What's the best routine for sensitive skin?

Tightness, discomfort, tingling or prickling sensations… Sensitive skin is not so much a skin type as a skin condition. Easily irritated, hypersensitive skin may react to almost anything, and needs to be treated with the greatest care in order to calm it down. Absolution has a skincare routine that's perfect for sensitive skin!

The complete routine for sensitive skin

hy do some people have more sensitive skin than others?

While sensitive skin may be caused by many different factors, all people with sensitive skin have one thing in common: their skin barrier is weakened and permeable. Regardless of whether this situation is temporary or long lasting, it means that the skin can no longer fully perform its naturally protective role. Consequently, its resistance to environmental aggressors (pollution, UV rays, changes in temperature, cigarette smoke, hard water, etc.) is considerably weakened. Hypersensitive skin may also react to unsuitable cosmetic products, perceiving them as a form of chemical attack

Some people, however, are born with hypersensitive skin. In this particular case, the cause is internal. Conditions such as eczema and rosacea, for example, can increase skin dryness and make the skin more reactive.

Absolution has developed several products that are specially formulated to meet the specific needs of sensitive skin. From concentrated serums to moisturizers and eye creams, we offer solutions that work well with sensitive skin and help to boost its immune system.

Gently cleanse

If you're someone who likes to wear makeup every day, then it's important that you remove it very gently and carefully! La Crème Douce Démaquillante is perfect for removing makeup and impurities without being harsh on the skin. In the evening, cleanse with Le Nettoyant Pureté. Enriched with Oat, this cleansing gel purifies the skin while relieving tightness and irritation.

In the morning, it's best to avoid cleaning your skin with water, especially if your water is very hard. Instead, wake up your face with La Brume Systémique. A few sprays are enough to nourish, hydrate and invigorate your skin – and get your day off to a good start!

Use products that protect sensitive skin

The next step in your sensitive skin routine is to protect against environmental aggressors. In the morning, reach for our deeply moisturizing and soothing serum, Le Sérum Anti-Soif

Apply before your day cream or combine with La Crème Riche to reap all the benefits of a cream specially formulated for sensitive skin. As for the eye area, remember that this is the most fragile part of the face, so again, you need to give it lots of special, gentle care! It's always best to use a product that's designed specifically for the eye area, such as our La Crème Réparatrice Regard.

Once or twice a week, incorporate a face mask into your evening skincare routine. Le Masque Velours Repulpant intense plumping mask is ideal for sensitive skin, and can be left on overnight in place of your night cream. To enhance its effects, mix with our multi-purpose face oil, Addiction, made with 27 organic botanical and essential oils.
