Skin Care Tip:

Use Fragrance-Free if you have sensitive skin!

For some more than others, the skin is a very delicate thing.  Sensitive can get red or irritated much easier than normal skin.  It can also be dry and more prone to sunburn.  Many of these types of people have a very hard time finding skin care products that are tolerable.  Some of these people also have rosacea, which means they get red and flushed easily.  One of the keys is to look for products that are fragrance-free and thus hypoallergenic.  Avoid products with perfumes and dyes.  The best skin care lines for sensitive skin are the physician-strength ones and neaclear and La Roche Posay seem to be the most popular, best tolerated and most effective. 

Skin care products are an essential part of an effective skin care regimen for people with sensitive skin.
