1. Your moisturiser
At the heart of any good skin care routine is a great moisturiser. However, for sensitive skin types, it can be hard to find one that doesn’t make matters worse. Less is often more when it comes to your moisturiser; this includes paying special attention to what’s *not* in the formula. La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra is a dermatologically recommended moisturiser that’s formulated with minimal ingredients to reduce the risk of irritation, and is free from nasties like fragrances, alcohol and lanolin.
2. Your eye cream
The skin around your eyes is ultra-thin and sensitive, so it’s not uncommon for eye creams to leave you with puffy, red eyes, rather than the youthful crow’s feet-free results that the product promised. La Roche-Posay’s Toleriane Ultra Eye Contour is formulated for sensitive skin so it’s gentle, but it also contains hardworking (but non-irritating) active ingredients like Neurosensine™ and niacinamide to plump and nourish.
3. Your sunscreen
For all the great things sunscreens do - protecting against sun damage, skin cancer and premature ageing - it can also wreak havoc on sensitive and allergy-prone skin. This is one of the most important products in your skin care line-up that you never want to skip, so you need to find one that you (and your skin) love so you will actually want to use it. A hypoallergenic formula is also key. Try La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Ultra-Light Fluid Sunscreen SPF50+ - it gets bonus points for wearing so well under makeup.
