Sensitive skin is something that we often talk about as it is surprisingly common and over half of us suffer with it at some point. For some of us it can be a minor concern and for others it can be serious and effect our daily lives. At Nakin all of our product collection is made up of skincare for sensitive skin as we use gorgeous natural ingredients that are kind to all skin types. Sensitive skin tends to be an issue that we experience more as the years go by, but it can happen at any age. It tends to happen when our skin barrier is impaired and also arises if we have certain skin conditions or use sensitising products. The main causes of sensitive skin are below.
- Using synthetic skincare products that contain harsh anti-ageing ingredients such as retinol, ascorbic acid and salicylic acid as these can all lead to skin irritation.
- Using cosmetic products that contain artificial fragrance as this is well known to cause sensitivity.
- Skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, rosacea and acne.
- Dry dehydrated skin, which often gets worse in cold weather. This can sometimes cause our skin to be itchy and scratching skin then weakens it further.
These causes of sensitive skin compromise the dermis and one of the best ways to combat it is to use an amazing 100% natural face treatment for sensitive skin. At Nakin we formulated our award-winning Revitalising Face Oil to be just that. It is developed for all skin types as the ingredients are neither oily nor drying, but as it contains 100% natural plant goodness many find that it is a saviour for their sensitive skin. Even the subtle fragrance is 100% natural, so there is no risk of causing sensitivity from synthetic fragrance. It is just pure natural goodness with the properties below.
- It contains the oil extracted from peach kernels which is one of the best plant oils for the face and neck. The amount of skin loving omegas make this an incredibly anti-ageing face oil.
- To substantially improve the skin barrier, it contains a bio form of olive oil as a special lipid, with skin enhancing molecules that also hydrate. This helps with skin elasticity and give skin a silky soft feel. Ingredients like this make Nakin’s natural face oil stand out as being so high performing.
- The other plant oils in this stunning formula include skin boosting argan, baobab and jojoba. They are all beautiful for sensitive skin and the jojoba needs a special mention for many reasons. It is remarkably similar to our own natural sebum and so is easily accepted by skin. It is also filled with nutrients and works like a liquid wax to provide invisible protection to the face and neck, which is important for sensitive skin.
The rest of Nakin’s range is also suitable for sensitive skin and most products contain hyaluronic acid, which is a hero ingredient for sensitivity. It occurs in our skin naturally but can be topically applied using our face products. It is one of the best moisturising ingredients available and is unlikely to ever cause skin sensitivity. We say unlikely as everyone’s skin is so unique and we can be allergic to even the kindest natural ingredient. Hyaluronic acid is just one of the amazing natural ingredients that we use at Nakin.
