Quick Tip: Caring for Sensitive Skin

People with sensitive skin should avoid products that can irritate skin, such as those containing benzoyl peroxide.

Instead, wash with a gentle, soap-free moisturizing cleanser and prevent pimples by applying a product that contains salicylic acid at night to acne-prone areas. Use just a dab wherever you tend to get whiteheads, blackheads, or red bumps. If using it daily makes your skin sting or turn red, cut back to every other day.

In the morning, finish by applying a broad-spectrum SPF 15 or SPF 30 moisturizer with zinc or titanium dioxide, preferably one with chemical-free ingredients that won’t irritate skin. Acne-prone? Use a tinted moisturizer for an overall flawless finish.
