Sensitive skin is an intolerant skin type, often reacting severely to a number of skin care products and ingredients. It is often red, sore, itchy and uncomfortable, making it a difficult skin type to care for. It is important to use soothing and calming products that contain gentle ingredients to treat and repair the damaged skin barrier while taking care of other concerns such as wrinkles, acne or rosacea. Simple products that don’t contain harsh chemicals or fragrances are ideal and help to minimise the risk of painful irritation. Choose gentle, lightweight sunscreens to protect the skin from the damaging effects of the sun.
