Skin Sensitivity/Skin Redness

Why do I have skin sensitivity or redness?

Skin can get angry, irritated, red or intolerant for many reasons: the environment, harsh ingredients, over-exfoliations, UV exposure, normal aging… or no reason at all! 

When sensitive skin is irritated, invisible inflammation sets in, encouraging the production of free radical that cause wrinkles and skin-aging signs.

Why do I have skin sensitivity or redness?

Treat skin sensitivity or redness: Choose calming olive oil

Look for an olive oil-based cleanser – olive oil is loaded with polyphenols, which are natural antioxidants that help fight free radicals as they soothe sensitive skin.  

Bioelements Sensitive Skin Cleanser will calm complexions that get upset, irritated, red, or tight. When mixed with water, its olive oil, kissi and safflower seed oil formula converts to a gentle foam that gets easily washed off. Plus, it’s dermatologist and clinically tested to be non-irritating, and has no artificial colorants, synthetic fragrance, parabens, DEA, phthalates or harsh irritants.

Go easy on the eyes

Sensitive eyes need extra TLC. The skin around the eyes is the thinnest on the body, and for those with sensitive skin, this area can get extra irritated and lined by harsh formulas. 

Choose Calmitude® Delicate Skin Eye Gel to defend against eye irritants, increase the feel of firmness, and smooth texture – all in a soothing, hydrating formula created for sensitive skin. And don't forget the makeup remover: Gentle Creme Eye Makeup Remover will do away with the most stubborn mascara and clingy concealer – without annoying or stinging skin.

Treat skin sensitivity or redness: Strengthen with hydration

If sensitive skin gets dehydrated, it will become even more irritated, red and delicate. Hydration is essential to strengthen skin’s barrier layer, so it can defend against irritants and stay calm.

Add vital hydration from multiple angles: spritz a moisture-infusing toner after cleansing like Calmitude® Hydrating Solution; add a moisturizer that reduces visible irritation like Calmitude® Sensitive Skin Moisturizer; and boost the efficiency of moisturizer with a pump of Moisture x10 – its hyaluronic acid formula will bind water to your sensitive skin.
