When it comes to skincare products, some of us can’t help but feel excited about getting first dibs on the latest beauty trends. However, for those with sensitive skin types, it is not as easy to give in to these temptations as these products might cause irritation.

With that being said, it does not mean it is impossible for them to purchase these limited items. Instead, they just need to be more mindful of the skincare ingredients these products contain.

Here are some skincare products to avoid for sensitive skin types:

1) Those containing Alcohol and fragrance

This is a well-known fact both alcohol and synthetic fragrance cause great irritation to the skin.

The use of alcohol will result in reducing the skin’s moisture levels while applying fragrance scented products will weaken the inner layers of the skin.

2) Chemical sunscreen

While it is important to apply sunscreen, make sure it is the right fit for you! Be wary of the following chemical ingredients: Avobenzone, octinoxate and oxybenzone, as they might develop skin issues. Instead, opt-out of chemical sunscreen for a physical or mineral formula that is gentle to the skin!

Check out UMBRELLA UV-Protection & Light-Diffusing Cream! Containing a mega-dose of SPF 70, this water-resistant matte base sunscreen is perfect for sensitive skin types for its chemical-free formula. 

Since we have stated out the skincare products to avoid, here are some skincare ingredients to look out for:

1) Chamomile extract

Chamomile is great for soothing the mind and skin, thanks to its gentle properties.

Meet Warm Vanilla Rose Vanilla Cream Cleanser! Formulated with a nice blend of chamomile extract, gentle seaweed and sugar based exfoliants, it cleanses and gives the skin a healthy shine while keeping the complexion hydrated.

2) Bisabolol

When this plant extract is applied to the skin, it provides soothing and anti-inflammatory effects.

Featuring SW1 Diamond Fullerene Night Essence! With Bisabolol as one of its key ingredients, it rejuvenates and replenishes the skin’s hydration level without clogging the pores. This, in turn, gives the complexion a radiant and youthful glow.
