What’s the difference between sensitive skin and sensitized skin?

Sensitive skin is a genetic trait, while sensitized skin is a growing phenomenon with multiple causes including increased exposure to environmental assaults, stress and chemicals.There are two primary contributors to common skin redness: immunogenic inflammation, where the immune system launches a cascade of inflammation and involves the activation of white blood cells, and neurogenic inflammation, which is triggered by the nervous system. In both cases, the respective process results in pain, redness, itching, swelling and heat associated with inflammation. The newest understanding of chronic skin redness concludes that it is the combination of genetic susceptibility, immune disruption, nerve activity and epidermal barrier function that contributes to skin sensitivity and inflammation.

Dermalogica’s Redness Relief Primer SPF20 targets redness in both the short and long-term with natural botanical extracts of yeast, oat and oat kernel oil that provide calming effects on the flushed appearance of skin. It also helps hydrate and heal the skin from over exposure to soap-and-water cleansing, strong ADA products, allergens such as pollen and artificial fragrances, contact with environmental irritants, sun, stress or other sources of inflammation.

New Redness Relief Primer SPF20 is available for $45 at authorized Dermalogica spa, salons and skin centers nationwide and at www.Dermalogica.com.

A word of advice, if you don’t want to worry about a dry, red complexion, never go out in the sun without a good sunscreen. A hat also helps shade the dangerous and destructive rays.
