Sensitive skin has been compromised by environmental stresses and is characterized as easily irritated, fragile, thin, and red. Rosacea and vascular conditions are common with sensitive skin. The goal with this skin type is to use products that are extremely gentle, nonirritating, calming, and protective.
Congested skin occurs when a buildup of dead skin cells, sebum (oil), and dirt clog the pores. This can lead to rough, dehydrated skin and uneven texture. The goal with this skin type is to exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate. Incorporate a gentle cleanser, then exfoliate your skin two to three times a week using mild AHA/BHAs, or soft beads and granules.
