The first and most important step in caring for hypersensitive skin is ensuring that it is effectively cleansed without irritating or harming the already defective skin barrier or the underlying hyper-responsive sensory fibres. Because hypersensitive skin has a compromised skin barrier it is susceptible to irritations and the sensory fibres in the epidermis are easily activated by stressors. This leads to unpleasant feelings on the skin which sufferers describe as, among other things, burning or stinging.
Eucerin UltraSENSITIVE Cleansing Lotion leaves hypersensitive (including redness/Rosacea/Couperose-prone skin) thoroughly cleansed while its 'pure' formula contains only a limited number of ingredients to minimise intolerance and allergic reactions. The UltraSENSITIVE Cleansing Lotion has no surfactants, and is very gentle to the skin, yet it is powerful enough to remove make-up.
Eucerin UltraSENSITIVE Cleansing Lotion contains SymSitive*, an innovative active ingredient especially developed for hypersensitive skin. It acts as a sensitivity regulator at the source of the hyper-reactivity, minimising sensory fibre activation and, in turn, soothing hypersensitivity instantly.
Eucerin UltraSENSITIVE Cleansing Lotion instantly calms and soothes irritation and relieves redness, making it a fundamental part of the daily care routine for hypersensitive skin. Following cleansing, use Eucerin UltraSENSITIVE Soothing Care Dry skin or Eucerin UltraSENSITIVE Soothing Care Normal to combination skin when the dominant skin problem is an unpleasant skin feel such as burning, stinging or itching. If skin shows visible signs of redness, there are signs of inflammatory skin diseases like Rosacea, or if an SPF is wanted, use Eucerin AntiREDNESS Soothing Care or Eucerin AntiREDNESS Concealing Day Care SPF 25.
As with all products in the Hypersensitive Skin ranges, Eucerin UltraSENSITIVE Cleansing Lotion uses anti-contamination packaging with a dual valve system.
