Dry skin and sensitivity
While there are many triggers to skin sensitization, one of the biggest consequences of dry skin is an increase in sensitivity. Dry skin is a precursor to sensitized skin because when skin is dry, it’s depleted of its natural protective lipid barrier. This lowers skin’s defenses against environmental assaults that can cause a sensitized reaction in skin, such as itching and redness.
For proper treatment of a dry and sensitized skin condition, speak to a professional skin therapist.
