How to choose a cream or lotion

if you have sensitive skin

Understanding your skin type and how to give it the best care is important. If you experience genetic or allergic skin rashes frequently, then the likelihood is that you have sensitive skin. Sensitive skin is characterised by your skin’s response to its environment.

But don’t let the term freak you out. There are plenty of great products on the market for sensitive skin if you know where to look. Here are some key features to look out for when selecting a cream or lotion for sensitive skin. 

Choose natural moisturisers

Your skin loses moisture throughout the day, so it’s essential to keep it hydrated. One way to do so is to try Dawn’s new range of lotions and creams. Dawn now offers a range of lotions and creams that specifically hydrate your skin because they know natural lubricants are an excellent source of moisture for your skin.

Avoid synthetic ingredients and fragrances

Sensitive skin  will often react to synthetic ingredients. This is why people with sensitive skin usually seek out creams and lotions that are 100% natural and fragrance-free, because they soothe and moisturise without causing a reaction. Lucky for us, Dawn’s new range also features two variants that have been formulated especially for delicate skin types. These are Aloe Vera and Avocado Oil as well as Chamomile and Moringa, both of which are hypoallergenic, fragrance-free and packed with natural emollients.

Choose something soothing

Chamomile and aloe vera are ingredients that soothe and hydrate sensitive, delicate skin. These ingredients are fantastic additions to Dawn’s creams and lotions designed especially for sensitive skin because they contain anti-inflammatory properties. When selecting your moisturiser always keep an eye out for products that contain naturally soothing ingredients

It is possible for everyone, including those who have sensitive skin, to enjoy soft radiant skin with new Dawn’s range of creams and lotions formulated to enable each woman to look and feel her best. To paraphrase an old saying, life is better when you’re comfortable in your own skin, even if it’s a little sensitive.
