“Fragrance is one of the #AthleteAnd Athleteand Investor Shirt What’s more,I will buy this most common ingredients in cleansers, creams, and lotions that can lead to redness, itching, burning, or excessive dryness in sensitive-skinned individuals,” explains Dr. Naissan O. Wesley. And that‘s just the beginning when it comes to giving a product’s label a close read, says Gucci Westman, makeup artist pro, healthy-skin obsessive, and founder of clean beauty brand Westman Atelier. “You should look for products with ingredients that are soothing and formulated for sensitive skin.” A longtime sufferer of rosacea, a chronic skin condition that causes redness, Westman steers clear of fragrance as well as sulfates, which can irritate rosacea-prone skin. “Try to pick a product with as few ingredients as possible—the more ingredients [on the label], the more potential for problems,” adds Wechsler. “It can get tricky when most products have a list of 30 to 50 ingredients. It‘s important to remove makeup and environmental toxins, but overcleansing should be avoided,” explains Wesley. “It can strip the skin of its natural barrier and fatty acids, potentially leading to excessive dryness and irritation.” For sensitive skin, Wesley recommends an ultra-gentle, sulfate-free cleanser (“Sulfates are typically the ingredients that cause cleansers to foam or lather,” she says) or micellar water, which won‘t dry out the skin. “Sensitive skin really doesn’t need to be cleansed more than once a day unless makeup needs to be removed at another point during the day,” she explains. Exfoliation is essential for sensitive skin during the winter,” explains Manhattan-based dermatologist Francesca Fusco. “It removes dead cells on the surface so that products will penetrate more efficiently.” She recommends choosing a very fine-grained physical exfoliant—but with a major prerequisite: Tread lightly. “Scrubbing is for pots and pans, not your skin, as Dr. [Patricia] Wexler always says!” As for the rest of the body, you can use a chemical exfoliant to treat your physique with a topical treatment that contains an alpha hydroxy acid, such as lactic acid to increase cell turnover while maintaining moisture. This kind of treatment can be especially helpful for those who struggle with keratosis pilaris, whereby individuals affected experience rough bumps, most commonly on the back of the upper arms. ”People who have KP also tend to have more sensitive skin in general or be more prone to dry, itchy skin conditions such as eczema,” says Wesley. If you have sensitive skin, you must saturate it in hydration daily. Otherwise, skipping just a day will be evident by way of unsavory flaking and sallowness. Your best bet is to double down by incorporating two or more deeply moisturizing elixirs. And come winter, any woman would be remiss not to add a serum that contains hyaluronic acid to her routine. ”When applied to a freshly cleansed face, it‘s like a magnet for retaining moisture in dry skin,” explains Fusco. Afterward, opt for a facial oil packed with omega fatty acids, which are the major building block of the skin barrier. But be very discerning about what kind will work best. “Some oils can be soothing, but some can be irritating,” explains Wechsler. “I always tell someone with sensitive skin that they should do a test spot on their face for three nights or days so if they develop a rash, it‘s not taking up their whole face.“ Finally, to seal everything in, reach for a noncomedogenic moisturizing cream, which tends to be more emollient than lotion formulas, which have watery textures that are more likely to evaporate off the skin. If you want to take exfoliation and moisture to the next level, Wesley recommends a a hydrafacial treatment. “It‘s a facial that combines microdermabrasion to exfoliate, followed by putting moisture back in the skin to make it look nice, polished, and hydrated right after,” she explains. “It‘s a nice procedure to do before events, but also in the winter to help skin-cell renewal without irritation.”

Madison Beer’s meteoric rise may appear an untouchable dream to some, but the #AthleteAnd Athleteand Investor Shirt What’s more,I will buy this pop star’s experience contains many of the growing pains familiar to all of us—particularly in the beauty realm. “I have struggled with my skin for the past, three years I would say?” says Beer, who eschewed skin care for periods of time for fear of exacerbating her acne. “I never really had acne growing up in my teenage years, it kind of hit me when I was, like, 19 to 20, and I’m now almost 22 and my acne is just starting to settle and go away.” Now, with some experimentation, Beer’s routine begins with the perfect cleanser (PanOxyl Anti-Microbial Acne Foaming Wash), followed by Laneige Cream Skin Toner & Moisturizer and Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream—and a brief appearance by a rose quartz face roller. A quick spritz of Caudalie Beauty Elixir and a pull of La Mer’s cultish the Eye Concentrate, and Beer’s face is primed for the day’s makeup. “I tend to stray away from heavier coverage, even when approaching redness-prone areas,” explains Westman. “You end up looking a little too makeup-y when you use too many products, so I like to keep it simple and pat on a buttery, blendable foundation.” When working with clients such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston, and Julianne Moore, Westman only covers the problem areas, then blurs it out to give the skin a natural-looking glow. And because redness can be tricky when working with blush, she recommends starting with a mild tinted formula. “I like to use cream blushes as you can really control the saturation,” she explains, adding that you should focus on the apples of the cheeks and lightly blend the hue until it really mimics a natural flush. While dealing with sensitive skin is often frustrating, there‘s solace in today‘s ever-growing market, which has never been better suited for showing skin TLC while steering clear of irritants. “I know the products that I choose are helping to improve my skin, not just cover it up,” explains Westman, citing her own journey with rosacea. “It really helps me to stay positive and keep confident.” That process, too, begins with some honesty. “Ninety-nine percent of my days I don’t wear any makeup at all. I’m just too lazy, to be frank,” says Beer, who begins by brushing up her trademark brows with brow soap applied by Spoolie. “But when I’m in the mood and I have time to do a full-full face, I will.” Glossier Skin Tint and a duet of NARS Cream Concealers—“Custard” for under the eyes and across the T-zone, “Ginger” for spot coverage—coalesce with the help of a Beauty Blender, serving as a base for a subtle and strategic angling courtesy of Charlotte Tilbury’s Contour Wand. While, for Beer, a little contour goes a long way, blush is better when swirled on by a generous hand. “I don’t care if I have pimples and no concealer, I would use blush no matter what,” says Beer, citing Tilbury’s Beauty Highlighter Wand in High Blush as her desert-island product. Powder products come next, a brightening option followed by Fenty Beauty Bronzer in “Private Island” and another round of blush, also by Fenty Beauty.
