Abstract

Sensitive skin can be defined in both subjective and objective terms. A variety of testing protocols have been employed to quantify the changes associated with this type of skin. Given the current incomplete knowledge of the sensitive-skin condition, the definition of sensitive skin remains controversial. A short 12-item questionnaire was prepared, part of which addressed the opinions about causes, symptoms and reactions of sensitive skin. Data referring to gender, age, phototype (skin type), eye and hair colour, were also registered. The results from using this questionnaire in 500 subjects were examined. Of all the subjects in this study 35.6% believe they possess the characteristics of sensitive skin; 37.0% seldom experiences uncomfortable symptoms, with or without signs of inflammation, and the remaining 27.4% of them think their skin is normal. Erythema, dryness and/or pruritus localized on the face, hands and trunk were referred by the majority of individuals. Environmental stimuli such as sunlight or a cold climate, detergents and cosmetics were mainly considered as causative agents.
