Sensitive skincare

Many individuals have a problem with sensitive skin and sensitive skin is the skin most likely to develop skin infections or to show allergic reactions to the chemicals, fragrances, and dyes found in products that come into contact with the skin.

In general, sensitive skin is defined as not a medical diagnosis, but a symptom of skin with a low tolerance for certain types of cosmetics or skincare products.

For the most part, sensitive skin is a symptom of some invisible skin problems, so finding or avoiding key causes or stimuli may help to prevent or avoid sensitive skin problems.
