What Is Sensitive Skin?

Skin sensitivity can be caused by a number of different factors. When the skin's most superficial layer, the top layer, is compromised, symptoms such as stinging, redness and irritation may occur. Factors that can contribute to the skin's reactivity levels are sun exposure, over-exfoliation, product sensitivity and chemical peels. Glo Skin Beauty provide a whole range of products directed at the common skin concern which is sensitive skin.

Are Sensitive Skin And Rosacea The Same?
