Skincare For Sensitive Skin

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.

The secret to great skin isn’t always just courtesy of genetic luck. Many of us put a lot of time, effort and hard-earned money into perfecting our skincare routines. So when you’ve bought that expensive, holy grail serum that everyone’s raving about and it’s not working for your skin – what are you doing wrong? […]

Judging by Ari’s most recent haircut she shared on Instagram, it seems the chart-topping artist might be saying thank u, next to her signature pony (but her tweets tell me otherwise).   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Ariana Grande (@arianagrande) on Dec 5, 2018 at 11:54am PST What’s So Bad […]

There have been rumours swirling around our office that Vita Liberata could be one of the best tanning ranges we’ve ever tried – and that’s a big call coming from a group of beauty junkies. But even with that in mind, when I picked up the Ten Minute Tan, the sceptic in me had some […]
