Working backstage as a makeup artist, it’s really important that my products are suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. It’s no good relying on my personal favourite moisturiser if there’s a chance that it could bring a model out in a rash or cause redness or irritation. So, as a MUA, finding effective skincare that’s great for dry or delicate skin is an absolute must. It can be a case of trial and error in terms of what works for you, but it’s often best to stick to natural, organic ingredients, but to also play it cautiously with essential oils, which can cause flair-ups in some skin types. If you’re looking for the best moisturiser for sensitive skin, try these options on for size…
