Sensitive skin is a condition where the skin is easily prone to react to certain characteristics such as environmental changes, substances applied, temperature changes, etc.  The tell tale signs that you have sensitive skin are, blushing, itching and easily sunburning.  Here are some factors that can cause symptoms of sensitive skin:

*lack of protective skin layer ( called the acid mantle) caused by over-drying the skin through the use of stripping soaps, alcohol, scrubs and certain acids.
*dryness and dehydration
*excess oil
*unprotected sun exposure ( even in cold climates)
*lack of proper skin care products
*overuse of skin care products ( exfoliates in particular)
*use of artificially fragranced makeup and skin care products
*harsh climates or sudden changes in climate
*air pollutions
*dyes in products

Look for products that have natural ingredients such as Shea butter, Chamomile, Neroli oil.  They all have natural healing properties that help to calm the skin.

Lastly, be sure to read the label before buying.  Look for products that say "for sensitive skin" and for products that are free of additives such as Formaldehyde, PABA, dyes and artificial fragrances, and harsh preservatives.
