Do you have sensitive skin like me? 

There are a couple of reasons why you should avoid fragrances in body washes. The ingredient can be harsh for those with sensitive skin and here's why: experts from the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) file fragrances as the leading cause of contact dermatitis.

Some may suffer from irritant reactions from fragrance, while others may experience a full blowout allergic reaction. The formulation of fragrance is concocted from various chemicals, so it may be hard to pinpoint just one trigger. Even products labelled 'unscented' have chemicals that 'suppress the scent.

Experts say to choose a single scene, for example, rose or freesia instead of a multicomponent scent that may trigger a reaction.

To care for your skin, here are some body cleansers that go easy and nourish your skin at the same time.
