What is sensitive skin?
Does your skin easily redden, sting, or feel irritated when you use skin care? Have rosacea or lupus? Then you have sensitive skin.
This skin type is easily affected by chemicals, external conditions like extreme weather temperatures, oral and topical medications, and overheating from physical exercise are few aggravators. Your face flushes easily and reddens, and can have blotchy patches with burning, hives, itching, and/or a rash.
Do not use direct heat, hot water including hot showers on red or sensitive skin, and cover with wet cotton pads under facial steamers.
