Today I’m going to tackle a problematic subject for many of us and share with you what have I learned so far: sensitive skin and alternative natural care.
If this is not a permanent state, every other woman has experienced at least once in her lifetime a skin that requires special attention due to sensibility. Factors (internal or external) that lead to this condition may vary from person to person and it’s a general good rule to consult a dermatologist before doing anything. With a specialist help, you can decide the best products for personal care when dealing with condition but remember that sometimes natural products are, if not a good alternative, a suplementary addition in your beauty routine.
But, some important aspects are there for your attention before any radical decision:
– First, not all that says on the label “all natural ingredients” is good for your skin. Do an extensive research and, before anything, talk to your doctor.
– Second, if a product is natural doesn’t mean its good for your skin. There are a lot of natural products that cause serious irritations.
– Third, if it’s a permanent condition (like wrinkles or skin damage) it is recommended to try specific synthetic products.
In my daily beauty routine I’ve managed to insert without effort the following:
– coconut oil – this specific oil can be used for hair care, skin care, massage. As you can see I’ve got a whole jar of coconut oil:). I generally use it as moisturizer instead of body lotions after shower and I’ve noticed that my skin is softer than after using an average body lotion.
– olive oil – it’s benefits are countless and for the beauty routing can used as: makeup remover, massage oil for nails, hair masks or conditioner (depending on your hair type).
– vinegar – it’s main use – after washing my hair with shampoo I apply vinegar and give it a little massage and this is what gives my hair extra shine and softness. Also it’s great for dry scalp and dandruff.
–aloe vera – its a heavenly treatment for reducing redness and increasing moisturizing. You can use the aloe vera gel directly from the leaf or you can mix this gel with different other ingredients for home-made masks (like eggs, honey, milk).
– clay – perfect to use for reducing sebum, safest way to use cosmetic clay.
What are your natural products that you use on a regular basis?
Until the next time, wear red lipstick and glitter all the way:-)
