Sometimes, it is only a tight, burning feeling that gets worse after each application of a cosmetic product. It can become permanent and unbearable. This mostly occurs in women with thin, pale and dry skin who are anxious and stressed.
This applies both to the cosmetic products they use and their lifestyle. I encourage them to limit their consumption of alcohol, coffee and spices,to avoid temperature differences and their exposure to the sun and wind. Above all, I ban them from applying products that contain cortisone which, after helping a little, weaken and thin the skin.
and to choose products that are specifically formulated for "sensitive skin”. They should also refrain from using soaps or cream bars and instead use cleansing lotions without rinsing and thermal spring water sprays. I invite my patients to choose moisturising creams with light textures, cold creams and non-irritant hair products. Finally, I advise them to avoid skin cleansing, exfoliating masks and anti-ageing products.
