FOR SEN­SI­TIVE SKIN

Hair - - Skin Care -

Steer clear of prod­ucts with de­ter­gents, per­fumes, acids, al­co­hol and retinols. Opt for ones with in­gre­di­ents known to soothe the skin, such as chamomile or soy. Cleanser: Look for ‘fra­grance-free’, ‘soap-free’ and ‘hy­poal­ler­genic’ on the la­bel. Cleansers con­tain­ing mild sur­fac­tants, such as co­cami­do­propyl be­taine and polysor­bate 20 are usu­ally safe to use. Day Mois­turiser/Sun­screen: Try and avoid chem­i­cal sun­screens. Read the la­bel care­fully. Choose sun­screens with in­gre­di­ents like ti­ta­nium diox­ide and zinc ox­ide. Th­ese nat­u­ral min­er­als phys­i­cally block UVA and UVB rays with­out caus­ing ir­ri­ta­tion. Night Mois­turiser: Sen­si­tive skin is prone to red­ness and rosacea. You can use an ul­tra mild, fra­grance­free cream with humec­tants and emol­lients to heal the skin’s pro­tec­tive bar­rier. Look for in­gre­di­ents like plant-de­rived licorice root ex­tract or fev­er­few, both proven to calm in­flam­ma­tion.
