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.
Sun damage is caused by too much exposure to the sun's harmful rays. Primary effects are fine lines and wrinkles, loss of collagen and elastin, and hyperpigmentation. The goal with this skin type is to use products that are reparative and protective, such as Vitamin C to repair skin and sun screen to prevent future damage.
