In the winter, the best way to avoid dry, flaky, and irritated skin is to moisturize and do it more often. While there are so many moisturizers in the market to choose from, those with sensitive skin are better off avoiding some ingredients to avoid irritating their skin more. According to Glamour, these are some ingredients that work wonderfully on other skin types but may not work as well for sensitive skin: retinol, salicylic acid, coconut oil, hyaluronic acid, benzoyl peroxide, alpha hydroxy acids and hydroquinone. Instead, look for products that have bakuchiol, witch hazel, jojoba oil, squalene, ceramides, azelaic acid, polyhydroxy acids and tranexamic acid.
For soft and hydrated skin in the winter, here are dermatologist-approved moisturizers for sensitive skin.
