Sensitive skin treatment requires the gentlest of care because we don’t want to irritate our skin.
In fact, that should be the first law of caring for sensitive skin.
If any treatment causes the skin:
- Become dry
- Or triggers an allergic reaction
Then it should be stopped immediately.
With that in mind, try the treatments outlined below.
5 Steps for Treating Sensitive Skin with Products
Hypoallergenic products are specialized in treating sensitive skin. These types of products do not contain common irritants
Here’s how we use them:
1. Use a hypoallergenic eye makeup that will soothe your skin. But ensure that you remove it properly. Pour some of the eye makeup removers on a cotton ball and take off the mascara. Then remove excess makeup with clean cotton wool.
2. Avoid using facial washes as well as soap. These will tend to extract the oil and moisture from your skin. Thereby causing it to be more sensitive.
3. Even using mild skin fresheners can expose the skin to the elements. That can injure it. Instead, splash your face with some warm water. This removes the excess cleansers along with eye makeup remover from your skin.
4. Pat your face gently with a soft towel. Don’t rub. Rubbing irritates the skin.
5. Dryness makes sensitive skin worse. Thus use non-scented facial moisturizers. This help to decrease the dryness and also strengthen and smoothening the skin.

In a nonmetallic bowl, chop, grate or mash the fruits and vegetables to a pulp.
Strain off excess juices, which can be used for a health drink.
