The symptoms of sensitive skin are almost always undeniable and can be heightened during the winter months. If you’re someone with sensitive skin, it can be difficult to know which ingredients are ideal for you. Here are 7 ingredients to check out for sensitive skin!



We may sound like a broken record, but zinc is powerful! Zinc oxide not only protects your skin from harmful UV rays, but it is also great for calming and soothing your skin. We recommend our products with a higher percentage of zinc oxide for those with sensitive skin because it is so gentle! Additionally, zinc oxide is great to use post procedure or after a peel. Check out our Zinc blog to learn all the ways zinc oxide is beneficial to the skin!

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid is found naturally in your skin but as you get older, your skin stops producing as much of it. This is why it is important to replace it topically! Hyaluronic acid delivers the moisturizing benefits your skin needs without causing irritation. It pulls moisture from the environment around you to supplement hydration on all types of skin, especially dry skin.

Adding peptides to your skincare routine can result in the appearance of firmer, younger looking skin. Additionally, peptides can help repair signs of photodamage and can help even out your skin’s tone and texture. Peptides can help improve your skin’s barrier, which helps prevent moisture loss and is the body’s line of defense against pollution and other toxins that may also cause your skin to become irritated. As if these benefits weren’t enough, peptides can help reduce the look of wrinkles and encourage skin elasticity.

Ceramides are naturally found in high concentrations in the outermost layer of the skin (noticing a trend here?). Ceramides are waxy lipids or fats that form a part of the skin barrier to protect sensitive skin from becoming dry and cracked. As the skin’s natural moisturizer, ceramides aid in creating a protective layer that helps prevent the loss of moisture and shield the skin from pollutants. Sun damage and the natural aging process can reduce the production of ceramides which is why it’s important to replenish them topically.

Antioxidants protect the skin by limiting free radical production. Free radicals are naturally produced in our bodies but can also come from UV rays and environmental pollution. Once we have an overload of free radicals present, it causes an imbalance between the production of free radicals and the ability of the body to counteract or detoxify their harmful effects, a situation known as oxidative stress. Antioxidants help neutralize the free radicals to combat signs of aging. Some antioxidants also help the skin with hydration and moisture. Antioxidants both help reduce UV damage and can help to reverse the effects by aiding in the repair of the skin while brightening your skin tone.
