Skincare routine for sensitive skin

1. Cleansing

The perfect option for cleansing sensitive skin would be the tilk! Lab moisturising black garlic cleansing cream with mallow plant. Black garlic helps deeply nourish the skin, takes part in the synthesis of collagen, and protects the skin against the negative effects of the environment. Mallow moisturises and tones the skin while also alleviating the negative effects of ultraviolet radiation, which could irritate sensitive skin. 

In addition to the cleansing cream, another cleansing option that can take great care of sensitive skin is the Hydrate & Cleanse oil cleanser with almond oil. The oil cleanser contains vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals that nourish and moisturise the skin, give it a beautiful complexion and keep the skin young. The oil cleanser is a great moisturiser thanks to rich hemp seed and pumpkin seed oil. The oil cleanser also helps balance the skin as these oils have a high saturation of vitamin E, zinc, and essential fatty acids omega-3 and omega-5.

2. Toner and refreshment

Our Spray Me refreshing spray with Aloe vera, probiotics, and tea tree oil is a great option for taking care of and refreshing sensitive skin. The probiotics in Aloe vera help to maintain the skin’s natural moisture level, balance the skin’s microflora and slow down the premature ageing process. Aloe vera, which is filled with natural antioxidants, has excellent cooling and deep moisturising properties.

Another option that would suit sensitive skin well is the tilk! Lab moisturising turmeric face tonic with vitamin B5.  The chamazulene in camomile flowers fights inflammation, alleviates dryness and heals damaged tissues.  Camomile softens and renews skin, heals itchiness, comedones, and acne. Vitamin B5 with its great benefits is deeply nourishing, helps the sensitive skin restore and calms it.

3. Exfoliating

In addition to daily cleansing and moisturising, it is important to offer the facial skin some extra attention and care by exfoliating and applying a mask.

To provide deep treatment for your sensitive skin from the comfort of your home we recommend the Peel Me peeling AHA mask with passion fruit oil. The peeling AHA mask evens the skin tone and texture, smooths fine lines, restores the skin, brightens the complexion and moisturises. Aloe vera and sea buckthorn oil restore the structure and complexion of the skin and provide the skin with the necessary vitamins, minerals, and useful fatty acids. Coconut oil, calendula, lady’s mantle and common horsetail soothe and nourish the skin deeply.

Our recommendation for sensitive skin is to use the Peel Me peeling AHA mask 1-2 times per week.

Our tilk! Lab skincare series includes a great exfoliating option for sensitive skin – the delicate deep cleansing face exfoliator with black garlic and juniper for all skin types. The exfoliator helps the rejuvenation of the skin, offers the skin deeply nourishing refreshment, helps prevent subcutaneous blockages, and cleans already clogged pores. The antioxidants from black garlic support the renewal process and restoration of the skin while protecting it from the effects of the environment. The other superstar in this product is juniper, which helps cool, soften and refresh the skin, and has anti-inflammatory properties. 

We recommend using the black garlic and juniper exfoliator 2 times per week for sensitive skin.

4. Mask

Sensitive skin can benefit from the regular use of a suitable mask, we recommend using the tilk! Lab calming face mask with black garlic and sage. Sage is anti-inflammatory and antibacterial, it boosts up the skin’s metabolic processes and fights free radicals, protecting the skin from inflammation and helping the fight against inflammatory processes that have already started. The antioxidants from curcumin are important for healing and restoring the skin. Another very important role in the mask is played by Estonian garlic, fermented according to Korean traditions, which has become black garlic in the process. The bioactive ingredients in black garlic help renew and restore the skin, and protect it from the negative effects of the environment. 

We recommend using the face mask 2 times per week for sensitive skin.

5. Moisturising

Sensitive skin needs moisturising as all skin types, but it has to be done with the right type of products not to irritate it. We would recommend trying our tilk! Lab calming black garlic and hemp face cream that is made specifically for sensitive skin. The cream does not include any essential oils and the natural ingredients have been specially picked to provide sensitive and delicate skin maximum protection, moisturisation, and care. The black garlic in this cream offers skin nourishment and protection, including antioxidants, renewing skin and fighting the effects of the environment. Coconut oil offers skin moisturisation, elasticity and alleviates irritation. Hemp oil includes necessary fatty acids, which nourish and moisturise dry and sensitive skin.

Another great option for sensitive skin would be the calming and moisturising face cream with spruce and sea buckthorn from our tilk! Forest range. This face cream with spruce and sea buckthorn is suitable for moisturising and calming the skin, and for alleviating inflammations. Sea buckthorn oil supports the benefits of spruce, as it is rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants; it helps skin to renew and heals damaged skin. Skin is nourished, made more elastic, and moisturised by the combination of coconut, sesame, and almond oil. The cream does not include any essential oils and the delicate smell comes from the natural ingredients.

Another cream that suits sensitive skin and that has been one of our customer favourites is the Protect Me face cream with calendula for sensitive skin. The moisturising cream’s bioactive ingredients calendula, chamomile, cowslip and Aloe vera calm and balance irritated skin. Aloe vera also provides natural sun protection. Cowslip helps lighten pigmentation, supports the production of collagen, thus supporting the effect of Vitamin E which helps slow down the ageing process of cells. Vitamin E found in almond oil renews, nourishes, softens and smooths the skin while vitamin-rich coconut oil and organic beeswax create a protective layer to prevent harmful effects of the external environment. No essential oils have been added to the cream – the mild aroma comes solely from natural ingredients.
