Solutions for Sensitive Skin

Fight redness, dry skin, and other bumps and blemishes caused by sensitive skin with these natural beauty tips.


| March/April 2014


What is sensitive skin? Although up to 50 percent of women say they have it, the exact definition varies depending on whom you ask. And despite the vast number of skin-care products targeted at treating sensitive skin, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Sensitive skin reactions can range from breakouts to allergic reactions or even dry, chapped skin.

The organ most exposed to the elements, skin faces an onslaught of external stressors such as dry air, harsh winds and pollution. The health of our skin is also affected by internal factors such as diet, stress, lifestyle choices (smoking, alcohol, caffeine consumption) and genetics.

If you think you have sensitive skin, first be sure the products you use are made with gentle ingredients. When trying a new product, test a dime-size amount on a small area of your skin before using it liberally.
