The weather matters

Environmental extremes can take their toll on sensitive skin. Heat, cold sun, and wind can be too damaging even if you are wearing sunscreens. Extended exposure to cold or heat can lead to flare-ups, so try to cover your skin and keep it moisturized when you are outdoors. 

No cotton pads or cleansing wipes

Cotton pads or cleansing wipes can further irritate your complexion, if you are going to apply toner, it is better just to pour some of the product on clean hands and apply it directly to your skin. Cleansing wipes are packed with preservatives to ensure long shelf life, these compounds are likely to cause an allergic reaction on sensitive skin.

Say no to harsh acids

With an already weakened skin barrier, it is not a good idea to apply chemical peels, face scrubs or any other exfoliant that can further damage your skin. Chose mild forms of exfoliations with ingredients such as lactic acid, that are gentler on the skin.
