Hello & Happy Friday-
Today I wanted to share with y’all a secret of mine and how I cope with it. Why? Because I know I’m not the only one out there with this problem…though at times it feels as if I am. About 10 years ago, while I was in high school, I started developing extremely sensitive skin. I eventually was diagnosed with a condition described simply as an over-production of histamine (you now that awful stuff in your body that goes nuts during allergy season). The symptoms can be quite awful and they seem to be excited by water: feeling of fire ants on my arms and legs after a shower, jumping in a lake, or when they put the steamed towel on my legs at the end of a pedicure. I also have extremely sensitive scalp and face. Because of all these reasons, I have to be very cautious and educated when picking out my skincare products. Today I thought I’d share them with all of you, in case you experience similar concerns.
- For the Face: Dermalogica Normal/Oily Kit
- For the Scalp: Aveda Damage Remedy Shampoo & Conditioner
- For the Shower: Aveeno Baby Cleansing Therapy Moisturizing Wash
- For the Legs: EOS Shave Cream in Vanilla Bliss
- For the Body: Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Dry Oil Mist
Whether you have sensitive skin or not, I highly recommend these products (they are all on my repurchase list). If you have specific questions about them please comment below and let me know of others you feel I should try. I am always trying to find products to relieve my symptoms!
