What you can do if you have sensitive skin? 

It is essential to keep a good hydration to improve the appearance of the skin and protect it from external aggressions. Specialists recommend moisturize your facial skin every morning and evening, before bedtime, and your body after every shower.

Another important point you have to take into account is the protection from the sun rays that is one of the main responsible factors that makes your skin sensitive. It is essential to use creams with SPF protection, even in winter, cloudy or rainy days because clouds do not stop ultraviolet rays that can damage your skin.

For those with sensitive skin it is essential to use appropriate beauty and cosmetic products, without alcohol, or preservatives that respect the natural balance of the skin. Fortunately, cosmetic companies are more and more throwing specific lines for sensitive skin.  

Keep a cleaning daily routine in sensitive skin is essential, but it is important to avoid rubbing for preventing irritation. For example, exfoliation is only recommended to do once a week. You have to be especially careful with the cleaning products you use, because sensitive skin can react badly.

Similarly, it is recommended to reduce the shower time, to use warm water to take a shower and cold water for your face, because hot water dehydrates the skin. It is also wise to drink plenty of liquids, avoid stress and fatigue, extreme environmental conditions (either cold or drought) and spicy foods.
