Having sensitive skin can be a real pain when it comes to finding a skincare routine that works for you. Something I find particularly important is to make sure I remove all of my makeup gently but throughly. Any residue can cause my skin to breakout in spots or in a rash.
My number one tip for really sensitive skin days is to use the Jane Iredale Magic Mitt. I have been using one of these mitts since I was around 12 years old (obviously replacing it regularly) and there is nothing more gentle. You simply use warm water with it so it eliminates the need to use products which is why I think it’s great for sensitive skin. It does remove all makeup, even mascara, that being said I do like to do a second cleanse just to make sure. I use this cloth to wash my face every morning and night and couldn’t be without it.
One of my favourite sensitive skin cleansers which throughly removes makeup is Trilogy’s Make-Up Be Gone Cleansing Balm. Cleansing balms melt away your makeup without drying out your skin. Trilogy’s balm has a blend of natural ingredients and is also cruelty free. It feels so luxurious on the skin.
The Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser by Pai has got to be one of my all time favourite cleansers, it is super gentle, feels silky soft and amazing on the skin while leaving your face clean but not stripped of its natural oils. This is one of the few cleansers I feel 100% safe using on my eyes as it truly doesn’t cause any irritation.
Finally the rechargeable Sensee Silicone Cleansing Device is the perfect partner for my Pai Cleanser. Similar to the Foreo Luna but considerably cheaper this has been a staple in my skincare routine for months. You can you any cleanser with it and simply use the device to massage the cleanser into your face. It has different vibration settings so it’s not too harsh for sensitive skin. It also has a massage function on the back which you can use when applying your moisturiser. If you haven’t tried this device I highly recommend giving it a go, you’ll be amazed at how deeply but gently it cleans your skin!
