Sensitive skin is easily irritated by soaps, touch, or other substances in the environment. Your skin can be thin, dry and with fine pores. It may become red and easily damaged, at the same time looking blotchy, red or "angry". Broken capillaries and vessels beneath the surface may be visible. Great care must be taken to not over-stimulate sensitive skin and hypoallergenic products must be used. Avoid harsh cleansers or products with alcohol, dyes and perfumes.
