7 Of Best Skincare Products To Use If You Have Sensitive Skin

The struggle is real, but it doesn't have to be.

7 Of Best Skincare Products To Use If You Have Sensitive Skin

Finding the right skincare products for you can be challenging. It's especially challenging if you have sensitive skin and everything under the sun (including the sun) either makes you break out or your skin all blotchy and red.

It's been such a challenge for me to find the right products for my skin over the past six months or so because everything seems to irritate it. However, after a lot of trial and error, I've finally nailed down the best products to use for my skin. Check out the video down below to see what products work the best for sensitive skin that's prone to dryness.

1. Neutrogena Blackhead Eliminating Scrub

This exfoliator is super gentle for sensitive skin, but it also is great for removing all the makeup and dirt from your pores. I also like that it doesn't make my skin burn like some facial scrubs do.

2. Dr. Brandt Pore Dermabrasion Pore Perfecting Exfoliator

This exfoliator is no longer in my daily routine, but I still recommend it to anyone who has more money than I do. I originally got this from a Boxycharm, so I can't afford to repurchase it for $58, but if I had $58 lying around for an exfoliator, I would buy this. It does an excellent job of clearing out your pores, but it's still very gentle.

3. JMSolution Water Luminous Jelly Cleanser

skincare product! It is so gentle on sensitive skin and the texture of the cleanser feels incredible. It is amazing at getting off makeup-- even waterproof mascara. I recommend you use this in the shower though because it can be hard to get the sticky residue off with just a washcloth. It's by far my favorite product though.

4. Neutrogena Alcohol-Free Toner

Before I tried this toner, I thought toner was just supposed to make your skin burn. Spoiler alert: it shouldn't. This toner doesn't make my skin burn at all and it leaves my skin feeling fresh and hydrated since it doesn't have any alcohol in it to strip your skin of its natural moisture. Toner is important because it balances out the pH levels of your skin and reduces blotchiness and redness (which is oh so important for us sensitive skin folks).

5. Neutrogena Ultra-Gentle Facial Moisturizer

If you have sensitive skin, the chances are, fragrances irritate it a ton. This moisturizer is great because it doesn't have any scent. It's hypo-allergenic as well, which is also a plus for anyone with sensitive skin. This is the best moisturizer that I've tried... and I've tried a lot.

6. Erythromycin Gel

OK, this is actually something you need a prescription for. If you're like me and spot treatments are way too harsh for your skin, this is the best thing to stop breakouts in their tracks. If your skin can't handle spot treatments, talk to your dermatologist or doctor about this possibility.

7. Equate Beauty Exfoliating Wet Towelettes

Much like toner, I thought face wipes would always burn my skin and eyes. Even towelettes that claimed to be for sensitive skin made my skin irritated. However, these extremely affordable exfoliating wipes from Walmart are super gentle and make my skin feel fresh without burning the skin around my eyes.

It's a struggle to have sensitive skin. A lot of products are just too harsh for my skin, but these are my tried and true products that I would recommend to anyone that has a problem finding skincare products that are sensitive skin friendly.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
