Do you often experience redness, dryness, flakiness, swelling or dullness with your skin? If so, you may be dealing with sensitive skin issues. Other symptoms can also include roughness, dullness and a burning or tingling sensation upon trying a new product. People with sensitive skin are more prone to skin irritations and allergies, which happens when the skin’s natural barrier is inflamed.
If you have sensitive skin, pay close attention to your skin each time you use a new product. Redness is a common indication that your skin is reacting negatively. To avoid breakouts and allergies, always test out a new product on your hand before applying it to your face. If redness or itchiness ensues, stop using the product immediately and consult a doctor.
Skincare products containing alcohol, fragrance and harsh chemicals are incompatible for sensitive skin as they often trigger itchiness, redness and other irritations. Strong chemicals will jeopardise the skin’s barrier, so steer clear of sulphates, parabens, artificial fragrances and dyes.
Clarins’ range of sensitive skincare products are purely plant-based, gentle and hypoallergenic, making them absolutely safe for sensitive skin.
