WHAT IS THE BEST MOISTURIZER FOR SENSITIVE SKIN?

If you have sensitive skin, we recommend a moisturizer formulated especially for very sensitive skin. You can choose soothing ingredients such as Neurosensine and La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water. You can also chose products containing prebiotic ingredients to rebalance your skin’s microbiome, aka. its friendly bacteria.
