The Best Serums for Sensitive Skin

If you’re struggling with sensitivity and irritation, finding the right face serum can help skin feel soothed, shielded and hydrated. Keep reading to discover exactly what causes sensitive skin and find the best serum for sensitive skin from No7.  

What causes sensitive skin? 

While sensitive skin is often genetic, skin sensitivity can be triggered by environmental stressors and a damaged skin barrier.  

Aging skin is also naturally more prone to sensitivity, as skin becomes drier and thinner with age and more vulnerable to external irritants.  

Why serums benefit sensitive skin 

Finding the best face serum for sensitive skin is key to keeping skin hydrated and feeling healthy, without causing irritation.  

The best serum for sensitive skin will gently penetrate the skin’s surface, providing a soothing burst of moisture, while addressing specific skin concerns.  

How to find the best serum for sensitive skin 

To find the best serum for sensitive skin, assess what other skin concerns need addressing. Hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid can help with dry sensitive skin, while brightening ingredients like Vitamin C can help with dull sensitive skin. To reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, opt for formulas with anti-aging ingredients, such as peptides and antioxidants.
