Harsh weather can be damaging on tough skin, but can almost destroy sensitive skin. Always look for natural products, if you can’t find that look for products that are specifically made for sensitive skin. Keep track of what breaks you out because you may be able to put a patter together. As we get older our skin get thinner causing it to become more sensitive and more susceptible to rashes, and bruising.

Always protect your skin with sunscreen, harsh sunlight can take years off of our skin. Smoking for one year adds 10 years worth of chemicals to your skin so for your skin’s sake don’t smoke. Exfoliate every chance you get, removing dead skin helps new skin develop and rebuild. Find products with olive oil in them, olive oil is a natural moisturizer that is great for your skin.
