Gentle Cleansing, the 5 Best Cleansers for Sensitive Skin.

Cleansing is one of the basic steps in any Korean skincare routine and should be practised every day, especially by those with sensitive skin.

Cleansing and sensitive skin. Why?

Eliminates excess sebum and dirt.
It allows subsequent treatments to penetrate deeply.
Does not affect the skin barrier, preserving the optimal level of moisture and natural oils.
Sensitive: the fifth skin type.

Many people think that sensitive skin is a condition. But sensitive skin is a skin type, just like normal, dry, oily and combination skin. This skin type is characterised by extreme sensitivity. It is a genetic characteristic, in the sense that it is acquired from birth and cannot be changed.

Here are the characteristics of sensitive skin:

It is more fragile than normal skin and tends to develop wrinkles early.
It reacts quickly to physical or chemical agents.
It is prone to developing allergies, redness, irritation, itching and rashes.

The skin barrier and Korean cleansers: why they are better for sensitive skin.

The first and most important function of the skin is to act as a barrier against potentially dangerous external agents such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and all pollutants in the air. This task is performed by a layer composed of water and lipids. This is sebum, fat produced by the sebaceous glands. Overdoing it with scrubs or certain types of soap, those that are too basic or alkaline, can contribute to unbalancing the balance of the lipid barrier and depriving it of its natural oils.

SOS sensitive skin: the characteristics of the perfect cleanser.

The perfect cleanser for sensitive skin is the Korean cleanser: it is gentle and removes impurities effectively, but without attacking the skin barrier and depriving it of its natural moisturising principles.

In particular:

It is rich in humectants to maintain the skin’s optimal moisture level.
Respects the skin’s natural, slightly acidic pH.
It contains calming and decongesting ingredients such as Centella asiatica and Madecassoside and prebiotics to create a healthy microbiome.

Cleansing and sensitive skin: mistakes to avoid.

The watchword is gentleness. Avoid cleansers that are too aggressive, with chemical substances that deprive the skin of its properties and can cause redness, flaking and allergic reactions.
