 A Skincare Routine for Sensitive Skin

A Skincare Routine for Sensitive Skin

By TEAM STURM

19th Nov 2021

If you have sensitive skin, you’ll probably notice your complexion tends to be more reactive than average; for example, it might become irritated by the sun or cold, skincare ingredients or even emotional stressors. These can all manifest in mild redness, stinging, burning and itchiness or in more extreme cases, rosacea, eczema, and psoriasis. Avoiding irritants such as sulfates, color, alcohol and abrasive ingredients and treatments while living an anti-inflammatory lifestyle (enough sleep and a healthy, balanced diet) can all help, as can adopting a skincare routine tailored towards sensitivity.  While all Dr. Sturm products are suitable for sensitive skin, a routine designed to address hypersensitivity is key to keeping irritation at bay.

This SENSITIVE SKIN ROUTINE includes products formulated with healing and nourishing ingredients that retain moisture and replenish and strengthen the lipid barrier, whilst immediately soothing irritation for a calmer complexion.

Discover the Sensitive Skin Routine

Step 1

CLEANSER

A lightweight, foam texture that gently removes makeup, pollutants, and impurities without upsetting the skin's natural pH balance. Aloe Vera helps to soothe and repair the skin. Pump a little foam into the palm of your hand and smooth over your face using circular movements. Then rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water.

Step 2

ENZYME CLEANSER

A softly grained powder that exfoliates the skin using Subtilisin and Lipase enzymes whilst decongesting pores. Mix a coin-sized amount of powder into the palm of your hand, add lukewarm water to work into a gentle foam and smooth generously over your face to create a soft foam, before rinsing. Regular use results in smooth, refreshed skin. 

Step 3

BALANCING TONER

Apply a couple of pumps of the Toner to cotton pads and apply to the skin in upwards motions. Dr. Sturm’s formulation rebalances skin’s pH which is especially important after using tap water and contains Beta-Glucan and Panthenol which help soothe and hydrate the skin.

Step 4

FACE MASK

Leave the mask on the skin for fifteen minutes and whilst it’s working, use this time to take a nap or meditate. Once fifteen minutes is up, you can remove the mask by gently peeling and rubbing it off the skin for an extra glow – or if you prefer, with warm water and a washcloth.

Step 5

HYALURONIC SERUM

Dr. Sturm’s HYALURONIC SERUM floods skin with hydration at both the surface and deeper layers, while delivering active ingredients that nourish skin and counteract oxidative damage. Apply a few drops of the serum evenly to your face, eye area and neck before gently patting it in. 

Step 6

CALMING SERUM

Known as Dr. Sturm’s “house pharmacy” the CALMING SERUM is packed with active ingredients to soothe and rebalance irritated skin and is perfect for soothing your complexion after sun exposure, shaving, sleep loss, jet lag, air conditioning or environmental pollution. Apply daily or when experiencing redness or irritation.

Step 7

EYE CREAM

A unique, pudding-like texture that's super soothing on the skin, Dr. Sturm's EYE CREAM is packed with powerful ingredients that help smooth fine lines, reduce dark circles and ease puffiness. Apply it around the delicate eye area and massage any excess into your lips and neck.

Step 8

FACE CREAM

An ultra-hydrating, fast-absorbing formula that’s packed with potent ingredients to help calm irritation, this FACE CREAM is a must for anyone experiencing skin sensitivity and delivers deep hydration and instant skin radiance with a non-greasy, velvety texture. Apply to the face, neck and décolleté.
