Think of someone sensitive you know — they tend to react to things more easily and might not get along with everyone. Sensitive skin is the same! It is prone to being more easily irritated than other skin and isn’t exactly best buds with a lot of skin products out there. You have to be more careful when choosing products to really find the ones that will be welcomed by your skin.
The obvious thing to look out for is products that are labeled “for sensitive skin”. Other keywords like “fragrance-free”, “hypoallergenic”, or “all skin types” should be on your radar as well. Below are some holy grail finds that work wonders for many with sensitive skin. It is a mix of Korean and western brands, which can all be found in Korea.
5. Laneige Water Bank Essence
The Laneige Water Bank Essence is especially made for sensitive skin! Fresh and lightweight, it leaves the skin thoroughly hydrated. Laneige also recently came out with a new version of this product that is vegan-friendly and made from natural ingredients.
4. Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion
The Dramatically Different Clinique line is known for having a wide range of products that are hypoallergenic. They use high quality ingredients, are fragrance free, and have cute simple packaging. For this moisturizer, there is an original and gel version.
Soak Insider Tip: Use the gel version for hot, humid summers.
Physiogel products are gentle enough to use on eczema prone skin! Rich with skin strengthening ingredients, there are different formulas from dry and sensitive to the “calming relief” line to soothe super sensitive skin.
2. Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion
I love the Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion. It is gentle enough to use for both the face and body and can be used on eczema prone skin as well. I just keep it on my desk and use it as hand lotion or pat some on my face when it gets dry. The pump packaging makes it easy to use.
1. Mediheal Face Masks
Face masks are a trending part of skincare nowadays. I actually had a difficult time finding one that doesn’t sting or irritate my face, but Mediheal masks do the trick! It’s best to avoid face masks that are mainly advertising the visual and fragrance of the mask, rather than the benefits.
