Sensitive is a term that describes skin that is more prone to negative reactions, redness, blemishes, or inflammation. While there are several diagnosable types of sensitive skin (like rosacea), most people with sensitive skin simply react stronger to certain products and environmental triggers than those with normal skin.
If you have a sensitive skin type, be especially careful about trying new products, especially when it comes to certain chemical products like benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, or retinol, which can cause irritation. Consider consulting a dermatologist to find out how to select the right products for sensitive skin. Learn more
