SkinCeuticals and sensitive skin go hand-in-hand. According to a 2019 study published in the Frontiers in Medicine journal, 60 to 70 percent of women and 50 to 60 percent of men report having some degree of sensitive skin.

This can translate to itching, burning, tightness, and dryness—and these symptoms can be due to genetics, age, hormones, environmental factors, and more.

Yet regardless of the cause, the right skincare regimen can help keep your skin calm and comfortable while preventing skin damage, correcting visible age-related changes, and protecting the skin from further damage.

An effective regimen for any skin type includes a cleanser, topical antioxidant, targeted treatment, hydration, and sun protection. The ultimate goal is to meet your skin’s unique needs, support its health and provide a shield against environmental aggressors. As a leader in skincare science, SkinCeuticals offers a wide array of products that are safe and suitable for sensitive skin, and here’s the ultimate regimen for happy, healthy skin.

Step 1 (AM/PM): Soothing Cleanser

A cleanser that effectively removes excess oil, dirt, makeup and other debris doesn’t have to be harsh on the skin. This soap-free cleansing foam is formulated with a high concentration of botanically-based ingredients that dissolve impurities while soothing and hydrating sensitive and post-procedure skin. Free of parabens, sulfates, fragrance, dyes and alcohol, it’s also non-comedogenic so it won’t clog pores or contribute to acne breakouts.

Step 2 (AM): Serum 10 AOX+

A daily topical antioxidant is essential for protecting the skin from free radicals generated by UV rays and pollution—as well as improving visible signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles. Serum 10 AOX+ is free of parabens, fragrance, alcohol and dyes, and its 10% concentration of pure vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) and 0.2% ferulic acid is ideal for sensitive skin and first-time vitamin C users.

Step 3 (AM/PM): Phyto Corrective Gel

Designed to soothe and hydrate the skin with gentle, botanically-based ingredients, this daily gel-based serum helps minimize the visible redness associated with sensitive skin as well. Featuring hyaluronic acid along with cucumber, olive, thyme and mulberry extracts, this ultra-lightweight, non-comedogenic, fast-absorbing serum also helps improve the look of uneven skin tone as it calms your complexion.

Step 4 (AM/PM): Metacell Renewal B3

This daily-use moisturizer provides much more than hydration thanks to a patent-pending formula powered by 5% niacinamide (vitamin B3), a skin-firming tripeptide concentrate and 15% glycerin to target early signs of aging. This gentle yet effective formula helps promote cellular turnover, clarify uneven skin tone and boost skin elasticity without irritating sensitive skin.

Step 5 (AM): Sheer Physical UV Defense SPF 50

Sun protection is essential for all skin types, but those with sensitive skin need UV protection that won’t cause stinging or burning. This weightless, ultra-sheer, 100%-physical sunscreen with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide provides broad-spectrum UV protection against UVA and UVB rays along with artemia salina plankton extract to shield the skin from UV- and heat-induced stress. Non-comedogenic and paraben-free, this chemical-free daily-use sunscreen absorbs quickly without leaving any white residue.

The key for keeping sensitive skin calm and comfortable is finding the right products that provide all the skincare benefits you want without any of the side effects you don’t. SkinCeuticals relies on research and science when formulating their products, and always keeps the needs of sensitive skin in mind.
