Sensitive skin is skin suffering from Rosacea, Eczema or just sensitivity.
Sensitive skin should seek out non comedogenic which doesn’t clog the pores and hypoallergenic brands to prevent sensitivity.
And avoid alcohol,fragrance and phthalates which cause irritation and skin reaction.
During my teens my skin often got inflamed with different skincare brands, I suffered with a irritated scalp and contact dermatitis.
Reading my teen magazine Beauty pages I learned about Hypoallergenic skincare available at the time and Cosmetics. Which made an improvement. The doctor prescribed me E45 and Hydrocortisone for the Dermatitis. I occasionally used Neutrogena Shampoo to get the build up from scalp cleared. I learnt from the hairdressers in later years it sulfates and silicones in shampoos that cause irritation of the scalp. In my teens my mum bought me Avon Clearskin skincare but Simple skincare was a little kinder . In my early twenties my skin still had problems sensitive but very oily, a friend suggested a local beauty salon for a facial. I booked in for a Facial it was a Clarins salon and I couldn’t believe the difference in my skin even for a few weeks after. So I booked in for a basic facial every few weeks and after a few months I could see a difference. I used there moisturiser after. And when I could afford it I bought more Clarins products over the years as it was the best I had tried.
The last few years my skin as suffered again I was Ill with my Thyroid and you could see the difference in my skin. I wasnt working due to the illness and I could only afford Garnier skincare. Illness can also affect the skin .As soon as I started earning a bit of money I went to Clarins Beauty Bar and had a few mini facials.I could see a difference my skin softer, clearer and pores less visible. And I bought some new products from the range.
So if your skin starts to get irritated try a sensitive skin brand to see if you see a difference.
