Sensitivity


Do you suffer from tight, red, stinging, itchy, reactive, flushing or hot skin? Sensitivity is a very common skin concern among our clients, but understanding the difference between sensitive and sensitised skin is the first step into managing this challenging skin concern.

Do you suffer from the following?

  • Dehydration
  • Excessive dryness, rough patches
  • Tightness and stinging
  • Redness
  • Small rash-like bumps/breakouts
  • Blushing, itching, burning sensations

What are the differences?


Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin is inheritied and is the result of your genes.

What else?

This genetic skin condition can be found in those who may have fair skin or susceptible to allergic diseases. If you have sensitive skin,
you may suffer from inflammatory skin diseases like Eczema, Psoriasis and Rosacea. Unfortunately, this skin condition cannot be fully erased BUT it can definitely be treated.

Sensitised Skin

Unlike sensitive skin, sensitised skin is a reflection of your environment and lifestyle.

What else?

Sensitised skin can be triggered by pollution, cosmetic and skin care ingredients, over-exfoliation, diet, alcohol and climate changes. This skin condition can be improved over time with the proper skin care regimen prescribed by our Dermalogica Experts to reduce redness and soothe irritation for long-lasting relief.

How can my sensitivity be treated?


We recommend booking in for a Free Skin Consultation where one of our Skin Experts will educate you about this common skin condition and customise a skin treatment program tailored to your skin.

Specifically targeting our clients who suffer from sensitised skin, in particular roseacea, is our New Signature Treatment, HealGLO. This treatment is designed to instantly calm irritated angry, red sensitive skin.

Our Dermalogica Skin Experts will perform gentle hydroxy acid exfoliation and LED to intensify the anti-inflammatory effect. Ionisable serums work to calm sensitised skin and preserve the delicate barrier of our skin.

As Dermalogica is a professionally prescribed skincare brand, we recommend you visiting our Skin Centre before purchasing the products needed for your home care routine. It is here that one of our Dermalogica Skin Experts will discuss with you home care solutions that will be the key to treating your concerns on a daily basis.

However, the first step in breaking the cycle of sensitivity to your skin is removing any triggers as possible. These could include smoking, alcohol, and caffeine consumption, all of which can cause sensitised skin to be worsened.
