensitive skin

The symptoms of sensitive skin include redness, flaking, itching and feelings of burning and tension. Likewise, sensitive skin can quickly develop rashes with pustules, papules or swelling. Sensitive skin reacts very quickly and often very strongly to external stimuli and environmental influences. These include, for example, cold, heat, irritating active ingredients in cosmetics, solar radiation or environmental pollution. For example, after a hot bath or using facial cleansers that are too aggressive, redness and a burning sensation occur. People with sensitive skin usually have fairly light skin that is prone to sunburn.

Characteristics of sensitive skin

  • fine scales, redness, rash, swelling
  • Scaliness and roughness
  • Feelings of tension, burning, itching and tingling also occur

These signs can appear on any part of the face. There are some similarities to other skin conditions, especially signs associated with dehydration.

Oily skin

Oily skin tends to produce more sebum and sweat, which makes it shiny and coarse-pored. Unwanted blackheads often form, which unfortunately can also develop into acne.

Dry skin

Dry skin is also known as lipid-dry condition or sebostasis. It usually also belongs to the category of problem skin, sensitive or sensitive skin. Your skin produces too little sebum.

Combination skin

It is typical for combination skin that some areas show symptoms of dry skin and other areas show symptoms of oily skin. Most of the time the forehead, nose and chin (called the T-zone) are shiny and oily, possibly even unclean, while the cheeks are dry, dull and flaky at the same time.

Mature skin

Everyone gets mature skin over the course of their life. Some earlier, some later. When your skin begins to show the first signs of aging depends on many different factors

Impure skin

Impure skin is prone to blackheads, so-called comedones, which sometimes form inflamed, small reddish pustules. Impure skin most often occurs in young people after puberty, but can also recur over the course of life.

Normal skin

The term “normal” is generally used for a balanced complexion. The T-zone (forehead, nose and chin) can be slightly oily, but the sebum and moisture levels are balanced and the skin is neither too oily nor too dry.
