Best natural skincare products for sensitive skin
Caring for sensitive skin it's not an easy task. It's quite hard to find appropriate skincare essentials to suit a delicate epidermis, but it's even harder to find the right products to soothe, smooth and supple skin that suffers from allergies or particular conditions, such as acne, rosacea, eczema and dermatitis.
We tried and tested fabulous skincare lotions, which are 100% natural, made with the finest ingredients, not tested on animals and specific for sensitive skin, to give you a safe experience when it comes down to choosing the right product for your beauty regime and avoid irritations.
Sensiderma Renew & Refine, Queen Cosmetics, £36.45, 45ml: a fantastic silky, light-weight moisturiser, which promises to reduce the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles without causing irritation to sensitive skin. It has a rich concentration of pure, active ingredients and is totally fragrance and colourings free. Renew & Refine also contains peptides, which are proteins that connect to the skin cells and teach them to behave like new cells, giving the skin a renewed look. I must say this product is fantastic, from the first application it left my skin feeling smooth and nourished and not only didn't affect my dermatitis, but has actually improved it and soothed it. Also my lines and wrinkles appeared immediately reduced.
Weleda, Sea Buckthorn Creamy Body Wash, £7.95, 200ml: Sea buckthorn is a plant that produces coral coloured, edible berries, which are rich in antioxidants, unsaturated fatty acids, provitamin A and vitamin E. These ingredients help protect the skin from UV radiation and free-radicals, associated with premature signs of ageing. The fruits have also antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, which added to eco-friendly cleansers from coconut and sugar make this body wash a fantastic, comprehensive product. The essential oils contained in this rich are easily absorbed and left my skin extremely soft and replenished, the natural fruity fragrance of oranges, mandarins and grapefruit revitalised my body and my spirit. Amazing.
REN Clean Bio Active Skincare, No.1 Purity Cleansing Balm, £23.00, 100ml: a luxurious cleansing balm that when applied with water transform into a rich milk, which thoroughly melts away dirt and even the most stubborn make-up residues. Enriched with Roman Chamomile and Pink Violet leaf extract to calm redness, Rose oil to relieve stress, Prebiotic Oligosaccharides to protect and act as a defensive barrier and Lecithin to retain moisture in the skin. The fragrance is lovely and unlike similar products it really cut through make-up grease, without the need of harsh chemicals, leaving my skin moisturised and soothed. The complementary muslin cloth gently exfoliated the surface, while cleansing magnificently, a must have product for a clearer complexion!
