Having dry sensitive skin can present a big challenge when it comes to finding the right products to use without causing irritation to your skin. Fortunately, there are more products for sensitive skin on the shelves than there were ten years ago. According to Los Angeles dermatologist Dr. Kathryn Johnston, hypoallergenic skin products are a must for those with dry sensitive skin. Most products contain fragrances and chemicals that can exacerbate acne and sother skin problems, so it is best to stick to products made for sensitive skin. Basis is a dermatologist-recommended soap for sensitive skin and contains aloe vera, which helps with acne and sensitive skin. For those that prefer liquid cleanser, Dr. Johnston recommends Purpose Gentle Cleansing Wash, an oil-free liquid cleanser for sensitive skin. see products

Are you familiar with mircodermabrasion? Microdermabrasion uses physical exfoliation to help slough away the top layer of skin to give it a healthy glow and help increase cell turnover. Have you been to a spa or dermatologist's office for a microdermabrasion treatment? If so, you may have loved how each and every dead skin cell was removed and may have benefited from softer skin, less noticeable fine lines and even a reduction in acne. Microdermabrasion can benefit oily or dry skin, but those with sensitive skin should proceed with caution. See products
