Red and sensitive skin

Red and sensitive skin can be a challenging problem, but with the right treatment we can reduce irritation and improve skin condition. Sensitive skin can be reactive to environmental factors such as sudden changes in temperature, touch, strong smells or certain cosmetic products. In addition, red and sensitive skin may be associated with couperose or rosacea. It is important to note that sensitive and red skin can be the result of many factors, such as heredity, environmental factors, diet, stress and improper skin care routines.



Red and sensitive skin can appear in a different range of symptoms, which may vary from person to person. Typical symptoms of red and sensitive skin may include:

Redness and flushing: The skin may be constantly or occasionally red, especially on the face.

Warmth: Sensitive skin may feel warm or hot for no apparent reason.

Itching: The skin may be sensitive and itchy in response to different irritations.

Stinging: The skin may sting or feel uncomfortable, especially after exposure to strong wind, sunlight or cosmetic products.

Pimples or bumps: Sensitive skin may react to various triggers by developing pimples or bumps.

Dryness: Skin may be very dry and react strongly to environmental dryness.

Reactivity: The skin becomes sensitive to both external and internal stimulus.

Couperosa: The capillaries expand and become visible on the surface of the skin, causing a reddening of the skin. The most typical areas are the nostrils, cheeks and chin.



Treating sensitive skin requires a gentle approach. Strengthening the skin and restoring its protective layer are key to solving the problem. An intact protective layer keeps moisture inside the skin and acts as a shield against external aggressions.

Stronger ingredients should be avoided at first, as they can cause unnecessary reactivity to sensitive skin. For home care, we recommend medicated skin care for their effective soothing effects. We recommend calming products from the ZO Skin Health and AlumierMD series.

When treating reddened skin, it is important to identify the underlying factors, such as sebum production, dryness, inflammation or sensitivity. Our experts will build a suitable home care plan based on your skin problems.

For sensitive or red skin, we recommend the pHformula CR resurfacing treatment, AlumierMD Radiant 30 chemical peel, ZO Restorative Peel, mesotherapy treatments, S.E.A.S.O.N.A.L. Skin treatment in winter, skin boosters, Profhilo, and Lumecca IPL treatment.

Regular use of sunscreen is also important, as the sun's UV rays can aggravate the condition of sensitive skin.
