Let’s face it, with the mercury hitting all-time highs here in the UK right now, pretty much everyone is re-faced, but when the temperatures go back to normal, for some of us the redness remains. Fortunately, we’ve got several products which can help you to combat the redness and stop your skin from looking irritated and sore:
Sometimes, resurfacing products can be far too harsh on skin which is red and sensitive and can ultimately exacerbate the issue which is causing the redness in the first place. This resurfacer from Dermalogica is gentle enough to be used daily without causing redness or making sensitivity worse, making it ideal if your skin needs a soft touch. Botanical skin brighteners and maximum hydrators to resurface, smooth and brighten the skin.
Using acids on sensitive skin may seem counterintuitive, but the combination of acids in this lotion from Jan Marini combine to hit skin with a deep wash of moisture as well as combatting fine lines and wrinkles, redness, acne scarring, large pores and uneven texture. Skin texture will appear more refined and follicle size will appear diminished.
We couldn’t make a list of anti-redness products without including Elemis Daily Redness Solution, as its powerful Anti-Redness Complex helps calm the appearance of a flushed complexion. It acts like a primer, making it a great base for make-up and de-sensitises and comforts irritated, red and blotchy complexions.
Red skin often goes hand in hand with tightness and discomfort, so a product which will cocoon and caress the skin is a must. This cream from Decleor will soothe and calm feelings of discomfort and redness by addressing the source of skin’s fragility and combines essential milk of rose and extracts of white birch bark to calm the complexion.
Serums are a great product for skin with is red and sensitised as they offer an intense treatment which can improve the complexion from the inside out. This product from Dermalogica’s UltraCalming range is a silky, super concentrated serum that helps treat, correct and defend skin against inflammation and redness and helps interrupt inflammatory triggers to prevent flare-ups.
