Hi, what are you looking for?

The Ordinary Sensitive Skin Regimen

The Ordinary Sensitive Skin Regimen – I want to start by saying that I LOVE The Ordinary because I have sensitive skin. I am so thankful that The Ordinary does not use fragrance. So, if, like me, fragrance is often the issue, I hope The Ordinary works for you as well as it works for me. Further down the page, you can find more information about the products in this regimen and a quick guide to sensitive skin.

Your Step By Step Guide To Applying Your Products

  • Start with cleansed skin. You can choose from one of these cleansers from The Ordinary & NIOD. I have sensitive skin and have used all 5 with no problems at all.
  • Once cleansed, put 2/3 drops of Hyaluronic Acid into the palm of your hands and pat or massage into your skin. Some people say this should be applied to damp skin. The Ordinary says to use however you wish.
  • After applying your Hyaluronic Acid, use a pea-sized amount of Natural Moisturizing Factors followed by your SPF.
  • For your evening routine, start with cleansed skin.
  • You could apply Hyaluronic Acid here, even though this routine goes straight to oil.
  • 2/3 drops of oil is all you need, followed by your moisturizer.
  • If you don´t like oils, skip the oil or add a drop or 2 to your moisturizer and then apply.
  • See what works for you.

Your Quick Guide To Sensitive Skin

About Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin is very reactive and prone to flares of itching and redness. It might be a permanent problem, a temporary state, or something that happens in response to something specific, like an ingredient or stress.

What does sensitive skin look/feel like?

During a flare-up, your skin could be red, bumpy, rash, dry, tight, inflamed, and itchy.

Sensitive Skin – What Causes Sensitive Skin?

Many things can cause sensitivity: allergies, eczema, genetics, stress, hormones, sleeplessness, heat, and over-cleansing. Figuring out what triggers your skin is the first step to treating sensitive skin. 

The Best Ordinary Products For Sensitive Skin

Which ingredients should you avoid with sensitive skin?

You should avoid strong acids, like Glycolic Toner, the AHA 30%, and Lactic Acid 10% if you have sensitive skin. Be careful when laying products. Sometimes, it may be the combination that irritates you.

My own experience with sensitive skin

Before The Ordinary, I suffered so many allergic reactions to skincare products, and it was the fragrance used in many products. I have used nearly every single product from The Ordinary, and happy to say I haven´t had any reactions like I used to have.
