Have you ever had a breakout or noticed patches of dry skin around your nose and wondered, “Does this mean I have sensitive skin?”
If so, you’re not alone. Sensitive skin can be tough to define and, as a result, is one of the most misdiagnosed conditions in the beauty industry. While products like BABOR Skinovage PX Calming Sensitive Daily Calming Cream can be a great resource for those with sensitive complexions, this misunderstood skin dilemma is so confusing, even experts are weighing in.
“It’s an overused phrase,” Elizabeth Tanzi, M.D., co-director of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery in Washington, D.C, told Allure magazine. “People may be overusing their products, leading to irritation.”
One of the best ways to tell if you legitimately have sensitive skin is to test out new skin care products. If foundations, face washes and even blushes cause inflammation and make your skin sting, that’s a pretty good sign that you have a sensitive epidermis.
If your skin does become red, something like BABOR Skinovage PX Winter Protect Cream can soothe, condition and re-balance skin for a more luminous appearance.
