Sensitive skin? There’s a facial regimen for you!

Sensitive skin? There's a facial regimen for you!

There are hundreds of thousands of anti-aging products on the market today, but if you have sensitive skin, you might have woken up to a rash, dry skin or even breakouts after trying these creams and serums.

However, that doesn’t mean you should give up on these products altogether! Even those of us with sensitive skin can still have healthy, youthful looking skin. There are certain ingredients that do not have a place in your anti-aging cream, and others that do.

If you have sensitive skin, look for face washes, night creams and moisturizers that are fragrance and chemical free. Chemicals such as sodium lauryl sulfate, are often found in face and body washes because they make the skin feel super clean. However, this  feeling is achieved by breaking down the lipids on the skin that keep it together, which then causes dryness.

Daily moisturizer for sensitive skin should always have SPF 15 or higher, because sometimes, even the tiniest amount of sun exposure can irritate the skin and cause damage. Anti-aging ingredients like hyaluronic acid and other collagen-promoting ingredients shouldn’t irritate the skin, so you can still enjoy the wrinkle-smoothing qualities of many creams.

Trina Coccarelli
By: Trina Coccarelli

At the age of 10, Trina was afflicted with the worst acne ever (at least that’s how she felt). After years of taunting and rude nicknames from the campus mean girls, she decided to gain all the knowledge that she could about skincare. When her acne cleared, all those mean girls were running to her to get all the intel on how to clear their own less –than-perfect skin. From that day on, she was acutely aware of the power that she held (insert evil witches cackle here.) Skincare was her ticket to high school domination. In the years following, she built upon that knowledge base and parlayed it into a stellar career in the skincare industry. Trina’s worked for the biggest names in the game. Now, she’s here with the y|b|a team to keep YOU in the know.
