DOS

1: Cleansing
Use micellar water or a milk make-up remover.
Spray your face with a thermal spring water atomiser.Gently pat your face dry using a tissue.

2: Moisturising
Apply a special hypo-allergenic fragrance-free cream for sensitive skin, enriched with soothing agents (such as allantoin, bisabolol, propolis, aloe vera, provitamin B5, etc.) and containing sun protection.

Go for a richer texture in the winter months and a lighter, more fluid product for the summer.

3: Make-up
Choose make-up products that are specially-designed for sensitive skin, which are often rich in thermal spring water.

Organic make-up is also a good alternative since it is paraben, colourant and synthetic fragrance-free.

Mineral make-up is another option since it contains natural ingredients, such as titanium dioxide, a natural sun filter, zinc oxide, which conceals imperfections and redness, and mica, which controls skin reactions.

DON’TS

1: Cleaning
Avoid gels and cleansing oils that require rinsing with water. Limestone is a big no-no where sensitive skin is concerned.

Scrubs will be too abrasive for a delicate epidermis, so choose an exfoliant product containing fruit acids, for example, instead (a maximum of once a week).

2: Moisturising
Avoid changing your day cream constantly as sensitive skin is very often allergic.

3: Make-up
Avoid ‘long-lasting’ foundations which have the effect of suffocating sensitive skin.

Avoid vibrant blushers that will only serve to highlight the problem.

Do not use products that are past their best-before date.

Avoid using a latex sponge to apply your make-up as this may spark an allergy.
