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.

Good Quality

The product's high quality, indicated by professionals. It helps a lot to keep the skin healthy and smooth. The only thing about it, it dries fast, so is easily spreadable if used with a bit of another face cream.

Hyaluronic Acid 2% Supersize!!

I am in love with this serum! It beautifully hydrates my otherwise dry skin - 4 drops covers face & neck. I use it morning & evening under other treatments & under makeup. I am so pleased that The Ordinary produces this in the supersize, as it is a staple in my skincare.

Best sunscreen ever

Amazing! By far the best sunscreen I have tried. Goes on smooth and doesn't make skin feel too sticky, but also feels nicely moisturising. Doesn't make me oily like most sunscreens, and hasn't upset my skin at all. Some reviews notice a smell but I think it smells less than any other sunscreen I have used. This product feels and smells the least like sunscreen I have ever tried (and I have tried a...
