MorningtonTips #1 - Sensitive skin - How should we do our skin care?


Having sensitive skin is a nightmare for many people, causing them to always be in a state of fear and hesitation when choosing to use cosmetics or come into contact with the outside environment. So how to care for sensitive skin effectively and safely? Let's solve this problem with Mornington Spa! 


Sensitive skin is a type of skin that is easily irritated by external factors such as weather, cosmetics, food,... 

Sensitive skin can be identified by the following signs:

  • The skin is susceptible to redness, itching, stinging, and burning.

  • Skin is prone to dryness and peeling.

  • Skin is easily irritated by cosmetics, food,...

  • Skin is prone to acne and dermatitis.


Causes of sensitive skin

There are many causes of skin sensitivity, including:

  • Genetics: Sensitive skin can be inherited from parents.

  • Hormonal changes: during puberty, pregnancy, menopause,... can also make the skin more sensitive.

  • Inappropriate use of cosmetics: Cosmetic products contain fragrances, preservatives,... that can cause skin irritation.

  • Exposure to irritants: Harsh weather, dust, heat,... can also cause skin irritation.


Things to keep in mind when caring for sensitive skin:

  • Choose a gentle cleanser: 

Cleanser is the first step in the skin care routine. For sensitive skin, you should choose a cleanser that is free of soap, fragrance, and alcohol. Soap can be drying and irritating, and fragrance, alcohol can trigger allergic reactions.

Some gentle facial cleansers you can refer to include:

  • Ultra Calming Cleanser comes from Dermalogica.

This facial cleanser has a gentle formula that does not contain soap, fragrance, colorants, etc., helping to clean the skin without causing irritation.

  • Mesoestetic Purifying Mousse Cleanser.

The product has a gentle formula, does not contain harsh detergents, helps clean the skin effectively without causing irritation.


  • Do not use cleanser multiple times a day: 

Sensitive skin only needs to be washed twice a day, in the morning and evening. Overwashing can strip the skin of its natural oils, which can make it more sensitive.

  • Moisturize regularly: 

Moisturizing is essential for keeping sensitive skin hydrated and protected. Use a moisturizer that is hypoallergenic and fragrance-free.


Some types of essences and creams suitable for sensitive skin you can refer to:

  • Moisturizing and soothing Calm Water Gel from Dermalogica

This gel-based moisturizing solution has a light, easy-to-absorb texture, with dual Hyaluronic Acid technology that works at different skin surface layers to enhance hydration and lock in moisture.

  • Dermalogica’s Ultra Calming Serum Concentrate

Ultra-concentrated serum helps soothe the skin, reduce itching, redness, irritation, restore and protect delicate skin, and reduce stress on the skin.

  • Fast Skin Repair Mesoestetic Moisturizer

This will help to soothe the skin, reduce irritation, restore skin quickly, reduce itching and redness, and increase moisture to each cell.

  • Avoid irritants: 

Irritants can trigger symptoms of sensitive skin. Common irritants include:

  • Harsh soaps and detergents

  • Fragranced products

  • Alcohol

  • Sun exposure

  • Stress


To avoid skin irritants, you need to:

  • Use sunscreen every day, even when indoors.
