Do I Have Sensitive Skin?
Sensitive skin isn't actually a 'skin type', it's more often a skin condition or skin state.
Sensitive skin symptoms like redness, soreness, inflammation and changes in texture can present as a reaction to external or internal stimuli.
Unless you are genetically predisposed to having a sensitive skin condition like rosacea, dermatitis or psoriasis, you may have sensitised your skin by using too many active skincare ingredients. Other triggers of sensitive skin include:
The weather and climate where you live.
Exposure to heat and UV rays.
Certain foods or fragrances.
Changes in hormones or medications.
