The specific anti-aging problems of sensitive skin

Do you have sensitive skin? If so, you will no doubt agree that it’s not always easy finding anti-aging skincare that meets all your needs. By understanding the causes of your skin’s particular vulnerability, which increases with the passage of time, and by choosing specifically formulated anti-aging products you can help keep it young and beautiful for years to come.

Symptoms

Uneven skin tone: a distinguishing feature of aging sensitive skin
Wrinkles, sagging tissue, and pigmentation are three classic clinical signs of skin aging. But there are more—redness, particularly common in sensitive skin, results in a less uniform skin color, making it look older than it really is.

Causes

Extreme sensitivity, exacerbating the ravages of time
Skin aging is the result of a combination of both internal and external factors.

Natural aging, caused by slower cell renewal, causes:

  • Dry skin
  • Superficial wrinkles on the skin’s surface
  • Loss of firmness
  • Deep wrinkles in the dermis

Environmental factors such as sun, pollution, and stress:

  • Stimulate the production of free radicals
  • Induce oxidative stress
  • Cause cellular degeneration

Fragile and reactive, sensitive skin is also subject to specific problems relative to the microvasculature of the face responsible for the onset of redness.

The Solutions

A global anti-aging action, both inside and out
To keep your skin looking young for a long time, create your own beauty ritual by doing the following:

  • Antioxidants (berries, apples, broccoli, etc.)
  • Essential fatty acids (nuts, eggs, fatty fish, etc.)
  • Trace elements (wheat germ, dairy products, mineral water, etc.)

Lead a healthy life, which involves:

  • Doing physical exercise
  • Sleeping well
  • Not smoking
