Know Your Skin

Understanding your skin is the first step in creating an effective skincare routine. Sensitive skin can manifest in various ways, such as redness, dryness, burning sensations, or acne-like breakouts. Take note of these reactions and try to identify the specific triggers so you can avoid them in the future.

Gentle Cleansing

Start your skincare routine with a mild and hydrating cleanser. Look for products that are free from harsh chemicals, fragrances, and alcohol. Opt for cleansers with a low pH, as they are less likely to disrupt your skin's natural barrier. Covey’s First of all Cleanser is packed with actives that mimic the compounds of healthy skin.  The rich, gel-to-foam cleanser moisturizes, tones, and protects, strengthening the skin barrier and leaving your face bright, hydrated, and happy.

Hydration is Key

Sensitive skin often struggles with moisture retention, leading to dryness and irritation. Opt for a fragrance-free, non-comedogenic moisturizer that contains squalane and hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture. Covey’s Last But Not Least Moisturizer’s whipped, pillowy formula cushions skin to soften and hydrate.

Sunscreen is Non-Negotiable

Protecting your skin from UV rays is crucial, especially for sensitive skin. Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher and make it a part of your daily routine. Covey’s Sun & Done Moisturizing SPF 50 Sunscreen is specifically formulated cater to sensitive skin.  The skin-loving, mineral-based formula is non-irritating, boosts moisture levels throughout wear, protects against free radicals, and strengthens the skin barrier, while leaving a healthy glow.

Skip the Fragrance

Fragrances, whether natural or synthetic, can trigger irritation in sensitive skin. When selecting products like serums, moisturizers, or spot treatments, always opt for fragrance-free options. 

Patch Test New Products

Before introducing a new product into your routine, perform a patch test on a small area of your skin. This will help you determine if the product causes any adverse reactions before applying it to your entire face. 

Patience and Consistency

Patience is key when caring for sensitive skin. Results may not be immediate, but with consistent use of gentle products, your skin will improve over time.

Sensitive skin requires extra care and attention, but with the right skincare routine and products, you can achieve a healthy, radiant complexion. Remember to consult a dermatologist if you have severe skin concerns or allergies. With a gentle and effective approach to skincare you will be well on your way to a happier and healthier complexion.
