Even the most expensive brands of facial creams can cause rashes, irritation, or outbreaks for some people, especially those with sensitive skin. Moisturizing is a must, but trusting your sensitive face to these chemically manufactured products can be a little scary. Safe, natural products like those with essential oils are always a great alternative. Essential oils are excellent moisturizers and help skin heal from irritations. Using homemade natural products are not only safer and more beneficial for your skin, but they are considerably cheaper compared to brand products.
