5 reasons it’s difficult to find anti-aging skincare for your sensitive skin

SHARE

If you want smoother, more hydrated skin with fewer dark spots and wrinkles there’s thousands of skincare choices out there. 

Unless you have sensitive skin… 

Then it can feel almost impossible to find products with proven anti-aging ingredients that don’t irritate. 

Here’s 5 reasons why it’s so hard to find effective anti-aging skincare that’s gentle enough for sensitive skin… and what you can do about it.

Reason #1 - Too much, too soon

Effective anti-aging ingredients can take sensitive skin some getting used to. But most skincare brands don’t let you know you should ease into your new routine.

Antioxidants like Vitamin C and Vitamin E are powerhouse ingredients, but sensitive skin needs time to adjust. That’s why it’s important to introduce this kind of skincare into your routine just once a day or once every other day before you use it more often. It’s an effective way to make sure you don’t disturb your skin.

Reason #2 - It’s full of fillers and fragrances

The reason so many skincare products can irritate your skin is because of ingredients like fragrances, parabens, and formaldehyde-releasing agents. These fillers often get included to help preserve active ingredients. When you choose your skincare, be sure to look for products without these irritants. Your sensitive skin will thank you!

Reason #3 - You’re using too much product

Just because moisturizer is good for your skin, doesn’t mean you need to slather it on. In fact, a pea-sized amount of moisturizer should be plenty.

Using too much moisturizer can actually make your skin drier. That’s because it sends signals to your body to stop producing the oils that protect your skin. You end up losing your skin’s natural hydrating power and making it dry and flakey.

But most skincare brands will never share this important information. That’s because the faster you use up a product, the sooner you have to buy more.

Reason #4 - You can’t try it before you buy

The real test of any skincare product is actually using it. Unfortunately, it can cost you a lot of money testing out different skincare brands. And even if you’re able to pick up a sample, it’s usually only enough for one or two applications, which isn’t nearly enough to see if you like it.

You normally need a good two weeks to notice if your sensitive skin can tolerate a product. It also takes about two weeks to see a difference in hydration and texture. 

Reason #5 - To exfoliate or not?

It’s a catch-22. Exfoliation is crucial to remove dead skin cells and to brighten your skin. But if it’s not done right, it can make your sensitive skin red and angry. That’s why you have to use an exfoliant that isn’t harsh and won’t damage your skin’s natural barrier.

When you’re looking for a way to exfoliate, be sure to find a product that uses AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acid). It’s a safe and effective chemical exfoliant for sensitive skin.

If you’ve struggled to find skincare products with effective anti-aging ingredients that don’t irritate your skin, it’s not your fault. Most brands aren’t developed for sensitive skin, and those that are often have fillers and extra ingredients that reduce the effectiveness.
