Caring for Sensitive Skin

If you've found that your skin is reacting to some skin products and showing signs of irritation or redness, you probably have sensitive skin. Read on to find out how to stop blotches and irritation with tips on treating your skin with TLC.

  • Choose makeup,moisturizers and sunscreens that are hypoallergenic and fragrance free.
  • Minimize the amount of products you put on your face.
  • Don't over wash your face.
  • Don't use exfoliants.
  • Use an astringent on oily areas only, but if redness occurs discontinue.
  • Use a mild, soap-free cleanser.
  • When choosing makeup, especially foundation and blush, buy oil-free products. Makeup that is water based and noncomedogenic won't clog pores. (There are also oil-absorbing foundations that help keep oil off the face.)
  • Use a daily sunscreen that is not oil based, preferably a gel, as it's less greasy.
  • Be sure to use a minimum SPF of 15.
  • If you have breakouts, use a cleanser with salicylic acid to help exfoliate pores. There are also moisturizers that contain salicylic acid.
