I suffer from sensitive skin and struggle with prickly heat. Do you have any tips for preventing it?

Summer skin flare-ups are no fun. Here are our top prevention tips from Charlotte Vohtz, Founder of Green People. “Prickly heat occurs when sweat glands become blocked, preventing the skin from regulating its own temperature effectively,” explains Charlotte. “One of the easiest ways to minimise your chance of developing prickly heat is by spending more time in the shade. Loose cotton clothing, rather than synthetics, will also help keep you cooler and minimise sweating. Chemical laden and pore-clogging sun lotions can trigger prickly heat. Look for sun screen for sensitive skin, that offers broad spectrum high-factor protection that’s free from pore-clogging silicones and mineral oils.”
