Expert Tips for Calming and Treating Your Skin

Skin redness can be a frustrating issue to deal with, but understanding its causes is crucial in finding the right care for it. In this post, we will go through common triggers of redness and provide treatments specifically designed for red spots, red cheeks, and an overall red complexion.

For those with sensitive skin, redness may simply be a natural reaction. Using gentle products that soothe and relieve redness can make a significant difference. However, if you have  persistent redness, particularly in the cheeks, it could be a sign of a skin disorder that requires diagnosis and treatment from a doctor. It's important ot follow your docotor's recommendations and establish a gentle skincare routine to help manage the redness. 

In some cases, redness may be caused by using harsh and irritating skincare products without realizing it. To effectively reduce redness, it is essential to treat your skin with care.

 

Here is a step-by -step guide on the best products to treat skin redenss

  1. Replace your harsh and fragranced face wash with a fragrance-free, water-soluble cleanser that softens the skin. 

  2. After cleansing, replenish the skin with a toner that contains antioxidants, ceramides, and calming ingredients to strengthen the skin and soothe redness.

  3. Instead of using abrasive scrubs, opt for a leave-on exfoliant with salicylic acid (BHA) to gently remove dead skin cells and reveal a healthier complexion. BHA also has natural calming properties to soothe redness and smooth dry, flaky areas and rough, bumpy skin.

  4. During the day, it is crucial to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. Look for mineral sunscreen ingredients like titanium dioxide and/or zinc oxide, which are gentle on redness-prone skin.

  5. In the evening, use a calming serum and hydrator specifically formulated for your skin type to soothe redness.

In addition to following this routine, it is essential to avoid using any other skincare products that could be causing your redness. This includes getting rid of astringents and products with high concentrations of drying alcohols, witch hazel, or irritating fragrant oils and extracts like lavender, grapefruit, peppermint, lemon, eucalyptus, and rose.

Synthetic fragrances should also be avoided, as they are the top trigger for a red face and other signs of sensitivity. If you have red spots on your face, they are most likely post-breakout marks, which can be hastened by following the tips in this article.

Acne itself can also cause redness, and it's crucial to see a dermatologist if over-the-counter skincare products do not improve the redness. The dermatologist can provide medical solutions to help address the issue.
