A proper regimen skincare regimen is essential for keeping sensitive skin calm and comfortable. SkinCeuticals offers cleansers, topical vitamin C antioxidant serums, moisturizers, treatment serums, sunscreens, masques, and more for sensitive skin that help address a variety of common skin concerns while being safe for sensitized skin. SkinCeuticals also offers solutions to soothe visible redness associated with sensitive skin.
WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE BEST FOR SENSITIVE SKIN?
The ideal ingredients for sensitive skin are effective yet gentle and non-irritating to the skin. Botanicals such as thyme and cucumber extracts are beneficial for their soothing and calming benefits, and may be able to minimize the appearance of redness when included in a serum for sensitive skin. Hyaluronic acid is an effective moisturizing ingredient in skincare for sensitive skin, while niacinamide and ceramides can help reinforce the skin’s barrier to comfort sunscreens for sensitive skin, mineral-based UV filters such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide (found in Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50) pose minimal risk of skin reaction.
WHAT SKINCARE REGIMEN SHOULD YOU USE FOR SENSITIVE SKIN?
SkinCeuticals skincare for sensitive skin is formulated to address a wide array of skin concerns while being gentle and non-irritating. To start, our Soothing Cleanser and Gentle Cleanser effectively remove makeup and impurities while being mild enough for sensitive skin. A daily vitamin C antioxidant is essential for environmental protection, and Serum 10 AOX+ is generally well-tolerated by sensitive skin. A soothing serum for sensitive skin (such as Phyto Corrective Gel) can help calm, hydrate, and reduce the appearance of redness. We also offer several moisturizers and sunscreens that are appropriate for sensitive skin. Our Phyto A+ Brightening Treatment can be used any time or anywhere your sensitive skin needs to be hydrated, calmed, and have the appearance of redness reduced without disturbing makeup.

CAN SENSITIVE SKIN USE RETINOL?
When selecting skincare for sensitive skin, it’s important to ensure the products you choose are gentle and non-irritating to the skin. We highly recommend consulting with a SkinCeuticals skincare professional before incorporating retinol into your routine. However, those looking for an anti-aging serum for sensitive skin have several SkinCeuticals options, including Retexturing Activator and Resveratrol B E.
CAN SENSITIVE SKIN USE VITAMIN C?
Absolutely. Serum 10 AOX+ is the ideal “starter” antioxidant serum for sensitive skin. Once your sensitive skin demonstrates tolerance for this daily vitamin C, you can increase your concentration to 15% with our award-winning C E Ferulic.
