Sensitive Skin: A Mind and Body Approach

I can’t deal.

I have this major once a month, premenstrual syndrome issue involving pimple balloons. My pimples are not your average sized little zits that my older sister gets, barely noticeable that she spends hours in front of the mirror trying to conceal – no, my pimples are the size of half dollar coins, lurking beneath the skin until BOOM – they pop out like pimple balloons. My life becomes hell.

Save me.

A Mind and Body Approach

Caring for sensitive skin issues must not involve a superficial approach, but must take into careful consideration a treatment of both mind and body. Sensitive skin is a very widespread condition among the population, and unfortunately often underestimated. In the absence of cutaneous or apparent inflammation pathologies, it may be defined as a sensitive and fragile skin more prone to react (negatively) to physical or irritating chemical agents with respect to “normal” skin. Sensitive skin is more susceptible to allergies, redness, irritation, itching and skin burns.

Sensitive skin, however, is a very subjective phenomenon and, as such, it is difficult to draw up precise and universal parameters to objectively ascertain the condition.
The preoccupation with sensitive skin issues represents a matter of concern among many women, increasingly stimulated by the search for products that are safer, more effective, and gentler for the skin.


Many women experience the arrival of menstruation with a set of annoying sensations that are difficult to define. Hormonal imbalance is one of the major causes of this syndrome: a rise in estrogen levels and prolactin and a decrease in dopamine and serotonin. Hormonal variation and increased seborrheic activity may cause acne, red spots, and a greater degree of skin hypersensitivity.
