SIMPLE SOLUTIONS TO SENSITIVE SKIN

Sensitive skin is a difficult issue to diagnose. It can be any number of things that can cause hives, inflammation, unruly zits, and blemishes, or flaky skin. Whatever the reason, we have a solution! Below is a quick list of some remedies that you can use to calm your face and ease your mind. UH HUH HONEY The easiest remedy that we’ve found is so sweet and simple. One word, one ingredient: honey.
