What Is Sensitive Skin?

The Role Of Sunscreen

What Is Sensitive Skin? 

Sensitive skin is extra responsive to its surroundings, often reacting to various triggers with discomfort or irritation. It can feel like a constant balancing act, with factors like harsh weather, fragrances, certain ingredients in skincare products, or even emotional stressors causing it to flare up. This type of skin might feel tight and itchy, or develop redness and bumps more easily. Hence, there is a need to opt for all things gentle when it comes to this skin type.

The Role Of Sunscreen 

The best sunscreen for sensitive skin plays a vital role in maintaining the skin's overall health. It works in the following ways -

  • It acts as a protective barrier, shielding your skin from the damaging effects of UV rays.
  • It's your first line of defence against sunburn, premature ageing signs like wrinkles, and even skin cancer.
  • Blocking harmful UV rays, it helps prevent the formation of dark spots and uneven skin tone.

Risks Of Not Using Sunscreen On Sensitive Skin

Applying sunscreen for sensitive skin is vital to protect it from the following:

  • Sunburn: Sensitive skin is extra vulnerable to sunburn, leading to painful redness and discomfort.
  • Skin Irritation: Sun exposure can increase sensitivity, triggering inflammation, itching, and redness.
  • Redness: Sensitive skin is prone to redness, and sun exposure without sunscreen can worsen this condition and lead to uneven skin tone.

How To Pick The Perfect Sunscreen For Sensitive Skin 

If you have sensitive skin, you must be double careful with your chosen products. Picking the best sunscreen for sensitive skin is crucial to avoid allergies or irritation. Here's how to pick the best one -

  • Look out for gentle formulas: Look for sunscreens that have a mild or gentle formula. These are usually free from fragrances and hypoallergenic. Moreover, they don't contain harsh chemicals like sulphates.
  • Look for UVA, UVB, and Blue Light protection: The sunscreen should offer broad-spectrum protection, which guards against UVA and UVB rays and blue light as well. The label should say "broad-spectrum".
  • Opt for a high SPF: Choose a sunscreen with SPF 50. Sensitive skin is more prone to damage and a higher SPF gives better protection.
  • Look out for ingredients: Watch out for ingredients like Niacinamide, Vitamin E, and Glycerin. They work best on sensitive skin and provide maximum protection.

      How To Correctly Apply Sunscreen On Sensitive Skin 

      Here’s how you correctly apply sunscreen on sensitive skin:

      Step 1: Prep Your Skin 

      Start with clean, dry skin. If you have sensitive skin, avoid harsh cleansers or exfoliants before applying sunscreen. We recommend using our Refreshing Facial Wash. It’s ideal for sensitive skin and ensures to cleanse your face without drying. ­­

      Step 2: Apply Generously 

      Take a generous amount of our sunscreen (about a teaspoon for the face) and dot it onto different areas of your face.

      Step 3: Massage Gently

      Using gentle, circular motions, massage the sunscreen into your skin until it's evenly distributed. Don't forget often-missed areas like the ears, and neck.

      Step 4: Reapply Often 

      Reapply sunscreen every two hours or more frequently if you're swimming, sweating, or towel-drying. This is crucial for maintaining protection, especially for sensitive skin.
