For many of us, using heavy products on our skin just isn’t an option. Skin which is oily or sensitive won’t respond well to anything but the lightest touch and products which are too rich will feel uncomfortable and may not even fully absorb. Today, we’re taking a look at the products which are light and gentle and will be perfect for even the most sensitive of faces.
Keeping your skin clean is obviously important, but a lot of cleansers weigh heavily on delicate skin. This cleansing milk from Decleor contains sweet almond oil to help soften, smooth and bring comfort to the skin. It also contains essential oil of neroli to protect, repair and fight dehydration, to leave skin moisturised and radiant.
Moisturiser is often the product that people with a more delicate complexion find the hardest to use. Most moisturisers are oil-based but this one from Dermalogica is totally oil-free giving you optimal moisturisation with the lightest feel. Natural botanical astringents of lemon, watercress, burdock and ivy help to refine the skin while soothing extracts of lavender, mallow and cucumber provide deep hydration.
Balance can be difficult to find if you have combination skin, especially if it’s also delicate, but this cream from Elemis helps with exactly that. As well as offering moisturisation, it also helps regulate excessive oil production and improves the quality of blemish prone skin. As with most Elemis products, it also contains no sodium laureth sulphate, no parabens and no mineral oils.
It’s hard to find a non-greasy moisturiser which lasts all day, but this hydrating cream from Decleor is designed to last for a full 24 hours. Once applied to the skin, the face is replenished and revitalised and 85%of women noticed their skin was revitalised and softer after the very first application. It’s light to the tough, will melt into the skin immediately and won’t cause any irritation.
Having acne can make it SO difficult to find the right kind of moisturiser because the skin is already hyper-sensitised and oily treatments can really exacerbate existing issues. This means that acneic skin requires lightweight treatments to help find a good balance, which is where this Daytime Treatment from Dermalogica comes in. It’s light but powerful and contains ingredients which both hydrate the skin, control sebum production and even kill the bacteria responsible for spot formation.
