sensitive skin

Identifying your skin type is essential in developing a daily care and treatment program that will help you maintain clear, healthy, radiant skin.

For a skin care program to be the most effective, your regimen of cleansing, toning, moisturizing and specialized treatments must be tailored to your own unique skin.

If you have sensitive skin it is best to avoid cleansing with extremely hot water, facial scrubs with granules, and stimulating facial masks - as well as products with heavy fragrance or alcohol. Minimize or avoid sun exposure.

recommended home care to clean and soothe sensitive skin:


Cleanse with a gentle, emollient, hydrating cleanser that does not lather, so that surface impurities are removed without drying the skins natural oils. Rinse with lukewarm water. Any eye make-up remover should be used prior to cleansing.


Gently exfoliate only once a week, concentrating on the nose, chin and forehead. Avoid using large, coarse grains containing walnut husks, which can be too irritating to sensitive skin.


Use a facial mask once a week, choosing a hydrating cream-based mask, with soothing ingredients and plant extracts, such as chamomile, mallow or calendula.


Use a toner containing plant extracts to soothe sensitive skin. Dampening a cotton pad first with water to dilute the toner is a good option for highly sensitive skin. Avoid toners with a high concentration of alcohol or fragrance.


Moisturize twice daily with a lightweight, fragrance-free moisturizer. Apply eye cream, preferably one containing sunscreen.


Use a sunscreen daily, all-year round. Avoid sunscreens containing Paba which can cause irritation. Instead, select those containing zinc oxide and titanium dioxide which are less likely to cause an allergic reaction. Apply sunscreen, with an SPF-15, at least thirty minutes before exposure to the sun. For added protection a wide brim hat is nice, too!


For improved texture and hydration use specialized treatments such as a vitamin C serum, collagen or aloe ampoules under moisturizer before bedtime.
