If you have sensitive skin, you’ll know it’s no fun. Fortunately there are simple things you can do to minimize the chance of a sensitive skin flare up.

  • Choose make-up, moisturisers and sunscreens without the irritants listed above.
  • Avoid soap, which can strip the skin of protective oils and upset  the pH balance of your skin. Choose a soap-free cleanser instead.
  • Wear a SPF 30+ sunscreen every day, and check that it’s PABA free.
  • Avoid Soaps and strong detergents.
  • Avoid contact with rough or coarse materials.
  • Avoid exposure to the sun and wind.
  • Avoid colours, fragrances, lanolin and propylene glycol.
  • Avoid para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA).
