I don’t mean those of you that get a rash every 5 years…when I say sensitive, I’m talking SENSITIVE! The type that flares up when you look at it with a raised brow-
I’m speaking to my fellow sufferers of Eczema, Psoriasis and Rosacea.
For those who suffer with highly irritable skin, they’ll know their skin (like most woman), is unpredictable & moody. Like a ‘strong-headed’ female, it can switch
from calm and serene to angry & red within a few hours. These attacks can be brought on by a variety of factors such as perfumes, colourants, climate change, food
& drink or our good old friend, stress!
Oddly, the first thing I will advise you on is to not stress. With the masses of products at our disposal, there is something to help everyone-. The key is finding products that
simultaneously calm the skin while building up its tolerance. The second key (a little more difficult), is to not scratch or irritate the skin with
vigorous rubbing. Once you know which products work for you, it’s simple to recognise the symptoms and act immediately. Over the years, I have built up an emergency
kit which I turn to whenever my Eczema flares up. I also have everyday products which I can recommend for sensitive skin.
