Found the perfect lotion for you yet? I know it can be quite challenging, especially because a lot of them feel a bit too heavy on the skin. Finding the right one for sensitive skin can be even harder. There are just so many things to consider!
Ingredients to avoid when you have sensitive skin
It’s case-by-case, of course, but if you steer clear from known common skin irritants, that’ll be great. If you can, pick a product that doesn’t contain petroleum, fragrance, sulfates and skincare actives such as alphahydroxy acids, glycolic acid and lactic acid.
There’s also a common misconception that natural is always better. There are some instances though where natural ingredients cause irritation — not always but you have to be very careful of what to use.
