Sensitive Skin: Delicate

Sensitive skin is characterized by an overreaction to external influences. Sensitivity can be present in normal, dry and oily skins and at any age. It is most common among people of Celtic descent, particularly redheads and people with blond hair and blue eyes. Sensitive skin is thinner than other skin types and the nerve endings and blood vessels are closer to the surface of the skin, which is believed to be one of the causes of the oversensitivity.

Sensitive skin needs to be treated especially gently. The causes of irritation can vary with each individual, so a sensitive skin care program can vary. Generally, however, products containing alcohol, artificial colors and artificial fragrances should be avoided. Highly active ingredients such as aromatherapy essential oils or alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) should be used in very low percentages or may need to be avoided completely. Preservatives have also been known to cause problems for some people with sensitive skin,
