sensitive skin and how to help it

In the realm of skincare, sensitive skin stands as a unique challenge. It’s not just a fleeting concern; it’s a persistent condition that requires careful attention and specialized care. For those who struggle with sensitive skin, navigating the infinite  number of skincare products and routines can feel like tiptoeing through a minefield, never quite sure what might trigger a reaction. 

I myself have sensitive skin, mostly characterized by acne and rashes such as eczema. When I was younger, and long before I thought about how junk got into my body, I tried every drug store soap imaginable that I could afford. None of them actually helped my skin, in fact most purchases made my skin worse. It wasn't until years later when my journey for all things natural and soap making took a turn in a wonderful new direction and my skin became less reactive, which helped me narrow down the 'not worthy' ingredients to never use again!

Sensitivities can be different for everyone who suffers; it’s a spectrum of reactions that skin can have to various environmental, chemical, or internal factors. Common symptoms include redness, itching, dryness, and a tendency to react adversely to skincare products, weather changes, or even stress.

Over the years I have come to understand my skin and what makes it 'angry', your skin deserves the same. Understanding what causes sensitive skin is key to managing it effectively. Genetics play a significant role, as some people are simply predisposed to having more sensitive skin. Environmental factors such as pollution, harsh weather conditions, and UV exposure can worsen sensitivity. Additionally, certain ingredients commonly found in skincare products, such as fragrances, preservatives, and harsh detergents, can trigger reactions in sensitive skin. All of Fosters Fields recipes are formulated with skin safe fragrances and essential oils and other products that I feel are safe for sensitive skin. 

Sensitive skin may present challenges, but with the right approach, it’s possible to manage and care for it effectively. By understanding the causes of your sensitivity, adopting a gentle skincare routine, and making lifestyle adjustments as needed, individuals with sensitive skin can enjoy healthy, radiant skin without constant irritation and discomfort.
