Think mod­er­a­tion.

If you’re prone to sen­si­tiv­ity, New York City der­ma­tol­o­gist Dr Neil Sadick, says to avoid phys­i­cal scrubs (which can lead to tears in del­i­cate skin) and in­stead use a chem­i­cal ex­fo­liant (these rely on en­zymes or acids)—and no more than once a week. We like (1) Dr. Jart+ Der­ma­clear Mi­cro Milk Peel and Mi­cro Pad set (RM118.30, 11street. my), which buf­fers lac­tic and sal­i­cylic acids with sooth­ing al­lan­toin and co­conut milk—you leave it on for only one minute, less­en­ing the chance of ir­ri­ta­tion. Build up the bar­rier.

Your skin’s bar­rier is al­limpor­tant: It’s the shield

that pre­vents irritants like makeup and dirt from get­ting be­neath the sur­face and caus­ing ma­jor drama. Overus­ing ex­fo­liants chips away at this struc­ture— which al­ready loses strength nat­u­rally as you get older. Once a day, put on a treat­ment “made with in­gre­di­ents like ce­ramides, choles­terol and fatty acids, which for­tify the bar­rier and fill in cracks that could al­low irritants to slip in and cause trou­ble,” says En­gel­man.

(2) El­iz­a­beth Arden Ad­vanced Ceramide Cap­sules (RM499, za­ my) con­tains all three in­gre­di­ents.
