Natural Face Products for Sensitive Skin
Sensitive skin is not a skin type, per se. It is a condition that any type of skin can have. For example, you have regular oily skin or sensitive oily skin.
It isn't always easy to treat this level of sensitivity, especially when combination or oily skin is involved. In order to control oil production in these types of skin, you need stronger products. The only problem is that they eventually lead to irritation. One of the best solutions for treating sensitive skin is the use of natural skin care products.
Natural face products may contain ingredients that some people are allergic to, so it's very sensible that you read the ingredient list before purchasing the product. And don't forget to do a patch test before you try any new product.
If you decide on using a traditional skin care product, then make sure that it is alcohol free and fragrance free. Be wary because some more traditional products contain other types of fillers, such as dyes, that can also dry out your skin and lead to irritation.
If you are not satisfied with the benefits that traditional skin products have to offer, then you might want to try making some skin care products of your own. If you're up to the challenge, here are some ingredients you might want to use:
*cucumbers *licorice root *green tea *aloe vera
Cucumbers and yoghurt make a great face mask for sensitive skin. Licorice root is an ingredient that can be added to other natural masks and cleansers to help avoid irritation.
Green tea can also be added to natural astringents or used as soaked tea bags. Aloe vera is a great way to soothe any type of skin irritation. You simply cut open a leaf and use the gel-like interior to soothe the skin irritation.
Other recipes you can try are:
*Make a natural exfoliant by mixing grapefruit and oatmeal together.
*Make a facial mask by mashing fruits together. Be careful not to use too much lemon because it may irritate your skin. Add some honey to use its antibacterial benefits.
*Pure almond or jojoba oil makes a good cleanser.
*Extra virgin olive oil can be used as a moisturizer.
If you have both aging skin and sensitive skin, you may find it more difficult to find anti aging products or products for skin wrinkles. Many of the ingredients found in products that promote skin rejuvenation can be irritating, so it's wise to use natural products that contain gentle natural ingredients - such as snail serum.
This biological component can help promote the generation of new, healthy cells while it helps dissolve scar tissue and damaged skin. The composition of this natural ingredient is very similar to that of our own skin, making it a great option for treating common skin afflictions without experiencing irritating side-effects.
Snail serum is a potent natural ingredient that can convert simple face products for wrinkles and skin care lotions into the perfect treatment for sensitive and aging skin. This ingredient is gentle enough not to cause side effects, yet powerful enough to treat a wide range of different skin problems. Choosing a natural wrinkles cream from the BERRYSISTIBLE line of products is a safe and effective way of treating your sensitive skin problems.
