Skin Care For Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin care is more than choosing the right product.  Sensitive skin has a low tolerance level to certain products or environmental conditions. People with sensitive skin may react quickly to chemicals, heat or wind by developing red, blotchy and irritated skin.
Acne Vulgaris is a common human skin disease, characterized by areas of skin with seborrhea (scaly red skin), comedom (blackhead and whitehead), papules (pinheads), pustules (pimples), nodules (large papules) and possibly scarring.

Back in last few months, I was facing this problem, the most serious ever in my life. The irritation on my face was never better though I tried a lot of products to get rid of the huge and solid pimples. Besides feeling uncomfortable and embarrassing, it can be annoying having to avoid everything that may cause sensitive skin, such as, cosmetics. Providing the right sensitive skin care product can be particularly difficult because not every product works effectively on me. So I had to keep on looking for the most suitable product.

I tried many different products from retail outlets, and some, recommended by beautician. Recently, I just realized a range of organic skin care and gentle facial cleanser which improve the condition of my face tremendously.

 Before & After
