Avoid perfumed products as these can irritate sensitive skin. Instead, when caring for sensitive skin it’s best to opt for natural skincare products made from plants without chemical ingredients – these may also come from smaller operators who understand every ingredient that goes into their all-natural formulations and don’t harm animals or the environment in producing their products.
4. Coconut Oil & Sugar Body Scrub
Sugar is an easily accessible ingredient used for exfoliation while coconut oil nourishes and softens skin, leaving a soft, velvety surface behind. Sugar scrub can be applied daily but should only be applied to body areas to avoid breakouts and blocked pores on facial skin.
These recipes will have you excited to experiment with DIY beauty treatments ranging from nourishing facial masks and invigorating hair treatments, healing scrubs and moisturizing hand creams – but be wary; natural doesn’t necessarily equal organic or healthy! Always read labels thoroughly when selecting natural or “organic” products to use.
