When talking about appearance, well, seeing red is not always ideal. If you have sensitive skin, you know how hard it is to deal with, especially when it reacts to the slightest triggers. Unbearable.
Facial redness is now considered one of the most common skin issues, caused by several reasons, sometimes unknown. So, it’s essential to know more about it to decide what’s best for your skin.
Remember that it’s always a great idea to discuss any skin issues with a specialist.
Here is what you need to know.
Same Red, But in Different Forms
Facial redness happens when blood rushes to the surface of our skin. It is linked to highly reactive or sensitive skin. The cause? Well, it depends.
Redness, as previously mentioned, can be triggered by a lot of reasons, and that’s just really bad. Either we get it red from sunburn, allergies or rosacea; every time we have to deal with it, it’s excruciating.
Your Lifestyle or Diet Plans Might Be to Blame
Did you sleep well last night? How about food? Did you eat properly?
Stress, long nights, and odd diet plans can seriously affect your skin.
Temperature changes, drinks, and even food can be to blame. Spicy food, for example, can trigger or worsen the redness.
Bad Skincare Routines and Products
There are ingredients in your skincare products that do your skin more harm than good, and you probably don’t know about it. Remember that what works for a person might not do the same for you.
You can always verify with a specialist what’s best for your skin. Also, choosing the right products is not going to happen overnight.
“Niacinamide, aloe vera, green tea, azelaic acid and arnica are all helpful to decrease redness,” recommends Debra Jaliman, a board-certified dermatologist in New York City.
Products that contain fragrance, alcohol and other abrasive ingredients can harm sensitive skin a lot. So, next time when you go shopping for skincare products, read the ingredient list first.
