Do red patches, dryness, and irritated skin sound familiar to you? If you’ve got sensitive skin, you probably know how frustrating it can be to deal with. But it’s not without a remedy, and non-aggravating skincare products can help a lot. Now, what does that mean? Well, here’s what you should look out for:
1. Pick colourless product textures. While synthetic colourants may make the product look pretty, they can be allergens that irritate sensitive skin.
2. You don’t always have to go completely scentless. It can get boring using skincare with no scent, so we’re grateful there’s a safer way to pick scented skincare. Just look for ones that are hypoallergenic, which means they won’t put you at risk of irritation despite the scent. We especially like The Body Shop’s hypoallergenic Almond Milk & Honey range for this.
3. Rich, creamy textures may make your skin work harder to absorb them. Let your skin relax with light nourishing products that don’t skimp on the nourishment.
