If you have sensitive skin, you probably know just how difficult it can be to find the right skin care products for your skin type—and that includes face wash. While cleansing your skin should be part of your daily skin care routine, you may find that using a face wash in the morning and night can leave your complexion feeling irritated. So, what can you do? Here, learn how to determine if you have sensitive skin, how to care for this skin type, and find a face wash option for your sensitive skin from L’Oréal Paris.
Before diving into the routine that is right for sensitive skin, it’s important to get the deets on this skin type. How can you tell if you have sensitive skin? The best thing you can do to help determine whether or not you have sensitive skin is to pay attention to how your skin responds to the products in your skin care routine. For example, does your skin look red and feel irritated after using a skin care product formulated with fragrance, alcohol, or soap? Over-cleansing can also cause your skin to look red, so keep that in mind as you work your way through your skin care routine. (Read our guide to caring for sensitive skin.)
If you do have sensitive skin, there are a few things to consider. So, take the following tips into account.
1. Pick the right facial cleanser. The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) suggests avoiding skin care products formulated with fragrances, soap, or alcohol if you have sensitive skin. Read the label to check your face wash before trying a new one. Consider using a no-rinse cleansing option like micellar water in the morning and a rinse-off cleanser at night before bed.
2. Don’t skip out on moisturizer. The AAD advises using a cream-based moisturizer if you have sensitive skin. Apply it to damp skin to help lock in hydration. As with picking a facial cleanser, look for a moisturizer that’s formulated for your sensitive skin. Here’s how to find the best moisturizing routine for your age.
Ready to get your sensitive skin care routine in order? Start with finding the best face wash for your skin type. Like we told you earlier, it may be a good idea to avoid certain ingredients in your skin care products. Looking for a face wash to use on your sensitive skin? Try the L’Oréal Paris Go 360° Clean Deep Facial Cleanser for Sensitive Skin, which is fragrance-free and soap-free. This facial cleanser deeply cleanses skin and removes all traces of oil, dirt, and makeup. Plus, it comes with a Scrublet™, a super-soft, gentle flexible cleansing disk that can help you cleanse your skin more effectively than doing so by hand. To use the cleanser, pop out the Scrublet™ and slide it between your fingers, dampen the surface and pour cleanser onto it, then cleanse your skin and pop the Scrublet™ back in. And there you have it: Our best face wash option for sensitive skin!
Of course, using a face wash to cleanse your skin shouldn’t be the only step in your skin care routine. No beauty regimen is complete without using a moisturizer. If you have sensitive skin, look for one that’s specifically formulated for your skin type. The L’Oréal Paris Ideal Moisture™ Sensitive Skin Day Lotion SPF 25 is an oil-free, fragrance-free, non-comedogenic lotion that helps hydrate and soothe sensitive skin. The skin softening formula is infused with vitamin E and lightweight hydrating ingredients for moisture that feels clean and barely there. Plus, it’s also formulated with broad-spectrum sunscreen SPF 25. To use, smooth onto your face and neck until thoroughly absorbed.
