What’s Your Skin Type, and Why Does It Matter?

Whether they experience stinging, rashes, itching or flaking, half of American women find they have sensitive skin. “It’s not a medical term,” says New York City dermatologist Francesca Fusco, M.D. “All it means is your skin is easily irritated—whether it’s after applying cream, taking a hot shower or shaving.” It can become red or swollen, break out in pimples or a rash—or just feel tight, tingly and uncomfortable. If you fall in under “sensitive”, you belong in one of four categories: acne, rosacea, burning and stinging, and contact dermatitis. All suffer from inflation. Whatever your skin type, make sure you buy the best products for you and treat your skin kindly!
