Our Favorite Allergy-Tested Skin-Care Products for Sensitive Skin
When it comes to creating a skin-care lineup, it’s not just your skin type that you need to think about. You also need to consider skin sensitivities or allergies. That’s right, allergies don’t just come in the form of sneezing and itchy eyes. For some, certain products, including face serums, moisturizers or body lotions can cause redness, irritation, itchiness or even a rash. In an effort to help you stock up gentle, soothing skin-care that is safe for use on sensitive skin (and in honor of World Allergy Day!), we’re rounding up some of our favorite allergy-tested skin-care products from our parent company L’Oréal that you can find on Amazon, ahead.
This paraben-, fragrance- and preservative-free daily moisturizer was designed with sensitive skin in mind. The gentle formula contains squalane, the brand’s Probiotic Thermal Water and glycerin to help hydrate, soothe and soften the skin. It’s dermatologist- and allergy-tested too, so it’s a great pick for allergy-prone sensitive skin types.
Want to brighten up your complexion for summer? Try incorporating an allergy-tested vitamin C serum into your routine, like this affordable option from CeraVe. Formulated with l-ascorbic acid, ceramides, hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5, this antioxidant-rich serum works to even skin tone, improve skin texture, hydrate and provide a more radiant complexion.
Sunscreen is a must, especially for summer. If you’re looking for a non-irritating moisturizer and sunscreen duo, try this anti-aging option from Vichy. It’s formula provides broad-spectrum SPF 30 protection from UVA and UVB rays, as well as phyto peptides and vitamin C to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and dark spots.
If your under-eye area is dry and sensitive to skin-care products, we recommend trying this allergy-tested eye cream from La Roche-Posay. The hydrating and soothing cream helps reinforce the skin’s moisture barrier around the eye, feels light and calming upon application and is formulated without irritants like fragrance, alcohol, parabens and colorants.
Skin feeling dry? Give these ampoules a go. In just seven days you’ll notice visibly plumped and more hydrated skin. When used twice daily, the intense hyaluronic acid formula smooths, revitalizes and comforts your complexion.
For a gel-based, allergy-tested moisturizer that works for sensitive skin, we suggest giving this option from Garnier a try. It’s rose water and hyaluronic acid-infused formula smells refreshing and hydrates skin without leaving behind a greasy residue. It feels lightweight, is fast-absorbing and is made without parabens, oils, dyes and phthalates.
Formulated with shea butter, glycerin and antioxidants, this allergy-tested night cream helps defend skin against external aggressors like free radicals and delivers intense, soothing hydration overnight. Not only will this moisturizer provide instant comfort for dry skin, but it’s also non-comedogenic, making it a great option for those with problematic skin.
