The girls’ guide to sensitive skin

The girls’ guide to sensitive skin

Recently, I came across a forum thread entitled ‘Make-up for Sensitive Eyes’. I was struck by bh member Harmony Queen’s story of puffy eyelids and “minor cysts” – and her resulting inability to wear eye make-up. As an oily-skinned girl, I couldn’t exactly relate to her plight, but I do know one thing: every girl deserves to feel comfortable in her own skin. Considering National Eczema Week is also fast approaching, I decided it was the perfect time put our very best sensitive skin articles together in the one place. This is everything you need to know about sensitive skin and how to treat it properly…
