Hello all I am new to this forum and what a great forum this is so many helpful tips and ideas, i have suffered with dry irritable skin since I was young, I have tried so many different things, does anyone have any good suggestions?, I have very senisitive skin and quite often have reactions to various lotions and potions which as you can imagine is very frustrating

Hi Josey and welcome, I don't have sensitive skin except for my face, but my does, she uses al ot of the aveeno products have you tried them? Someone in an earlyier posting suggested Gold Bond as well. My self and my family including dear old Mom use Coconut oil. It's great and darn cheap too. There is no smell, all natural. A little dab goes a long way, it's great for itchy or dry skin. It's really good for the skin too. Ya might want to try it.

hello josey, like mony i was going to suggest aveeno products also. you can get them at most pharmacies or department stores. i use aveeno products myself. my daughter uses them since her second child was born. that was 10 years ago. it is a good brand and it helps calm dry itchy skin. good luch. and welcome to skin care talk.

You must switch to an organic skin care line. Most of the products on the market have chemical ingredients that dry out your skin and actually cause more harm. My life changed after I read the book "The Truth About Beauty" by Kat James. Everyone should read this book.

Hi Josey,

Welcome to the forum.

Try the 'Simple' range available at simple.co.uk. The cleanser is gentle and perfect for sensitive skin. The toner clarifies and refreshes and contains chamomile to soothe and witch hazel to tone.

The entire range is devoid of perfume, colour and contains no unnecessary additives.

To moisturise your skin - try wheatgerm oil, Vitamin E oil or Bio Oil.

Don't forget your sun-cream in the day.

Warm regards,

redrose

Since you are in the UK, I would highly recommend you to try the Simple skincare line which is specifically developed for sensitive skin. All their products are mild and fragrance- free. Avoid any kind of alcohol based toners as they are very drying. Most importantly you need to wear a good sunblock everyday and use a good moisturiser suitable for dry skin.
