Did You Know?:
Sensitive skin is really more of a sub-category of each of the 4 main skin types (normal, dry, oily & combination). Skin can become sensitive regardless of skin type and mostly occurs as a reaction to certain skin care products.
If your skin is sensitive, it will react very fast to chemicals. Treating this “hyper active” skin requires awareness, gentle cleansing agents, regular sun protection and minimizing over-exfoliation. This skin type also needs more frequent use of super hydrating serums and gels, followed by nourishing lipids that help retain the moisture and restore balance.
Ellen's Tips for Sensitive Skin
Sensitive skin can either start when you are young or as the skin ages. Certain skin sensitivities are chronic (ongoing) and require a lifetime of care. As we age, the skin becomes thinner, bruises easier, and, is more sensitive to environmental assaults including the sun, pollution, medications and hormones.
If you are Sensitive/Dry, add it is even more critical to add the Redness Relief Serum before applying moisturizer. If you are Sensitive/Oily, incorporate the Sensitive Skin Enzyme Mask several times per week to gentle add clay and digestive enzymes to help reduce the oil, without over stimulating the skin.
