Face Wash For Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin can be problematic. It requires extra care and prolonged use of cosmetics and toiletries is a big NO. Sensitive skin is prone to react with particular ingredients in skin care products. Hence, before buying a particular product you should carefully read the list of ingredients listed on the product label. The secret to radiant looking skin which is blemish free is following a regular skin care regime which comprises of three things - cleansing, toning and moisturizing. It is also important to buy products that are fragrance and dye-free whenever possible. Also, look for products advertised as ‘noncomedogenic’ as these products do not contain oil or other ingredients known to clog pores. Avoid cleansers containing harsh grit and scrubs as they can rub the skin raw! Gentle exfoliation is the best way to obtain healthy skin. It is also important to remember not to use an excess of harsh acne-removing products and soap on sensitive skin. Soap is alkaline by nature and is too harsh for sensitive skin. Therefore, using a homemade face wash is the best way to safely deal with sensitive skin. Given below are a few easy recipes for you to try out at home. Read on to learn more.
