SOOTHING TREATMENT FOR SENSITIVE SCALP
How to describe sensitive skin?
In most cases it is a physiologically more sensitive epidermis, a sensitive, hyper-reactive skin, that is a skin which, with the same surrounding and stimuli, reacts faster and more intensely than normal.
It is a skin with a lower reactivity threshold in relation to the norm and towards various non-specific stimulations of internal origin: digestive factors (alcohol, spicy and spicy foods), emotions, stress, hormonal factors and stimulations of external origin : cold, wind, sun, rubbing, too covering cosmetics.
In a smaller number of cases it is a pathologically sensitive skin, i.e. its sensitivity is caused by general diseases (renal insufficiency), real dermatoses (atopic dermatitis, contact eczema) or that it has become as a result of exogenous aggressions , such as: solar dermatitis (allergies to light, etc.); irritating skin treatments; inadequate cosmetics.
However, in all cases, sensitive skin is one of the most frequent reasons for requesting dermatological intervention and must be evaluated individually, case by case.
How to explain sensitive skin?
The epidermis is a complex structure mainly made up of: the stratum corneum which contains the keratinocytes, those cells which come into contact with the external environment, the dermo-epidermal basement membrane which ensures relations with the dermis.
Real support tissue and vital center of our epidermis, the dermis performs a very important function in the healing processes and guarantees skin microcirculation, melanocytes that produce melanin, essential for skin pigmentation and for photoprotection, Langerhans, immune-competent cells that monitor the immune system at the peripheral level.
They play an important role in defending against any external aggression.
All these skin elements can be affected by various alterations: if the stratum corneum is altered, the skin's protective function is modified; if the alteration is borne by the basal membrane, the skin becomes thinner (as happens in photo-aging: aging caused by ultraviolet rays) or chronic vasodilatation occurs (for example couperose); if the melanin reproductive system is altered, both photo-aging and photo-allergies can occur; in the event of alteration of the Langerhans cells, phenomena of intolerance and skin sensitization or even real allergies appear.
In addition to the primary causes just reviewed, there are also secondary causes at the origin of the sensitive skin problem, one of which is the psychological factor.
The latter plays a vital role in all health and beauty issues.
But other factors may also play their part.
For example, a skin reaction can be induced by general organic conditions: tiredness, age, state of health; from hormonal ones: pregnancy, menopause, menstruation, etc.
This is why it can happen that a customer who is absolutely satisfied with a certain cosmetic is no longer able to bear it from one day to the next.
The influence of various factors may have changed your reactivity threshold.
- Intolerance to many substances.
- Children's cosmetics are preferred because the skin is very irritated.
- Itching, stinging, sometimes burning.
- Feeling of tight skin, even sore.
- Sometimes dandruff in areas.
- Hair: nothing special. They don't hold much. They are "electric"
- Relieve irritation and inflammation
- Relax, soothe redness and irritation
- Make the skin more resistant
- Act on a sensorineural level
