3 Must-Have Skincare Products for the Family and Those with Sensitive Skin

Christmas is nearly here and I bet you’re looking to put together some fabulous gift baskets! Well, you can’t go too wrong with skincare! In fact, you might even know a few people who are having a tough time due to the cold Winter! It can be miserable for those who have uncomfortable dry skin to itchy, cracking irritation. You might be on the internet with your head spinning from the amount of options that are available!

Skin irritation is awful and can easily ruin anyone’s day. Sometimes people with this discomfort will try several products, not really knowing what to do. The number of options on the internet is overwhelming and you never really know if any of it will work.

Well, look no more! We’ve got a great list of options for you and your friend with sensitive skin. Take a look at the 3 options you must never go without, especially if you’ve got kids. You never know when you need something gentle that creates a fast healing effect, moisture rich for very dry skin, or a natural preventative for stretch marks and aging skin.

Heal Fast and Gently

I cannot say enough about the thaumaturgic bio mist! In fact, it’s so fantastic that my entire family, including my parents, my brothers, my cousins and aunts, all carry it with them everywhere! My son gets any type of scratch or bump or whatever and his instant solution is, “mommy, I need the bio mist please!”

The bio mist takes care of any unusual rashes, cuts, infections … you name it and it pretty much handles the job. I use it most often on my ears. I usually use nickel free, silver or gold earrings, but somehow I still manage to get that little bit of irritation on the hole part. Sometimes it’s because I’m in a rush to put my earrings on and I accidentally poke around the wrong area. And it’s not at all comfortable!

If you’re a parent, you definitely don’t want to take your chances with just any product. You want to make sure it’s gentle on your kids’ skin as well as natural, to avoid all any future mishaps.

Kids also tend to scream when anything else touches their already hurt skin. So make sure you put something soothing on it, rather than something that could potentially do more damage or even cause a painful sting.

Soothing, Cooling, Totally Hydrated

I was always very careful about the products I put on my son’s skin. I think it has a lot to do with why his skin has always been so beautifully soft.

I loved California Baby aloe vera from the moment I opened the very first container I bought. It smelled nice, but most of all, it felt amazing on my own skin. It always felt like my skin was instantly moisturized and my dry skin problem was solved right away.

California Baby is very different from Thaumaturgic Bio Mist, of course. It may have similar effects but if my earrings are on my ears, I don’t think I could rub cream all over it, like the ease of the mist.

My son rarely had a diaper rash when he was a baby, but when he did, I made sure to use this aloe very cream. He never cried from it and I loved knowing that I’m putting something very natural on his skin. If you’re going to use California Baby, I definitely recommend using the aloe vera one. I have tried the others and nothing seemed to work as fast and as well as the aloe vera cream.

I never seem to find this cream anywhere, but online. So I typically order 2 at a time when I do buy it.

Reduce and Prevent Stretch Marks and Many Skin Imperfections

I witnessed a real miracle when I was pregnant, using Mother’s Special Blend. I came across it by accident, simply because I didn’t want to smell like a walking, talking, pregnant cocoa butter.

When you’re pregnant, you know your skin will go through tremendous change. My friend hated her stretch marks when she was pregnant and still can’t seem to get rid of them, years after giving birth. I didn’t want that to happen to me, so I spent hours at Whole Foods and other health stores, reading labels and researching products.

I finally came across the pregnancy oil with 4 natural ingredients that are all meant to improve skin’s health. So I generously rubbed it on my belly at least 3 times daily and there was not one stretch mark that appeared! However, I focused so much on my belly that I forgot about the rest of my body. My thighs really felt it and suffered significantly during my third trimesterd. In fact, some marks were so pronounced that it actually turned purple!

I’m not pregnant nor have I been since the last 6 years, but I do still use this blend. It’s amazing. It doesn’t just keep my skin soft and without stretch marks, but it also seems to keep the wrinkles away. I’m all about aging gracefully, but if I could naturally slow down my skin’s aging process, then you better believe I’m going to do whatever I could.
