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.

Is your hair suffering because of your busy schedule, downright laziness or refusal to go to your hairdresser out of fear of an overzealous trim? We’ve all been there. I’m damn good at maintenance, but even I can’t be bothered leaving a hair mask in for 20 minutes (just washing your hair is enough torture, […]

“What is a lash lift?” was one of the most searched beauty terms on Google last year, and since I’ve been having this treatment for about 2 years now, I figured I’m pretty well equipped to walk you through what the treatment involves. As someone with long, yet super straight lashes, I don’t mean to […]

Usually I’m a big spender when it comes to skincare and makeup (I don’t even want to look at my staff account because I’m scared to know how much I’ve spent in 3 years). So for me to buy a 10-piece brush set for 25 bucks is a little out of the ordinary. I intended […]
