Beginner-Friendly Skincare Routine: Sensitive Skin Edition

If sensitive skin seems like a permanent concern for you, then you’re in the right place!

Navigating your way through sensitive skin can be quite exhausting. With a number of promising options out there, it can be tricky trying to find the right products that won’t break you out. It’s like a constant tug of war between potent active ingredients that offer targeted solutions, and products that focus on soothing and healing skin from the inside out. But before we get into the nitty-gritties of routines and ingredients, it’s important to identify the signs of sensitive skin.

Does your skin:

  • Tingles or stings
  • Prone to rashes and hives
  • Feels itchy and looks flakey
  • Breaks out easily
  • Looks and feels irritated

Then yes, you do have sensitive skin!

The key to cracking the perfect sensitive skin routine is keeping it simple and sticking to the basics.

  1. Cleanse: Stick to a gentle, non-stripping cleanser for your AM & PM routines. The Fresh Start Barrier Boost Cream Cleanser is packed with ceramides and squalene. These ingredients are highly recommended for sensitive skin as they are gentle & help keep the moisture locked in.
  2. Moisturise: Irrespective of the season or your skin type, a moisturiser has to be a non-negotiable part of your skincare routine. A lighter gel-based moisturiser for the day, like the Daily Dew Barrier Restore Gel Moisturiser will help get the job done. And a rich, more nourishing one, like Hello Hydration Barrier Boost Cream Moisturiser for your night-time routine. Both these moisturisers are packed with ceramides and hyaluronic acid that are sensitive skin friendly.
  3. Protect: There’s no excuse to skip or skimp on SPF in any season. Sensitive skin is prone to getting sunburned or irritated easily, make sure to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 50. The Sunny Side Up Barrier Protect Hydrating Sunscreen will do more than just protect your skin. The ceramides and vitamin E helps protect your skin barrier and keep skin moisturised.

This beginner-friendly sensitive skin routine will get you through any and every day in just 5 minutes. If you wish to take it up a notch, you add the Calming Drops Barrier Restore Soothing Serum to your routine. Made to heal stressed skin from within, it is packed with gentle, skin-loving ingredients like ceramides, niacinamide, cucumber and aloe vera extract. It is the perfect solution for when your irritated skin needs a calming fix.

Tips to keep in mind when dealing with sensitive skin:

  • Patch Test – Before going all in with any product, skincare or makeup, do a patch test to ensure it doesn’t cause flare ups or skin irritation. Do a patch test on your inner arm for 24-48 hours to check if it’s safe to use.
  • Understand ingredients – For sensitive skin, skin soothing and hydrating ingredients like ceramides, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, squalene, and cica work wonders. These ingredients help keep skin moisturised and helps calm irritation, if any.
  • Avoid hot water – When washing your face, avoid using hot water on your face. Hot water can strip off natural oils and leave your skin feeling dry and stretchy. The temperature can also intensify redness & skin irritation.
  • Use face masks – While this may seem like something you can easily skip, adding a face mask to your routine can do more good than you think. A hydrating sheet mask with calming benefits like the Dew Drench Barrier Build Hydrating Sheet Mask. It offers long-lasting hydration thanks to the hyaluronic acid, and the natural goodness of aloe vera helps rejuvenate skin.
  • Avoid fragrances – Products with fragrances can do more harm than good. While they may feel nice on application, fragrances can cause skin irritation.
  • Consult a dermatologist – Not every problem on your skin has a DIY answer, sometimes you need an expert. Consult a dermatologist for your skin concerns as you deem fit.

We understand that sensitive skin is tricky to navigate, but there’s nothing a simple skincare routine packed with gentle ingredients and formulations can’t solve. All you have to do is listen to your skin!
