1-Does sensitive skin need special sun care?
Yes. Sensitive skin is particularly reactive to sunlight and is, therefore, very susceptible to sun damage. It is extremely important that your sensitive skin is protected from exposure to sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays. As with all skin care formulated for sensitive skin, tailored sun protection is designed to be highly tolerant and compliant with the highest scientific standard for UVA/UVB filters.
2-Why should I integrate sun face care into my daily routine?
Given its increased exposure to harmful UV rays, facial skin is more susceptible to sun damage than body skin. To avoid cellular DNA damage, photoageing and pigmentation disorders it is important to protect facial skin whenever it is exposed to the sun, even in cloudy conditions.
3-Do I need to use a separate day cream and SPF?
For some skin types, and when a higher SPF is required, a dedicated sun protection product will substitute the day cream. Dry skin types will still prefer to use a day cream and add extra sun protection at the end of the routine. Your choice will be influenced by your lifestyle, personal preference and how your skin reacts to environmental factors such as humidity. The highest SPF applied determines the protection level (i.e. if you were to add a sun protection factor product with an SPF of 30 to a day cream with SPF 15 then the total protection level would be SPF30).

4-Are face masks a good idea?
Yes, face masks are particularly good at replenishing dry and dehydrated skin. Eucerin recommends that you use your night cream and apply a little bit more of it that you normally would to cover your face, throat and decollete. Night cream is richer than day cream, contains regenerating actives such as panthenol and is free-from SPF or pigment.
5- What do I have to keep in mind for using make up if I suffer from Atopic skin disease?
Ask your dermatologist or pharmacist for recommended products that are tested in eczema patients and contain no perfumes or common allergens. If you have acne always use non-comedogenic products for oily or combination skin.
