What is sensitive skin? 

To determine if your skin is sensitive, dermatologists look for the following things: 

  • Skin reactions such as pustules, skin bumps, or skin erosion
  • Very dry skin which doesn't properly protect nerve endings in the skin
  • A tendency toward blushing and skin flushing

How to care for sensitive skin

  • Use Fragrance free and deodarant free soaps. Soap-free cleansers such as mild cleansing bars and sensitive-skin bars along with most liquid facial cleansers have less potential for facial skin irritation than soaps. 
  • Moisturizing products help skin hold on to moisture so it resists drying and abrasion

 

What type of products should you use on sensitive skin?

“skin-friendly” products contain:

  • Only a few ingredients
  • Little or no fragrance

If you have sensitive skin, avoid products containing:

  • Antibacterial or deodorant ingredients
  • Alcohol
  • Retinoids or alpha-hydroxy acids
