Sensitive Skin

The skin is often dry/sensitive due to inactivity of the sebaceous glands that produce the sebum (oil), which lubricate the skin. Factors contributing to this condition are: increased sun exposure, wind, harsh soaps, poor diet, aging, lack of enough fluid intake, excessive steaming of the face, the use of drying masks, drying cosmetics, and medications taken internally or applied topically. Dry/sensitive skin is lacking in oil or moisture or both. Treatments at The Skin Studio and home maintenance programs are designed to help stimulate the sebaceous glands and normalize the production of sebum and help to retain moisture in the skin.
