It is no secret that I have the most sensitive skin in the entire world.  I have talked about it a plethora of times here on the blog and I wont stop talking about it because it is probably the most annoying problem to have during all seasons of the year.  I basically just feel like I cant keep up.  When it's warm out my skin is excessively oily, when it's cold out it's so dry and cracking.  

I know what you're thinking: that's everyone's problem.  Let me tell you though, I have severe eczema and sensitive skin in general and have had it all my life.  Here are a couple of products I have been using lately that have made it a little easier.

These are the products that are on rotation for when I get out of the shower.  Not pictured (because I need to buy more) is the Honest Baby Oil.  I specifically buy that one because I needed oil that was going to be good for sensitive skin and what's better than baby oil?  

I know it's a sensitive subject to have Palmer's Cocoa Butter Lotion on here so let's start with that.  After losing some weight, my skin was not as amazing as I wanted it to be, so I was looking for some solutions to combat just that.  I turned to Palmer's Cocoa Butter Lotion for a couple of different reasons.  After losing the weight, I had a couple of lightly colored stretch marks on my stomach (I cannot believe I am saying this on my blog for the internet to read, but hey -- it's real life!).  I was looking to diminish them and take away the color and discoloration completely.  This stuff really helped!

I like to switch back and forth between the Honest Baby Oil and the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream here and there.  My all time favorite moisturizer is definitely the FAB Ultra Repair Cream and I normally only used it for my face.  Imagine my surprise when I heard online somewhere that I could use it on any part of my body.  I don't know why I didn't think it was okay to use anywhere else, but it's a game changer.  My sensitive skin on the back of my legs was almost completely gone instantly.  I could not believe it.  

The Honest Baby Oil is jus a great neutral oil to use for hydration when you don't want a heavier cream.  The Frankincense Oil is something I have only recently been using.  I do tend to think that it is really interesting and does help out a little with removing irritation when you apply it overnight.  When you wake up in the morning, it helps remove redness from your skin.  Especially if you've just shaved your legs. 

In the shower I love using St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub.  I think I've been using this stuff since middle school, no joke.  For as long as I can remember I have been using this and I really have never had chronic or terrible acne (knock on wood).  It has always help my face stay nice and clear so why not use it to exfoliate everywhere on my body?  I tried it with the FAB Ultra Repair Cream so I tried it here and it worked!  

I had gone through so many more expensive products to try and find something that would work perfectly and I cannot believe that I ended up going back to something that I had been using since middle school and was only about $3-$4 at Target.
