Sensitive Skin Natural Care
SENSITIVE SKIN CONDITION
Sensitive skin can be dry, combination, or oily. Since 1981 in the U.S. we have treated in our skin care salon and have formulated and made skin care products for sensitive skin that is dry, combination or oily. All our skin care products are for sensitive skin. Because we believe no skin care product should be harsh or irritating for any skin type, be it oily, combination, dry or sensitive. Skin care means to take care of the skin, to protect the skin not to be harsh and irritate the skin. Our skin care products repair and nourish the skin.
Basic two step Sensitive Skin Care regimen:

Many today have sensitive skin. I am in this business since 1981 and I never seen so many sensitive, irritated skin conditions as I have seen in the last few years. Every new client that comes for the first time for treatment or for consultation has sensitive irritated skin condition. Most cases are from the use of cosmetics. Many cosmetics contain ingredients that irritate the skin as: AHA [alpha hydroxy acids- the most known is glycolic acid], BHA [beta hydroxy], Vit.C, Salicylic Acid, Lactic Acid, Esencial Oils, Perfumes, Propylene Glycol, Butylene Glycol ( derivative of petroleum), Chemical Sunscreens, Chemical Emulsifiers based on ammonia as: TEA [triethanolamine]and DEA [diethanolamine] and many others.
All these ingredients cause sensitivity on the skin especially on a very sensitive skin, rosacea or eczema condition.
These ingredients and many other cosmetic ingredients will irritate a sensitive skin.
Sensitive skin can be dry, combination or oily. We have skin care products that are specific
for sensitive skin that is dry, combination or oily. Our skin care products are healing and nourish the skin. All our skin care products are for sensitive skin.
Many think that just one cream will be enough for Sensitive skin care, it is not.
The proper Sensitive skin care products have ingredients that do not exasperate the condition. From cleansers, moisturizers to make-up and sunscreens. One wrong ingredient in a product can ruin your Sensitive skin care regimen.
Sensitive skin care products should be soothing and moisturizing without clogging the pores with rich creams.
Skin Care Products for Sensitive Skin
Sensitive skin condition has very delicate skin and it has to be treated with extra care. It is very important to use gentle movements on the skin, no energetic movements or forceful rubbing of the skin because it causes redness and more sensitivity.
For sensitive, irritated skin it is important to use soothing cleansers to cool off the irritation. Do not use cleansers that contain detergents or soap ingredients, foamy cleansers or soap because it dehydrates and irritates the skin.
Apple Milk Cleanser and Toner for Sensitive Skin a light liquid cleanser made with Apple Juice and Milk. For a quick cleanser use it in the morning, evening or during the day. Apply on piece of cotton (natural cotton not synthetic) and cleanse all over the face. It is an extremely gentle cleanser with no alcohol or irritant ingredients or foamy ingredients as: soap or detergents.
Redness Irritation Cleanser Exfoliater Support or PCA-Na Oat Protein Cleanser Exfoliater Dry Skin made with soothing ingredients that cleanses, moisturizes and exfoliates gently the skin as: Pca-Na Natural Moisturizing Factor, Oat Protein, Non Fat Milk, and Magnesium Carbonate.
It is important to remove the dead cells very gently while you are cleansing. After cleansing the skin feels smooth and clean.
Directions: Apply all over the face, massage gentle a little bit or longer until gets dryer and then wash it off. It is better to massage longer to remove the dead cells on the surface. Very gently, afterwards, splash water (at room temperature) on the face and when the cleanser-exfoliater softens gently remove it by massaging with your fingertips and splash more water. Cleanse two times a day or just once if you don’t have the time. You will see that the sensitivity and redness will improve right after the cleansing. This cleanser will remove make-up as well.
For Men: use a shaving cream or soap that does not heat-up or contain essential oils.
After shaving, use the cleanser-exfoliater to remove the soap or detergent residue left on the skin and to deep cleanse the pores. You may also try the Wild honey Body & Hand Soap for shaving.
