WHAT IS SENSITIVE SKIN?
Sensitive skin is caused by a break-down of the skin’s inflammatory response which affects nerve endings in the top layer of skin making them become irritated. This occurs because your skin’s natural barrier function is weakened and this can be due to specific triggers like sun exposure, exposure to air pollution, frequent changes in temperature, hormonal changes and harsh product usage.

- Follow a good skincare regime without overloading the skin - Cleanse, Care, Protect, SPF
