Five products for sensitive skin

#dontsweatit Beauty

Does your skin shudders at the sight of brightly coloured moisturisers? Do you end up with a rash just by looking at products for normal skin? If the answer is yes then you are in luck! We have completed a roundup of our five favourite products for skin that needs a little extra TLC.

If you skin is feeling a little taught and dry, why not replenish moisture levels while you sleep by using this ORIGINS night cream. Did you know that at night skin loses more moisture and its barrier is more vulnerable? Which is why a night cream can be essential for sensitive skin, especially dry sensitive skin. This overnight cream is fortified with Rose of Jericho plus Lychee, Watermelon and Rhodocrosite so you wake up feeling refreshed, supple and comfortably hydrated.

The Body Shop has a wide range of products for sensitive skin that have been dermatologically tested. We love this lightweight, dual-purpose mattifying priming gel that helps to absorb excess oils for a silky, shine-free finish, or pop over your lippy to create a matte finish.

Excess rubbing and rinsing is a big No No for sensitive skin so to avoid aggravating sensitive skin try using micellar water. Micellar water contains micelles that act like magnets, gently lifting away makeup and impurities from your skin. We love this Bioderma Sensibio H2O Miscellar water with its alcohol-free formula Sensibio H2O guarantees to be kind to sensitive eyes and skin but strong enough to remove all makeup including waterproof mascara.

Ok so we are blowing our own trumpet here, but our Really Pure deodorant is a great way to help you stay naturally fresh and let your skin breathe thanks to its formula made with Potassium Alum, a natural mineral. It is enriched with Oat Oil and is extra kind to your skin so perfect for those of us with sensitive skin!

Keeping sensitive skin hydrated is important and this gel-based foundation from MAC provides light to full coverage, with a creamy texture that hydrates your skin and eliminates any dullness. We would recommend giving it a go if you are struggling to find a foundation to suit your sensitive skin. We have lots of great make up tips!
