If you’re looking for a cleanser that’s suitable for sensitive skin types, we’ve got you covered. The SkinMedica Facial Cleanser gently removes environmental pollutants, excess oil and makeup, all while hydrating and refreshing the skin. Our favorite part about the product has to be the Camellia Oleifera Leaf Extract aka “Green Tea.” The catechins in green tea are not only amazing antioxidants, but they also possess magical anti-inflammatory powers. Great for sensitive, acne-prone, and rosacea patients!
This hydrating, soothing gel serum is formulated with botanical ingredients to calm and hydrate skin, while also improving facial redness!

Inspired by the Phyto Corrective Gel, SkinCeuticals took the cooling, calming, and hydrating power of the original formula and doubled the concentration of green botanicals like cucumber, thyme, and olive to create an even more soothing mask. This oil-free goo contains soothing and purifying properties that counteract overheated complexions! If you have rosacea, this product is calling your name.
*PRO TIP*: Leave in the refrigerator for a couple of hours before applying to get even more of a cooling sensation!
One of the most unique products that we’ve seen come on the market is Colorescience’s All Calm. This 3-in-1 proprietary formula immediately neutralizes the appearance of redness, helps sooth and calm sensitive skin, and provides SPF 50 protection while its BioSolace complex helps provide ongoing relief from sensitivity and the appearance of redness. It acts as a great primer for foundation or can also give great coverage on its own!
This is a great product if you have sensitive or blemish-prone skin but still want a gentle exfoliation. The TriAcneal Soothing Lotion by Avene is an intensive clarifying nighttime treatment that reduces the appearance of imperfections while restoring radiant, youthful complexion. Key ingredients include diolenyl, which helps to visibly reduce blemishes and redness while calming skin, retinaldehyde to minimize the appearance of skin imperfections, and a papaya enzyme to exfoliate and smooth while reducing the appearance of blackheads.
*PRO TIP* If a retinol product has never been used before, begin twice a week 2-3 days apart, gradually increasing frequency to every other night, and then advancing to each evening or as tolerated.*
To patients who think this is just bottled water, think again. Its composition is clinically shown to soothe, soften, and calm sensitive skin. The unique thermal water spray instantly sooths skin while reducing burning. This product is ideal for red, sensitive or irritated skin and great for post-workout, travel, outdoor activities or just to freshen up makeup.
DEJ Face Cream is inspired by the Dermal-Epidermal Junction (DEJ), is a factor in skin aging. DEJ Face Cream is a skin-renewing moisturizer that firms, lifts, and smooths the skin. The hero ingredient in this product is Pseudoalteromonas Ferment Extract. One of the great things about this ingredient is that it helps to protect the skin from dryness and redness due to cold weather and also promotes skin regeneration and smoother skin surface by stimulation protein synthesis in the skin. This is all super important stuff from wrinkle-free, young-looking skin!
