Top 5 Ingredients for Sensitive Skin

Reading time: 7 min

Does your skin ever feel like it's throwing a tantrum? It might be a sign of sensitivity. Don't worry, you're not alone!  Millions worldwide deal with sensitive skin, which can react to anything from harsh weather to fragranced products. Afflictions like rosacea, eczema, and psoriasis often fall into the sensitive skin side, but all skin types can exhibit sensitivity at some point due to external factors like pollution, weather changes, diet, or some not-so-friendly ingredients in beauty products. Either way, there’s nothing to worry about! Your life doesn’t necessarily have to be an ongoing skincare crisis. While there is no way to tackle our sensitivity completely, there are many ways to help balance and soothe even the most delicate complexions.

The key? Picking the right ingredients for your delicate complexion. Here at Jess Beauty, we're all about gentle yet effective skincare, and today we're revealing the top 5 superstar ingredients that will calm, soothe, and strengthen your sensitive skin like never before. Keep reading and embark on this beauty journey with us!

#1: Squalane

Your skin's BFF for gentle moisture magic

Let's kick things off with a skincare superhero – squalene! Imagine your skin's natural moisture barrier as a cozy blanket. When it's damaged (which can happen due to sensitivity), your skin feels dry, itchy, and irritated. That's where squalane comes in, acting like a superhero cape for your barrier. This plant-based hero is incredibly similar to the natural oils your skin already produces, so it absorbs beautifully without clogging pores. Bonus points: squalane is lightweight and non-comedogenic (meaning it won't break you out!). 

Jess Beauty's Face Reset Cleanser incorporates this super ingredient beautifully, making it the ideal match for all skin types, especially sensitive ones. Enriched with squalane and coconut-derived ingredients, this cleanser not only protects your skin's outer barrier but also locks in moisture, alleviates inflammation, and soothes your skin. Remember, a little kindness goes a long way when it comes to sensitive skin. Be gentle, choose the right products, and embrace the glow!

#2: Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea)

Nature's antioxidant powerhouse

Next up, we have the ever-so-soothing green tea extract, also known as camellia sinensis. Green tea isn't just for sipping anymore! This powerhouse ingredient is packed with antioxidants called polyphenols, which fight free radicals that damage your skin and contribute to redness and irritation. And it doesn't stop there. It's also a natural anti-inflammatory, meaning it can help calm down any flare-ups your sensitive skin might be experiencing. 

So, whether you're dealing with rosacea or simply want to calm down post-summer sunburn, incorporating green tea extract into your skincare routine will leave your complexion feeling fresh, rejuvenated, and radiant.

A perfect way to slip camellia sinensis into your routine is with our moisturizing Post Workout Gel Mask. Enriched with green tea, niacinamide, and centella asiatica, this dynamic trio works together to amplify your skin's radiance, providing extended moisture and nutrition daily. 

#3: Niacinamide

The multi-tasking wonder

Now, let's talk about niacinamide – the multi-tasking wonder that deserves a spot in every skincare routine. Also known as vitamin B3, niacinamide addresses a multitude of skin concerns, making it perfect for sensitive skin types who want maximum results with minimal fuss. From reducing inflammation and controlling sebum production to minimizing pore size and improving skin texture, niacinamide does it all – and then some! Plus, it plays well with other ingredients, making it the ultimate team player in your skincare arsenal.

Add some extra hydration to your routine with our Shine Bright Serum, a powerhouse enriched with niacinamide and tranexamic acid. This serum not only hydrates but also breathes new life into your skin, putting up a strong defense against discoloration, dark patches, and uneven skin tone.

#4: Centella Asiatica

Soothing relief for stressed-out complexions

Oh, centella asiatica – the beloved herb of traditional Asian medicine that steals the spotlight as a superstar ingredient in the K-Beauty world. And it's no wonder why! Of course, here at Jess Beauty, as creators and devotees of Korean skincare, we hold it near and dear to our hearts.

Fondly known as "tiger grass" (because legend has it that wounded tigers rolled in it to heal their battle scars), this powerhouse boasts remarkable healing properties for sensitive, irritated skin. Rich in amino acids, vitamins, and antioxidants, it also works wonders in soothing inflammation, speeding up wound healing, stimulating collagen production, and restoring your skin's natural barrier. 

Say goodbye to redness and hello to a complexion that's as calm as a zen garden with our Centella Asiática powered Face Ritual Bundle! Elevate your skincare routine with this carefully curated collection of three essential products, designed to cleanse, hydrate, and rejuvenate your skin. Check it out!

#4: Bakuchiol

The retinol alternative for sensitive skin

We all know retinol is a game-changer for wrinkles and fine lines. But for those with sensitive skin, it can be a bit too harsh. Enter bakuchiol, a plant-derived ingredient with similar benefits to retinol, but without the irritation. It works by stimulating collagen production and cell turnover, leading to smoother, brighter skin. Plus, it has anti-inflammatory properties, making it a great choice for sensitive skin types. 

Opting for a lower retinol concentration lets your skin adapt gradually, minimizing significantly the risk of facing these potential side effects. In terms of application, start by using it just two or three times a week initially, gradually increasing the frequency as your skin becomes more tolerant. 



Jess Beauty’s Age Rewind Retinol Serum is the perfect serum to kickstart your retinol journey. Specially formulated for all skin types, this formula enriched with bakuchiol, niacinamide, and panthenol works harmoniously to provide nourishment and hydration, leaving your skin smoother, brighter, and more youthful. Experience the transformation and witness the results unfold day by day!
