Sensitive Skin Saviours

As winter fast approaches, sensitive skin can suffer, with harsher weather and central heating to name only two common skin aggravators.  But fear not if you have sensitive skin, because there is a UK brand for you, and as UK brands go, they don’t get much better than this.

Pai Skincare is noted by beauty editors for being organic, handmade and boasting beautiful packaging. UK Soil Association certified, chemical free, cruelty free and suitable for vegans, this brand scores highly on all fronts. 

First, cleanse with the much loved Pai Camellia & Rose Organic Cleanser (£25) Our customers adore this product- check out our incredible reviews. Gentle yet effective, and complete with Muslin Cloth, this cleanser lifts away dirt and make up with ease leaving skin smooth and fresh. And yes, sensitive skin can use this too! 

Follow with a refreshing toner. Pai Lotus & Orange Blossom BioAffinity Toner (£30) is ideal for dry, sensitive and rosacea skin, whereas Pai Rice Plant & Rosemary BioAffinity Toner (£20) is more suited to combination and sensitive skin. These are alcohol free and should soothe, tone and hydrate.

There are 4 moisturisers to choose from depending on your skin type. My personal choice is Pai Geranium & Thistle Combination Skin Cream (£24), for combination skin. Light in texture, this moisturiser cools and calms my complexion.

If you are a fan of the serum skincare step too, or your skin is just in need of an extra hydration boost, then Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil (£20) is a must. With daily use, this natural serum conditions the skin, improving skin firmness, elasticity and suppleness.  Don’t forget your peepers either; treat them to Pai Echium Organic Eye Cream (£24) to regenerate and firm the delicate eye area.

And finally, carry a little bit of Pai Skincare with you with the perfect handbag companion, the Pai Bergamot Organic Lip Balm (£6) Apply as required to soften and protect dry, chapped lips.
