Delicate skin and sensitive skin are two skin conditions with shared characteristics: Due to a loss of its natural balance, the skin feels dry, reacts to external stimuli with sensitivity and tends to redness. Our skin care system can be finely-tuned to the individual needs of each condition. The goal: to soothe the skin and restore its natural beauty.

How does sensitive skin develop?

As the skin becomes rough and chapped, it reacts sensitively to external stimuli. Even minor chaffing, without visible signs, can enable foreign substances to engage the immune system. This acts as a trigger that, in some cases, can result in lifelong allergies. A second type of sensitive skin is characterized by low response threshold to stimuli. This skin type is prone to telangiectasia, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, perioral eczema or other skin conditions. These conditions may be latent and not exhibit visibly.

How do you soothe sensitive skin?

lf dryness is causing skin sensitivity, then a combination of lipids and soothing active ingredients will typically remedy the problem effectively. lf, however, sensitive skin is caused by something other than dryness, then we emphasize a skin care routine that strengthens, soothes and normalizes the skin's barrier. Sensitive Balance products are formulated to provide highest skin compatibility.

How do I deal with allergies?

Prepare a list of your allergens with a short description of your skin condition. A Doctor Eckstein® skin care professional or our Customer Care Service can provide product recommendations based on this information and individualized to your needs.
