Best oils for sen­si­tive skin

Canadian Living - - Skin Care -

“In peo­ple with sen­si­tive skin, some­thing has caused the bar­rier layer to be­come com­pro­mised and, there­fore, ir­ri­tated,” says An­der­son. Give your skin’s outer layer some ex­tra TLC and heal (or avoid) red­ness and in­flam­ma­tion by choos­ing prod­ucts with an oil like oat ker­nel, which helps com­bat sen­si­tiv­i­ties by re­duc­ing ir­ri­ta­tion. Other oils to con­sider in­clude sun­flower and tamanu for their wound-heal­ing prop­er­ties.
