Question is my skin sensitive?

hi, is there a way to tell if youve got sensitive skin or not? because i get quiet a few spots...and i never know what sort of treatments to buy, should i be really careful and gentle to my skin or should i be a lil rougher, using a daily scrub, like clean and clear....
is there a way to tell other than takign months experimenting with diffrent products, that would end up costing me loads

-thnx in advance

My aeth says that I have sensitive skin and I know I do. For me, if I use harsh cleanser, I will end up with some hard and red spots on my face. It's not pimples or anything mind you. It's just red and hard and itchy sometimes. After a while, it goes away. If you have sensitive skin, really - you need to stay away from scrubs and do NOT overcleanse. And try not to use too many products at the same time. And introduce new skin regime slowly, i.e. rather than start using every day, use every other day until your skin is used to the new product. Good luck.

Re: is my skin sensitive?

hi, thnx...ive never come out with little res spots or anything...and i cleanse about 3 times a day coz my skin gets really oily....and ive never been itchy, or had spots, like u say...so does this mean that mabey i havent got sensitive skin and shouldnt worry about using a scrub?
becasue what ive started doing is using a gentle cleanser during the day then a scrub, with beads in at night..

Hmm - you wash 3 times a day and your skin don't itch or get red and all - base on my own experience, then your skin is not sensitive or as sensitive as mine then. In any event, use the gentlest kind of scrub you can find commercially.
