Sensitive skin care can be best achieved with natural, botanically based products. There are many causes of sensitive skin, from allergies to underlying disease, but no matter the cause the treatment is the same. When choosing a sensitive skin care regimen, look for the following botanical ingredients to soothe and treat your sensitive skin:
Honey – a natural humectant with anti-microbial properties. Honey can be used on even the most sensitive skin.
Aloe barbadensis leaf – Aloe is fabulous as a botanical healer. It is also anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and promotes the removal of cellular skin wastes and skin regeneration.
Chamomile – skin emollient with antiseptic and antibacterial properties. Reduces inflammation, strengthens capillary walls, and relieves skin discomfort.
Calendula – derived from marigolds, this antioxidant-rich ingredient has wound healing and skin soothing properties and is found in many sensitive skin care products.
Vitamin K (phytonadione) – supports healthy blood vessels so common in sensitive skin. Also reduces inflammation and provides anti-oxidant support.
In addition to these ingredients, antioxidant support from vitamin A, C, and E and botanicals like green tea are also very soothing and beneficial to sensitive skin. The most important step in a sensitive skin care routine is UVA/UVB protection. This should be achieved by using a 100% chemical-free mineral sunscreen with an SPF 30 or higher. The chemicals in many sunscreens can inflame and irritate sensitive skin. A mineral sunscreen is soothing and protective. Visit dmSkincare to get detail information on sensitive skin.
