SENSITIVE SKIN

This is not a skin type. It is a condition that can be present in any of the four skin types.

Typically it is usually associated with the drier skin types. This is because the skin has little or no natural protection which is normally provided by serum (skins natural oily lubricant). This leaves the skin vulnerable to irritants which can be many and varied the most common being environmental and product ingredients. This is why the industry creates a specific range for Sensitive Skin – which primarily is the same products without the nastier, cheap ingredients e.g. lanolin, mineral oil, and reduced or free from known potential irritants such as fragrance.

However we also have a totally different type of skin sensitivity at the other end of the skin type spectrum. If the skin is oily and has developed into its advanced stage of associated problems e.g. pus filled spots, or of there is Acne Vulgaris, then there is often severe sensitivity. The skin will typically look very angry, red and inflamed and it is often too sensitive to be touched. Whilst it is not primarily the environment or products that have caused the sensitivity it is crucial that the correct products are used that not only don’t cause further irritation problems, but they actively deliver ingredients that will ease the symptoms whilst treating and improving this skin condition.

So – we have two extremes and types of sensitivity in totally different skin types.

Love Your Skin provides uncomplicated, quality products that are suitable for all sensitivities. Our range is free of irritants. Instead we use gentle, yet potent natural actives to achieve results.

Cleanser - For dry skin sensitivity, we recommend the Complete Cleansing Lotion as this will add lubrication to this non-greasy skin.  The oilier skin sensitivity will probably prefer the Complete Cleansing Water or the Cleanse & Smooth Exfoliating Wash – as these are both oil-free cleansing products.

Exfoliator - Our exfoliating wash is perfect to use every day on both skin type sensitivities as it is ph balanced and will not dry out either skin type but if it is not used as the daily cleanser then the Cleanse & Smooth Exfoliating Wash should be used at least twice every week to help exfoliate the dry surface dead skin cells and keep the surface of the skin in optimum health.

Spritz/Tone - Use gentle refreshing and cooling Floral Hydrating Spritzer in place of a toner and as a coolant and refresher whenever need. All actives in this product are ideal for the issues of both dry and oily sensitive skin types.

Moisturise & Treat - The Intensive Hydra-gel Moisturiser should be used twice daily on any sensitive condition.The most appropriate serums are the Calming & Soothing to reduce sensitivity and redness in the dry skin sensitivity.

The oily skin sensitivity should initially use a blend of the Purifying & Balancing and the Calming and Soothing serums. As the skin calms and the condition improves the blend can then include the Smoothing & Retexturising serum as this will aid healing and reduce scarring.

Mask - Apply a layer of Collagen Moisturising Gel as a non-setting mask at least twice a week to any skin sensitivity – including temporary sensitivity – such as that from over exposure to sun - as it will assist in boosting the hydration of the skin, whilst cooling, calming and soothing.
