Managing sensitive skin can be tricky. Here are four tips maintaining the specific skin type.
LOOK FOR HEALING INGREDIENTS
Aloe, shea butter, cocoa butter and rose are especially good for sensitive skin, which is usually prone to inflammation and irritation. These nourishing ingredients cool reactive skin and help create a barrier against environmental stresses.
OPT FOR SUGAR SCRUBS OVER SALT
Exfoliation is still necessary for sensitive skin (unless you’re experiencing a rash or massive breakout). Salt can be rather abrasive, so opt for sugar scrubs, instead. Sugar, particularly brown sugar, contains glycolic acid which hydrates the skin as it gently sloughs off dead skin. Sugar also has anti-bacterial powers that can help heal dermatitis flare ups.
USE CALENDULA FLOWER
Calendula is a beauty buzzword you’ve likely seen many times. Calendula is a medicinal herb with anti-inflammatory and anti-viral powers. Calendula is infused into many creams and ointments because of it’s ability to calm histamine reactions, which are the cause of allergic reactions. Hempathy Therapy Cream contains a high amount of calendula, which contributes to it’s ability to soothe sensitive skin.
Sensitive skin can be highly reactionary. CBD hemp extract helps calm an inflammatory response and provides whole body relief.
