Do you have Sensitive Skin?
A lot of people self-diagnose as having sensitive skin without knowing what it truly means. So who really has sensitive skin? While there is no official definition, a patient should not diagnose themselves as such unless they have ever suffered from eczema, rosacea, or another clinical skin condition by a dermatologist. For those who are now questioning their self-diagnosis, consider the times you break out- testing a new product, changing diet, and lacking sleep are all common causes of break outs for any type of skin. For those who have suffered from a skin condition at any stage of life, read on to hear a sensitive skin patient’s experience:
“While I was growing up, my mom always told me I had sensitive skin. She said when I was a baby I would break out in eczema patches which, according to her, were caused by having naturally dry skin and inheriting my dad’s allergies. Most of my life I haven’t had to think about my eczema, but that changed in my late teens and early twenties. After surviving puberty, my main focus was on clearing up my cystic acne. Once my skin cleared up, I started to want to experiment with makeup and started to watch all these instructional YouTube beauty videos. I inevitably went out and bought the drugstore products they were recommending, and had much different results than were advertised. After testing out one of the top selling drugstore mascaras, I broke out in dry, itchy eczema patches on the most tender part of my face- around my eyes. Over time I had similar experiences with some of the top selling eye creams, moisturizers, foundations, eyeliners, and spot treatments. It took me a while to realize it, but eventually I grew to understand that the health of my skin is far more valuable than saving money on makeup and skincare. After dropping small amounts of money on tons of different products that deteriorated my skin, I realized trying to find products based on packaging and bloggers was pointless. I found Nefertari.com and recognized the passion for skincare immediately after my consultation. Houria genuinely cared about the effectiveness of my skincare products, not about selling things to me. She sent me samples and then spent about an hour on the phone giving me explicit instructions on how to get the most out of each product. I got on a routine of using the Sothys Morning Cleanser to wash my face and, to be honest, fell in love with the smell before I even saw results. Later I added in the Sothys Comfort Lotion to tone after cleansing, and finished with the Soothing Melting Fluid to moisturize. The first thing I noticed, other than the wonderful smell of every product, was the change in the texture of my skin. It’s now more even to the touch and it’s easier to apply makeup. The biggest change I saw was the day after using the Sothys Desquacrem, which is like giving yourself a spa-quality exfoliating treatment. The better my skin gets, the more I love it, and the more I love it, the more I want to care for it. If you’re looking to take charge of your skincare routine, I cannot recommend Nefertari.com enough!”
