Here are 5 such tips to keep in mind:
1. Trail Run Before Application
The fundamental rule is to test everything before you try. As you already know, most products which work on theordinary skin will not be kind to sensitive skin, and thus, it is highly advisable to first apply a small patch of the product on the face and leave it over there for 24 hours. If there is no reaction, it is a go-ahead.
2. Friends Of Sensitive Skin
Yes, we are talking about using those products and formulae which are proven friendly to sensitive skin. Concerning make-up, you should prefer hypo allergic, non-comedogenic and non-greasy formulae which are enriched with antioxidants and moisturizers.
You should go for light textures which do not plug pores and enable the skin to breathe. Also, you should consider using products which work against pollution and the sun.

One of the key ingredients of perfect skin care is being cautious about what you use. When purchasing makeup, you should exercise due caution regarding the ingredients used in the product and whether the products qualify the necessary tests.

4. Take Care Of Your Beauty Products
Just like your skin, your skincare products also need care and attention. To ensure that your products last longer and work as effectively as new, you must find them a cool, dry place. Do not leave them uncapped or in contact with theatmosphere. Make sure you clean up brushes after use.
It is necessary to exfoliate once a week to open pores and remove dead cells. Exfoliating offers dual benefits: it makes your skin smoother and brightens up your complexion. By inculcating it in your personal care regime, your skin will absorb better the active ingredients of the beauty products you use for make-up.
