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.

Okay if you use a little

I've used this product for about 2 years, along with others from alpha-h. I've always put some hydrator gel on before applying quite a small amount of this because it's not hydrating enough on its own. At the same time though I find it feels quite oily so I've never put a lot of it on - I have oily skin myself. It also contains beeswax, which is a shame as I'm vegan so I need to find another sunscreen.

Immediate plumping effect

My mum can’t live without this product! She (55, combination skin) uses it in her nightly routine as well as in the morning before applying make up. I (28, oily skin) only use it occasionally because it tends to sit on top of my skin but it still has an immediate plumping effect on me - especially around the eyes. If you have baggage in that area, this hyaluronic acid is for you

Brightens and Evens Skin

This is one of my new favourites. I use it at night time and wake up with bright even skin that feels insanely smooth. I’m prone to redness and freckles and when I wake up my skin is all one tone. I notice the difference from day to day, my skin is increasingly resilient and I’m wearing less and less foundation.
