Skin Sensitivity: How Serious Is It?

Those occasional redness, bumps, even acne can all be results of skin sensitivity. Though we oftentimes associate these skin conditions as part of our monthly cycle, (read: red days) more often than not we neglect to take our skin seriously when these are in fact underlying reasons of skin sensitivity. You’ve probably read this a fe times as I’ve talked about this condition which you can read HERE.


Did you know that, we Filipinas rank 2nd in Asia-Pacific suffering from red, irritated, and sensitive skin? Yep. Admit it or not, we are no stranger when it comes to having dry and sensitive skin. In a dip-stick study by Nielsen, Philippines ranked second in Asia Pacific with 71% of women suffering from skin sensitivity, particularly in the face area. 1 out of 2 women reported experiencing facial dryness, irritation or redness, and itchy skin conditions.


Skin sensitivity is common among women, especially those living in tropical weather. Normal redness or dry, itchy spot on the face can pass up for an allergic reaction or some would even suggest not being “hiyang” (suitable) to certain skin or make up products but this is not always the case.



Physiogel Calming Relief Face Care Range is the perfect line of skin care products that can alleviate dryness, itchiness and even redness on one’s skin.



Our skin is composed of three layers; the epidermis, dermis and hypodermis. In our epidermis contains the corneum strateum that serves as our skin’s natural barrier. Through constant exposure to sun and stressful environment, our corneum strateum weakens.

According to Dr. Peter Blenkiron, Senior Director Skin and Health R&D of GSK,  there are numerous studies conducted to prove that Asians have lesser layers of Stratum Corneum than most Caucasians. The rising percentage of women in SouthEast Asia suffering from skin sensitivity is alarming.

There are a lot of face products formulated for skin sensitivity out there, but few address the heart of skin problem. The Physiogel®’s BioMimic Technology works naturally to repair the skin’s natural moisture barrier with specially designed lipid structure similar to those found in our skin. These specially designed lipids adds a protective layer on our skin against internal water loss. This way, skin sensitivity is not only relieved immediately, it also keeps the skin moisturized all day.


On days when I feel I need to reset my skin and let it rest from trying different kinds of skin care and make up products, I rely on Physiogel Calming Relief Face Care Range to help me repair my skin’s moisture barrier so it doesn’t get blotchy, dry and irritated. It offers nothing but goodness for my skin–always guaranteed to moisture. Truly nothing beats having great skin. In this age of thick brows, matte lips, contoured cheeks, it’s important to know that the real strength and beauty lies on having the best blank canvas –clear, smooth and moisturized skin.

If you’re uncertain on what triggers your skin sensitivity–external factors such as weather conditions & products are most common–best to consult your dermatologist about it. Most likely, she’ll recommend clinically-proven, hypoallergenic products such as Physiogel Calming Relief Care Range is for you.
