Sensitive skin can be sensitive to everything and anything - soap, being touched or indeed some everyday objects. This skin type may be very thin, damage easily with red blotches and may show broken small blood vessels. You may burn easily and be especially worried about itchy skin and hives. You may have allergies and have to follow a special diet. Extra special care is needed, soap free cleansers, as natural as possible moisturisers and freedom from harsh additives.
