If your skin tends to freak out when you try new products (see: it burns, itches, or gets red), that's a sign that it\u2019s sensitive. And if you fall into this category, you\u2019re part of a growing club. Stats have shown that more and more women label their skin as sensitive, and thus are paying closer attention to what kinds of products they slather on. It\u2019s true that what you put on your face matters, but to get the best results, you also gotta be consistent with your routine (yes, even when you\u2019re freakin\u2019 exhausted). The next time you\u2019re tempted to hop into bed without giving your complexion the proper TLC, consider this: \u201cWe spend one third of our lives sleeping, so if you don\u2019t take care of your skin at night, that\u2019s a lost opportunity,\u201d says dermatologist Vivian Shi, an assistant professor at the University of Arizona. Luckily, \u201ccare\u201d doesn\u2019t mean an elaborate, multi-step regimen. Here\u2019s the easy P.M. process that\u2019ll give you amazing results. Step 1: Cleanse Gently A soap-free lotion or cream cleanser is the best option for keeping sensitive skin happy. \u201cCreamy cleansers don\u2019t bubble up, so they won\u2019t strip the oil from your skin,\u201d says Dr. Shi. Bonus: Rich textures feel so luxe while you\u2019re massaging them in. Try a soothing formula that doesn\u2019t contain any harsh irritants, like Burt\u2019s Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser . It\u2019s made with skin-softening cotton extract and gets rid of makeup and dirt without that tight, uncomfortable effect that sudsy face washes can produce. Unlike mornings, which can be frantic, there\u2019s no need to rush at night. Take your time while rubbing the cleanser into your skin, making sure to cover your whole face. \u201cStart with the forehead and work your way down, then splash and rinse well until there\u2019s no residue,\u201d says Dr. Shi. Or, pretend that your bathroom is a spa and press a warm, damp washcloth against your face. Let the cleanser dissolve for a few seconds, then gently whisk it away. Step 2: Pamper Your Eyes The eye contour area is the thinnest and the most fragile skin on your face, so you need a nourishing eye cream to moisturize and protect it. \u201cI definitely recommend using one, especially for sensitive skin types, which are often drier and more prone to allergen entry to begin with,\u201d says Dr. Shi. Go with a lightweight, hypoallergenic option like Burt\u2019s Bees Sensitive Eye Cream , which helps to shield the eye area from potential irritants (another great benefit of the cotton extract). Contrary to popular belief, \u201cEye products should be applied before you put moisturizer on the rest of your face,\u201d says Dr. Shi. Dabbing on eye treatments first allows them to penetrate more effectively. Pat your cream all around your contours with your ring finger (it applies the least amount of pressure) until it\u2019s fully melted into your skin. Step 3: Lock in Moisture One good reason to use a heavier moisturizer in the evening: \u201cSkin is the most vulnerable at night when the barrier function is the least effective. It doesn\u2019t have the same defense mechanisms as we do during day, so it needs extra protection,\u201d says Dr. Shi. She suggests scanning labels for soothing ingredients like rice extract and moisturizing natural oils that can also help with issues specific to sensitive skin. Try a deeply hydrating formula like Burt\u2019s Bees Sensitive Night Cream , made with aloe and sunflower seed oil, which have anti-inflammatory properties. Step 4: Clear the Air \u201cPeople who have sensitive skin can experience airborne contact dermatitis, meaning you get an allergy or skin inflammation not from something that you directly applied, but from what\u2019s in the air," says Dr. Shi. The solution is simple: Sleep with an air filter in your bedroom to zap dust particles. Dr. Shi also suggests keeping your windows shut. \u201cWho knows what\u2019s coming in at night, especially if you live in a polluted region of the world,\u201d she explains. Follow her advice and you\u2019re sure to rest easy\u2014and wake up with great skin.
