Sensitive Skin Skincare Guide

Patch Test New Products

Before applying a new product to your face, perform a patch test on a small area to check for any adverse reactions.

Fragrance-Free Products

Fragrances can be harsh on sensitive skin. Opt for fragrance-free or hypoallergenic products to minimize the risk of irritation.

Gentle Cleansers

Choose a mild, fragrance-free cleanser. Avoid harsh soaps and cleansers with strong chemicals that can strip the skin of its natural oils.

Use Lukewarm Water

Hot water can be irritating to sensitive skin. Wash your face with lukewarm water to avoid stripping away natural oils.

Be Mindful of Ingredients

Avoid products containing alcohol, sulfates, parabens, and synthetic dyes. Look for products with soothing ingredients like aloe vera, chamomile, and calendula.

Moisturize Regularly

Keep your skin hydrated with a gentle, hypoallergenic moisturizer. Look for one with ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, or ceramides.

Sunscreen is a Must

Protect your skin from the sun with a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30. Choose a sunscreen formulated for sensitive skin.

Avoid Exfoliating Too Often

Limit exfoliation to once or twice a week using a mild exfoliant. Over-exfoliating can irritate sensitive skin.

Manage Stress

Stress can exacerbate skin sensitivity. Practice stress-reducing activities such as meditation, yoga, or deep breathing.
