Sensitive Skin / Impaired Skin Barrier

If your skin feels dry, itchy, reddish, or prone to acne, it might be sensitive. Research indicates that 30-40% of people have sensitive skin, often related to damage to the skin barrier. Improper skincare can make sensitivity worse, but aesthetic treatments can help soothe and rebuild the barrier.

What are Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin is a state of suboptimal health that lies between healthy and unhealthy skin. It results from complex processes affecting various skin elements, including the skin barrier, nerves, blood vessels, immunity, and inflammation. When the skin comes into contact with external irritants, it responds differently, causing erythema, papules, spider veins, tingling, burning, and reduced tolerance to standard cosmetics, resulting in sensitive skin. In fact, sensitive skin is linked to a damaged skin barrier made up of sebum and the stratum corneum.

Sebum Barrier: The skin has a protective layer called the sebum barrier. It’s made of sebum, lipids, and sweat. This layer is composed of different components like triglycerides, wax esters, squalene, and cholesterol.

Stratum corneum: The outermost layer of skin is made up of corneocytes and intercellular lipids, which work together like bricks and mortar. The intercellular lipid contains ceramides, free fatty acids, and cholesterol.

The outermost layer of skin is made up of layers of cells and lipids that work together to protect the skin. A strong barrier prevents damage from external factors and inflammation, and also helps to retain moisture and nutrients within the skin.



Skin damage is usually caused by humans and isn’t something we’re born with. Sensitive skin can be either natural or caused by humans.

1.Aggressive products

Products with hormones, strong fragrance, or high acid concentrations can irritate the skin.

2. Overwash or aggressive exfoliation

Over-washing or scrubbing too hard can harm the protective layer of your skin, making it more vulnerable to outside irritants.

3. Skin suffering from skin diseases

Skin with diseases like rosacea, hormone-sensitive dermatitis, or lupus erythematosus is at risk of barrier damage.

4. External stressors

Hot weather, UV rays, and pollution can harm skin and cause redness.
