Sensitive skin is characterised by unpleasant dryness, stinging, burning, redness and tightness. Sensitivity is often a reaction to air-pollution, food or certain skincare products that come in contact with the skin. If your skin is sensitive, it has a tendency to blush and flush and may also react with pustules, skin bumps and skin erosion.
Sensitive skin can be genetic, but it can also be related to environmental or lifestyle factors. The skin’s main function is to protect; however, exposure to the factors that cause sensitivity can compromise its ability to function optimally. If your skin is sensitive, chances are that it has a thinner strateum corneum, a weaker natural defense barrier of lipids and less protection against irritating ingredients or pollutants. Rebalancing skin and maintaining optimum hydration is key for acne-prone, itchy and thin skin suffering from sensitivity. Harnessing the potent power of organic herbs, the ILCSI Seven Herb Treatment is a must-have mask for sensitive, oily or acne-prone skin types. Helping battle breakouts, heal blemishes and hydrate your complexion, it features anti-inflammatory and antibacterial natural wonders yarrow and plantain, as well as aloe and black elder to soothe and nourish. Applied to cleansed skin and left on for 15 minutes, this mask for sensitive skin offers a slight pore-tightening effect to reduce their visibility and help to minimise future breakouts. Apply it once a week or whenever your skin shows signs of sensitivity and have great skin with ILCSI.
