Finding the Best Morning Sensitive Skin Care Routine
Good beauty habits to adapt in the morning.
Sensitive skin can be affected by temperature, pollution, actually any stressors, according to Neutrogena researchers. Unlike normal skin, which can stand strong when exposed to minor irritants, sensitive skin has weaker defenses—meaning that care in the form of properly cleansing and moisturizing are essential to prepping, priming and protecting your sensitive skin for the day ahead.
So if your skin seems to react to almost everything — and you’ve tried all the solutions you can think of to keep it calm—you’ll want to consider these sensitive skin tips and product recommendations:
- Cleansing: Every skin care routine starts with a good cleanser and cleansing approach — everything that follows will depend on how clean your skin is, and how you care for the skin barrier. NeutrogenaⓇ Brand’s experts say that a gentle, pH-balanced cleanser is the key to cleaning sensitive skin without stripping it.
Keep the morning skin routine simple and use only products that are absolutely necessary. You can use a scrub if you want: but for the truly sensitive, the right cleanser alone should leave your skin clean and comfortable. Neutrogena ® Hydro Boost Cleanser is one option to consider.
- Moisturise: The best moisturiser for sensitive skin, is one that’s soothing and hydrating, but not too heavy. Conventional moisturisers can be greasy and sit on top of skin to make it feel soft and supple.
Neutrogena® Hydro Boost Gel-Cream is meant to create moisture from the outside in, and repair the skin barrier. As a result, NeutrogenaⓇ approach helps achieve deep hydration, to lock in longer lasting suppleness.
It’s also very mild and fragrance-free making it a good choice because many synthetic fragrance ingredients can be irritating for sensitive complexions.
