We know that finding the best skincare routine for your sensitive skin can be hard. Everyone’s skin is different, and what works best for someone may not work for you. At Innoxa we want to change that. To help you navigate the world of skincare, we’ve put together some simple, sensitive skincare routine steps, easy to implement in your everyday beauty routine.
What is sensitive skin?
Before starting a new skincare routine you will want to make sure it is suitable for your skin type to ensure you get the best results. If you find your skin getting tight, tingly or experience burning sensations after using skincare products, it is likely you have sensitive skin. Other signs to look out for include sudden appearance of rashes or redness as people with this kind of skin are often more prone to inflammation and irritation. Lucky for you, our skincare routine can help you avoid these uncomfortable situations.
The Best Skincare Routine For Sensitive Skin
Step 1 : Cleanse
Every skincare routine should begin with a good cleanser. Many people with sensitive skin think they need to skip this skincare step as they are often left with a red blotchy face after using their current cleanser. But if you miss this then you are allowing impurities like dirt, pollution and makeup to build up, causing outbreaks and increasing the chance of a reaction. Opt for a gentle formula like Innoxa’s Super Sensitive Skin Cleansing Milk for a deep cleanse whilst soothing delicate skin.
It is recommended to cleanse twice a day, once in the morning and once at night to reap the full benefits. Our top tip is if you often tingle after using a cleanser try rinsing your face with warm water rather hot and pat the skin dry with a soft face towel to prevent irritation.
Step 2: Serum
Serums are the secret weapon for every beauty guru. Their highly concentrated formulas will be absorbed by troubled skin and will give visible results in a short amount of time. Whether you’re also wanting to target dullness, fine lines or acne - finding a serum that works for you is essential. For those wanting to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, Innoxa’s Super Sensitive Shield helps prevent signs of ageing whilst protecting the skin from UV damage.
Step 3: Moisturise
Once your skin has absorbed the magic serum, the next step in your sensitive skin routine will be to reach for a dermatologically tested moisturiser like Innoxa’s Super Sensitive Day + Night Cream. Every sensitive skin sufferer knows the heavenly feeling of a cool moisturiser on your skin. This is because keeping sensitive skin well hydrated reduces the risk of irritation. Created for sensitive skin types, Innoxa’s moisturiser is designed to be used both day and night to deliver essential moisture and nutrients to the skin.
Step 4: Sunscreen
Arguably the most crucial step in your sensitive skincare routine. Applying sunscreen is essential to provide protection from UV Rays. It is best to choose a sunscreen which is fragrance free and has no harsh chemicals as sensitive skin may react badly to some products.
Your skincare routine order is important. Always apply sunscreen as the final step in your skincare routine for protection.
Step 5: Relax
See this as an official sign to relax. This is important to you both mentally and physically. Stress can heighten your body and skin sensitivity causing it to be more reactive. When you are stressed your body releases hormones like cortisol that can cause skin issues. So give yourself time to slow down, treat yourself to your favourite face mask and settle in for a pamper session.
When choosing products for your new routine avoid those with fragrance, harsh exfoliants and alcohol as these are likely to irritate. All of Innoxa’s products are suitable for sensitive skin.
