Dry and sensitive skincare routine
Sensitive skin symptoms include redness, burning, and sometimes bumps, primarily on the central part of the face, triggered by sun, harsh skincare products, intense emotions, heat, alcohol, and stress. Dry and sensitive skincare routine focuses on calming and hydrating your skin, as discussed below.
What is it? Sensitive skincare routine
Which skin type? Dry skin type
Once your skin is irritated, it needs a break. Therefore, stop all skin care products, parlor procedures, and topical medicines. As discussed below, use bland skincare products in the morning and night to calm your skin. After your skin recovers, gradually introduce one skincare product at a time.
MORNING AND NIGHT REGIME:
Step 1 Face wash
The right type of cleanser that does not irritate your sensitive skin is essential. It should not damage the skin barrier or leave it overdry. Avoid overzealous cleansing, scrubbing or rubbing your skin with the towel.
- Vanicream Face Wash
- Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser
- Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Cleanser
- Cerave Hydrating Cleanser
Step 2: Rosewater
Spray organic rose water on your face and massage it gently until absorbed. The idea is not to use rose water as a toner but to let it seep into your skin to soothe it.

Step 3: Moisturiser
Put ceramide-based moisturizers every 3-4 hours to hydrate and repair your skin.
- Cera Ve Moisturising Cream has Glycerine, petrolatum, Sodium hyaluronate, cholesterol, ceramide, and water for deep nourishment of your skin.
- Bioderma Atoderma cream available at Amazon.in and Amazon.com
Step 4: Physical sunscreen
Sun is a trigger for rosacea or sensitive skin. Therefore, dermatologists recommend using physical sunscreen(not chemical sunscreen) before stepping outside.
