Anti-redness skincare can target a range of concerns from flushing flare-ups to persistent, blotchy redness due to damaged, inflamed skin.
What causes redness?
If you’re experiencing flushed, red skin on your face there are a number of triggers that could be responsible.
- Extreme temperatures and sun exposure
- Spicy food
- Fragrances and alcohol in skincare
- Alcoholic drinks – especially wine
Existing skin conditions associated with redness, like rosacea, can be exacerbated by these factors.
The best ingredients to treat redness
An effective anti-redness skincare routine should not only provide immediate cooling relief for visibly red skin, it should also work to strengthen the skin barrier.
When the barrier is weakened and damaged, skin is more prone to irritation and redness.
