If you have sensitive skin, you’ve probably tried many things to help alleviate the discomfort. However, if the things you’ve been trying have been harsh chemicals, you may have noticed that they often make the problem worse. When you have sensitive skin, you need to find a natural solution, such as an essential oil therapy.
When using essential oils in your skin therapy routine, it’s important to know which ones will actually be effective for you. Sometimes you may have to try a few before you find one that meets your needs – and sometimes you may want to mix the oils to combine their effects. While some oils have been specifically formulated for direct use on skin, others must be mixed into another product (such as an unscented lotion or an alcohol-free toner). You should be mixing about 10 drops of oil into about 1 oz of your base product. This can be all one type of oil, or a combination of a few – essential oil therapy is highly customizable for your individual needs and preferences.
For those who are trying to prevent sensitive skin issues from popping up in the first place, marjoram and rose oils have both been known to help treat sensitive skin without a specific irritation in place. It’s important that you don’t limit yourself to just one possibility – not every oil will have the same effect on every person, and you may need to try a few before you find one that works best with your skin type.
Congratulations on taking the first step towards healthier, less sensitive skin – naturally!
