Sensitive skin is a skin type that is prone to irritation and inflammation due to hyper-reactive nature of the skin.

The reactions are usually triggered by sun exposure or contact with chemicals like dyes, alcohols, fragrances, etc. which are commonly found in skin care products. The reactions could be in the form of redness, swelling, rashes and acne and are typically characterized with a stinging, itching and burning sensation.

Sensitive skin is caused by a number of skin disorders like contact dermatitis, rosacea and eczema. People with this skin type usually have extremely dry and flaky skin that is prone to injury.

Sensitive skin care is tricky and requires immense care and attention. In extreme cases, it may require medical aid too.

Which ingredients are good for sensitive skin?

Organic, plant-based ingredients are the best for sensitive skin as they are free of skin-drying alcohols and chemicals like parabens, synthetic fragrances and petrochemicals. They can be used in the long term without the risk of side effects that are common to synthetic chemicals used in over-the-counter products.

For sensitive skin care, mild and gentle ingredients that soothe the skin and calm irritations are the best. Also suitable are anti-inflammatories as they reduce allergic reactions like redness, swelling and itching.

Some of the calming ingredients to look for in products for sensitive skin are chamomile oil, aloe vera, shea butter, clary sage oil, rose water, argan oil, calendula oil and jojoba oil. Apart from these, there a number of other natural oils that offer protection and nourishment and are well-suited for sensitive skin.

What is the best skin care routine for sensitive skin?

Sensitive skin should be treated specifically with products for sensitive skin. These are products that not only avoid triggering ingredients but also include those that calm irritations and soothe the skin.

The best skincare for sensitive skin is one that also focuses on speeding up the skin’s healing and recovery process. It aims at minimizing post-inflammation hyperpigmentation and reversing premature skin aging which are also common problems in people with sensitive skin.

    • Antiseptic to control bacterial overgrowth
    • Balances sebum production for less oily skin
    • Anti-inflammatory and sedative to calm acne redness
    • Astringent properties to tighten your pores

    ROSE WATER is a water retention toner (for Dry Skin)

  • FACIAL PAPER is a mask to help better absorption of liquid skincare

    BEST WATER is the mineral water for your skin

    • This toner instantly calms down irritated, chapped skin
    • Alcohol-free
    • This toner speeds up healing from ACNE, pimples, burns, and scrapes

    Why are minerals important for our skin?

    • minerals are essential to healthy skin function and cell repair
    • normally present in perspiration, minerals nourish the microbiome (skin flora) that is produced at the skin’s sebum layer, which holds moisture in and blocks dirt out
    • washing can remove these precious minerals, so the best thing you can do for your skin is to replace them directly
    • BEST WATER does just that, with a mineral complex that closely resembles nature’s own formula
    • when skin loses softness through the processes of aging, the pores harden and appear larger. BEST WATER counteracts this tension, restoring the skin’s youthful elasticity and allowing pores to shrink naturally. The result is a soft, hydrated and fine texture complexion
