For those who consider themselves less than blessed because of their skin, there are many sensitive skin products out there that are designed specifically with your needs in mind. No matter how good someone's skin is, isn't it true that we all always find something to complain about? "Oh, well, you can't really see, but I've got all these blackheads on my chin." Sound familiar? Luckily, there are products out there for everyone.

There are plenty of name lines that carry sensitive skin products. Murad, Astara, Peter Thomas Roth, and others have full lines dedicated to sensitive skin--some even make all their products with natural ingredients that would be good for any skin type. The reason these potential face-healers are so good for thin skin is that they contain things like organic plant extracts, antioxidants and essential oils. They don't contain things like alcohol, chemicals or artificial scents.

Worry-Free with Sensitive Skin Products

Moisturizers are an essential for anyone with sensitive skin. Your moisturizer should contain SPF 15 or above, be oil-free and have no added scents or chemicals. It should be all natural. Since thin skin is so sensitive to the weather, particularly UV rays, it's necessary to have sun block in your moisturizer, or even add extra if you know you're going to be outside a lot.

Your sensitive skin products should also have antioxidants. Antioxidants fight free radicals which come from smoke, caffeine, UV rays, sugar and other harmful substances. Sensitive skin has a higher reaction rate to these things, so antioxidants can mean the difference between clear skin, and dry red skin.
