Sensitive skin is difficult to define since it may refer to a variety of conditions. Perhaps you have redness, or rosacea or your skin is easily irritated by standard skin-care chemicals. Sensitive skin may be more sensitive to wind, sunlight, and pollution, as well as flakiness and itching. If your skin is sensitive in any of these ways, search for mild cosmetics that are free of potentially irritating substances. Everything in our regimen is dermatologist-approved for sensitive skin (but it's always best to patch-test any product first to ensure it works well with your skin's specific needs).

With so many intriguing skincare products to explore, it's easy to want to try them all. However, if you have sensitive skin, you must exercise caution while applying products to your face and body. But it doesn't mean you can't have fun with skincare. The first step is to figure out if you have sensitive skin and, if so, what's causing it. Next, understand what to look for and what to avoid in items. Once you've figured out what your skin requires, you can create a regimen that works for you. Here are some pointers for creating a sensitive skin-friendly skincare regimen.

A Mild Cleanser

The first step towards skincare is choosing the right cleanser. The right cleanser will transform your skin and make your skin glow. Women with sensitive skin have a hard time choosing products that are not too harsh on their skin. Choosing products with fragrances and alcohol is a complete no for people with sensitive skin. People with sensitive skin must choose gentler products that are devoid of any irritants. A harsh cleanser will cause breakouts and will lead to acne. Opt for a gentle cleanser to cleanse your face. 

Make sure that you wash your face at least twice a day so as to keep the dirt and dust away. SInce you have sensitive skin, your skin is more prone to allergic reactions to dirt.

Alcohol Free Toner

If you use a toner, make sure that you pick one that is alcohol free. From maintaining the pH balance of your skin to soothing your skin, there are numerous benefits of using a toner. It also helps to tighten your pores and minimise them. People with sensitive skin largely benefit from using a toner to cleanse their skin.

 It is recommended that one does not use toners with too much alcohol or astringent ingredients in them. Women with sensitive skin types must remember that their skin can react easily to harsh substances and hence they must only and only choose products that have milder and calming ingredients.



A face serum is a must for one and all. A serum helps to retain the moisture and hydrate the skin thoroughly. A serum shall ensure that your skin remains youthful and glowing in the long run. It will make your skin look fresh and rejuvenated after regular use. A serum is an integral part of the skin care routine and hence you must not skip it. In summers, it is very likely that our skin loses its hydration and moisture. The serum will help to moisturise your skin thoroughly.

A soothing moisturiser is a must for people with sensitive skin. While choosing a moisturiser, only pick the ones that are non-comedogenic. Non-comedogenic moisturisers will help to keep pores clear and even reduce acne. Do not choose moisturisers that have fragrance. Choose moisturisers that are water-based, fragrance free and organic. 

Well, many women with sensitive skin skip this part of skin care completely fearing that the wrong product will lead to more breakout. But remember, that your skin needs as much hydration as anyone else’s so take time to pick the product that suits you well.
