Is Your Skin Sensitive?

- Cosmo Editor

Your skin is sensitive if you have three or more of the following symptoms…

You flush more than others do after consuming alcohol, a hot beverage or eating spicy foods.

Spritzing on certain perfumes or wearing jewellery made of nickel triggers a rash in the spots where they touched your skin.

Your hair shade is naturally blonde or red and your complexion is fair or dotted with freckles.

Exposure to the sun, cold, heat, humidity, or wind aggravates your skin which might sting, itch, or feel tight for up to several days.

Rough fabrics (wool, linen) feel uncomfortable against your skin and can make it itchy and inflamed for up to a few days post-contact.
