Caring For Sensitive Or Ageing Skin…
Do you struggle with itching, redness, dryness, fine lines, and other problems that come from sensitive, ageing skin? The shocking fact is that your skin problems could actually be CAUSED by what you’re using to fix the problem!
The toxic ingredients in many anti-ageing and sensitive skin products are often the culprits.
If skin care products were labelled “ineffective, petroleum-derived, chemical ridden goodness inside,” would you still buy them? I don’t think so.
Do you ever find yourself making a choice between affordable products packed with questionable chemical ingredients and expensive, pure products that are safe and effective?
You aren’t alone, especially if you’ve struggled with topical sensitivities or the onset of fine lines and wrinkles.
Sensitive skin can come from a lifetime of harsh cosmetics or environmental stressors, like pollution or excessive sun exposure.
That’s why I want to share with you how important it is to always be careful about the ingredients in your products.
The first step in giving your skin the proper nourishment and love it needs is switching to organically grown (or wild!), non-GMO ingredients.
The skin is the largest organ of our bodies, and it absorbs the products we apply like a sponge, So if you’re using products full of synthetic ingredients and chemicals, they are all being absorbed into your body and into your blood stream.
Using clean products can reduce the sensitivity and irritation that comes hand in hand with synthetically derived ingredients.
The amazing thing about ingredients from nature is that aside from being a safe alternative to chemicals, they are highly effective! Natural products are essentially filled with active ingredients, whereas synthetic products are only about 5-10% active ingredients.
My 4 Natural ingredients for sensitive, ageing skin (That Actually Work!)
1) Aloe Vera
It contains over 75 active ingredients including amino acids, vitamins, minerals and enzymes. It leaves the skin supple, smooth and nourished.
2) Coconut Oil
Is incredible for restoring dehydrated, dry, flaky and sensitive skin. It’s one of the richest natural sources of Vitamin E and antioxidants on the planet. Not only is it moisturising, but it contains vitamins that help cleanse skin, unclog pores and calm sensitivity.
This member of the daisy family contains flavonoids and carotenoids, which have a gentle and soothing effect on the skin. It can alleviate the appearance of temporary redness and is packed with antioxidants that protect them from environmental stressors.
4) Rose Distilate
It even sounds soothing doesn’t it? This delicate ingredient can calm and gently tone skin. It’s ideal for skin sensitivities and easing the look of temporary redness.
