If you have sensitive redhead skin, you know it comes with a host of challenges. One of the biggest challenges is taming redness when the weather starts to warm up. Facial redness is common among redheads and can happen for a number of reasons. Here’s how you can deal with your facial redness this spring:
1. Help your skin cool down
For those suffering from facial redness after exercising or going outdoors on a warm day, the best thing to do is to help your skin cool down. You can achieve this by taking a cool shower, using an ice roller, using aloe on the skin, applying a cool compress, or using refrigerated skincare products. Facial redness from heat is usually temporary and while it may be annoying, you just have to wait it out.
2. Let skincare products help you out
If you’re suffering from general redness of the face that won’t disappear with any remedies, you should use skincare products to help minimize the redness. Facial sprays like the Tower 28 SOS Daily Rescue Spray (featured in a past H2BAR Box) can help to calm the skin and reduce the appearance of redness. For more long-term skincare options you want to opt for products with soothing ingredients like aloe, chamomile, cucumber extract, ceramides, niacinamide, licorice root, azelaic acid, squalene, and CBD.
3. Turn to makeup
Using skincare to reduce redness isn’t always fast, and for some people, their skin may be too sensitive for some of the products that can help achieve this. If this is the case, your best bet is to use makeup to cover the redness. This can be achieved through color-correcting products. Green cancels out red, and you can find green color correctors to apply under your makeup to neutralize the color. You can also use more full-coverage foundations and concealers to help give you a more even skin tone.
4. See a dermatologist
If makeup, skincare and remedies aren’t helping, book an appointment with your dermatologist. Professionals can really help with skin redness because they can prescribe special products to use to help tame the skin.
