Sensitivity can accompany any skin type and if present, the skin would be prone to irritation, erythema and broken capillaries. There are two types of sensitive skin:
Touch sensitive - is sensitive to touch, heat and embarrassment and therefore needs to be treated gently. Otherwise, it can be treated using products for its main skin type.
Allergic sensitive - is prone to allergic reactions and must be treated with products that are designed for treating a sensitive skin. They will contain very natural ingredients, which have often been dermatologically tested for sensitive skins. These products will normally be labelled hypoallergenic.
