How to Treat Sensitive Skin

When caring for sensitive skin, it’s important to be aware of the ingredients in your skincare and make sure that you’re using the best products for sensitive skin. Avoid formulas that contain large amounts of alcohol, soap and artificial fragrances. Stay away from harsh exfoliants to avoid further irritation and always use an SPF to limit UV damage.

Best Skincare Products For Sensitive Skin

Gentle Face Wash

Skin sensitivity can be the result of overly abrasive cleansing, so we recommend extra gentle cleansing formulas that glide onto the skin.

To start your skincare routine for sensitive skin, gently double cleanse with our Balancing Cleanse Duo. The oil-based cleansing balm and gentle cleansing foam boast SLS-free formulas that purify and refresh the skin without stripping away essential oils, making this duo a great facial cleanser for sensitive skin.  

How to use this gentle face wash: Massage a small amount of the Thermal Cleansing Balm into the skin using circular motions, then remove with warm water and our cleansing mitt or a wash cloth. Follow with a pea-sized amount of Cleansing Foam, massaging gently into damp skin before rinsing with warm water.  

For particularly sensitive and dry skin types, Cashmere Cleanser soothes and cleanses. This cream cleanser’s shea butter-enriched formula deeply nourishes and hydrates for a clean, smooth and balanced-looking complexion. Apply daily to damp skin and massage gently. Remove with warm water and a cleansing cloth or mitt.

Dependant on the severity of skin sensitivity, adding a weekly treatment to your skincare routine for sensitive skin can improve the tone and texture of the skin. During exfoliation, focus on gentle and hydrating ingredients, such as lactobionic acids (PHA’s) 

The Omorovicza Blue Diamond Resurfacing Peel gently encourages cell renewal using lactobionic acid to improve texture without irritation. Amino acids work to promote the production of collagen and increase skin elasticity. Apply a generous amount to the face and neck. Massage gently for two to three minutes using circular motions, taking care to avoid the eye and lip area. Rinse thoroughly.
