The beauty industry nowadays focuses too much on what’s not in the products. Phthalates, sulphates, Parabens, formaldehydes, mineral oils – all have caused their fair share of controversies and have been eliminated from the beauty world mostly for good now.
However, this does not mean that these products are still suitable for those with sensitive skin prone to skin disorders caused by allergies and more. What’s in the products actually makes the products well worthy of use and that’s what needs to be focused on. Here are 6 hypoallergenic beauty products perfect for those with sensitive skin:
COOLA makes some of the best sunscreens out there and for all those concerned, most of their products are hypoallergenic. Our favorite sunscreen, COOLA SPF 50 Classic Face Sport Sunscreen White Tea Moisturizer, happens to be one of them.
The sunscreen is formulated with organic ingredients and helps not only protect and boost your skin’s anti aging defense line but also, provides long lasting hydration. The product has broad spectrum SPF 50, is water resistant and has an invigorating natural white tea scent. The moisturizing sunscreen formula is available in a range of different SPFs and scents including Cucumber, Citrus Mimosa and Fresh Mango. And, ofcourse, an unscented formula for those looking for fragrance-free products.
With winters approaching fast, we are opting for tanners more often than not. And what’s better than a hypoallergenic and Non-Comedogenic formula that’s also transfer and water resistant?
Red Carpet Kolour – Body Glow Light gives a red carpet worthy, sexy glow from head to toe all the while moisturizing, color correcting and softening the appearance of stretch marks, spider veins and age spots.
Removing makeup properly is a crucial step in skincare for flawless skin. Tugging skin while removing makeup with wipes/cotton pads or using harsh, drying products can irritate skin and can cause more harm than good.
What you need is a formula that dissolves makeup without incessant rubbing and tugging and that’s gentle enough to use on all skin types and as many times a day: Bioderma – Sensibio H2O Make-up Removing Micelle Solution.
It’s a cult favorite product of the beauty sphere and is used by beauty bloggers, beauty editors and celebrity MUAs alike. The product revolutionalized makeup removal and made it easy enough so that we could all ditch the wipes once and for all.
The product is also available in a more moisturizing formula for those with dry skin, Bioderma – Hydrabio H2O Moisturising Make-up Removing Micelle Solution.
For those looking for some multi-tasking body products, Whish makes some of the best hypoallergenic shave creams for a smooth, comfortable shave with added skincare benefits.
Whish – Lemongrass Shave Crave Shave Cream not only makes shaving easy but its calming scent helps a stress free start of the day and its soothing properties help soothe muscle aches, ease stiff joint, and improve muscle tone.
For those looking for anti-aging properties, Whish – Pomegranate Shave Crave Shave Cream has revitalizing anti-oxidants to help repair and rejuvenate your skin.
