Facials for sensitive skin types
Sensitive skin that’s dry, red and tight can be unpredictable when it comes to reacting with different skincare products. If you’re prepping to do a facial on a client with a sensitive complexion you must tailor your treatment to suit their temperamental skin from the very beginning.
Firstly, always aim to do a patch test if you’re introducing a new product to a client who suffers with sensitive skin. This will help you to pick up on any contraindications, rule out any formulations that exacerbate sensitivity and protect you in terms of your beauty insurance.
Gentle skincare products that combine natural ingredients tend to work best on sensitive skin types. For example, the manuka honey found in our Miracle Mask is perfect for nourishing parched skin and lending it a well-moisturised feel and appearance. It can also reduce redness and puffiness while re-balancing the skin’s natural characteristics. Plus the combination of oat kernel oil and bisabol is the perfect remedy for sensitive and irritated skin — this duo is anti-inflammatory, anti-irritant and instantly conditioning, making it the ideal salve for all skin types.
