Question: How do I know if I have sensitive skin?

People who suffer with sensitive skin often have red blotchy and irritable skin. If your skin is either too oily or too dry, you could suffer from sensitive skin. Sensitive skin is skin that is prone to rashes, skin eruptions, pustules and bumps. If you suspect you have sensitive skin, do contact a dermatologist who will guide you accordingly. It is important to follow a good skin care routine if you have sensitive skin.

Keep the following natural skin care tips in mind when it comes to skin care for sensitive skin:

Cleansing: Using a good cleanser is most essential. A good cleanser would be one that is mildly foam based or even a disposable cleanser cloth. When washing your face, use cold water and not hot water. Warm water or even very hot water will burn and irritate your sensitive skin. Avoid facial scrubs if you have sensitive skin.

Moisturizing: The next step is to moisturize. After cleansing, apply a water based moisturizer, not a cream based one. Use separate moisturizers for your face, neck and the rest of your body.

Make up: While applying make up, use products that are hypoallergenic. This simply means that there are no products that will irritate your skin. Do not apply too much make up on your face. Most of make up available (foundation, mascara and so on) will only irritate your face even more.

Sun block: It is advisable to use a sun block with a sun protection factor of 15-20. Exposure to the rays of the sun is another reason for skin breaking out.

There are several skin herbal remedies which could help you to deal with sensitive skin. These are good for the skin because they do not contain any harsh chemicals. Many of them can be found in your own kitchen. For example, apply a natural face mask made out of fruit. Or mix yogurt and cucumber and apply it on your face. This is an excellent face mask. Aloe Vera has anti inflammatory properties and is cooling or sensitive skin. Be careful when using natural products as well. Even organic products can cause reactions. Always test a small area of your skin before using it completely.
