They say that looking good is tantamount to feeling good. If you feel good about yourself, that translates to positivity. And when you give off positive vibes, your beauty will radiate inside and out.
That said, having inflamed, blotchy or red skin from time to time can be quite a bother. Fortunately, unless you have ultra sensitive skin or a skin condition, red skin is not a problem that you have to worry too much about. There are several alternative ways to remove or at least reduce the redness in your face. Perhaps you’ve tried a few, or maybe you could write the book on the topic yourself. Whatever your situation, here are seven remedies to fix the red skin on your face for good. Prepare for a skin transformation!
Avoid Spicy Foods
Studies show spicy foods can contribute redness to the skin. Chances are that you’ve seen a friend turn into a tomato when consuming hot and spicy food. It’s fair to say that we are what we eat! A little bit of spice is nice but too much can cause you problems.
Use an Organic Yogurt Face Mask
An organic yogurt face is incredibly cooling and a great way to treat your red-hued face. Dairy products have a molecular structure of casein. These enzymes in yogurt can help renew your skin as the natural fats nourish it. Although you can buy fresh face masks at several stores and boutiques, you can also whip up a do-it-yourself (DIY) face mask with organic yogurt and additions of your choice. Blueberry, honey, and cucumber are a few fantastic options.
If masks you can eat are not your thing, try Dermafirm’s Ultra Soothing Mask. It is clinically proven to reduce your redness while calm and moisturize your skin (and no messy cleanup afterwards!).
Here’s something you may not want to hear – your coffee may be the culprit. Did you know that excessive caffeine can cause redness on your face? This is because caffeine can be inflammatory for some people when ingested. That said, try to watch your caffeine intake and experiment by removing it altogether. We know how hard it is, especially if you can’t go to work without a morning cup of joe, but your skin may thank you if you give it a try!
Take Skin-Nourishing Supplements
Studies show that people with digestive problems often have problems with their skin. If your red skin is the result of an unhappy gut, taking probiotic will be a big help. Healthy bacteria will help you fight off other bacteria and keep you healthy.
Make Sure Your Current Skincare Products Are Not The Culprit
Make sure that the skincare products that you’ve bought at the drugstore or department store have not been supplemented with fillers or ingredients that may be toxic to your particular skin. Most products only highlight one or two ingredients that they don’t use, but Dermafirm boldly promotes all of their products that are free from the ten ingredients which are harmful to your skin. Check your product’s ingredient list…are you up for the challenge?
Stay Hydrated All Year Long
Finally, what better way to reduce skin redness than to keep yourself hydrated? Drink plenty of water all year long, and even more in the hot summer months. Staying hydrated will help keep your skin happy and healthy, making you more resilient to environmental stressors. However, this is not only confined to water alone. You may try a soothing face oil followed by a clean, nontoxic foundation to conceal redness on your face. The rule of thumb for your skin is always to stay hydrated.
When your skin needs a boost to stay hydrated, gently apply Dermafirm’s Pure Moisturizing Cream and see the difference that is created with their special blend of Argus oil, Shea Butter, Hyaluronate and Snail secretion.
Use a Redness Specific Skincare Regime
While all of the above tips will certainly help to reduce puffiness, blotchiness and skin redness, sometimes the best line of defense is a salon quality, targeted redness skincare regime designed specifically to reduce and eliminate redness. Dermafirm’s Redness Care Complete Combo Set is trusted by spas around the world and contains the essence of mystic purple Azulene and Vitamin K – professional grade ingredients not commonly found in other skin care products, which you can use in the comfort of your own home. In this complete kit you’ll receive an All-in-One Bubble Deep Cleanser, 5 Ultra Soothing Face Masks, Azulene Vera Gel for cooling your skin after being in the sun, an Ultra Soothing Toner and an Ultra Soothing Formula Emulsion. Now that’s what we call complete redness care!
