Most people will have a skin reaction to something in their life, but those with persistent issues are classified as having sensitive skin.
Sensitive skin can refer to anything from easily irritated skin to redness, dry and flaky skin, irritated and cracked skin and just allergies, and can affect anyone, no matter their age or skin type. It can be one of the most frustrating and tricky skin issues to deal with, and many people struggle to find products and solutions that work for their particular situation.
If you have sensitive skin, you’ll be happy to know there are several simple ways you can manage it. Keep reading for our tips and natural remedies to soothe and protect sensitive skin.
1. Read The Labels: Less Is More
Less is more when it comes to ingredients for sensitive skin. So if you haven’t already started reading the ingredients on your labels, now is the time to begin.
Many of today’s skincare products are laden with harsh chemicals and synthetic fragrances. Any product that comes in contact with your skin — whether it’s lotions, laundry detergent, or deodorant — should not contain ingredients that could leave your skin feeling dry and irritated. Instead, opt for skincare products made with all-natural ingredients and subtle, organic scents.
At Legend’s Creek Farm, our soaps, lotions, herbal salves, and body butter are made with only the highest quality ingredients, and organic scents such as lavender, vanilla, and pink grapefruit, as well as unscented options for those who are ultra-sensitive to fragrances. With a focus on healing properties and natural ingredients, we also avoid all toxic and damaging chemicals such as parabens, formaldehyde, phosphates, and alcohol.
2. Harness The Power Of Goat Milk Soap: Protect Your Skin
One of the best ways to protect and treat sensitive skin is by using all-natural goat milk soap, which helps with a number of sensitive skin issues.
Doctors themselves often recommend goat milk soap to people who suffer from these sensitive skin problems or even just a sunburn. That’s because goat milk soap contains lactic acid, which exfoliates and removes dead skin cells from the surface of the skin.
The pH balance of the fatty acids in goat milk is very similar to the levels in the human body, making it easier for your skin to absorb the minerals, vitamins, and fatty acids, without disrupting the natural pH balance. It’s also rich in selenium, which prevents skin damage and protects the skin from excess sun exposure.
3. Be Aware Of Your Cleaning Products: Protect Your Skin
What do cleaning products have to do with sensitive skin? A lot, actually. Your skin can absorb the toxic chemicals, either from touching them directly or from the air when you spray cleaning products on surfaces.
Be careful when handling strongly scented cleaning products, as these often contain chemicals that are especially abrasive to sensitive skin and cause a reaction. Always choose natural products whenever possible and take precautions while cleaning.
While harsh chemicals from cleaning products can irritate sensitive skin, sometimes simply washing your hands with soap can also cause a reaction. Be sure to purchase a pair of long rubber gloves to wear when washing, cleaning or handling cleaning agents.
One product you may want to keep handy in the kitchen is our liquid goat milk hand soap and body wash, perfect for a little TLC after washing dishes or cleaning. Made with simple, natural ingredients and packed with nourishing herbs, it’s specially formulated to calm irritated skin and provide soothing, moisturizing protection.
4. Herbal Salves Can Save The Day: Create A Barrier For Your Skin
Other natural remedies available for sensitive skin are herbal salves and balms, which make the perfect moisturizers and barriers. Salves and balms are thicker and more nourishing than regular lotions and creams, and they work well for cracked, dry and/or irritated skin. Many salves can also be used on lips and on dry or rough spots all over the body.
Our salves are made with nourishing oils, and the therapeutic herbs act as a barrier on the skin’s surface. They soothe, protect, and promote healthy skin.
While dealing with sensitive skin may be frustrating, there are many ways to soothe and protect your skin. Being aware of the products that you use and being selective about the ingredients you put on your skin is the first step.
