Sensitive Skin
Sensitive skin is generally translucent and clear skin until it flares up when it comes into contact with an irritant. Blood rushes to the surface at the first hint of agitation which leads to blotchiness, and discomfort. Thin skin is almost always sensitive - the epidermal layer is thinner than average and therefore provides less protection for the underlying skin layers. This thinness also makes any changes in the skin's blood circulation more noticeable. You could take an allergy test to find out its possibility as the cause for your sensitive skin.
