Sensitive skin is a common problem that can either be something we suffer with all our life, or something that comes on suddenly; either way, it’s a tricky skin type to work with that needs lots of carefully planned TLC.
If you suffer from dry and sensitive skin you need to be very careful with what ingredients and formulations you use as part of your skin care routine.
The best products for dry and sensitive skin are very gentle natural skin care products. If you find new product to try we suggest to gradually introduce them giving your skin time to adjust and get used to new ingredients. If your skin starts reacting (which can be anything from drying up, to breaking out, to feeling tight and raw) then stop using the skin care product immediately and do not persevere hoping that your skin will get used to it as you risk traumatising the skin.
If you are looking for the best products for dry and sensitive skin we suggest using natural skin care products that care for skin without stripping it of any natural oils. For example, a good natural cream cleanser for dry and sensitive skin, a gentle natural toner for sensitive skin and a light moisturiser is a good place to start. The last thing you want to do is aggravate your skin with anything harsh like manual exfoliators, so instead rely on a flannel or a muslin cloth soaked I warm water to gently exfoliate skin however, make sure to avoid extreme hot or cold temperatures.
Lastly, sensitive skin is often dry and dehydrated, so put aside time every week to give skin a good natural moisture boost. The best way to do this is to use a natural moisturiser from your skin care routine; apply a thick layer (don’t rub it in, just let it sit on the skin) and leave it to gently soak in for as long as it needs. Sensitive skin is a tricky type to work with, and it's worth spending time to source the best products for dry and sensitive skin so you can keep it happy.
