Shop Skincare For Sensitive Skin


There are so many different ways in which you may have sensitive skin - but we've collected some of our favourite products that keep irritants to a minimum. Even with sensitivities, it's still so important to have a complete routine that ensures your skin is nourished, hydrated and protected.

 

While it's impossible to account for all skin sensitivities, there are some common ingredients that can act as a trigger to your skin. Every skin is different, so just because something doesn't work for you doesn't mean it's not someone else's saviour.

 

Sensitive skin can lead to outcomes such as swelling, itchiness, scaly skin amongst other things. It's also important to check the products that you're currently using - some products are too harsh to be used all over the face. Some products in particular are only to be used once every second night, usually products that contain actives such as retinol or glycolic acid.
 

Another common skincare oversight include the belief that natural products can't irritate the skin - of course, they can be just as active as more refined products! You may want to consider checking your products for essential oils or fragrance, both of which can be irritants.

 

It is so important to avoid harsh soaps and detergents, so try a gentle milky cleanser that locks in moisture. Be sure to use cool or lukewarm water, as hot water can damage the skin's barrier. Do not use a rough cloth for cleansing - we recommend a soft microfiber cloth if you feel your hands aren't doing the job.

 

If cleansing is too much for your skin, try using a micellar cleanser. Best used on a high-quality cotton pad to remove makeup and the day's impurities, this nifty product tones and cleanses all in one. Don't rub, instead but press the pad against your skin before gently wiping.

Nourishing

I have always loved the cult of Bioderma through their micellar water but thought I would delve into their skincare. As it is winter my skin can feel dehydrated and this was lovely, simple no frills does what it says on the tin.

Glow Glow Glow!!!

My dermal therapist recommended this to me after getting bad dermatitis on my face is various patches that once healed, left me very dry. After using this, the dryness was next to gone and was such an effective way for me to overcome the insecurities of having the dry patches. In summer, I use this as an all over the face mask which is amazing, I wake up with the softest and most natural glowing skin but in winter, I specifically target my dryness. A 2 in 1. Amazing!

Gentle enough for SUPER SENSITIVE SKIN

If you are scared like me to introduce exfoliation into your skincare routine. This is fab! I had been using skin medication for a year and had not been able to use exfoliants in addition to medication. So finally after a year and a half. I thought my skin was ready to introduce something gentle.

While this says safe DAILY gentle exfoliation. As my skin has not had any exfoliation for over a year. I have been doing every four days and slowly increasing to every second day.

Took me by surprise that it was a powder and you turn it into a paste. But i kind of love it. No stinging or stripping feeling. And no reactions.

Pretty Magical

A multi purpose balm with the nasties and toxins. It feels great on lips, hands, but my fave use is mixing it with some sugar for a scrub - hello soft skin! It lasts a while, too. It's a good product, but now always a must have.
