Skincare for Sensitive Skin

Skincare for Sensitive Skin

I would say I normally have quite good skin, I get the odd blemish and the odd dry spot but generally my skin is quite clear, until recently that is. The past few weeks I've been having so many issues with my skin, blemishes, a lot of dry spots and general dullness. In an effort to combat this I've decided to strip back my skincare to natural and gentle products and those that I know work with my skin. I decided to go back to the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish as it's really gentle and I know that my skin doesn't react badly to it. Likewise with The Body Shop Camomile Gentle Eye Remover, I've been using this for a good few months and can't fault it. 

To combat redness I've been using the Pai Rosehip BioGenerate Fruit & Seed Oil Blend, which is a serum used for reducing redness and scaring. I've been using this for a little over a week morning and night and I'd say on the second day I noticed a huge difference in the redness on my cheeks. I'm genuinely so impressed with this product that I've looked into exactly how it works. It contains sterols and delivers Trans-Retinoic Acid directly to the epidermis, which is then converted to Vitamin A to boost the skins natural healing process. This basically means it speeds up the healing process and encourages growth of new cells. If you suffer from redness I would highly recommend using this product as you'll see a difference in days.

On top of this I've been adding my favourite Clarins Hydraquench Moisturiser , which is a thick cream moisturiser and then the Clarins Skin Repair Concentrate for any extra dry patches.

I think the key thing to remember when your skin is reacting badly is to just stop using anything new and go back to your tried and tested products. As a beauty blogger I'm constantly trying out new products and sometimes things just don't agree with my skin so I have to strip it back.
