Generally, people with sensitive skin tend to show unfavorable reactions to perfumes, pigments, detergents, and even makeup. Hence, a prior assessment of these is ideal for determining what you might react to.
In morning care, it is essential to use a soap preferably with neutral pH and without dyes or perfumes, constantly applying very carefully and removing warm water.
