Skincare for Sensitive Skin

Understanding sensitive skin

People with sensitive skin often struggle with redness and allergies, often requiring extra care when choosing facial products. They may experience dryness, flakiness, swelling, roughness or dullness. This happens when your skin’s natural barrier is jeopardised, causing dehydration and infiltration of irritants. These factors are usually derived from things that the skin is most exposed to, such as the sun and certain ingredients in cosmetics and facial care products.

Caring for sensitive skin

If you have sensitive skin, you need to be extra careful about the products you choose, and go for sensitive skin products instead of generic ones. Avoid cosmetics with harsh chemicals as bad chemicals can trigger skin irritations. Choose facial products with plant-based ingredients instead for gentle skin care due to the lack of chemicals. At Clarins, we choose sustainable plant-based ingredients that are beneficial for your skin and the environment.

Choosing sensitive face products

Clarins’ sensitive skincare products are carefully designed to be as gentle and pure as possible, using high quality botanical ingredients that nourish and soothe skin. Cleanse your skin with the Extra-Comfort Cleansing Cream, a soothing anti-pollution cream cleanser for skin challenged by a polluted urban environment. It removes makeup and impurities while delivering comfort and clarity to your skin. This creamy skincare for sensitive skin is enriched with delicious Shea, Mango and Moringa extracts to restore your skin’s purity, radiance and beauty while protecting the skin against traces of pollution. It also softens, hydrates and restores your skin’s biological balance to preserve its natural youthfulness.

Exfoliating is an important step in sensitive skin treatment. Dead skin cells accumulate on our skin each day, and if left untreated, they lead to clogged pores, breakouts, blackheads and dullness. Therefore, it’s good to exfoliate once a week with our Clarins Gentle Exfoliator to remove dead skin cells, strengthen your skin’s resistance to wrinkles and encourage cell renewal. This sensitive skin product is a gentle fluid exfoliating lotion that visibly smooths, softens and brightens your complexion. Apart from removing impurities and dead skin cells, it also tightens the pores. Apply this to your face and neck with a cotton pad, avoiding the eye contour. Allow it to dry for a minute before following up with your toner.

Using a toner helps balance your skin’s pH level, which reduces its chances of being prone to oiliness and infection. Toning also prepares your skin for the next skincare step. The Extra Comfort Toning Lotion is packed with a rich blend of Marshmallow, Linden, Sweet Almond, Mango and Aloe Vera to soothe, soften and hydrate the skin. This gentle Clarins sensitive skincare product is known to leave your complexion toned, moist and instantly refreshed. It’s great for dry or sensitive skin because it renews your skin’s natural radiance as it softens and soothes.

Another recommended sensitive face product is the Clarins Skin Beauty Repair Concentrate. You can wear this sensitive skin treatment oil beneath your moisturiser, as it absorbs easily into the skin without leaving behind a sticky or greasy residue. Made with Field Mint and Avocado extracts, this comforting oil effectively calms irritated and inflamed skin, reduces redness and rebuilds sensitive and damaged tissues.

The Santal Face Treatment Oil is another good sensitive skin product. It nourishes and alleviates skin with 100% plant extracts, leaving your complexion extra soft and supple, while protecting it against dehydration.
