Sensitive skin got you down? If you’re blotchy or just plain dry your skin might need a little additional attention. Look no further—the following eight hacks can help make caring for a sensitive complexion easier.

Sensitive Skin Hack #1: Pay Attention to Product Labels

When you have sensitive skin, it’s important to read product labels before putting anything on your face. According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), those with sensitive skin should avoid products that contain fragrances, soap, or alcohol. The AAD states that acids may also be irritating to sensitive skin. So, the next time you’re out shopping for new skin care products, don’t buy anything until you’ve looked over the ingredient list!

Sensitive Skin Hack #2: Test New Products

Before diving into a new beauty routine, patch test any unfamiliar products. A quick trial run can help determine if you might experience any potential discomfort. Apply a small amount of product to your wrist and pay attention to how your skin responds.

Sensitive Skin Care Hack #3: Use a Gentle Cleanser Once a Day

According to the AAD, washing your face once a day should be enough to keep your sensitive skin clean (unless you’re wearing makeup, in which case it’s important to cleanse before going to bed). And you should avoid over-exfoliating, since this can cause further irritation. The L’Oréal Paris Go 360 Clean Deep Facial Cleanser for Sensitive Skin is a fragrance-free, soap-free cleanser that helps deeply cleanse sensitive skin without over-drying it. To use, pop out the included Scrublet™, dampen the surface and pour some cleanser onto it, then cleanse your face and pop the Scrublet™ back in.

Sensitive Skin Care Hack #4: Wash Up in Lukewarm Water

Attention all those with sensitive skin: It’s time to turn down the dial the next time you’re in the shower! Super-hot water can strip your skin of essential moisture, so bathe in lukewarm temps from now on—your sensitive skin will thank you!

Sensitive Skin Care Hack #5: Protect Your Skin from the Sun

Caring for sensitive skin and sun protection go hand in hand. Yes, everyone—regardless of skin type—should wear broad-spectrum sunscreen daily. That’s because spending prolonged periods of time in the sun without protection can lead to damage. Plus, the sun can burn you—so if you have sensitive skin that’s easily irritated, it’s even more important to keep it protected. The L’Oréal Paris Ideal Moisture™ Sensitive Skin Day Lotion SPF 25 is an oil-free, fragrance-free moisturizer that can help hydrate and soothe sensitive skin. It’s also formulated with broad-spectrum SPF. Smooth it gently onto your face and neck until thoroughly absorbed.

Sensitive Skin Care Hack #6: Use Micellar Water When You’re on the Go

Micellar water is a gentle, no-rinse cleansing option that you should definitely give a chance if you have sensitive skin. The L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Dry Skin hydrates and soothes. Free of oil, soap, and alcohol, it’s suitable for sensitive skin. Just saturate a cotton pad with the micellar water and wipe the pad across your face. Since micellar water doesn’t require any rinsing, it make a great pick for the gym and traveling. No sink nearby? No problem!

Sensitive Skin Care Hack #7: Neutralize Redness with Green Concealer

All aboard the color correcting concealer trend! Color correction involves using a concealer that’s a shade opposite your skin concern on the color wheel. That means that green concealer can help neutralize the look of redness. The L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Color Correcting Kit comes with four pastel concealer shades, including green. Apply it to any necessary areas of your face before moving on with the rest of your makeup routine.

Sensitive Skin Care Hack #8: Swap Out Foundation for BB Cream

Who needs foundation when you can use a product that will take care of all your complexion needs in one step? The L’Oréal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream Anti-Redness is formulated with color-transforming pigments infused in an ultra-light lotion to help counteract redness. Because no one has to know you have sensitive skin unless you want them to!
