Must Haves for My Super Sensitive Skin

January 28, 2018

 

Hi Peeps!

 

I have an array of skin problems that I’ve been dealing with since I was a kid.  

 

& I've learned a few things over these last 25 years that I wanted to share with my fellow sensitive skin sufferers,

 

I have vitiligo, acute dermatitis, and seborrhea dermatitis, which is very sensitive skin, dry skin, and dry scalp.  

 

Essentially, I need lots of moisture, but i need it to be gentle.

 

My Must Have Products

 

Body Wash: Aveeno Daily Moisture Body Wash

 

 

 

Adventurous Body Wash: Dove Deep Moisture

Body Scrub: Aveeno Positively Nourishing Smoothing Pomegranate + Rice Body Scrub

 

Face Wash: Dr. Bronner Baby Unscented Pure Castile Soap   

Face Scrub: Clean and Clear Blackhead Eraser Facial Scrub

Acne Medicine: Differen Gel

Body and Face Lotion: Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Lotion Unscented

Laundry: All Free & Gentle

 

Skin Dos

 

- I ALWAYS wash my face at night with my Dr. Bronners

 

- In the morning I only rinse with hot water

 

- I only spray perfumes on my clothes & try to avoid my skin

 

- I only use my face scrub once a week

 

- For new products, do a hand test before you use it on your body

 

- On my sheets, face wash-clothes, and pillow cases I only wash them with hot water.

 

Anything that will touch my face I don’t use a detergent on 

 

Skin Don’ts

 

- When you are having a break out, whether cystic or regular, don’t use ANYTHING on your face.  

 

- Stay away from strong scented soaps, body washes, and lotions

 

-  I avoid Tide Free and Gentle, it has broken me out in the past

 

 - Do not use the Dr. Bronners buy itself. You must dilute it down. I use an 8oz foam  bottle and only use about ½ oz of castle soap, and fill the rest with water.
