Sensitive skin is common and can result in a variety of skin conditions.  The main four types of sensitive skin that are recognized by the American Academy of Dermatology, include:
  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Stinging and burning skin
  • Allergies (dermatitis)
Even within these four categories of sensitive skin, there are variations.  Store shelves are full of generic sensitive skin care products.  Unless you find the right skin care products for your sensitive skin, you may find trial and error leads to more irritation and frustration.
Gentle Cleanser
Cleure Gentle Cleanser

Step 1
The best skin care routine should start with cleansing to clean the skin of debris and dirt gently without drying the skin of natural essential oils.   No matter which category of sensitive skin you are in, stay away from cleansers or soaps with sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS).  This harsh detergent is irritating and can cause allergies.  It's added to soaps, shampoos and toothpaste for foaming.  Clean your skin two times a day with a gentle non-SLS cleanser or facial bar. 

Step 2To remove dead cells and allow new healthy cells to surface, use a facial exfoliating scrub about once or twice a week.  Once you find a gentle non-irritating scrub, continue to use it, and discontinue any that cause irritation.

Step 3
A facial mask with kaolin clay and dead sea mud is a wonderful product to add vital nutrients to sensitive skin.

Step 4
Always moisturize your skin, even if you have oily acne skin.  However, it's important to use a non-clogging and non-irritating moisturizer for your skin type.  For example, acne skin would do better with a oil-free facial lotion.  According to the National Eczema Association, it's important to moisturize within three minutes of cleansing.  Moisturizing is important because it helps protect and to keep water from evaporating from your skin.  Keeping your skin hydrated is vital to healthy skin.  Even for oily skin, before applying makeup, always moisturize.

Natural Sunscreen
Cleure Natural Sunscreen

Step 5
Natural sunscreen with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are the safest and most effective broad spectrum sun protection.  Always apply sunscreen when exposed to the sun, during summer and winter.  The times when your skin is most apt to damage from ultraviolet rays is between 10 AM to 3 PM.  

Cleure has a complete line of non-irritating sensitive skin, personal care and cosmetics products.  All products are made in the USA and are fragrance, gluten and paraben free, and ecologically responsible.
