YOUR STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE TO CARE FOR SENSITIVE SKIN

Whether it’s a change of weather, added stress or even getting a new pet, if you have sensitive skin you’ll know that triggers and flare-ups can come from anywhere. Skin can also become sensitive at any time in life and occurs when the skin’s natural barrier function is weakened, making it susceptible to irritants and allergens. It’s not all doom, gloom and avoiding chlorine though – here’s a step-by-step guide to help you calm down sensitive skin and protect it from potential triggers.

STEP ONE:

Gently cleanse away dirt, oil and impurities with a mild facial cleanser, applying with the fingers and removing with a cotton pad or rinsing with water

The pH-balanced Centella Sensitive Facial Cleanser is one of our mildest cleansers and helps to hydrate the skin for up to eight hours and strengthen the skin’s barrier function, gently removing dirt without causing further irritation.

STEP TWO:

An alcohol-free facial toner enriched with naturally derived ingredients can help to soothe problem skin and maintain its natural balance, as well as refreshing it in the morning.

We recommend the Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol-Free Toner that’s enriched with floral extracts and even includes calendula petals that are inserted by hand in the apothecary tradition.

STEP THREE:

All skin types, including problem and oily skin – despite many people being concerned about mixing oil with oily – can benefit from a non-comedogenic facial oil.

Enriched with the latest wonder ingredient, our Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Concentrate calms the feelings of stressed skin and relieves discomfort with its 100% naturally derived formula. Pressed into the skin morning and night, it helps skin to protect itself by strengthening its natural barrier. When this protective barrier function is compromised the skin becomes susceptible to irritants including allergens and bacteria.

STEP FOUR:

Modern life can take its toll on your skin, so it’s important to replenish moisture, trapping in essential water. Keeping your skin hydrated can also reduce irritation and make your skin feel more comfortable.

 Our Centella Sensitive Cica-Cream acts as a daily skin barrier cream providing an intense hit of hydration, while also being non-comedogenic and fast-absorbing so you can avoid excessive rubbing and irritating already sensitive skin. Formulated with mannose and rose gallica, our Skin Rescuer is enriched with ceramides and helps to protect the skin from daily stresses, strengthening its barrier function and helping to prevent Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL).

STEP FIVE:

Exposure to the sun and its harmful UVA and UVB rays can cause flare-ups and exasperate sensitive skin. To keep yourself protected, apply a sunscreen that delivers powerful protection to your face daily before venturing out – even on cloudy days.

Ultra Light Daily UV Defense is also a lightweight, non-comedogenic sunscreen that quickly absorbs to provide broad spectrum SPF 50 PA ++++ to protect against environmental aggressors.
