Is Sensitive skin your middle name? 
Sensitive skin can be characterized by one or more of the following: red, blotchy, thin-skinned and easily irritated. Lay your frustrations aside and check out six simple steps to do a Do-It-Yourself Facial specifically designed for easily irritated skin.

1. Cleanse
Start off by washing your face with our Cream Soap. If you are wearing heavier makeup, use our Cleansing Milk with Carnation & Rice Oil to ensure all traces of makeup are removed.

2. Mask
Apply a thin layer of Azulene Calming Mask and leave it on for about 15-20 minutes. Rinse with tepid water.

3. Tone
Using a cotton ball or wipe, apply our Chamomile Cleansing Lotion on your face and neck.

4. Treatment
If you are more dry/sensitive, try our Rose Hips Nourishing Oil. If your skin is more oily/sensitive, apply our Herbal Hydrating Serum after Step 5.

5. Moisturize
Apply our Oil Free Moisturizer if you are more oily/sensitive or Kera Moisturizer if you are more dry/sensitive. If your skin is combination/sensitive, try the Buttermilk Moisturizer.

6. Eye Cream
With your ring finger, apply a very small amount of Chamomile Eye Cream on the orbital bone (the part that lies between the high cheek bone and under-eye area).

  1. Do you have a recommendation for a mask other than the Azulene Calming Mask? I’m allergic to Balsam of Peru (which is in all the calming products..or the irony) and I’ve been able to find an MB replacement for everything but my mask.

    • If you’re allergic to Balsam Peru, try our Enzyme Revitalizing Mask or our Gingko Mask instead–they are both for dry/sensitive skin types. If your skin is more oily, try our Cucumber Tonic Mask.
