Anyone with even vaguely sensitive skin will know that there are a certain number of things which are almost guaranteed to cause redness and irritation. Unfortunately January is one of those times of the year where you are surrounded by these Things on an almost daily basis. Simply stepping out into the cold can be enough to cause a reaction, while being inside a centrally heated house can also dry your skin out and irritate your complexion. Fortunately, REN Clean Skincare have created their Evercalm range, which is specifically designed to fight the causes and appearance of irritation and sensitivity. Here are some of our favourites from the range:
Every good skincare routine starts with a cleanser and this one is no exception. Gel products are particularly good for sensitive skin because they are refreshing and soothing to a complexion which is dealing with irritation. This cleansing gel contains pre-biotics which support the good bacteria in your skin and clean your face without stripping away any of the moisture. It removes dirt and pollution effectively without any harshness and the active ingredients help to reveal skin which is glowing in a good way.
Using a day cream if you have sensitive skin is pretty much essential. This Global Protection Day Cream from the Evercalm range has been around for two decades and is one of Ren‘s best selling moisturisers. It contains antioxidant and free radical scavengers, as well as soothing seed oils to protect the skin against dehydration and fights against the signs of ageing. It also contains blackcurrant seed oil which is rich in omega-3 and seabuckthorn oil which is rich in omega-7. both of which nourish, soothe and soften the skin.
“Night time is the right time” as the old Ray Charles lyrics go and this is especially true for anyone with sensitive skin who wants to use something potent. The Overnight Recovery Balm from the Evercalm range is a rich balm made from olive, almond, borage and linseed oils, which are easily absorbed and will intensely nourish and moisturise your skin. Jojoba and sunflower oils support the skin’s natural lipid balance while beta glucan soothes any signs of irritation from dryness. It can also be used on dry lips and any other rough patches on your body such as on the knees and elbows.
Masks are a fantastic product for people with sensitive skin as they are left on the skin for a much longer time allowing for maximum results. This Ultra Comforting Rescue Mask will calm, soothe and moisturise your skin and will instantly relieve the key signs of sensitive skin such as redness and tightness. Extended use will strengthen your skin’s moisture barrier, making it more able to cope with stressors in the long run.
Serums are another hero product for those of us with sensitive skin as they are generally the most potent products within a range. The Redness Relief Serum in the REN Clean Skincare range contains white mushroom, triglycerides and other seed oils and extracts which reduce redness in just 30 minutes. After seven days dryness, itching, discomfort, flakiness, tightness or burning sensations will all be dramatically reduced and the serum works even better at cooling your complexion if you store it in the fridge. It’s recommended that you gently press the formula into your skin rather than rubbing as this will help reduce friction and cut down on the risk of irritation and inflammation.
