If you have sensitive skin, you’ll need to be aware of your environment as it might affect your skin. Stress, dehydration, dust and even the weather might trigger the sensitivity of your skin. These could result in your face feeling tight, having an uneven texture of flakiness, dryness or red patches. However, such flare-ups can be avoided by using the right products to deliver hydration to your skin type.

We all know that Miranda Kerr has skin that is to die for! She also swears by her brand, Kora Organics. Their soothing moisturiser is suitable for daily use on sensitive skin. It contains ingredients such as chamomile and lavender that are certified organic to reduce redness caused by sensitive skin.
Best tinted moisturiser with SPF
Price from RM132.00
If you’re just like me who have sensitive skin and dislike wearing foundation but still want a little coverage, go for this tinted moisturiser. It also provides 12 hours of hydration as well as SPF 30. The moisturiser contains Allantoin and Colloidal Oatmeal, two ingredients that help soothe and calm sensitive skin.
A gel moisturiser is better for sensitive combination skin because it doesn’t add extra oil to the skin but instead, hydrates the skin without any greasiness. Biotherm’s Aquasource gel is a great match for such skin types. It plumps up the skin and keeps it hydrated for up to 48 hours after application.
