DEALING WITH SENSITIVE SKIN
While Retinol and Alpha Hydroxy Acids are great, they can cause further irritation if you overuse them. Press pause on Retinol if you’re experiencing a flare-up and reach for a gentle exfoliant such as Enzymatic Micro Peel instead. Hydrating and reconditioning, it removes expired skin cells, which will improve the smoothness and radiance of your complexion.
Niacinamide is another particularly useful ingredient for sensitive skin as it instigates repair functions, improving barrier integrity and skin resilience. 10% Niacinamide Power Serum calms and protects, improving the look of redness and blotchy texture; plus, it contains a Probiotic Complex to balance the microbiome and relieve signs of irritation.
Finally, if you are experiencing a skin meltdown, reach for a formula that will instantly soothe, like Laser Aid, which combines botanical ingredients to offer instant relief from redness, warmth and irritation. Slather on a thin layer of this cooling gel and leave for 10 minutes as a mask, or sleep in it overnight.
