Senstive skin can be a nagging problem to deal with, as it increases your susceptibility to redness, itching and uncomfortable dryness.
As a rule, avoid products with fragrances, alcohols and colourants as these might contain specific ingredients that could result in an allergic reaction.
Also look out for phrases like “dermatologist-tested” or “allergy-tested” to minimise your chances of a nasty flare-up.
And opt for products that contain ingredients like lipids, ceramides, hyaluronic acid, glycerin that help rebuild skin’s barrier layer and hold onto moisture.
