Does your skin sometimes feel tight or hot, even when it's not 35 degrees?
Does your skin feel itchy? Does your skin easily turn red or flush, even when you haven't been served by that charming and ridiculously good-looking barista at your local cafe?
If you answered yes to any or all of the above questions, you probably have sensitive skin.
To put it in simple terms, sensitive skin reacts when it shouldn't.
These reactions can vary in type and degree of severity, but they're definitely unwanted!
If you have sensitive skin, you should try and identify triggers which cause your skin to flare up and avoid them.
It is also important to choose skincare and makeup products which are specially formulated for sensitive skin as they often are free of fragrances and other common irritants, and contain ingredients which calm angry skin and reduce the redness.
Read on to learn more about some of our favourite products for sensitive skin.
