“People’s use of the word ‘sensitive’ has increased in terms of the scope. It’s a big umbrella. Any irritation on the skin, they are labeling it as sensitivity,” Dr. Dennis Gross says. As always, our doctor debunks this common misconception and offers a magical skincare solution in one word: moisture.
Many people have shied away from clinical skincare because they consider their skin to be too sensitive for effective methods – but all skin needs a little extra help to combat three of the most common signs of aging: uneven skin tone and texture, fine lines and wrinkles, and enlarged pores.
“Sensitive” skin is genetically prone to irritation, while “sensitized” means the skin is more vulnerable due to poor product selection or environmental factors (such as pollution or weather conditions) making the skin more prone to irritation versus being born that way.
Both genetics and poor product selection are the most common causes of sensitive skin. If the oil chemistry is off balance, the skin can be overly dry and stripped of its natural oils, which may actually cause the skin to be easily irritated. What does it mean to be out of balance? The face’s skin should naturally level out at 5.5pH. If you over-cleanse skin, making it feel tight and dehydrated, tend to have oily or dry skin it means that your skin is out of balance.
The first step to healthy skin is hydration, not matter what your skin type. Hyaluronic Acid is a moisture magnet. It is the number #1 ingredient for keeping skin hydrated, no matter whether you have oily, dry, acne prone or sensitive skin. It is always good to look for Hyaluronic Acid as an active ingredient because it moisturizes via humectants (which pull water vapor from the atmosphere and into the skin) rather than through the application of oil. Did we mention it holds 1000x its weight in water? Enough said!
A mild yet powerful exfoliating agent like the Ultra Gentle Daily Peel is perfect for sensitive skin or first-timers, loaded with Hyaluronic Acid plus reap additional anti-aging benefits. Need a turbo-boost of hydration? Our new Marine Mask is a fast and effective way to refresh dull skin. The daily use of our oil-free Moisture Cushion or Hydration Booster are guaranteed ways to get skin healthy in no time. It’s the magic of moisture.
