Sensitive Skin VS Reactive Skin

Sensitive Skin VS Reactive Skin

Do you have sensitive skin or reactive skin? Is there any difference between the two? Yes, the terms sound similar but reactive skin is not always sensitive. Both have their own set of unique characteristics.

Sensitive Skin

It is usually a genetic trait that results in a poor skin barrier. It allows the penetrations of allergens and irritants. The nasty reactions include stinging, burning, redness, blushing, or pain. Sensitive skin is difficult to treat and exhausting to live with. It is naturally thin, and blood vessels are found near the surface. Sensitive skin is always dehydrated and prone to breakouts.

How to Take care of Sensitive Skin

  • Choosing a gentle formula like micellar water to clean your sensitive skin is a good idea. Strong cleaners with ingredients like acid content are a big no for your skin type.
  • Sensitive skin has a compromised skin barrier, so it must layer up with a suitable moisturizer. Shea butter, squalene, and glycerin are some good hydrating ingredients to consider.
  • Artificial fragrances in skincare products are the worst enemy of sensitive skin. Scents cause stinging and burning. Always choose natural and fragrance-free products to avoid allergic reactions.

Reactive Skin

Reactive skin can develop due to environmental aggressors or skincare ingredients. The prolonged use of unsuitable products triggers skin allergies. You can avoid the reaction by eliminating the irritants from your daily routine and restricting their contact with your skin.

How to Take care of Reactive Skin

Skin allergies do not develop on the very first contact with an allergen. Sometimes it takes a long time to develop it. Your immune system becomes sensitized to a particular chemical or ingredient. After developing an allergic reaction, exposure to that component will cause severe skin conditions like swelling, irritation, rash, or damaged skin barrier.
  • Avoid chemicals and fragrances in skincare products
  • Use gentle cleansers.
  • Do not use physical exfoliants to remove dead skin cells. Lactic acid and phytic acid can be good exfoliating agents for reactive skin.
  • Moisturizer can help to repair the damaged skin barrier. Use moisturizing creams, lotions, or serums with a high concentration of antioxidants. They will fight the free radicals and keep your skin soft and nourished.

The Importance of Facial Treatment for Sensitive and Reactive Skin

People with sensitive or reactive skin may turn reddish about having a facial treatment, but it will subside after a short while. There is a variety of facial treatments that the salon offers. Some are specifically designed for sensitive or reactive skin to build up and strengthen the skin barrier. It is common for people with sensitive or reactive skin to avoid skincare products totally, which is also a wrong concept. Sensitive and reactive skins neglected will become overly thin and scaly, it will also age like any other skin type. Always keep your skin concerns in mind before going to get a facial. Your therapist will check all the ingredients and will ask you if you are allergic to them or not. An expert knows how to soothe your dry, damaged, or irritated skin. Your skin will feel instantly relaxed, smooth, and clean after the treatment. The facial treatments that experts usually try on sensitive skin are super hydrating.

What are the benefits of Jade Facial?

Cell Renewal:

The accumulation of dead cells makes our skin look dull and sallow. Jade Facial speeds up the skin’s cell renewal process. This cell renewal keeps your skin healthy and helps in making it look youthful for a long time. 


Our skin suffers from many pollutants in the environment. Dirt, germs, and sweat are trapped in our pores, leading to acne and breakouts. If these are not cleaned properly, you will suffer from skin irritations.

It would help with a regular deep cleansing to get these impurities out of your skin. Through Jade Facial, your skin will be cleansed thoroughly. Once your skin is clean and clear from impurities, it will be illuminant like the moon. 


The secret to healthy skin lies in hydration. Well-hydrated skin appears soft, supple, and dewy. Unfortunately, the external environment, pollution, and age disturb the hydration of our skin. The powerful nutrients in the Jade Facial help bring up your skin’s hydration level.
