Living with sensitive skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and more is already not an easy feat. Throw in makeup to the mix? It gets even more complicated, with constant flare-ups, irritations, and allergies causing added frustration.
To help you manage these makeup woes, our team at Liht Organics helped put together a simple list of essential and easy-to-follow makeup tips that are suitable for sensitive skin.
Choose Lightweight Foundations
When it comes to sensitive skin, using heavy textures and too much product on your face is a big no-no as it can lead to suffocated skin which causes the flare-up of sensitivity. To avoid this, choose a lightweight, gel-based, breathable formula to ensure the pores are not clogged and the skin is kept hydrated.
Our Recommendation: Youth Elixir Liquid Foundation – our best-selling organic foundation made with a nourishing Aloe Vera base that offers a non-clogging breathable texture, for all-day coverage that is packed with natural and organic ingredients such as Shea Butter and Vanilla extract to hydrate and protect your skin from environmental damage!
Use Concealers Sparingly
Concealers work wonders to cover up pesky blemishes and redness, but with sensitive skin, that could inadvertently cause more problems since most commercial concealers tend to contain tons of chemicals that help the concealer to dry in place and stay put throughout the day. These chemicals get absorbed into the blemish and further aggravate the swelling and sensitivity – leading to possible allergic reactions or even acne breakouts!
Our tip? Use concealers sparingly, on only the areas you need. And when you do, make sure to choose one that comes with a clean formula that is free of parabens and synthetic chemical ingredients such as our Flawless Face Concealer, which is instead chock full of natural plant extracts that have moisturising properties to help heal as it conceals!
Keep Your Skin Moisturised
A healthy moisture barrier in layers of our skin that locks in hydration is one of the most important aspects when it comes to achieving a healthy complexion. Having sufficient moisture in the skin plumps up our skin cells and keeps skin supple and pliable, making it less prone to itchiness, flare-ups and outbreaks. Keep to a daily routine of serums and moisturisers that are suitable for sensitive skin (we recommend gel based) to help your skin regulate its hydration levels.
At the same time, you should also actively avoid makeup products that come with skin-drying ingredients like ethanol, isopropyl alcohol, fragrances, glycolic acid, and salicylic acid amongst many others.
Mask Your Skin Sensitivity with Correct Colour Choices
If you often experience skin conditions that cause your skin to flare up red and angry, then a tip would be to avoid further emphasising that with pink, purple, or iridescent hues when choosing shades of color cosmetics like blush and lipstick.
Want to mask the redness from your flareups? Your best bet is a colour corrector that can help cancel out the redness.
Our Recommendation: Prime Time Colour Corrector which helps to neutralise discoloration and is made with natural ingredients, so it won’t further irritate your skin.
Go Natural and Avoid Chemicals
Given the sensitivity of your skin, it is important to get educated on the potential triggers in order to make the best choices in your beauty routine. A simple guideline to follow? Go clean and avoid chemical cosmetics that often contain toxic chemicals that can further aggravate your skin.
Our Recommendation: Opt for clean, and truly organic makeup brands that use 100% natural ingredients and steer clear of harmful and synthetic chemicals and fragrances.
