1 Simple Change that Cured my Sensitive, Reactive Skin!

For as long as I can remember my skin has been very reactive, overly sensitive and sometimes even painful!
My face has often felt like this….

Leaving me feeling about as attractive as this

If you read THIS POST you will see some of the tricks I have tried in the past.

{I daren’t think about how much money I’ve spent on lotions and creams over the years.}

However, today I am delighted to tell you that my face is no longer reactive or sensitive.
It feels soft, smooth and supple.

And the best part?
It cost me nothing!

All I had to do was make one change to my routine!

One Change

The ONE change I made was stopping using Clinique dramatically different moisturiser.
Which was very hard because I honestly thought it was the only moisturiser I could use.

It was the only moisturiser that didn’t make my skin react, which seemed okay at the time, but it meant I couldn’t wear any other brand.
Which also meant sunscreen was impossible.

Sunscreen would make my face turn purple… I kid you not!
I used to think the Clinique was the magic lotion that was kind to my skin.
I thought it was the ‘good guy’ in a world full of ‘baddies’.

Turns out I was wrong!

After accidentally forgetting to re-order my Clinique lotion (I used to get it online) I was forced into buying an alternative.
I thought I would try a simple lotion with no additives, but it still nipped my skin.

However, after a few days, it nipped less.
After a couple of weeks, it didn’t nip at all.

I was intrigued because years ago a beautician told me that Clinique sensitised the skin.
She told me that regular use stopped the skin being able to tolerate other brands.

I cynically thought she was just trying to sell me her own products.
Turns out that (for me) she was right.

After a few months of clinique cold-turkey I have been able to use other brands and different products.
Even sunscreen!

Cleansers, lotions and oils have become a pleasure.
This small change has made a huge difference!

{Disclaimer: This is my personal experience and it may not work for you… but if you’re suffering, it’s worth a try!}

Do you have sensitive skin?
What brands do you use?

I would love to hear your thoughts and opinions on this topic!
