Solution: Cleansers For Finicky, Sensitive Skin

September 2, 2008 by SheFindsErin
shefinds | Style

Our skin can be so finicky. One minute it's tight, dry, and itchy and the next it's competing with that pepperoni pizza we just ate for greasiest surface ever. A good deep cleaning can typically balance us out, but for ladies with sensitive skin, finding the right stabilizing cleanser can be a chore. Thankfully, many skincare lines are offering for-sensitive-skin-only formulas designed to soothe, calm, and cleanse even the most feisty faces. Here are three of our gentle faves, along with a lasts-the-day cream to keep things in control.


Best for Makeup Mavens: You're not doing your skin (sensitive or otherwise) any favors by going to sleep with a full face of makeup every night. Banish dirt and oil before bed, and give yourself a mini facial, with a sensitive skin-friendly cleansing oil like DHC Soft Touch ($14).

Best for Dry Skin: Soapy lather and lots of scrubbing can leave even the most balanced skin tight and achy. Combat overdrying with a vitamin-packed cream cleanser like Joey New York Calm and Correct Gentle Soothing Cleanser ($27).

Best for Big Spenders: There are some products it's just worth spending more on, and if you've got super sensitive skin, your cleanser isn't the item to scrimp on. If re-balancing sensitive skin is priority one, indulge in Jurlique's Soothing Foaming Cleanser ($40), a calming blend of groomwell and peppercorn that gives even the fussiest face a balanced glow.

Best Follow-Up: Cleansing is only the first step in caring for sensitive skin. Follow up your pore purifying scrub with a sensitive skin-targeted day cream like Annemarie Borlind ZZ Sensitive Skin Day Cream ($21) that will keep your face hydrated throughout the day. Stressed out skin gets a soothing pre-makeup boost with this organic cream that fights signs of aging and can be used on skin with broken capillaries or rosacea.
