Summer Sensitive Skin

This summer was the first time that I got a sunburn on my face since I was a kid. I have been out in the sun even more, actually suntanning and just running around.
So I went to go put on my mineral powder foundation the other morning before work and the brush scratched me! I can admit that its due for a deep cleaning and conditioning of its bristles but it still hurt way too much. Then I noticed that putting on eyeliner started to hurt too.. and my lips get chapped so easily from eating regular foods.

I don’t have sensitive skin: its pretty normal with some oily patches sometimes and the apples of my cheeks get dry in the winter. So I knew what was going on.. even though my face isn’t brunt red and peeling and all the other signs of having a sun burn… it know it was a very deep burn.
