Finding beauty products when your skin is sensitive can be difficult. If you’re like me, you’re always worried to try new things because you never know how your skin will react. Face masks and trendy beauty products are great, but they just aren’t practical for someone with hyper-sensitive skin. If you’re looking for new products to try, here are 10 that are sensitive skin safe!
Cetaphil Facial Moisturizer
Cetaphil is a great company for those who suffer from eczema and rashes. Since it’s made for those with sensitive skin in the first place, their moisturizer is perfectly safe and my go to. I often worry about over-hydrating my face, but this moisturizer gives it the perfect amount of hydration, especially for those rough patches.
Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser
Many daily cleansers and other beauty products have soap as an ingredient, and often times that’s what causes skin irritation. In addition to being ultra gentle, this daily cleanser is completely soap free, dye free and hypoallergenic. You should have absolutely no problem washing your face with this one.
Aveeno Ultra Calming Makeup Remover Wipes
It’s super important for everyone to make sure they take off their makeup when they come home, but it’s especially important for those of us with sensitive skin. Harsh scrubbing can really irritate the skin so it’s also important to have a good makeup removing wipe handy. These Aveeno wipes are ultra calming and will restore the natural balance after a night out.
Clinique Cleansing Brush
Cleansing brushes are absolutely essential beauty products. If you don’t have one of these you need to go to Amazon and order one now! They clean deep in the pores a normal washcloth could not reach, and although they look harsh, are dermatologist-verified for all skin types. Plus the deep cleaning will prevent any bacteria from affecting your already sensitive skin.
Fresh Face Exfoliant
Exfoliators are trendy beauty products, but most are rough and full of scents and irritating ingredients. This exfoliant from Fresh is noncomedogenic and uses all natural ingredients, so it should be safe for most people. It will leave your skin silky smooth and will help to eliminate any dry patches you may have.
Covergirl Sensitive Skin Foundation
Foundation is my ultimate kryptonite when it comes to beauty products. It always clogs my pores and leaves my skin feeling oily and red. This foundation from Covergirl has been the best one I’ve tried so far. It’s completely oil-free and very light but still gives me enough coverage.
Equate Sensitive Skin Body Wash
I love Bath and Body Works’ beauty products as much as the next person, but sometimes my body cannot handle all of the scents in them. This Equate body wash is hypoallergenic and paraben free but is still very fresh smelling. Plus is so incredibly cheap compared to a lot of body washes.
REN Finishing Serum
This finishing serum is Sephora clean approved and is perfect for hydrating your skin before applying your daily makeup. It’s perfect for both dryness and redness and will not clog up your pores.
I’m sure you’ve heard the hype about micellar water for cleaning your face, and I’m here to say that the hype is worth it. This simple little bottle can remove your makeup, cleanse your skin and tone it all with one swipe of a cotton ball. I’m loyal to Garnier, but there are hundreds of brands out there with similar waters.
This hydrating mist is essential to have in your cabinet or in your purse when you’re out and about. It’s great to use throughout the day when your skin is getting tight, uncomfortable and dry.
