Written by Anjali AgarwalMay 03, 2019
Sensitive skin is a tough skin type to deal with as it can get uncomfortably dry, red, itchy and a million other things that can leave you feeling frustrated. If only just people were sensitive, and not their skin, right? Anyway, your nightly beauty practices can make a huge difference to your skin. If you are also blessed with sensitive skin (probably why you are reading this), let us help you get your bedtime routine in place so you and your skin feel better and fresh the next morning. Read on and follow these 5 bedtime skincare habits for better skin...

Clean your face

It becomes even more important to cleanse your face thoroughly if you have sensitive skin as product residue can lead to itchiness and dryness. Remove your makeup and cleanse your face with a gentle cleanser like Simple Kind to Skin Moisturising Facial Wash which has no harsh chemicals or soap and is specifically made for sensitive skin.


After you have washed your face, pamper your skin with a cooling face moisturiser. Get your hands on Lakmé 9to5 Naturale Aloe Aqua Gel. It is soothing and lightweight with the goodness of aloe vera that works wonders for sensitive and dry skin.

Apply a face serum

Applying a soothing face serum on your face will heal parched and itchy skin and leave you with a natural glow. We trust Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Reflection Serum, made with mineral-laden glacial water and glycerine. Apply it before you go to bed and wake up to moisturised and glowing skin the next morning.

Calm your eye area

Harsh sun rays, makeup and pollution can affect sensitive skin more than any other skin type. It can dry out your under eye area, cause dark circles and induce premature ageing signs like wrinkles and fine lines. Use Dermalogica Total Eye Care that is free of parabens, artificial fragrances and colours. Dab some around your eyes using your fingertips.

Sleep on a silk pillow

Swap your cotton pillow covers for a smooth, silk one. Your skin rubs less against a silk pillow cover which means lesser chances of acne and wrinkles. Plus, silk is a cool fabric that is also hypoallergenic which makes it perfect for sensitive skin.
