‘Sensitive skin care’ is governed by a few basic rules. But it is important to understand what sensitive skin is even before we delve into the rules for sensitive skin care. Sensitive skin is one which is unable to tolerate any unfavourable conditions (environmental/other), and which easily gets irritated on contact with foreign materials (including skin care products). For this reason, some products are especially labeled as sensitive skin care products. Varying from person to person is the degree of sensitivity and the sensitive skin care procedures will vary depending on that as well.
