According to author Carolyn L. Todd in “11 Things Dermatologists Want You to Know About Sensitive Skin” for Self magazine, “It’s pretty common for your skin to become more sensitive as you age.” The skin’s lipid barrier begins to break down as one gets older, which can cause increased sensitivity over time. Plus, not only can some skincare products actually make sensitive skin worse, skincare products that you may have used for years can suddenly cause problems as you age.
The Lindi Skin skincare line was developed in 2003 as the first complete line designed specifically for the unique needs of people with the most sensitive and compromised skin. In fact, it’s even trusted by doctors for patients undergoing chemotherapy. (Because cancer treatments can weaken the immune system, Lindi Skin products contain anti-microbial and anti-fungal ingredients, as well as natural anti-inflammatory botanicals and powerful cell-renewing antioxidants.) For anyone who has ultra-sensitive skin, this is nothing short of miraculous.
One of the best products in the line is the body lotion. Especially around this time of year, my skin gets incredibly dry, due to sun, salt and chlorine exposure. But, many body lotions contain artificial colors and fragrances that practically send me into hives.
The body lotion from Lindi Skin is a thick, rich body lotion that moisturizes and instantly soothes. Although the creamy formula is dense, it doesn’t have a greasy feel and absorbs quickly, with no sticky residue.
The lotion has a light, pleasant fragrance that reminds me of sheets left outside to dry in the sun. There is absolutely no heavy perfumey smell.
After weeks of daily use, my skin had no reaction to this dermatologist-tested, allergy-tested and paraben-free formula. No red bumps, no itching… nothing except smooth, soft skin.
Although it is suggested that this is best used after a shower or bath when skin is still damp, I also like this lotion for my hands, as they really dry out during the day. And, since it absorbs so rapidly, I can continue on with my work almost immediately after applying. (I’ve taken to hiding it in my desk drawer though, and away from my coworkers, who tend to “borrow” occasionally!) Retail for an 8 oz. bottle: $27.50
