What is sensitive skin?
There are many different types of skin sensitivity, from dry, flaky skin, to red patches, blemishes, and tired-looking, dull complexions, and they each have their own cause. Sensitive skin can be the result of environmental factors, such as cold air or central heating, but can also be a reaction to ingredients in beauty products, make up, and soaps, so it's important to find products which support your skin without drying it out or causing breakouts, soreness, or redness.
