Sensitive Skin with a Golden Glow

Olivier Doucet knows all the secrets of sun protection.  While he acknowledges that today’s sunscreen formulas are pleasant and gentle, he and his team found a need for a real solar skin routine for sensitive skin.  And now that’s available with Lancaster’s Sun Sensitive line.  Here’s his advice on how to get a lovely tan in three fundamental steps:  prepare, protect, and repair.



1 Prepare your skin


Pay attention to your skin, keep an eye on it and you’ll be able to identify all of your epidermal issues.


Skin type is genetically determined, Olivier Doucet is clear on the matter.  Sensitive skin will always remain sensitive yet problems can be minimized with specific care.


Ideally, UV exposure should be prepared in advance with an antioxidant treatment applied to skin during 15 days 3 weeks before exposition.  Additionally you should start consuming lycopene and carotenoid rich foods.


For the Vice President of R&D, prudence is the key to a beautiful tan.

“After sun isn’t just a moisturizer.  It also refreshes skin and reduces inflammation while strengthening skin’s resistance.” 

2 Protect your skin


The golden rule for exposing sensitive skin to the sun is to be armed with high SPF.  And to keep skin from getting red and irritated adapt your skin care routine.  High tolerance products are recommended to minimize the risk of allergies.


Lancaster has developed the Sensiboost complex, made from a minimum of ingredients to reduce formula related reactions.


Olivier Doucet also advises retouching your sun care even when you’re out on the patio by using a product in compact form, applied with ease anywhere.


Always use the highest level of protection to heighten melamine levels (that’s what gives skin its tone) and to avoid redness and sunburn.


3 Repair your skin


Olivier Doucet informs, “After sun isn’t just a moisturizer.  It also refreshes skin and reduces inflammation while strengthening skin’s resistance.  That’s why this product exists.”


After sun care should be systematically applied to clean skin after sun exposure.


It will help maintain your golden glow as long as possible.


This step is for everyone and sensitive skin has nothing to fear because Sun Sensitive after sun care is specifically formulated for reactive skins.
