What is redness?
Experiencing skin redness that is not sunburn can trigger anxiety when faced with erythema — blushing skin or red spots where blood pools at the skin’s surface to fight irritation and inflammation to promote healing.
What causes skin redness and irritation?
Signs of redness are symptoms of various medical conditions or changes in your lifestyle, such as allergy, dermatitis in its different forms, hormones, eczema and rosacea, among others. It often occurs when your skin becomes irritated after coming in contact with a known or unknown irritant.
How can I differentiate between sensitivity and a medical condition causing redness?
While there are many telltale signs to identify the cause of reddened skin, such as rashes, itchy bumps, blistering and burning to spot irritant contact dermatitis after using an aggravating product. The best way to differentiate them from sensitivity is to visit your doctor or dermatologist, who can diagnose the cause, explain the issue and recommend targeted skincare for redness.
Which ingredients are effective for calming redness in skincare products?
Ingredients such as allantoin, beta-glucan, arnica, teprenone and vitamin K2 are potent ingredients in skincare for red skin that provide immediate and lasting soothing support for inflamed skin. They help to restore your skin’s protective barrier and diffuse redness.
Should I avoid specific skincare products with redness-prone skin?
Yes. While it can take some trial and error before identifying problematic products and ingredients, switching to dedicated skincare for reducing redness can provide quality relief to soothe irritation and offer a satisfying cooling sensation to your skin. This not only helps prevent flare-ups and manage your symptoms but also tailors an anti-redness skincare routine that matches the needs of your complexion.
