Senisitive skin : If prone to allergic reactions stick to similar detergents, make up and hair products that are hypo allergic. If you tan easily were a SPF based lotion or cream. You don't have to wear sun tan lotion anymore as there are beauty creames that contain SPF. If you have an allergy to nickel, stick to jewly that is gold, sterling silver, or platinum. Stick to organic based products they are less harsh.
