Every day, we carefully select our outfits without necessarily thinking about our health. Our skin is put to the test between the toxic products present in our clothes and the irritating natural materials, which is worse for those with sensitive skin.


Contrary to popular belief, certain natural materials irritate certain skin types. So be sure that you carefully look at the labels of the clothes you buy. Sensitive skin will, for example, be particularly reactive to natural materials such as wool or even to synthetic materials such as polyester.

Bet on non-irritating fibers such as cotton to avoid worsening symptoms, or silk or satin, materials that are gentle on the skin. Besides, if you wear wool, avoid turtlenecks, as these can irritate the skin on your neck. Likewise, never wear wool directly on your skin; always wear an undershirt.



The brand starts with simplicity and versatility. They marry classic silhouettes with clean lines and include only the essential details.

The best part is that they also create seasonless pieces. ADAY believes that owning truly versatile clothing means you can buy fewer things; since each piece enables you to do much more.

2. Lunya


From smooth silk to breathable Pima, Lunya has got something to fit your mood and soften your day. The brand opts for fabrics with unparalleled quality.

3. Universal Standard


From premium Peruvian cotton, luxe Italian merino wool to great French satin-back crepe, Universal Standard has got some of the best fabrics you can think of. Besides, they claim to look for the best of the best, so you get the best of the best.
