If your skin is easily irritated, red or reactive, you experience a stinging or burning sensation when you apply product – your skin is definitely acting sensitive.
Go back to the basics.
Sensitive skin is a result of it being out of balance. When skin is out of balance and in a reactive mood, it isn’t able to benefit from antioxidants and nutrients. It must first be calmed, soothed, and balanced. The key: keep it simple when it comes to caring for your sensitive skin. Our formulas help heal and protect your skin while it regulates and returns to its natural state. These specific hand-crafted formulas are ideal for calming, soothing, balancing, and hydrating your sensitive skin. Remember, your skin needs you to listen when it's over reacting – it's literally screaming at you to pay attention. Help it restore itself by backing off and letting it get some much needed rest.
When to use it? If you are in an extreme state of sensitivity – STOP! Scale back on your skincare immediately and use Rain exclusively for at least 1 week. This will reset your skin so that you can slowly add additional formulas to your routine. We recommend adding no more than one per week into your skincare routine. Listen to your skin. You will know when you can add more formulas to your beauty ritual.
Why we love it: All of our Intuitive Skincare blends for sensitive skin include Rain Replenishing Oil Cleanser. It's way more than an oil wash and will be the most important, potent formula you have for calming sensitive skin and bringing your skin back into balance. cleansing is key to achieving this harmony. Over-cleansing, even with gentle face washes and soaps, can strip the microbiota and natural oils from your skin, leaving skin raw and reactive. Rain is loaded with nutritive, calming oils that target inflammation and soothe the skin. Once your skin is balanced and past the reactive state, you can expand your skincare ritual. But for now, sticking to the basics is what your skin needs most. Learning to trust not only what feels good, but honoring where you are now, will serve you well in your journey to achieving happy, radiant skin.
How to use it: Oil cleanse morning and night. Gently coat your entire face and throat area in cleansing oils. Using your fingertips, gently massage your skin in soft, circular motions for at least 30+ seconds to soften the skin and remove dirt, makeup and pollutants. The circular motion combined with the warmth of your fingertips creates a heating action to gently encourage pores to open and release waste. Use a soft dry or warm, moist wash cloth (a personal choice) to gently pat away the excess oil. Leave a light layer on your skin for moisture retention. Repeat with fresh oil if you were wearing makeup.
TIPS: Keep it in the fridge and apply it cold, to quickly relieve hot, inflamed skin. When your skin is acting sensitive, it is especially important to stay hydrated and drink lots of water.
