When you have sensitive skin, it can be difficult to know which skin care products or routines will not irritate your skin. Discover some of our best skin care tips for people with sensitive skin in the articles below.
Sensitive skin can present in many different ways from redness, irritation, dry or flakey patches, or even a bumpy rash. Skin can feel tight, dehydrated, and some products can have a stinging feeling when applied to sensitive skin. If you have sensitive skin, it’s likely your skin is more reactive to active ingredients. The best sensitive skincare approach is to look to calming, soothing, hydrating, and anti-inflammatory formulations. Taking a gentle skincare approach by ensuring your complexion stays comfortable, moisturized, strengthened, and that no flare ups or reactions are triggered by your skincare is the goal. Cooling ingredients such as aloe vera, hydrating hyaluronic acid, conditioning vitamin E and essential oils, are all sensitive skin soothers.
For more reactive moments, having a soothing face serum in your skincare kit is a must. You can also try a calming face mask for sensitive skin too to supplement your daily skincare routine. Investing in a rich, conditioning, restorative daily moisturizer and night cream too is a must for sensitive skin. And, as with skincare, it’s important to ensure the makeup you use is suitable for sensitive skin. At Glo all our makeup is clean, talc-free, and mineral-based meaning it’s nourishing and supportive for all skin types. If you have hypersensitive skin, with persistent redness, stinging, rashes, or flaky skin, it’s a good idea to seek a dermatologist’s advice.
