My favorite 100% Pure products for dry sensitive skin include the aqua hydrating mask and organic argan oil creamy cleanser. As a younger woman I was prone to oily skin breakouts in the T-zone, but as I approached middle age and especially during the dry Midwestern winter months, I’ve moved away from products that control oily skin to products that help hydrate.
Although I am blessed with having a virtually wrinkle free complexion, and I’m often mistaken for being in my mid 30s rather than my mid 40s, I’ve struggled with enlarged pores and at times unattractive dry patches and red blotchy skin from synthetic ingredients in skin care products. I have a long history of skin sensitivity and several years ago I stumbled upon the 100% Pure brand after bad experiences with high end makeup that included ingredients which caused an allergic reaction on my face.
Unlike many brands on the market these days that offer skin cleansing products, most 100% Pure products are gluten free and all are cruelty free and made with organic ingredients that promote natural healthy skin. They use gluten free vitamin E derived from cold-pressed rice bran. The company has facial and body cleansers and moisturizers as well as color cosmetics. What originally turned me on to 100% was their promise to provide products completely free of toxins. They do not include artificial colors or fragrances. They also avoid synthetic chemical preservatives. And for me and my reactive skin, this was truly needed.
The company has many products that are also corn free, but not everything on their product line is corn free and it is also not produced in a corn free facility. Their packaging is biodegradable and made from peanuts created from corn starch. While this may not be an issue for corn intolerant women, it may be for women with severe corn allergy and allergic skin reactions to corn based products.
About 4 years ago I spent a weekend at a tournament in the hot sun and suffered skin damage that I thought was permanent beneath my left eye. It was an age spot that despite exfoliation and professional facials seemed quite stubborn. It was around that time that I discovered argan oil and it’s proven anti-aging benefits. I purchased 100% Pure’s Organic Argan Oil and was amazed to discover the age spot fading over a 3 month period when other products couldn’t achieve the same results. At this point, I was hooked.
100% Pure Products for Dry Sensitive Skin
I’ve recently discovered their Argan Oil Creamy Cleanser and am pleased to find it cleanses my face without stripping my dry sensitive skin and drying it out. It’s a mild cleanser that leaves my skin feeling soft. The product includes healthy antioxidant rich ingredients like coconut oil, gluten free vitamin E and vitamin C, as well as cocoa and aloe. It’s gentle and soothing, and does not cause me to have blotchy irritated skin patches.
100% Pure also sells a charcoal sponge that can be used to gently exfoliate with this cleanser. The sponge includes a handle for easy hanging and drying after use.
I like to top my cleansing routine with a quality moisturizer. I was recently offered the Aqua Boost Hydrating Mask to sample and was pleasantly surprised by it’s coverage and silky feel against my skin.
Users can apply a heavy coat and leave the mask on for 15-20 minutes then rinse, or apply a very light coat and leave it on overnight or throughout the day. For me, I prefer to apply and rinse, as heavy moisturizing cream often gives my complexion a dewey look rather than a matte finish.
A light brush of mineral powder can help take away the shine.
Some women with dry sensitive skin prone to breakouts may find an overnight application will exasperate their skin and cause white heads. 100% Pure recommends women apply and rinse for best results.
