If you suffer from rosacea or if your skin easily gets red irritated or itchy, then I have some nice tips for really gentle & soothing skin care products from Korea. Perfect for sensitive skin!
There are a couple of Korean brands that I always mention when friends with sensitive skin ask me for skin care advice. And those brands are Benton, Klairs and Mizon. I feel that both Benton and Klairs holds a very good quality with gentle products that are free from additives. I would say that basically all their products are more or less suitable for sensitive skin types, rosacea, irritated red or itchy inflamed and troubled skin. Mizon is one of the best on snail products in my opinion. And snail skin care is incredibly gentle to the skin. And at the same time naturally healing, hydrating and soothing. Perfect for sensitive skin types. Read more about my top 3 best Korean snail creams here.
If your skin is flushed and red, or if you are suffering from acne, inflamed skin, or often react to skin care, then here’s a gentle and hydrating Korean skin care routine that doesn’t irritate the skin. All these skin care products mentioned are also lightweight and do not clog the pores. Ideal for normal and combination to oily and sensitive skin.
Korean Skin Care Routine for Sensitive Skin
Nature Republic Aloe Vera Foam Cleanser forms a creamy foam and gently cleanses the skin without stripping or drying, and it’s so incredibly affordable too costing like 6β¬. The Innisfree The Minimum line is an incredibly gentle skin care line specifically targeted towards sensitive skin. Worth looking into since it includes everything from cleanser, toner and serum to face cream and SPF. Everything suitable for sensitive skin and costing less than 10β¬ / product. Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream is an old Korean classic that used to cost 4-5β¬ on Ebay back in the day. Search the big Korean web shops for the best price. Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream is a soothing and healing slightly moist translucent gel with 74% snail secretion filtrate. If you think snails seem a bit scary then try Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel instead. A large tube of 100ml with cooling and hydrating Aloe Vera & Propolis gel. Naturally anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and soothing. A gel perfectly formulated for sensitive skin, acne prone skin, troubled skin and redness. No added perfume. Costs around 12β¬. And last but not least, Klairs sheet masks! Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Sheet Mask is an old favorite of mine. Also check out the newer Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Tencel Sheet Mask which is also great.
