Mostly the dry skin types are sensitive in nature, as they tend to react to anything, which doesn't provide the skin with moisture. They are mostly sensitive to astringent as it may result in redness. From among homemade facial scrubs, avoid using homemade astringents, as they are mostly made from citrus, an element for which your skin has some allergy. Try to avoid homemade products having lemon, watermelon, strawberry and cucumber contents. Within the range of manufactured products, avoid using products containing potential allergens like fragrance or PABA sunscreens and try to use sunscreen lotions or creams. Use mild baby soap to wash your face and make sure to rinse thoroughly as it may other wise lead to your hated skin irritation.
Make sure to apply perfume or new makeup accessories first on your wrist and then on your skin to make sure it won't cause irritation on your skin. Researches show that there are very few such makeup accessories, which are skin friendly and which do not cause irritation to sensitive skin. It's highly essential to use a proper homemade moisturizer or cream before going to bed, as it will nourish your skin and also enhance the oil content in your skin which is very essential for having a healthy skin. The aromatherapy oils and lavender essential oils and rose water etc are the safe sources to take care of your skin without harming it.
