How to support skin that's feeling irritated and sensitised

We’ve looked at the symptoms and causes of skin redness and irritation and rounded up the BYBI products that will help combat this.

What the skin feel is:

We all have our irritable moments (meltdown over eyeliner anyone?) and this includes our skin. If your skin is feeling irritated and sensitised, it can manifest in a number of ways, including redness, tightness, itchiness, soreness, pimples or deep under-skin bumps.

Redness and irritation can be caused by a number of things (hopefully not a wonky cat-eye), including an allergy (in which case you should consult a dermatologist if it persists), sensitivity to fragrance or essential oils, a too-harsh cleansing routine which compromises your lipid barrier and yes, a tale as old as time, stress.

BYBI products that help skin feeling sensitised and reduce redness and irritation, calming the skin:

Swipe Clean - a facial cleansing oil and makeup remover that gently yet effectively cleanses skin without stripping it. 

BYBI Beauty Swipe Clean


Smooth & Soothe Scrub - a brightening facial scrub with soft beads made from jojoba to exfoliate without irritation. 



CBD Booster - seriously effective at highly calming and soothing, inflamed, blemish-prone skin.


Ingredients that help and why they are great for irritated and sensitised skin:

  • Allantoin - promotes the repair of skin damaged by external aggressors, soothes redness and irritated skin and helps the skin retain moisture. Found in Smooth & Soothe Scrub
  • Bisabolol - is a first generation anti-irritant. This means that it prevents initial inflammatory markers from initiating the inflammation cascade. It also induces hyaluronan synthesis thus increasing skin hydration. Found in Swipe Clean
  • Cannabidiol -is a cannabinoid (non-psychoactive component of the hemp plant) that initial studies have shown is a part of the endocannabinoid system within the body. It is thought that cannabidiol has a role to play in maintaining the environment of the skin, reducing redness, increasing moisturisation and reducing sebum production, giving it excellent soothing and balancing properties. Found in CBD Booster
