How Do I Know
If My Skin
Is Sensitive ?

What are the signs of sensitive skin?

The term “sensitive skin” refers to skin which is prone to reactions, due to a number of internal and external factors. Variations in climate, temperature rises, cold, stress, pollution, the sun’s rays, shaving for men, using a beauty or make-up product with an unsuitable formula are all external stressors that can be the source of irritation and cause an immediate reaction on the skin.

Sensitive skin expresses its discomfort by showing signs of suffering on the face or body. Redness, excess sebum, tightness, itchiness, and breakouts are all reactions that a person may experience. Sensitive skin is not unique to one skin type - you may have oily skin, dry skin, or combination skin, and simply be prone to reactions.

It is important to learn how to recognise exacerbating factors which may cause a reaction. You can strengthen the lipid barrier with a suitable level of hydration, with suitable ingredients for its needs. Our special range of products for sensitive skin offers a cocoon of softness and protection.

01 How should I respond to reactions with sensitive skin?

How should I respond to reactions with sensitive skin?

Knowing how to recognise if your skin is sensitive enables you to provide the care it needs to stay healthy and anticipate crises.

The start of a flare up can be read on your face. Hotness, redness, tingling - if the appearance of the epidermis is altered, it’s likely that you have had a reaction to something. Your skin may even peel in particularly sensitive areas of the face.

Fragility is increased by environmental factors such as pollution, exposure to the sun without appropriate UV protection, the stress of a busy lifestyle, air conditioning, etc. You must take care to strengthen the skin barrier and rehydrate the face using moisturising products. The Hydra-Essentiel range of skincare boosts the skin's hydration thanks to organic leaf of life. Choose the texture that corresponds to your skin type.

Our Moisture Quenching Serum and Rich Cream respond to the needs of dehydrated skin. This phase rehydrates the skin, helping it to regain its radiance and beauty.  .

Sometimes external stressors occur repeatedly. Knowing how to recognise the situations that disturb the skin's sensitivity allows you to avoid them or to prepare the skin to better defend itself. Giving it the right care means strengthening its natural protection.

02 How should I adapt my beauty routine to sensitive skin?

Clarins Laboratories have developed skincare products based on the reactivity and needs of these types of skin.

Once or twice a week, exfoliate the face and neck by gently applying an exfoliating product and rinse with warm water. Apply the toning lotion that corresponds to your skin type. Soft and clean, your face is primed to soak up a moisturiser and benefit from all the active ingredients in an expert
anti-aging product

Men frequently suffer from sensitive skin, with common issues including razor burn and ingrown hairs.

The ClarinsMen shaving range offers skincare products to pamper closely shaven skin. You can create your own skincare routine to cleanse, shave and soothe sensitive skin using Clarins products.

04 How should I remove make-up from my sensitive skin?

How should I remove make-up from my sensitive skin?

Removing your make-up properly is the number-one step in your beauty routine. This needs to be done very gently, without rubbing or irritating it.

Having cleansed skin is an important step in the care and hygiene of sensitive skin. Total Cleansing Oil cleanses the face and sensitive eyes of all make-up residue. Impurities and pollution are eliminated in a single step. Micellar Water cleanses, soothes and leaves the skin with a feeling of freshness and comforting well-being.  

Tip: apply directly with the fingers to limit the rubbing on sensitive skin caused by cotton wool. Finish by applying Sensitive Skin Lotion.
