Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am a 20-year-old female with sensitive skin, and I am dedicated to addressing my skin concerns to enhance its health, comfort, and appearance. I would greatly appreciate your expertise and guidance on this matter. Could you provide more information about sensitive skin, its causes, and factors that may contribute to increased skin sensitivity? Are there specific tests or assessments you recommend to determine the underlying causes of my skin sensitivity and rule out any potential skin conditions? What are the best practices for skincare routines tailored to individuals with sensitive skin?


Welcome to icliniq.com. I read your query and understand your concern.

Here is a suggested skincare routine for the next few weeks:

1. In the morning, cleanse your face with any branded cleanser. Repeat this routine for 20 days.

2. After cleansing, apply a non-greasy moisturizer. Continue this step for 20 days.

3. Use sunscreen with SPF (sun protection factor) factor 15 or above every morning. This step is recommended for the next 2 months.

4. In the evening, clean your face again with a mild face wash or soap.

To provide more tailored advice, it would be helpful to assess your skin type, texture, and tone. Could you please attach a clinical image for more accurate guidance?"

Looking forward to your response in order to help you.

Thank you.
