Sensitive skin can be challenging to treat without provoking irritating side effects, like redness, rashes, breakouts, and other more severe allergic reactions. Sensitive skin is just as susceptible, if not more, to skin issues that require treatment. Organic, natural anti-aging skin care methods are widely popular among individuals with sensitive skin, as they cut the reaction risk down significantly. There are some anti-aging herbs that can be grown right in your own backyard that are especially useful for treating sensitive skin issues.
These anti-aging herbs—either boiled or as oil—can provide excellent benefits to sensitive skin, while respecting the skin’s natural temperament. They all share a few significant qualities: they calm, heal, and renew. Still, when you introduce a new product or ingredient to sensitive skin, it’s best to do a patch test on the inner wrist to ensure that you don’t have any reactions. Wait 48 hours after the test patch before using these herbs all over your body to treat your sensitive skin.
