Having sensitive skin can be a struggle but it doesn’t have to be with the right products. Contrary to what some may expect, building a skincare routine for sensitive skin isn’t about owning a cabinet full of fancy products. It’s about making things less complicated and sticking to what works for you. The true challenge lies in finding which skincare products work best. That’s where we come in! Ahead, we put together a list of trusty skincare products that are made with the needs of sensitive skin in mind.
Regardless if you have sensitive skin or not, removing makeup is a crucial step no one should ever skip. There are a lot of makeup remover options on the market but some may be too harsh. It’s best to stick with a gentle one that’s effective but won’t dry your skin like Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Water (SGD27.23) which is formulated with a pH of around 5.5 — the ideal skin pH — to keep skin healthy.
When it comes to cleansers, those with sensitive skin should stay away from formulas with brash exfoliants and instead go the safe route with cleansers that have a simple ingredient list like DrGL Cleanser Sensitive (SGD138), a soap-free cleanser that soothes irritated skin while gently cleansing it.
A hypoallergenic lotion that will instantly soothe skin while working to strengthen the skin barrier in the long term is a must-have for sensitive skin. We’ve found the product that checks all these boxes. Meet d program Balance Care Lotion (SGD40.90) and d program Balance Care Emulsion (SGD 46.90)! They're free from any ingredient that can potentially irritate the skin like alcohol and fragrance. These can also control excess sebum while maintaining ample hydration.
Having a hard time finding a sunscreen that won’t irritate your skin? Some sunscreen products tend to be quite thick and can clog pores which can spell major trouble for sensitive skin. Get sun protection minus the heaviness with Anessa’s UV Mild range — Perfect UV Mild Milk (SGD41.90) and UV Mild Moisture Gel (SGD34.90). These sunscreens made for sensitive skin are comfortable and lightweight yet don't compromise on protection.
