Sensitive skin is a common condition that can develop at any age and can affect any area of your body. It makes you susceptible to irritation to some ingredients and fragrances in skincare products and cosmetics. Some symptoms include acne, oedema, rashes, redness, burning, itching, stinging and dryness. Sensitivities can be unsightly and uncomfortable but thankfully, we have a range of sensitive skin products that can help you stay irritation and inflammation free…
Sunscreens & Creams
A common cause of hypersensitivity can be overexposure to the sun, resulting in burns and irregular pigmentation. Whether it’s a sunny day or overcast, hot or cold, UV rays can still do significant damage. Just this reason alone is why sunscreen application is so important and one of the first steps you should take in your sensitive skin products routine. SPF15, SPF30 and higher are the most effective, as they form a protective barrier on the surface of the skin and reflect UV rays before they penetrate the epidermis. Our non-toxic formulations are made with the most efficacious UV protector Zinc oxide, our sunscreens are nourishing enough to use every day. Other creams that are great at settling skin sensitivities include our calming pH Cleanser and our nourishing, aroma free Rose Quartz Cream.
Balms & Exfoliators
Nothing says soft and soothing like a good face balm, so it’s no surprise this is a popular sensitive skin prone product. Not only do they seal in your other ingredients for optimal results, they also shield your skin from potentially aggravating external elements such as cold, dry/dehydrating air and environmental conditions. Our immensely hydrating face & body Beauty Balm has antibacterial properties (which means it can assist in the wound healing process and reduce inflamed, sensitive skin conditions) and non-comedogenic (which means it won’t clog pores exacerbating breakouts). Although “exfoliation” is a term that usually makes sensitive skin sufferers wince, it’s a great way to gently scrub away superficial dry skin cells and congestion causing debris. Our Volcanic Exfoliate is part of our sensitive skin products collection because it is a super fine pumice that has a gentle aroma.
Serums & Masks
Often formulated for aggressive skin penetration, our serums are potent, formulated at clinically tested concentrations, yet designed to stabilise the protective barrier while the skin naturally accepts our skin-synergistic molecules. This prevents irritation and the potential for an angry or inflamed frenzy with forceful absorption and barrier destabilising pH ranges. Our Vitamin A Regeneration Serum is on the sensitive skin products list because it consists of a hypersensitive-friendly formulation of clinically tested Retinols that will target ageing skin concerns like, irregular pigmentation, thinning dermal structures and fine line/wrinkle development. A face mask is often another successful way to soak up safe and refreshing ingredients. Our I’ll Make It All Better Sheet Mask has a refreshing gel consistency for soothing and inflammation fighting results. As well as containing calming Copper Peptides, Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), it also features Bladderwrack, which is known to soothe dehydration, itchiness and other discomforts associated with sensitivities such as acne or eczema.
