Sensitive skin is usually quite fine in texture with a tendency to be rosier than normal.  It is easily irritated by products and external factors.  It is also prone to redness and may have fine broken veins across the cheeks and nose.  

The best approach for sensitive skin is to use extra gentle products to keep it supple and healthy. Use hypo-allergenic skin care products as well as hypo-allergenic make-up as these products are specially formulated for this skin type.

Skin Care

Basic skin care routine for Sensitive Skin

Follow this skin care regime daily so your skin looks and feels its best. 

1. Remove eye make-up with a soothing eye-makeup remover.  Apply with a cotton wool ball then remove all traces with a clean cotton pad.

2. It is advisable not to use facial washes and soaps, as these are likely to strip your skin of oil and moisture which can increase its sensitivity even more.  Instead choose a hypo-allergenic cleansing lotion.

3. Rinse all traces of soap from your face with warm water. Then pat your face dry, take care not to rub your skin as this will cause irritation.

4. Cool your skin with a rosewater toner. Avoiding the delicate eye area as this can become more prone to dryness.

5. It is vital to keep your skin moisturised to keep it strong and supple and provide a barrier against irritants that can lead to sensitivity.  Dryness can make sensitive skin more uncomfortable, so it is a good idea to choose an unscented moisturiser. Wait a few minutes before applying your make-up.

Bonus Tip: Exfoliating your skin will help your skin care products work properly. As a general rule of thumb, exfoliate your skin twice a week. Exfoliating every day may make your skin become dry, and patchy. Use a gentle exfoliant not an exfoliating brush or polisher can irritate your skin.
