Skin may become hypersensitive as the result of both hereditary and environmental factors. Once irritated, sensitive skin is subject to numerous different reactions, including swelling, squames, redness, tingling, tightness, burning and eczema. The discomfort felt by children in particular is exacerbated by the use of overly aggressive cosmetic and cleansing products.
In addition, studies have shown that the greater the water loss in skin (the quantity of water lost through the skin via evaporation), the greater the skin sensitivity related to drying out. That is why it is so important to gently rehydrate sensitive skin. With its natural hypoallergenic skincare creams, rich in mineral water and active ingredients, Alpaderm restores the skin's lipid film and reduces the snowball effect of successive intolerances.
