People with sensitive skin are the ones who suffer from easy allergies. Initially the allergy may start of as sun allergy or allergy to soaps, jewelry, certain foods etc. In long standing cases the list of allergens can be so long that the skin may react hyper sensitively to everything around it. Such skin types should be very careful while choosing their skin care products. Products containing chemicals like fragrance or PABA sunscreens should not be used. Never use any cosmetics without first trying a little of it on the inside of the wrist to check for any allergic reactions. As sensitive skin may burn easily, it should always be shielded from direct sun. However physical barrier methods like sun coats and umbrellas should always be preferred over chemical applications. Sensitive skin aggravates when it is over moisturized. Therefore after moisturizing, blot off excess cream and dust a little talc over the area to prevent friction due to oiliness. A good helping of papayas and green tea can act as a healing agent for such skin types.
