Some of our recommendations for sensitive skin in the order of skin care routine
Here are some of the products that appeared in the video that will work great when you have sensitive skin
1. Cleansing: Wash face with foaming cleansers
- Name: [KLAIRS] Rich Moist Foaming Cleanser- Why recommended for sensitive skin care routine?: Lesser the stimulation the better! Since it pumps out in foam type, you don't have to roll your fingers harshly on the skin to create foams to clenase your face. But more than anything, the cleanser keeps your skin moist even after cleansing thanks to some amazing ingredients.
2. Toner: Lesser the fragrance!
- Name: [KLAIRS] Supple Preparation Facial Toner- Why recommended for sensitive skin care routine?: The smallest amount of natural essential oil is added to the toner to add just the hint of lavendar scnet! So most of the people don't have any problem at all using it but it you have extremely sensitive skin, your skin will react to it. But don't worry! Beacuse we have unscented version coming out very soon! All the ingredients will be exactly the same but this time, zero essential oil will be included! So good news for those with extremely sensitive skin!
3. Exfoliation: Don't rub it off but melt away dead skin cells!
- Name: [BY WISHTREND] Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water- Why recommended for sensitive skin care routine?: When you have sensitive skin, exfoliation will be the toughest out of all the skin care routine. Avoid, physical exfoliants like scrubs and peels but rather stick to chemical exfoliants like AHA. This mandelic water will help melt away dead skin cells and help you with skin turnover without irritation. All you have to do is gently wipe away with a cotton pad.
4. Sunscreen: Thin & light but effective!
- Name:[KLAIRS] Mid Day Blue Sun Lotion- Why recommended for sensitive skin care routine? One of the reasons why it's loved so much among those with sensitive skin is because of the ingredients. The guaiazulene ingredient will help to calm the skin. When a sunscreen not only protects your skin from the UV rays but has light and cooling texture but even calms irritated skin? This is the type of sunscreen that you would want to reach out for if you have sensitive skin.
