Calming Facial Lotion Recipe For Sensitive Skin

I have sensitive skin, so many moisturizers irritate my skin.  Makeup and cleansers can cause redness and even bumps, so I have to be careful about which moisturizers I use.  For daily use, I use coconut oil as a moisturizer.  It's natural and works great to keep my skin nourished and soft.  When I want to treat myself or my skin is really irritated, I make this calming facial lotion for sensitive skin to soothe my skin.

Some people with sensitive skin can not tolerate witch hazel but find that mixing it with rose water helps.  If you are still sensitive to the witch hazel, use all rose water for this facial lotion recipe.

Lavender essential oil is said to have antimicrobial properties.  Acne is caused by bacteria in the pores of your skin, so this lotion could prevent or treat acne.

Some people also find that lemon juice can heal acne blemishes, but this hasn't been proven.  If it irritates your skin, you can omit this ingredient in this facial lotion for sensitive skin recipe.
