Dealing with sensitised skin can be so tricky; finding products which don’t irritate your face is often trial and error, but the very act of trying new products can be enough to make your skin feel red, tight and itchy. Dermalogica have a whole range of products which are designed specifically for skin which is feeling over-sensitised, and we thought we’d give you a quick overview of some of the products:
Cleansing sensitive skin is often a delicate balancing act between getting your skin clean and not irritating it, which is why you need a specific cleanser such as Dermalogica UltraCalming Cleanser. It’s a soothing, pH-balanced gel/cream that glides easily over face and eyes to cleanse without stripping your skins protective barrier whilst helping to calm and cool sensitised or highly reactive skin.
Sensitised skin is often very dehydrated and needs a refreshing wash of moisture to get it back to its best. This moisturiser is a gel which melts into the skin, forming a weightless barrier against environmental assault. It contains apple extract and glycerine, as well as double hyaluronic acid to lock moisture in.
Protecting your face from the sun when it’s already suffering from sensitivity is really important, and not just on sunny days, but all year round. This primer from Dermalogica contains a broad-spectrum sunscreen and has a green tint, which reduces the appearance of redness. It’s perfect as a translucent, redness-reducing makeup prep and helps to soothe and strengthen the skin.
Giving your skin a shield against the harsh pollutants and environmental issues that might irritate your complexion is an important part of your daily routine, and this barrier repair is designed for exactly that. It’s a waterless moisturiser which melts into the skin and protect the skin from all the things which can cause redness and irritation. It soothes the skin and create a smooth base, ideal for using before make-up.
Il-based products are a great ally for irritated skin as often the skin is lacking the natural oil that it need to maintain a healthy balance. It nourishes and soothes the skin, reinforcing the skins naturally protective barrier against environmental aggressors and preventing irritation before it starts. It can be used twice a day over the face, neck and chest.
