Sensitive Skin | The Skin Clinic

We can put an end to sensitive skin

Sensitive skin is a common condition and means your skin is more prone to reactions such as redness, itching, burning and stinging of patches. Sensitive skin is treatable and may require a visit with one of our experts.


Reactive Skin
(Impaired Barrier)

What is it?

The Skin barrier is the skin’s own natural protective layer. This protective layer does 2 things – it protects your skin from any bacteria or toxins wanting to enter and locks in moisture to your skin to prevent water loss. This layer is made up of corneocytes (cells) and keratin (protein) which are held together by the skin’s natural oils.

When this skin barrier is impaired it makes way for nasties to enter the skin and disrupt it from functioning optimally. This may be why some skins react to certain products. The skin may look or feel itchy, dry, rough, inflammed and may come up with a fungal skin condition.

What causes an impaired barrier and how to strengthen your skin barrier

There are a number of things that can damage your skin’s barrier. These may include:

  • Too much or unprotected sun exposure. Always apply sun screen in the morning and re apply throughout the day even if it is raining outside.
  • Avoid using harsh products or ingredients. Over-exfoliating and using too many AHAs and BHAs in your skincare regime and strip away your skin’s natural protective layer.
  • Stress increases cortisol levels (stress hormone) which then drives inflammation in the skin.
  • Increase Essential Fatty Acids in your diet, this will calm down inflammation. e.g Avocado, salmon, walnuts, flaxseed oil and canola oil.
  • Avoid taking hot showers. This could dry the skin further and break down the barrier of the skin.
  • Certain medications such as steroids may also weaken the immunity of the skin barrier.

I highly recommend the Tixel treatment, the results are remarkable and speak for themselves. Thanks to the treatment, I now have the confidence and comfort to go without wearing foundation, as my skin has visibly improved and become clearer. I have even received positive feedback from others after undergoing the Tixel treatment, and I almost wish I didn’t have to share my secret! Overall, the results are amazing, and I can't praise Renee and the girls enough for their positive and friendly experience during the treatment.

5 stars from me. Carmela was absolutely amazing! I had the spa enzyme facial and it was incredibly relaxing. My skin feels so beautiful now and she also had some great tips for my skin. Can’t wait to come back again. I’ve also had my eyebrows shaped and tinted at the skin clinic previously and I’ve never found somewhere else that does as good job as these girls do! Thanks ladies 😊
