How Do You Care For Sensitive Skin

Botáni sets its sights on saving your sensitive skin!

I guess you could say I’m an emotional person. I use my hands to talk, I wear my heart on my sleeve and I go goo-goo gaa-gaa at the mere site of a gorgeous newborn. Turns out that I am not the only one who is emotional however … so is my skin.

“Emotional?” you may be thinking. “Skin can’t feel emotions!” I hear you exclaim. Well if you think I react to external stimuli dramatically, you should get to know my skin.

If it’s cold outside, my skin reacts by drying out. If I get just a sniff of synthetic perfume, it reacts with a ridiculous rash. If I If I was to get stung by a beautiful butterfly, hypothetically, chances are my skin would peel and welt! My skin doesn’t cry like a baby like I do when watching a romantic comedy, but let’s just say my skin is somewhat sensitive.

I’m not alone through. With the stressors of modern living, environmental harshness and changes in our climate, skin sensitivities are becoming a growing concern for many people. Conditions like Eczema and Psoriasis are on the rise and sensitive skin conditions like Rosacea and Dermatitis are becoming increasingly more common.
