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.

Skin supple & smooth

I have used Hyaluronic Acids previously however new user to *the ordinary* I found their product alot smoother and less tacky than other products, I am impressed with the results after 3 weeks, my skin no longer feels dry and lines are more plumped and smoother on touch. I also now use this product after a 80 per cent lactic acid peel, it speed up the healing time assisting hydration and aiding healing time.
