Who says just because you have sensitive skin it means that you can’t have a great skin care routine?
It’s such a hassle testing out new products all the time and just waiting to see if it’s going to break you out or irritate your skin. Lucky for you, we’ve done the work for you. Take a look at these products, you’re going to want to add them to your routine right away!
We have a quizif you’re unsure which skin type you are!
Before we do anything that makeup needs to come off! For a nice gentle cleanse of the face try the NYX Stripped Off Cleansing Balm on BeautySphere.co. It’s formulated with green tea extract, which has anti-inflammatory benefits. To get that stubborn mascara off, an eye makeup remover is really important. I suggest the Rimmel London Gentle Eye Makeup Remover. It’s very suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
Toners prep the skin before using a serum or a moisturizer. They help get rid of any leftover makeup residue or bacteria left on the skin. When looking for a toner try to avoid any that have alcohol in them as they dry out your skin easily. The COSRX Centrella Water Alcohol-Free Toner is a great option for your sensitive skin.
Hydrating Face Mask
A mask is the one step of the routine you don’t want to be doing everyday. Face masks are best used once or twice a week. The Absolute 24k Glow Gold Gel Mask is infused with skin-softening extracts and rejuvenating botanicals for deeply penetrating hydration. It also has real gold in it, that’s reason enough to want to try it!
Serum & Oil
The type of serum you use is different for everyone. There are a variety of serums out there, including ones specifically for acne, hydration, exfoliation, and anti-aging.
The Mizon Original Skin Energy Hyaluronic Acid is best used for sensitive skin as it is free from fragrance, artificial colour, and parabens.
A face oil is completely optional in your skin care routine. Not everyone needs to use one. It can be used daily, weekly, mixed in with your moisturizer or after you have moisturized. If you are oily regularly, I would skip this step. The Age Perfect Cell Renewal helps renew skin cells while not leaving your skin looking oily after use.
The E.l.f Daily Hydration Moisturizer is a great option for your sensitive skin as it it very lightweight and only lightly scented. It has Jojoba, Aloe, Vitamin E and Cucumber to help soothe your skin.
To help protect the delicate skin around your eyes try using an eye cream. The COSRX Honey Ceramide Eye Cream is formulated with sunflower oil which is very high in Vitamin E. This helps give moisture to your easily irritated skin.
Another item that is not necessarily required in your routine, but is a great step to have is applying lip balm. If you struggle with dry lips then it is definitely something you want to do daily. The Rimmel London Lip Conditioning Lip Balm locks in moisture for up to 8 hours and helps prevent lips from cracking.
