Skincare for Sensitive Skin
If you have easily irritated, sensitive skin, you need to be extra mindful about what you apply to your face. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't have a skincare routine. The first step is knowing what ingredients work for you and which ones to avoid. Of course, irritants will vary from person to person. Still, there are a few things to consider, like using fragrance and alcohol-free products or formulas explicitly tested for sensitive skin. Don't know where to start? Here's a simple routine you can try: (1) Cleanser. All skincare routines should start with a cleanser. Look for a formula that won't strip your skin of its natural oils and has soothing properties. (2) Alcohol-free toner. (3) Serum. Find a serum that maintains the skin's moisture levels and guards against environmental irritants. (4) Moisturizer. Keeping your skin hydrated will reduce the risk of irritation. Reach for a fragrance-free, non-comedogenic moisturizer and apply it to slightly damp skin. (5) Sunscreen.
