Your skin is the largest organ on your body, so it's important to take care of it. And if you have sensitive skin like yours truly, it's even more important that you love the skin you're in. But you don't have to spend a fortune on fancy products. There are several inexpensive drugstore products for sensitive skin that you can use if you're on a budget. Here are 7 that I recommend.
I use this facial moisturizer in the morning and at night. It contains aloe and chamomile and is fragrance-free. It isn't too oily and it keeps skin from drying out. The only downside? It doesn't have SPF in it. However, SPF products are often greasy, so if you feel that SPF protection is necessary, I would use a separate product.
If you're out in the sun frequently, this SPF moisturizer might be a good choice for you. It is oil-free, fragrance-free and PABA-free, so it will keep your skin protected from the sun while also giving it the non-greasy moisture that it needs. I wouldn't suggest using this at night, because of the SPF, but it's great for your days in the sun.
This fragrance-free body lotion is great for all over moisturizing. It isn't greasy, and it says right on the bottle that it is "clinically proven to heal very dry skin in 5 days." You can find it at your local drugstore for less than $5.
When you have sensitive skin, you actually don't want to use soap. You'll still get clean, and your skin will thank you for being gentle with it. This soap-free body wash is also dye-free and unscented, so your skin won't get any harsh treatment when you use it.
Doesn't "beauty bar" sound so much better than "soap"? You'll get fresh and clean when you use this fragrance-free, hypoallergenic bar. Dove is a brand that is known for its gentle products, and this beauty bar will keep your sensitive skin healthy.
Another great sensitive skin product from Dove is this body wash. It's super gentle on your skin but still cleans like any other body wash. A word of caution on this one: it appears to contain fragrance, so depending on how sensitive your skin is, this product might not be right for you.
As girls who love our makeup, we have to remember that taking it off can affect our skin too. So I suggest using these gentle makeup removing wipes. You need to take care of the skin around your eyes just as much as the rest of your body.
Having sensitive skin can make you more prone to sunburn, skin cancer and other skin ailments. But if you take care of your skin, you won't need to worry as much about the risks of skin conditions. What products are you using to keep your skin happy and healthy?
