Natural Beauty Solutions for Sensitive Skin

Updated on November 24, 2017

Sensitive skin is a condition that affects millions of people, it can greatly limited one’s ability to find effective skin care treatments since standard products contain many harsh chemicals that can further irritate sensitive skin. Having sensitive skin restricts a person’s options in skin care products, which is one of the reasons why home remedies, and natural products are becoming more and more popular among this crowd.

Using Natural beauty and skin care products, whether commercially made, or home made, is a good way to find effective products that are gently on your skin. Products such as carrier oils, butters and essential oils cause less irritation to the skin, helping to soothe highly sensitive areas of your face and body. These natural products do not contain many of the drying alcohols, harsh synthetic ingredients and perfumes that are present in many drug store products.

Best Natural Beauty Products for Sensitive Skin

Some good natural beauty products to use for sensitive skin may include such ingredients as cucumber, hawthorn, rosemary, thyme, grapefruit, tangerine, Lavender, Chamomile, Apricot Kernel Oil, Avocado oil, green tea, various healthy acids and vitamins, including Vitamin A, C, E and K. These sensitive skin care ingredients can often help to soothe the skin, and reduce inflammation.

When dealing with sensitive facial skin, products should be fragrance-free as well as hypo-allergenic. Harsh exfoliants should also be avoided. It is also important to opt for mild and soap free cleansers when picking out sensitive skin care products.

Before using any skin product, make sure to do a patch test - first try a little bit of the product on the inner side of your wrist. This will help determine any allergic reaction you might have to the product.

Sensitive skin often requires the use of skin moisturizers, since such skin often does not retain water well. Applying a skin moisturizer on your skin daily will help your sensitive skin to retain water better. Skin with high water content is better protected from any bacterial and fungal infections, as well as making skin feel smooth and silky. Reducing the epidermal water loss with the use of skin moisturizers will help create a protective barrier between your skin and the environment. Moisturizers will result in your skin getting fewer wrinkles and helping your skin become more protected from sun damage. Try to apply moisturizers and emollients on your skin at least once a day before going to sleep to help retain water.

In addition to cosmetic products, Specialists’ advise you to combine your natural skin care, with some dietary changes. You can really improve the tone of your skin by adding into your diet such foods as whole grains, fruits and vegetables, beans, flaxseed oil, and high-fiber snacks.
