What is a sensitive skin?

Sensitive skins are quite reactive from external stimuli and certain emotions. This hyper sensitivity can be explain by many factors: very sensitive nerve ending of the skin that panic easily as well as an altered skin barrier that doesn’t fulfill its job of protecting. The skin being more exposed to irritations, bacteria and climate change, it gets more fragile. What you need to know: this is not the usual type like can be dry, oily or combination skins, everyone can have a sensitive skin once in their life.

How to recognize a sensitive skin


  • It calls for help as soon as it is stressed.
  • It heats and becomes red easily (especially around the cheeks).
  • It pulls, tingles and can even itch.
  • Can barely stand cosmetics.
  • It excessively reacts to external conditions as well as strong emotions.


Heat, cold and sudden changes of temperatures drain the skin and make it hyper sensitive. Some cosmetics containing products not tolerated by the skin such as parfum, irritants, coloring, can weaken it. Hard water can be an aggravating factor because of its draining and irritating substances. Alcohol and spicy food can make skin sensitive and bring flushes.

Beauty routine to adopt

Morning and evening: the right routine

To avoid upsetting your skin, it is important to adopt a skincare routine that respects sensitive skins, with high tolerance soothing treatments, preferably without rinsing to avoid the aggressivity of hard water. Use unscented allergen free hydrating creams.

The right masks to apply

Dry skins need regular scrubbing to get rid od dead cells and get a radiant complexion back. More gentle, choose enzymatic ones. Then, apply a squalane nourishing face mask to create a soft and protective film on your skin. As soon as it pulls, tingles or flushes, use a soothing arnica-based mask, to relief and strengthen at the same time the skin barrier. Regenerating masks are suggested for a radiant skin and slow down aging process, which are the main difficulties of dry skins.

Take care of yourself.

Because we are RARE, our skin must keep up with the flow. Because we love never ending evenings, vibrating, dancing, setting up the alarm clock on at the last minute, moving (a lot), and starting all over again. Because we also want a fresh and glowing complexion non-stop. Yes, we want it all, and we’re right. Because we are unique, RARE has developed efficient technical care adapted to each of us’ concerns.
