If you experience seasonal or occasional skin sensitivity, here are some tips that may help you cope.
1. Patch Test New Products: f you have sensitive skin, before trying any new skincare products or cosmetics, it is recommended that you do a patch test for compatibility. Apply a small amount to the side of your neck and wait 24 to 48 hours to see if there is a reaction.
2. Go Fragrance-Free: As noted above, fragrance and the phthalates found in fragrance can be culprits when it comes to irritating skin. Opt for fragrance-free cleansers, creams, deodorants and other personal care products.
