One of the most common skin complaints that affect both women and men, particularly from puberty onwards, is the annoying issue of redness. If you are someone who suffers from bouts of redness in your skin, then you will know just how upsetting and confidence ruining it can be, especially since there is no way to control when an outbreak might occur. Don’t give up though, there definitely are some things that you can do to try and make things better for yourself. Here are five simple ways to combat sensitive skin that is prone to redness.
1. Gentle Regimen
You need to make allowances for the sensitivity of your skin, but this is easier said than done. Look for products that are approved by the National Eczema Association, that is always a good indicator of quality and effectiveness for people who are susceptible to redness and breakouts. Also, anything that contains cotton extract and aloe vera is perfect.
2. Avoid Spicy Food
You want to avoid anything type of spicy food that is likely to raise your body temperature and encourage redness to raise in your face. This same reaction can also be caused by things like alcohol and too much sugar and gluten, so just be aware of these things when making food choices.
3. Jade Rolling
Some people see jade rollers as just another fad, but I think they can be really helpful for red and irritated skin. The stone has a cooling effect that can be really soothing, and to get the best benefits out of it, use it after moisturising.
4. Face Washing
No matter how tired you are or rushed you are, you always need to find time to wash your face. The more debris and excess product that builds up in your pores, the more likely you are to suffer a breakout. The more regular you can keep your skin care routine, the more under control your redness will definitely be.
5. Avoid Fragrances
I know that a woman’s perfume can be a vital part of her personality and confidence, but if you want to do everything you possibly can to stop your redness, then perhaps test leaving out your fragrance for a while. The chemicals in perfume can often by the cause of irritation on the skin.
