How to Care for Your Sensitive Facial Skin

Skin woes got you down? Don't let sensitive facial skin have the upper hand

If you have sensitive facial skin, you know how difficult it is to maintain. Sunscreens can cause an outbreak. Makeup can irritate it. Even sensitive skin treatments can cause bad reactions. But don't worry just yet, there's a silver lining out there (hurray!). There are ways to treat and even cure some of your worst sensitive facial skin issues. And to start you off, here are a few tips to help you get beautiful skin gently.

Begin by avoiding harsh chemicals whenever possible. If you've had sensitive skin your whole life, you probably know which chemicals cause adverse reactions for you (benzoyl peroxide, retinols, and PABA are common culprits). This means you need to know what's in your face wash, makeup, moisturizer, and whatever other facial products you're using. Natural or organic products are a great gentle alternative. To find the right moisturizer for you sensitive facial skin, check out these products.

Next, be selective about which facial regimens to cut out of your routine. If you have extremely sensitive skin, you probably don't need to use a face scrub every day. The harsher the product is, the more infrequent it should become in your facial maintenance. To customize the perfect sensitive skin care routine for you, browse through these seven habits for perfect skin.

Now comes the most important step: listen to your skin. Ignoring itchiness, redness, or any other issue will only breed more issues. But be careful not to over-treat skin either. The goal is to have beautiful skin on a regular basis, using treatments sparingly to enhance your natural beauty.

Sensitive facial skin does not have to be a life sentence. Listen to your skin, and your natural beauty will shine through.
