How to care for sensitive, irritable skin

Cosmetic products, climatic variations and seasonal allergies: sensitive skin reacts easily to external aggressions. To alleviate discomfort, use the proper techniques and choose the appropriate products.

Activities to banish

If you have sensitive skin, you should cut certain activities from your daily routine, such as:

  • Taking very hot showers
  • Going outside without protective cream
  • Exposing your skin to extreme weather conditions

Products to avoid

Certain products may aggravate delicate skin. We therefore suggest you avoid using them:

  • Exfoliants, peels and scrubs
  • Exfoliants that aggravate the skin
  • Scented and alcohol-based cosmetics
  • Certain essential oils
  • Anti-aging products
  • Deodorants containing aluminum salts

Products suited to you

Easily irritable skin should always be treated with products formulated for sensitive skin, which are made by most quality cosmetic brands.

  • Products containing oats help soothe and relieve dry, itchy skin. A-Derma products feature Rhealba oat. This exclusive plant-based active ingredient has anti-irritating, soothing, repairing, hydrating and anti-free radical properties.
