best face washes for sensitive skin
What Is Sensitive Skin?
Sensitive or sensitised skin is characterised by acne, breakouts and redness, and skin that quickly and easily reacts to external elements and aggressors. Those with sensitive skin need to be extra cautious of not just the products they use, but also of allergies, lifestyle, and environment.
How to Choose a Face Wash for Sensitive Skin
Choosing the right face wash or facial cleanser for sensitive skin can be tricky but is very important. The cleanser needs to be gentle and yet clean deeply, so that no makeup, dirt, or grime is left behind, causing clogged pores and further eruptions. Soothing, natural ingredients such as lavender and mint can calm irritations and help even our sensitive skin.
Best Face Washes for Sensitive Skin
Dermalogica has cleansers and face washes that are specifically suited to sensitive skin, such as:
This gentle cleansing gel/cream is perfect for reactive skin. This pH-balanced, non-foaming cleanser helps calm and cool reactive, sensitised or overprocessed skin. It delicately fortifies the skin’s protective barrier, without leaving an irritating residue, and easily rinses away or wipes off, making it ideal for sensitive skin.
We strongly recommend you upgrade your skin care regimen to include double cleansing, and you can start that with the Precleanse. This deep-cleansing oil melts make-up and impurities from skin to give you ultra clean and healthy-looking skin. It thoroughly melts away layers of excess sebum (oil), sunscreen, waterproof make-up, environmental pollutants and residual products that build up on skin throughout the day.
