Sensitive skin is a slave to the seasons – in the winter, it becomes reddish and dry, and in the summer burnt and prone to heat rashes. In between seasons, sensitive skin can react in ways that are unpredictable. As we venture into the warmer-weather months, take stock of how your skin is reacting and consider these 5 products to help you keep your sensitive skin smooth, glowing and acne-free.
There are so many factors that go into perfect skin – genetic predilection, diet, exercise, hormone balance and choice of topical treatments. Sensitive skin seems to react more dramatically than regular skin and is thus a huge issue among those with it. Putting the best face forward is a far more complicated concept. Luckily, there are all-natural, fuss-free products that keep sensitive skin radiant, all-year round.
1. Pure Natural Diva’s TIMELESS Organic Facial Lotion
With 12 percent zinc oxide, Pure Natural Diva’s TIMELESS facial lotion is a lightweight, nutrient-dense moisturizer fit for protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful rays as the sun begins to peak out from behind the clouds. Regular sun-protective facial products are packed with chemical filters like oxybenzone, avobenzone, octislate, octocrylene, homosalate and octinoxate. Zinc oxide is a mineral alternative. The lotion is also infused with organic aloe, organic green tea, witch hazel, vitamin E, rosemary and olive oil. Price: $45 for 2 oz.

The hydrating power of the Liquid Vitamin Hydra-Mist calms the skin and reveals a dewy, healthy glow. The mist is like a cool breeze to the face and helps to revitalize and otherwise dull, spotty complexion.
