Skin Tips: Sensitive Skin

May 14, 2020

Over 50% of women and 38% of men self-report experiencing sensitive skin. Often characterized by redness and dryness, those with sensitive skin may also experience tightness and/or itchiness.

Some of the main causes of sensitive skin are as follows:

Weakened Skin Barrier: When the skin’s barrier is weak, skin cannot retain moisture properly, leading to dry and tight skin

External Factors: When skin is exposed to allergens or pollutants, skin may produce a reaction that causes redness and itchiness

Internal Factors: A lack of sleep, poor diet, or changes in hormone levels can lead to temporary sensitivity in the skin

H2O+ Hydration Sensitive


Often times, skin sensitivity is treated with products that are too rich (i.e. heavy hydration that can overwhelm/clog skin) or with products that do not treat the cause of sensitive skin but merely try to manage the symptoms. 

 By gently hydrating the skin, and reinforcing skin’s natural defenses, symptoms of sensitive skin can subside. A routine that incorporates multiple layers of lightweight hydration can help target dryness and redness, without furthering skin sensitivity. H2O+ has developed a skincare system called Hydration Sensitive, which is formulated to help shield skin from irritants and alleviate skin sensitivity – all with lightweight hydration.
