Characteristics Sensitive skin can be caused by a long list of factors including environmental changes, harsh ingredients, lack of vitamins, sun exposure and underlying skin conditions. Skin sensitivity is not a defined skin type as it is usually caused by external factors and their exposure to the skin over long periods of time.
Recommended skincare Look for products that are perfume-free and contain shorter ingredients lists that are easily understood. Avoid active ingredients and essential oils and focus on hydration and stable formulations.
Tip! Try to change your pillow case a couple times a week to eliminate sources of irritation. Certain soaps and detergents can cause sensitivity too. Lastly, check the 'natural' ingredients in products as they can also trigger allergic reactions.
