Skin Care Routine for Sensitive Skin

When someone has sensitive skin, they have to worry more about the skin care products used. Many products used for dry, combination, normal, or oily skin can contain harsh chemicals and ingredients that irritate your sensitive skin causing it to have red patches and become itchy in parts. However, these products available from are made specifically for your extra-sensitive skin and will cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize without irritating your skin or causing inflammation.


The first step to taking care of your sensitive skin is cleansing your skin. The cleansing process removes any dirt, oil, or surface debris from your skin. The important aspect of a cleanser for sensitive skin is that it is a gentle formula with no artificial ingredients, such as the UltraCalming Cleanser by Dermalogica. UltraCalming Cleanser is in a cream gel consistency that is easy to apply and rinse off. The cleanser helps improve your skin sensitivity while cleansing your skin and not leaving it irritated. It will further protect your sensitive skin from harsh winds and climate, cosmetic products, and pollution. Apply the UltraCalming Cleanser to your face and neck twice a day, rinsing off with warm water.


You also need to moisturize your skin, following your daily cleansing routine. The moisturizer is going to add back in any moisture the cleansing process stripped from your skin, while adding a protectant from sun and harsh climates. Be sure to get a moisturizer made specifically for sensitive skin such as the Barrier Repair from Dermalogica. This formula is extremely gentle that soothes your skin and improves its protective barrier. No artificial fragrances or colors are added to Barrier Repair. Apply it over your face and neck twice a day, after your cleanser and before adding cosmetics.


Protecting your skin from the sun’s UV rays is important for all skin types, but especially so with sensitive skin. You are more prone to dryness, irritation, inflammation, sunburn, and fine lines and wrinkled by having sensitive skin. Take care of your skin every time you leave the house by applying Super Sensitive Shield SPF 30 from Dermalogica. Super Sensitive Shield is the improved version of Super Sensitive Faceblock, made with SPF 30 protection. It is a mild sunscreen that protects your skin from UVA and UVB rays while not leaving an oily residue on your skin. Only natural mineral protectors are used, without chemical sunscreen ingredients. It can either be applied after your moisturizer or in place of it. Another great protectant product is the Redness Relief SPF20 product by Dermalogica. Redness Relief defends against inflammation for sensitive skin that is caused by exposure to the sun’s harsh rays. Similar to Super Sensitive Shield, Redness Relief can be applied after your moisturizer or in place of it. This is because it includes natural vitamins and minerals that add moisture into your sensitive skin.

Facial Mask

Lastly, you have the option of adding more moisture and health into your skin with a mask called the UltraCalming Relief Masque. Unlike other masks, the UltraCalming Relief Masque is extremely gentle and includes colloidal oatmeal which will rejuvenate your skin and reduce the amount of flare-ups from things like cosmetics, sun exposure, and harsh climate conditions. Apply the product to your face and neck and rinse off with warm water after 10 minutes. The mask should be used 2-3 times a week.
