3 Steps To

Reduce Redness

In the red? If you’re one of the millions of people who suffer from persistent skin redness, then we’ve got you. Whether your trigger is allergies, rosacea, or hyper-sensitivity, these three steps—which include tips on dermatologist-developed products—can make life a whole lot rosier...in a good way. Bye-bye, blotchiness.

Step One: Cleanse very gently.

Skin that frequently blushes and flushes tends to be fragile. Even your most basic skin care steps - in this case, cleansing - should be as gentle and comforting as possible. Massage a mild face wash like Redness Solutions Soothing Cleanser into your skin, tissue off or rinse with lukewarm water, and pat dry with a clean towel. Enriched with emollients such as squalene and glycerin, this gentle cleanser offers frictionless application to minimise any chance of reaction.  And remember: avoid fragrance in your cleanser, since it’s one of the most common skin irritants. Even though you rinse it off, your skin will still benefit from the ingredients.

Step Two: Calm and soothe with moisture.

Choose a lotion designed specifically for overactive skin. The right blend of soothing ingredients—look for white tea and algae—should immediately give your skin some relief and also improve its strength and reactivity over time. Warm some between your hands, and lightly press it in—first onto cheeks, then moving outward and around chin, forehead, and neck. The pale green colour of Redness Solutions Daily Relief Cream instantly makes ruddy skin look less flushed and more even.

Step Three: Hello yellow. Goodbye red.

Yellow face powder visually cancels out redness but is sheer on your skin. Start with a light application of Redness Solutions Instant Relief Mineral Pressed Powder all over your face and neck, and then add more to red areas. This skin care treated powder is infused with soothing botanicals to comfort skin and instantly neutralise redness. Use a puff to apply the powder, which is the type of applicator least likely to aggravate your skin. Keep the powder on-hand for touch-ups…and peace of mind.
