Facial Redness

Facial Redness

The most common causes of facial redness are rosacea and facial seborrhea (facial dandruff)

It's true, most people troubled with facial redness either have rosacea, seborrheic dermatitis, or both. Sun damage can cause facial redness too, as can irritation of facial skin from exposure to harsh climates or skin care products. The bottom line is that facial redness often indicates that the skin is compromised, sensitive, and needs special care.

What are the best products and skin care routine to fight facial redness?

You can improve facial redness with a skin care routine that does not overly dry or irritate your sensitive skin. It is also important to use soothing and hydrating products. Since rosacea and seborrhea are often to blame for facial redness, using products that help these conditions will also help tame the redness. This means using skin cleansing products that are non-drying, such as Calming Zinc™ Soap fortified with pyrithione zinc  to help fight seborrhea and rosacea. The pyrithione zinc is crafted into a natural cleansing bar that is rich in soothing glycerin. After cleansing, replenish your skin's antioxidant reserve with my popular and highly effective Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy™. This product has been a mainstay in my practice to reduce facial redness from all causes, especially rosacea and seborrhea. It contains a high concentration of  pharmaceutical grade, stable green tea antioxidants in combination with caffeine and hyaluronic acid. 

Why do dermatologists recommend moisturizing face creams and sunscreens for people with facial redness?

It is important to know that facial redness indicates that your skin's barrier integrity is compromised and that you need to care gently for your skin so that it can heal. When not using my Calming Zinc™ Soap, it is best to use only gentle and non-irritating cleansers. You also want to keep your skin hydrated with moisturizers that help lock in moisture. Don't let your skin become dry, irritated and dehydrated because that will slow the healing of your skin barrier integrity. 

Since sun exposure contributes to both redness and worsening of rosacea, non-irritating sunscreens play an important part in your complete skin care routine. I have found that sunscreen products made with mineral zinc oxide are best for complexions prone to facial redness.

Below find the products that I recommend to protect and improve facial skin that is prone to redness. These include cleansers, correcting products, moisturizers, sunscreens and even makeup. Pick products based on your skin type (oily, dry) and the look and feel of products that you like best for your facial skin care (light weight, rich, matte, tinted etc.).
