Got to chat with Refinery29 about some of my favorite foundations for sensitive skin.
As a makeup artist and natural beauty expert with a holistic skin healing practice, one of my favorite subjects to discuss is how to help, heal, and work with ✨sensitive skin✨ For those of you out there who identify with skin that is more sensitive, I invite you to open up the way you are thinking about it. Instead of thinking there is something wrong with you or you are TOO sensitive, consider maybe that the product is filled with ingredients that aren’t healthy for your skin (possibly filled with irritants or heavy metals) or that you are having a reaction to something else, perhaps a food allergy or a reaction to your shampoo or face lotion. The new way we need to think about sensitive skin is that your skin is communicating and asking you to listen, to make a change and use this as an opportunity to find something new that works better. We need to become detectives for our skin and realize that since our skin is our largest organ, we need to find the healthiest products as well as realize that some of the reactions might just not be as topical as we think they are.
