Studies show that 1 in 2 women identify as having sensitive skin, which can range from reactive redness and a mild intolerance of strong products to skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.
Despite these seemingly swelling numbers, sensitivity doesn’t have to be a life-long problem – once you understand your skin, you can help it to heal itself and feel more comfortable every day.
3 of the best skin products for sensitive skin:
1. La Roche-Posay Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser
The entire La Roche Posay Range is worth a look for reliably gentle but effective (and sensibly priced) skincare. This cleanser is particularly lovely, a loose milky fluid that you work in with water and splash away, leaving skin soft and clean at R250 for 200ml.
2. Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum
The original and best ceramide skincare, now supercharged and back to help rebuild your lipid layer, keeping skin soft, plumped and comfy. At R825 for 60 individual capsules, which are handy for travel, keep the serum totally clean and bacteria-free and ensure sure you use exactly the right amount each application.
3. Estee Lauder Triple Crème Skin Rehydrator
The ultimate rescue mask for dry, dehydrated skin. Try applying this triple-emulsion mask before getting into a warm bath and allow the steam help it to really sink in for 10-15 minutes and then rinse it off. Wave goodbye to dry, tight, flaky skin for 50ml at R720.
