Sensitive Skin: Day and Night Routines

Everyone loves the summer, but those hot, sunny months can leave skin feeling dry and sensitive. Here are some tips for caring for your skin.

Sensitive Skin: Day and Night Routines

Too much sun exposure can leave skin looking dehydrated. So during these autumn months you may find your skin looking less radiant than it should, especially if you’ve been travelling in hot climates, or have spent time outdoors or with the kids. This makes autumn a good time to ramp up your skincare regime.

If your post-summer skin needs attention, what sort of products should you be looking at? Here are some answers…

Daytime skincare

Cleansing is the first step to better skin. Those with dry or sensitive complexions should plump for a gentle product designed to reduce sensitivity. This will remove make-up and impurities, leaving the skin clean and ready for moisturising. Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser can soothe those feelings of discomfort, tightness and dryness.

At this time of year, you may find you need a more intense daily moisturiser to nourish your skin. This will help to soothe and comfort any dryness, as well as getting rid of any uncomfortable sensations. Moisturising every morning, after cleansing and toning, with Nutritic Intense Moisturising Cream will give the nourishing care needed to help reinforce the skin’s barrier. 
And don’t neglect the sensitive area around the eyes. It’s worth using a hydrating eye gel like Hydraphase Intense Eyes 
to reduce any puffiness and smooth the appearance of fine lines caused by dehydration.

Night-time Skincare

Mornings are often busy and rushed – often it’s easier to find 10 minutes in the evening to apply an intense masque that will soothe and rehydrate sensitive skin. A masque will also leave the skin feeling softer and more supple. The Hydraphase Intense Masque contains active ingredients including Hyaluronic Acid fragments and La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water. 
If your skin is irritated, it’s a good idea to use a gentle cleanser, like Micellar Solution
This will soothe and purify delicate skin. 

After cleansing and toning, it’s worth using a rich moisturising cream in the evenings. La Roche-Posay’sNutritic Intense Rich Moisturising Cream will soothe and hydrate very sensitive skin, as well as nourishing the skin and get rid of any uncomfortable feelings of tightness.
