Finding the right skincare routine is fun, taxing, full of trials and errors, surprises and let-downs. For sensitive skin it can be even harder feeling like there are limitations on which products to use. Luckily Korean skincare offers many products suited for sensitive skin so you can build your sensitive skin care routine easily. Keep in mind everyone's skin is different and all the products mentioned may not be suited for you but you'll get a general sense of products that may work. For now, I'll just go over a few products, guidelines, and a general routine.
Sometimes the right way to start is to just take a moment and press the brakes on loading up on all the products on your wish list (don't worry that snail essence isn't going anywhere) and if you're feeling overwhelmed by all the unbelievably gorgeous skincare products out there, then it's okay to take a breather and keep it simple. Sticking to 3 basic steps and building up from there is perfectly fine. You should always feel comfortable with the products you are buying and feel confident about your skin decisions. Let's take a moment and go through these 3 simple steps together.
Step 1: Water Based Cleanser.
Used to clean your face before applying your next steps.
Step 2: Moisturizer
Used to provide hydration and calm skin.
Step 3: Sunblock
Absorbs or reflects some of the sun UV rays, which provides protection to your skin.
Remember we are taking baby steps here, you have to learn how to crawl before you take those 10 steps. Some great beginner sensitive skin products are:
A lightly scented gel cleanser, that does not foam so much. PH of 5.5; a gentle cleanser best suited for oily/acne prone skin.
Purito - Defence Barrier Ph Cleanser
A gentle gel cleanser that won’t dry you out, great for combination skin. Has a stronger scent, and contains Tea Tree.
