Sensitive skin tends to be thin and delicate with fine pores. It flushes easily, is prone to broken capillaries, is frequently allergic and can be rashy. It reacts quickly to both heat and cold; therefore, it sunburns and windburns easily. Temperature changes, some detergents, cosmetics and alcohol (used on the skin) can all cause irritation, leaving the skin red and blotchy, with visible surface veins. If you have this type of skin, use sun-screen lotions or creams. Choose products that do not contain potential allergens such as fragrance or PABA sunscreens.
DAILY CARE: Cleanse your face with a gentle milk or cream cleanser, rinse thoroughly with tepid water and pat the skin dry with a soft towel; do not use a rough towel. Never use any makeup or perfume without first trying a little of it on the inside of your wrist to see the reaction of your skin to it, for very few items of makeup agree with a sensitive skin. Use a moisturizer both day and night to keep your sensitive-delicate skin hydrated and protected.
