Sensitive skin doesn’t respond to the same skin care regimen as everyone else, does it? Many of the products on the market today that are marked as hypoallergenic aren’t safe for sensitive skin because of some of the ingredients they contain and a lot of the mainstream regimens aren’t good for sensitive skin either. What can you do to clear up your skin if your skin is sensitive? Thankfully, there are steps you can take to clear up your skin naturally without spending a lot of money or time doing so.
Five Steps to Clear Your Skin
1) Hydrate Your Skin – Drink Water
It seems like such a simple thing to do, but this is a key step that many people overlook when they are looking for answers to achieving clear skin. Anyone who desires clear, healthy, and glowing skin needs to drink at least 8 to 9 eight-ounce glasses of water per day to get the benefits of hydrated and beautiful skin.
