Skincare For Sensitive Skin

Skincare For Sensitive Skin

Having sensitive skin is a challenge. It’s hard to find products that will not cause your skin to break out or flare up; when you do find those products, it can be hard to update your routine with new products. If you have sensitive skin, your skin is prone to inflammation and irritation.

When it comes to your face, you want products that are specifically geared toward sensitive skin. Avoid products that are harsh and leave the skin feeling dry and itchy such as the Rose Renewal Cleanser. This cleanser is super gentle yet manages to effectively cleanse the skin of all impurities. It has rose water and aloe which are soothing ingredients to use for sensitive skin.

Another common ingredient that works great for sensitive skin is hyaluronic acid. This can be found in cleansers, moisturizers, serums, and pretty much any skincare product. If you’re looking for a moisturizer that will not clog your pores or cause your skin to get a bad reaction try the Rose Renewal 24/7 Ceramide and Tri-peptide Moisturizer. This moisturizer not only has the soothing ingredient of rose water but uses hyaluronic acid to enhance the skin’s moisture barrier.

Even though there are common ingredients used in products for sensitive skin there are still plenty of things that you should avoid. Eliminating products that have fragrances and alcohol will stop your skin from drying out and destroying your skin microbiome. Exfoliants are a big contributor to damaged skin microbiome as it causes the skin to become red and overly sensitive.

As an alternative to a rough exfoliant, we recommend the Flora and Noor Earth & Ocean Acne Fighting Mask as it gently gets rid of rough skin and unclogs pores. It uses aloe and Spirulina, which help prevent the skin from swelling up. Overall the mask is made from Kaolin clay which clears the skin of excess oil and dirt without causing any redness or irritation making it ideal for sensitive skin.

Dealing with sensitive skin requires just as much attention as one would with oily or combination skin. Often those with sensitive skin try to hold back when it comes to their routine but you shouldn’t! You want to give your skin all the love it needs. Don’t skip out on cleansers or toners because you’re afraid of the outcome. You just have to find the right products like the Rose Renewal Toner. You see toner and immediately think it’s another product that's going to dry out your skin but this toner utilizes rose water, organic aloe vera, and  hibiscus to cleanse, soothe, and moisturize the skin. 

Your sensitive skin is ready to be revived and take on new products. Make sure you are only using gentle cleansers, exfoliating in moderation, and moisturizing. All of your products should have calming ingredients and if the product doesn’t necessarily say ‘sensitive skin’ on it, you still want to double-check the ingredients because you never know.
