My sensitivities and dryness routine
My skin right now:
Under the influence of certain triggers, sensitivities and/or redness may appear, caused by a dilation of the capillary blood vessels. Normally, these small vessels should return to their initial size once the event has passed, but over time, the phenomenon can worsen, leading to couperose patches or the famous rosacea. To fight against this phenomenon, it is therefore essential to adopt an adapted, gentle and soothing routine.
Finally, this routine can help you if your skin is chronically dry and uncomfortable. Rich in comforting lipids, it will restore suppleness and "glow" to your skin.
Your complete routine
To get started:
In the morning, start your routine by cleansing your skin with theCleansing Emulsion Oh My Cream Skincarea rich, creamy cleansing milk that soothes while restoring the skin's comfort and suppleness.
Then apply Nourishing Eye Cream Baume Contour des Yeux Susanne Kaufmann, an eye contour balm with a "bandage" effect to deeply nourish and smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
Continue your routine with the Instant Kalmer serum Pai SkincareThis de-stressing serum calms, refreshes and soothes uncomfortable skin weakened by stress, while improving resistance and hydration.
We finish with the cream Anthemis Cream Pai Skincarea moisturizing cream with a light texture that neutralizes redness and irritation while boosting cellular repair. If you're looking for a smoother texture, opt for the intensely nourishing cream Vanilla Pod Antipodeswhich protects the skin and activates its repair to regain comfort and suppleness.
In the evening, we launch into a double cleansing by starting with the Cleansing Balm Oh My Cream Skincare. This creamy balm transforms into oil to dissolve makeup while minimizing redness. Then, complete the cleansing of your skin with theCleansing Emulsion Oh My Cream Skincare.

Some skin types are more fragile than others. Under the effect of external aggressions, tingling, discomfort and redness appear. These sensitivities can be linked to the type of skin, that is to say that the skin will always be sensitive, it is written in its genes. But it is not only heredity: sometimes, these reactions are linked to external factors, such as unsuitable care, medication or other. In this case, the skin is said to be sensitized. Whatever your case, this guide will give you all the right gestures to have a beautiful skin, perfectly soothed and without redness if you suffer from sensitivities.
Why does redness appear on the face?
We can notice the appearance of redness on our face under the influence of certain triggers. Cold weather, sun exposure, stress or strong emotions can cause capillary blood vessels to dilate and trigger redness. Normally, these small vessels should return to their original size once the event has passed. However, over time, the phenomenon gets worse: the vessels become increasingly dilated and visible to the naked eye, and the redness becomes permanent. The redness can become localized in red patches, especially on the cheekbones and nose. In the long run, the phenomenon can develop into couperose or rosacea (giving the skin a permanent red color). If this symptom speaks to you, do not hesitate to consult a specialist: dermatological laser has made enormous progress in recent years...
What to do about facial redness?
A thorough cleanse to reduce facial redness
Double cleansing is ideal for all skin types: it's the most effective and gentle way to cleanse. As a bonus, it is also a great ally for sensitive skin. In fact, gently cleansed in this way, without detergents or cotton pads, the skin will be durably soothed and will never be red again after make-up removal. First step, I start with a balm or a make-up remover oil: this first product will start to soften and nourish the skin by providing it with the fatty acids necessary for its comfort. In addition, the oily texture will also begin to moisturize the skin and provide comfort. A good point if you have dry skin or dehydrated dehydrated skin. But rest assured, the use of a makeup remover oil also allows to gently regulate oily skin and combination skin by eliminating shine in a delicate way. (Indeed, very often, combination to oily skin can also be sensitive).
In the second step, to refine the result and clean deeply, we follow the oil or balm with a milk or a soft cleansing gel. Moisturizing and comfortable, the milks clean perfectly without attacking the sensitive skin prone to tightness. But if you're looking for freshness, gentle gel cleansers are also a good option for cleansing without accentuating redness or irritation.
A soft exfoliation for sensitive skins
It is often the gesture that frightens sensitive skin. However, not all exfoliants are irritating. On the contrary, a gentle scrub will remove all the dead cells that have accumulated on the surface and prevent the skin from benefiting 100% from the soothing active ingredients that are applied afterwards. Exfoliating will also allow to chase away the dullness by making room for fresh cells...
A skincare oil to protect against external aggressors
Finally, we finish our routine by protecting our skin with a care oil for sensitive skin. L'care oilas a serum or on its own, is the gesture that will allow to maintain the good level of hydration of the skin, while regulating it if it presents shine. Rich in essential fatty acids and nutrients, it is the gesture which brings comfort and fights against dehydration. It also restores the hydrolipidic film and helps the skin to rebuild its protective shield to be more solid against aggressions.
The best creams and face care products to prevent redness
To maximize results, I add a few well-chosen specific gestures to my routine.Gentlelotion, calming mask, moisturizing cream... I choose from among these adapted and targeted treatments to offer myself the most complete routine to reduce sensitivity as much as possible.

DOs when you have sensitive skin
- We track down the soothing active ingredients on the labels: chamomile, azulene, oatmeal or calendula are plants with great anti-inflammatory properties.
- A foundation that flakes because of irritated skin? The day before, perform a gentle exfoliation. No more small skins and hello the glowy complexion!
- Use soothing lotions after cleansing: this immediately neutralises the hard water which dehydrates the skin and makes it sensitive.
DON'Ts for sensitive skin
- Choosing makeup removers too quickly. Micellar water, for example, is an irritating cleanser for the skin. Rich in detergents, it sensitizes and often leaves the face red. It is rarely rinsed off and leaves most of the impurities on the skin's surface. Changing this step is already enough to transform the skin...
- Use makeup that contains alcohol, synthetic perfumes... A disaster for sensitive skin.
- Excessive use of exfoliating products: over-exfoliation can sensitize the epidermis and aggravate existing skin problems (by defending itself, the skin can react with imperfections on the face). One opts rather for softness and a lighter frequency of use.
