At Define by Jill, we understand that sensitive or impaired skins requires special attention and care. If you experience redness, irritation, or dehydration repairing your skins barrier is essential. Here are our top tips and product recommendations to help you achieve healthy, glowing skin without the discomfort.

1. Know Your Triggers

Common irritants include fragrances, alcohol, and harsh chemicals are the main contributors to a sensitised or impaired skin. Opt for products labelled “fragrance-free” and “corneotheraputic” to minimise the risk of irritation. If you’re wondering what Corneotherapy is, it is the science of respecting your skin barrier and always maintaining homeostasis in this skin. Fragrances, Emulsifiers, Colours, Silicones and Mineral oils all trigger skin sensitivies which all dermaviduals products are free from

2. Gentle Cleansing

Choose a mild skin mimicking cleanser that gently removes impurities without stripping your skin of its natural oils. Look for ingredients like Triglycerides (from coconut oil), Ceremides (from Yeast), Squalene (from Olives) and Natural Moisturising Factor (from Soy Beans) which lucky for DBJ clients have at their fingertips in your dermaviduals products!

3. Moisturise Daily

Helping to repair, rebuild and repair the skin barrier is key for sensitised skins. Using the appropriate weighted moisturiser to keep your skin hydrated and barrier intact. Products containing ceramides and Phospholipids are excellent choices.

4. Sun Protection

Sensitive skin is more prone to sun damage, so daily sunscreen use is a must.

5. Avoid Over-Exfoliating

While exfoliation is important for some skin types, overdoing it can cause irritation. Only use an exfoliant once your skin has been repaired

6. Incorporate Calming Ingredients

At Define by Jill we can customise a serum specifically for your skin! We always make sure to incorporate calming ingredience that work in perfect unison with your other dermaviduals products.

7. Patch Test New Products

Always patch test new products on a small area of your skin before full application. This helps ensure that you won’t have an adverse reaction to any new ingredients.

8. Stay Hydrated and Eat Well

Your diet and hydration levels play a significant role in skin health. Drink plenty of water and consume foods rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and omega-3 fatty acids to support your skin from the inside out.

9. Simplify Your Routine

Less is often more with sensitive skin. Stick to a simple, consistent skincare routine to avoid overwhelming your skin with too many products.
