If you have dry skin that is certain to become sensitive. But you do not need to worry because this type of dry skin that needs careful handling. It's good you see some steps to clean the skin to dry properly.

Main things you must do is to clean with a gentle cleanser once day that is before you sleep at night. In the morning you can just clean your face with warm water and use moisturizer. Type of skin tends to dry the muddy, so there will be a dead skin cells turnover once week. To do this process, you
select a scrub small grain-grain, smooth and soft.

Today more and more people are becoming aware of the benefits nature has to offer and are seeking environmentally friendly products in their skin care regimen.

Therefore, it is no surprise that skin care manufacturers are catering to this wave od eco-friendly consumers and labeling products natural and/organic.

The words natural and organic are interpreted and implied as the same meaning, however, there are distinct differences between the two.

Natural-this implies that one, some, or all of the ingredients are unprocessed and comes from nature, such as fruits, vitamins and mineral for instance; Aloe vera is a natural products thus a product with aloe vera could be labeled natural.

However, that does not mean the natural ingredient was grown organically and it does not mean that the skin care product is not mized with synthetic/chemical ingredients. The term natural is not regulated in the skin care industry so the term natural is used loosely and extensively in marketing ploys.

Organic-means that no chemicals or pesticides were used during the growth of various plants and herbs. Additionally, the processes to entract the various oils from the plant did not use any type of chemical processing.

If a product with aloe vera in it is labeled organic, then the Aloe would have had to been grown without any types of pesticides and there would be no chemical processing to extract the oils from the plant. Thus the product could be labeded organic.

A good analogy would be a skin care product which lists papaya and Aloe vera. If the papaya, and aloe vera were grown with any tipe of pescides then the skin care product can not labeled organic, however, it could be labeled all natural and still can contain harmful chemicals.

Additionally, just because a product is labeled natural or organic that does not mean you will not have an allergic reaction. A product made with beeswax or honey would not be recommended for people that are allergic to bees, a product with almond oil would not be recommended for people with nut allergies. A skin test is always recommended with any new skin care product whether it be a synthetic, natural or organic product.
