Simply speaking, if your skin is prone to dryness, itchiness, breakouts or even rashes, then it passes the criteria for being sensitive. Easy to recognise, but not always easy to treat, it can be difficult to chose new and effective products when you have sensitive skin, with many formulas aggravating the problem further and leaving you feeling uncomfortable or even in pain. Though it's hard to prevent irritation caused by changes in the environment such as temperature changes, pollution or sun exposure, we can help support the skin's natural barrier to give it the best chance of staying healthy and problem-free in whatever conditions it faces. We have rounded up our favourite irritation-free moisturisers that will help alleviate dryness, redness and discomfort and help soothe and hydrate your skin to support the natural barrier and prevent sensitivity.


What to look for

If you have sensitive skin, look for soothing and hydrating, natural ingredients such as:

  • Hyaluronic Acid
  • Aloe Vera
  • Squalene
  • Green Tea
  • CBD
  • Oatmeal

What to avoid

Try and look for formulas with limited ingredients and steer clear of anything including those that are likely to aggravate the skin such as:

  • Alcohol
  • Fragrance
  • AHAs & BHAs (including Glycolic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Lactic Acid)
