Let’s talk about sensitive skin on the face; skin that needs some extra love and attention. We know this skin type can be a challenge, but with the right care, you can keep your skin looking radiant and healthy.
Why do we have sensitive skin?
Sensitive skin can be the result of many factors. Some people have a genetic predisposition to more delicate skin, while other factors like climate, exposure to irritant products and stress can trigger these reactions.
Facial redness can be a common symptom of sensitive skin. This reaction can be caused by a dilation of the blood vessels or greater sensitivity to external stimuli. It’s important to avoid triggers like the sun, excessive heat or aggressive products, and to opt for mild, soothing products.
Atopic skin is another frequently seen condition. It can react to certain ingredients in face care products, make-up or even foods. Identifying and avoiding known allergens is key to keeping your skin looking healthy and free from irritation.
If your face is prone to symptoms like redness, itching and tightness, we know how challenging things can be. The team at Atache is here to help!
How do I take care of my sensitive skin in my daily life?
When it comes to your care routine, less is more. Go with mild products. Look for mild cleansers that don’t dry out the skin, like our cleansing gel, Sensitive Cleanser, and always use warm water, never hot water. And don’t forget to use sunscreen!
Hydration is key. Discover the magic of serums that have been designed especially for delicate skin, such as our Soft Therapy serum. Its lightweight texture and mild formulas offer deep hydration and soothe irritation. You should also look for a moisturising cream specifically for sensitive skin and apply it using gentle circular motions. Avoid irritant ingredients like alcohol and strong fragrances. Our Soft Repair cream is perfect for this type of care.
We know how important it is to find the right products for sensitive skin; products that soothe and calm while also still being effective. That’s why we’re outlining the main ingredients you should be on the lookout for when it comes to caring for sensitive skin.
The key to caring for sensitive skin lies in the ingredients
Thermal spring water is a star ingredient in cosmetics for sensitive skin and it has soothing, moisturising and antioxidant properties that help restore and protect the skin. But what makes thermal spring water so special? That’s easy! It comes from natural sources and contains essential minerals, such as zinc and magnesium, which are beneficial to the skin. In the case of our cleansing gel, Sensitive Cleanser, the water it contains is from the thermal springs of Salies-de-Béarn in the foothills of the Pyrenees.
When applying thermal spring water to your face, you’ll be giving your skin an instant boost of hydration and the nutrients it needs to guarantee the right balance and improve its well-being. In addition, it helps to soothe irritation and redness, reducing sensitivity and improving the skin’s general appearance. It’s like a refreshing embrace for your complexion.
Another ingredient you should consider is Enteromorpha Compressa, also known as green seaweed. One of nature’s crown jewels, it offers multiple benefits for delicate skin types. This particular seaweed has a high concentration of proteins, lipids, vitamins B, C and E, and is very rich in minerals. Its moisturising and nourishing properties help restore skin balance, and it also reduces redness, itching, tightness and flaking in sensitive skin.
Capparis Spinosa, the caper bush, is a true gift from nature when it comes to caring for and protecting delicate skin. This natural ingredient is brimming with benefits that will work wonders on your sensitive skin. This natural active ingredient is extracted from capers and helps to protect the skin, reducing inflammation and shielding it from the aggressions of oxidative stress. It also soothes the skin, alleviating discomfort such as itching, stinging or tightness.
Lastly, there’s one more incredible ingredient given its simplicity: milk proteins. They help collagen synthesis to firm, soften and revitalise the skin. They also easily penetrate the skin, meaning they act efficiently.
Make sure you watch what you eat too! A balanced diet rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals will help to keep your skin healthy from the inside out. Don’t forget to drink plenty of water to keep your skin well-hydrated.
And last but not least, don’t stress! Stress can trigger skin reactions, so make sure you take time to relax and do things that make you happy. Your skin will thank you for it!
