Skin types: Sensitive

Billede

I have a weird skin type. It’s a mix of combination and sensitive and sometimes I have to treat my skin one way, and sometimes another. But here’s for all of you who either have a simple one-kind-of-skin-type-face and for those like me who can also benefit from knowing a little about this skin type.

Characteristics

  • Can be dry or oily, or both or anything in between
  • Often itchy with areas of redness
  • It irritates easily. Especially when in contact with makeup or skin products
  • Can have dry spots or slightly swollen, red areas

Skin care
Avoid cleansing products containing alcohol, test and see if you are sensitive to perfume or specific plant extracts. To be sure your skin doesn’t get irritated, look for hypoallergenic products and also calming ingredients like aloe vera, chamomile or kaolin.
