The signs of sensitive skin
One of the most common symptoms of sensitive skin is skin that easily flushes or breaks out in bumps and rashes. While this could simply be a reaction to specific ingredients that you’re using topically, it could be due to a genetic condition like rosacea or eczema. Do you frequently find that skincare, makeup, or SPF that you are using stings your skin? This is a bad reaction that your skin is having to particular products and ingredients. It’s important to note that skin that is sensitive to the sun can also be classed as being sensitive. If your skin is bright red and flushed after stepping out into the UV rays, then it is vital that you apply broad-spectrum sunscreen daily.
If you constantly suffer from dry patches, scaling and flaking or tight, itchy skin, this also indicates sensitivity. We recommend avoiding over washing with hot water, as well as over-exfoliating, as this can cause more aggravation, so try to use gentle cream cleansers and follow with a hydrating moisturiser. If you are suffering from any of these symptoms, we can help!
When it comes to finding the best skincare products for sensitive skin, our range is both effective and gentle on even the most sensitive of skin. Combining soothing botanical extracts with hardworking actives, each formula will help you achieve calmer skin from the inside out.

Everyone has different causes of sensitive skin, and it’s important that you seek help from a professional if you have extremely severe or painful symptoms. Otherwise, be sure to choose gentle and soothing products packed with natural antioxidants, vitamins, and oils. Choose designed specifically to target sensitive skin types and avoid heavily fragranced formulas.
How do you take care of sensitive skin?
Just because you have sensitive skin, it doesn’t mean that you should skip certain steps from your skincare regime. Be sure to cleanse, tone, and use serums and oils packed with natural ingredients. It’s important that you moisturise the skin and protect it with SPF daily. Don’t overload your skin with excessive products all at once and introduce them naturally to avoid potential irritation.
What are the symptoms of sensitive skin?
Sensitive skin is prone to inflammation and there are many symptoms of sensitive skin since everyone is different. Look out for particularly reactive skin, redness, dryness, and itching, and scaling. If you’re prone to breakouts, rashes and you burn extremely easily, you are likely to have sensitive skin. While you might just have reactive skin, you could be dealing with a genetic condition like eczema or rosacea.
Why is my skin so sensitive?

Dry, weakened, and injured skin that is unable to protect nerve endings may lead to skin reactions such as stinging and burning too. Seek professional help to determine skin conditions.
