Sensitive skin 101: The best skin care routine for sensitive skin

Sensitive skin 101: The best skin care routine for sensitive skin

Do you have sensitive, delicate or reactive skin? It’s time to say goodbye to “nothing” formulas, calming-only formulas and overhyped ingredients. Bioelements sensitive skin innovations are better than basic – they’re clinically calm and incredibly strong. Keep reading to learn more about sensitized skin and our barrier reparative innovations.

 

What is sensitive skin?

Sensitive, sensitized, irritable or intolerant skin is a weakened and damaged hydrolipidic barrier and can present these signs:

  • Redness
  • Dryness
  • Flakiness
  • Rosacea
  • UV Damage
  • Irritation
  • Stinging
  • Flushing
  • Visible capillaries
  • Environmental stress
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis

 

There are so many different variables that can damage your skin’s natural barriers – the environment, harsh ingredients, picking at your skin, genetics and more. Unfortunately chronic sensitivity is extremely common – over 40% of people say they have sensitive skin*. Typical sensitive skin care products just don’t tackle the problem adequately.

 

The Bioelements solution

For barrier repair and skin sensitivity signs, the old-school approach has been to formulate without known irritating ingredients (like dyes, fragrance, phthalates, etc). So what you're left with doesn't irritate skin – but it doesn't do much of anything for the skin. Our new formulas are the best of both worlds: incredibly calming, while actively advocating for a stronger barrier.

We know that what's in the formula is just as important as what is not in it. These new formulas are free of the unnecessary – as are all of Bioelements formulas. But, it’s also free of the top 7 known allergens:

  • No peanuts
  • No wheat
  • No eggs
  • No shellfish
  • No milk
  • No soybeans
  • No tree nuts.

And as always, all of our formulas are free of all known irritants, like sulfates, phthalates, mineral oil, parabens, fragrance and more. Meet the latest barrier reparative innovations:

Who it’s for

These four products are for multiple types of sensitivity:

CHRONIC sensitivities: the true "sensitive" skin type; skin easily gets red, irritated, flushed, reactive.

                               

ACUTE sensitization: “event”-based redness due to aggressive at-home products, peels, environmental assault/UV, product misuse and clinical treatments.

 

PREEMPTIVE action: these formulas are ideal for preventative care – anyone who wants to ensure the skin barrier remains strong in order to avoid future sensitization and age signs.
