Skin care ingredients for sensitive skin
19 January 2022 by Izabela Kuzmanovic
Clients with sensitive skin need to maintain a consistent skin care routine to keep their skin clear and free from irritations. Their sensitive skin is usually thin and prone to dryness, especially in autumn and winter with winds and often extreme temperature changes. So it doesn't take much to irritate it: just a few days of stress, a change in diet, washing with unsuitable products or environmental pollution can make skin irritable and red.
Cosmetic ingredients with anti-inflammatory properties to enhance the skin’s lipid barrier should be used on sensitive skin. Suitable ingredients are:
Due to its calming effect, hyaluronic acid is very gentle and helpful for all skin types, even the most sensitive, redness-prone skin.
Vitamin E soothes sensitive skin and provides a protective barrier.
Shea butter is very gentle on sensitive skin and can help to calm red and irritated skin quickly.
Panthenol works as a skin protectant that can reduce itchiness and irritation of the skin.
Defensil®-Plus protects and replenishes the damaged skin barrier and it can also help to reduce allergic skin reactions.
Squalane has a gentle effect on the skin as it mimics the skins’ natural oils, thus helping to bring skin back into balance.
These special ingredients can be found in the following Derma SR products:
- Gentle Cream Cleanser
- Pure Hyaluronic Essence & Anti-Aging Serum
- Blemish Control Essence & Blemish Control Serum
- Sensitive Repair Cream
- Purifying Silver Mask
- Sensitive SOS Mask
Tip: The combination of a regular and professional Derma SR treatment at the beauty institute and special home care routine can help to keep sensitive skin calm, hydrated and smooth.
