When it comes to sensitive skin, every time you wear makeup is like playing a game of Minefield. Is it going to break you out today? Will your skin turn red for no reason? Will there be flakes the next day? And most of the answers to these questions depend on how you do your post-makeup skincare. Building a post-makeup skincare routine for sensitive skin is important for several reasons.
Apart from the efficient removal of dirt and grime, it also minimises the chances of skin irritation and flare-ups. If you're looking for an easy post-makeup skincare routine for sensitive skin, we've got you covered. Read on for all the steps you need to follow to build a post-makeup skincare routine for sensitive skin.

- Step 03: Next up, opt for a soap-free face wash
- Step 04: Use an alcohol-free toner
- Step 05: Seal the deal with a light moisturiser
Step 01: Start with gentle cleansing wipes
Start with the simplest step out there — using a facial wipe to take off the topmost layer of makeup. The Simple Kind To Skin Cleansing Facial Wipes have been designed for sensitive skin and will make sure that your makeup comes easily, albeit without irritating the skin. These clean beauty wipes contain triple purified water for skin hydration, pro-vitamin B5 to remove impurities, and vitamin E for skin nourishment. Bonus? It contains no skin baddies like alcohol, perfumes and harsh chemicals that can trigger your sensitive skin.
Step 02: Use a gentle makeup remover
For makeup that’s a little stubborn and harder to remove (we're looking at you, mascara), you need micellar water — and the Simple Kind To Skin Micellar Cleansing Water is perfect! Chock-full of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C (prevents dryness), vitamin B (purifies), vitamin B3 (smoothens), glycol (nourishes), triple purified water (hydrates) and hexylene (eliminates impurities), consider this clean beauty micellar water your go-to when it comes to instant skin nourishment and cleansing.
Step 03: Next up, opt for a soap-free face wash
We get it, it seems like the micellar water has taken care of the makeup, and you can stop stressing about anything left on your face. But is that the way to go? Nope! You need to cleanse your skin to ensure no makeup residue is left behind on your skin. Use the Simple Kind To Skin Refreshing Facial Wash, a soap-free alternative to regular face washes that works wonders for sensitive skin. With hydrating and soothing properties, the nourishing cleanser will remove all dirt and impurities while revitalising and refreshing your sensitive skin like no other.
Step 04: Use an alcohol-free toner
Girls with sensitive skin might cringe at the thought of using a toner due to so many of them being astringents and leaving them with irritated skin, but don’t worry! The Simple Kind To Skin Soothing Facial Toner will ensure that you don’t miss out on a proper CTM routine, since it’s specially designed for sensitive skin. With antioxidant-rich chamomile, soothing allantonin, inflammation-preventing witch hazel, and hydrating pro vit B5 in the mix, this alcohol-free toner will soothe your skin and restore its natural pH level with no alkaline residue.
Step 05: Seal the deal with a light moisturiser
You're almost at the finish line! Finally, before you retire for the day, hydrate your skin with a lightweight non-comedogenic moisturiser like the Simple Kind To Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser. It contains nourishing borage seed oil and vitamin E, hydrating glycerin, and soothing pro-vitamin B5 that will leave your face feeling moisturised sans the grease.
