Sensitive Skin

Inflammation, Redness & Irritation

Sensitive skin is prone to irritation. Your skin is dry and flaky and gets itchy easily. It can worsen to redness, swelling and rashes, with stinging and burning sensations.

To treat your sensitive skin:

  • Firstly, prevent activating your sensitivity. Avoid ingredients like chemicals, alcohols, parabens, etc. which are commonly found in skincare products. Also, shield yourself from environmental factors like UV, pollutants and air-con dryness.

  • Secondly, calm your skin down. Pacified skin can absorb nourishment better, and heal faster.
  • Thirdly, use good quality organic nutrients to help your healing.

What is a good skincare routine for acne-prone skin?

Carefully considering the above, BLACK PAINT has prepared the following regimen organized in 4 steps to pacify, heal and protect your sensitive skin.



The cleanser for your sensitive skin must:

  • Contain ingredients that are mild enough to avoid irritating your skin, but still strong enough for thorough cleansing. Proper cleansing is needed to get rid of stimulants, e.g. dirt, makeup, pollutants that attach themselves to your skin during the day.
  • Contain pacifying ingredients to calm you skin down.
  • Be free from alcohol and parabens because they further damage your skin layer

What makes Probiotics Sensitive Skin Soap special?

With sensitive skin, you absolutely need an alcohol-free toner. Alcohol erodes your already delicate skin layer. It also vaporizes away your moisture, and worsens your dryness and itch.

Besides, you need a gentle toner that excludes harsh ingredients, and is still capable of performing these specific functions necessary for sensitive skin:

  • Neutralize any trace of cleanser left on you, because your sensitive skin can be irritated by even a tiny bit of leftover.
  • Return your skin to its normal pH of 5.5 after cleansing, and calm your skin down, preparing it for nourishment in step 3.
  • Supply your skin with minerals for skin repair.

  • - Dust and pollutants

Sun-rays contain heat and UV radiation. Sensitive skin suffers more prominent effects from them. In the short term, they trigger outbreaks. In the long term, they speed up aging effects like pigmentation and wrinkles. Your sensitive skin must be treated with dedicated protection.

Refusing to give up, she searched for a cure from modern science to traditional remedies, across affluent countries to undeveloped tribes. Her enormous effort not only rewarded her the knowledge to cure her daughter, but solutions to everyday skin concerns. Read our founder’s full story here.
