Having hypersensitive skin is a delicate situation. Do you find your skin easily turns red after using skin care products? Is your skin often patchy or itchy? Do you find you are disappointed with the product options out there? Confused about which ingredients will annoy and irritate your skin? Do you have a cupboard full of products you can’t use? I know how you feel and I completely appreciate your frustration. So let me share with you a secret I have recently discovered. A range of products made especially for hypersensitive skin– Avene XeraCalm.
Do you ever wonder if you suffer from hypersensitive skin?
According to dermnetnz.org, surveys show that 50% of women and 40% of men report of having sensitive skin. To have sensitive skin means you have low tolerance level for cosmetics and other personal care products. And these sensitivities are manifested in many different ways, such as experiencing stinging, itching or burning sensations. You can also see the appearance of redness, dryness, scaling, peeling and, in more extreme cases, bumps and hives.
So, have you confirmed your suspicion? Let’s see if you really have hypersensitive skin. You have it if you said yes to at least 3 or more of the symptoms above. Now that you have finally confirmed this, what do you do? Do you just sulk and accept your condition without doing anything? Or do you switch to a product specially formulated for sensitive skin?
Perhaps your next question is, which products can help?
Avene XeraCalm is one product we trust in dealing with hypersensitive skin. Specially formulated for those who are hypersensitive to weather changes. It is also ideal for those who easily react to products that contain harsh chemicals. As well as those who suffer from irritant contact dermatitis.
Who can benefit from using Avene XeraCalm?
Those who suffer from moderate to extremely dry skin or eczema will benefit from Avene XeraCalm. The reason? It contains carefully chosen ingredients known to soothe and help relieve extreme dryness symptoms.
What makes it different from other products made for sensitive skin?
The Avene XeraCalm range has a unique yet common active ingredient known as the Avene Thermal Spring Water. It comes from the Cevennes Mountains in Avene France. It is pure, free from bacteria, has low mineral content, and has a wide range of anions, cations, and trace elements. Dermatologists prefer Avene Thermal Spring Water among dermatological thermal spring waters because of its 2 is to 1 ratio of calcium vs. magnesium.
Now that you know more about Avene XeraCalm, let me share what are most common causes of hypersensitive skin.
Here are two of most common reasons why those who naturally have hypersensitive skin react.
First, irritant contact dermatitis.
Irritation happens when someone is exposed to either products or environmental aggressors that lead to a skin reaction. These irritants can either be personal care products, irritating body fluids such as urine, faeces, or sweat. It can also be environmental conditions such as heat, cold, low humidity and ultraviolet light.
Next is allergic contact dermatitis.
This happens when you apply either chemicals or materials to your skin and develops an allergic reaction after. Examples of the most reported allergens are rubber, latex, and silicone. These can also be active ingredients such as SLS, paraben, and others.
