Finding the best moisturizer for your skin, especially if that skin is sensitive or irritated in any way, can be one of the most difficult things to do when shopping for beauty, but there is hope! There are tons of options out there that can assist you in all your skincare needs and concerns for your specific skin type without aggravating existing conditions. Some can even help treat your skin issues! Here are my top 5 picks for keeping irritated, inflamed and sensitive skin hydrated and calm.
This Purity Organic Moisturizing Balm is my favorite for treating irritated and dehydrated skin! Created by one of my favorite all natural beauty brands, Suti Skincare, this balm is perfect for all skin types, but can be a lifesaver for those with irritated or sensitive skin. It’s all natural and includes skin calming ingredients like chamomile, calendula and lavender which help alleviate irritation while moisturizing dehydrated skin. This works best for those with dry, dehydrated, sensitive, normal or combination to dry skin types. You can see my original review for this balm here.
This all purpose skin cream by Egyptian Magic is amazing! Minimal ingredients, this cream is perfect for those with the most sensitive, damaged or dry skin types. Formulated from an ancient Egyptian recipe, the cream includes skin nourishing olive oil, beeswax, honey and royal jelly to hydrate and renew skin. It also works well on minor cuts, scrapes, scars, and burns! Definitely avoid if you’re allergic to bees though! You can see my original review on this here.
I’m surprised I haven’t yet reviewed this Soothing Serum by Juice Beauty. I tried it ages ago and it’s quite a lovely serum for skin irritations. It’s a bit lighter than most other moisturizers for sensitive, irritated skin. It’s very light and includes all organic plant ingredients to help calm skin issues. I love how light the serum is and it smells lovely!
I briefly mentioned this Keep the Peace Moisturizer by Philosophy in this post about treating your skin concerns without changing up moisturizers, but this moisturizer was fantastic for when I was dealing with skin irritations last summer. I had no idea where they came from, but all of a sudden, my skin was dry, inflamed and raw. This was incredible for healing my skin without being too heavy in the summertime.
This Ultra Repair Cream by F.A.B. is fantastic for healing skin without being heavy on the skin. One thing I really like about this is that you can heal skin irritations anywhere on your body, not just your face, and it doesn’t cause breakouts or irritations. The base is a thick emollient cream formulated with a high percentage of colloidal oatmeal so it’s meant to calm your skin down and quick. The thickness of the cream means you’ll only need a tiny amount and it’s still not heavy on the skin. My favorite part? It’s super affordable. You can get a 2 oz. tube of this for $12!

So those are my top picks!
