Sensitive skin and how to calm it

Having sensitive skin is something many of us deal with at one point or another. It can be something that develops as you get older, a change in environment or when you incorporate new ingredients in your skincare routine. Sensitive skin is generally characterised as being prone to irritation, redness, and dryness, and external factors like cold, heat, and dry air often cause discomfort and reactions such as tightness or rashes.

Calming sensitive skin

Since sensitive skin needs extra protection, it's essential to avoid products that contain powerful exfoliating acids or mechanical peels that can compromise the skin barrier. Instead, focus on soothing, strengthening, and calming formulas. Avoid unnecessary stress on the skin, such as hot showers, direct sun exposure, and overly active ingredients.

The best skincare routine for sensitive skin

To calm, balance and strengthen your skin barrier, we suggest the following:

  1. Cleanse using either The Bare Balm or The Magic Milk depending on your preferred formula as both are equally gentle and nourishing.
  2. Boost hydration by spritzing The Must Mist all over your face. 
  3. Pat in our multi-depth hydration fluid, The Shroom Essence, to nourish and plump your complexion. While it does contain PHA, it is incredibly gentle.
  4. For dry or irritated eyelids, apply The Eye Smoother
  5. Next, moisturise. If you are prone to blemishes or are on the oilier side, try The Face Jelly. If your skin is on the dryer side, apply The Chill Cream
