Hands Up Who Has Sensitive Skin?

by Lisa Lyford
Hands Up Who Has Sensitive Skin?

At least 50% of people describe their skin as being sensitive*, and this figure is growing! Why? There are many reasons including genetics, diet (lack of essential fatty acids), environment, hormonal fluctuations, smoking, alcohol, medication, compromised immune system or the use of irritant skincare products or ingredients, or other products in contact with the skin, i.e. washing detergents etc.


If you have sensitive skin, you'll love Living Nature’s NEW Sensitive Skin range - cleanser, hydrating toner, day and night moisturiser. Although all Living Nature products are safe and have an extremely low reaction rate, most contain a natural fragrance, which can cause irritation to sufferers of chronic skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, allergies or extreme sensitivities.


Living Nature Sensitive Skin range includes three hero ingredients for their skin calming and restorative properties - Harakeke Flax Extract, Organic Virgin Coconut Oil and Avocado Oil.


  • Certified 100% natural by BDIH Germany
  • Clinically proven to be non-irritating
  • Dermalogically tested
  • Hypoallergenic
  • No added fragrance or allergens
  • Gluten free
  • Definitely not tested on animals
  • Made locally.


I’ve been using the products and love them. They’re soft and gentle on my skin.



Looking After Your Skin


Whilst skincare will assist with the management of sensitive skin, especially moisturising, you also need to consider:

  • Eating lots of nutrient rich vegetables, especially green, chlorophyll-rich, leafy vegetables (for acne sufferers) and Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids.

  • Manage your stress. Stress can make your skin more sensitive as your immune system is compromised.

  • Treat your skin with love and care. Be gentle - cleanse gently, pat it dry (no harsh rubbing and stretching), nourish and protect it daily.



Check First

As with any new product, it’s really important to do a small patch test on your skin before applying product all over, just in case.



Fragrance Free Mascara


And if your eyes are sensitive to mascara, you’ll love Living Nature’s NEW Fragrance Free Thickening Mascara. No more stinging, red, watery or puffy eyes.



Made Locally


I recently visited Living Nature's factory in Kerikeri and witnessed the new Sensitive Skin range being packaged for the first time.
