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. 

Which Deciem Products are good for sensitive? 

Which ingredients should you avoid with sensitive skin?

If you have sensitive skin, you should avoid strong acids, like Glycolic Toner, the AHA 30% Peel and Lactic Acid 10%.

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.
