Conquering Sensitive Skin

Some people are born with sensitive skin; others have it temporarily. Cold climate, stress, travel and sleep deprivation are all contributing factors. No matter which camp you fall in, if your skin is consistently feeling pink, dry, flaky, or inflamed, it’s time to look into a new skincare regime.
