My darlings, I hope you are ready for another beauty post!
With fall here, before you know it winter will be too. One problem that I see women talk a lot of is red or irritated skin. Oftentimes changes in weather—such as wind or dry air—can contribute to this or you might suffer from rosacea, a common skin condition.
If you are struggling with this, you are not alone. I am here to tell you there are so many great ways to heal your skin and ease the redness. These products are all great and will take care of you and your beautiful features.
Witch Hazel Compresses
If you don’t use Witch hazel, you need to! Witch hazel, which is derived from a North American shrub, has many great benefits. These include relieving inflammation, reducing skin irritation, treating hemorrhoids and more.
To help reduce inflammation, redness of skin and acne, be sure to cleanse your face with Witch hazel morning and night. Simply put the witch hazel on a cotton make-up round and apply it to your face. If you have the time, use it as a face mask. Here’s a budget-friendly tip I love: buy a paper towel–Viva is the best for this–and make holes for your eyes, nose, and mouth. Apply the witch hazel to the paper towel and use it as a facemask. This is great for days where your skin is particularly irritated.
The Blue Cocoon
This product runs a little pricey, but it will last you a very long time, darlings.
This wonderful oil melts on your face upon contact and gives your skin very deep nourishment. If you struggle with daily redness, this product may be for you. The Blue Cocoon uses plant oils like lavender, geranium and blue tansy, which are all great for calming inflammation and redness. Use a pea-sized amount for a daily moisturizer, especially on days where your skin needs extra love.
Dr.Jart Deep Hydration Sheet Dermask
If you love sheet masks for your days of self-care or after a long day, this product may be for you. It’s also a great travel item for a long flight.
This mask is made with cellulose fiber to help your skin absorb the ingredients more efficiently. It also contains aloe vera, which is wonderful for soothing skin while easing pain and irritation.
On days when your skin needs rescue from the elements, this hydrating mask is a great option. Simply leave it on for 15-20 minutes and voila!
Youth-Enriched Fluid with Orchid
This Orchid Enriched Essence comes highly recommended from a relatively new Korean skincare line called Innisfree. This product is wonderful and soothing after you’ve gone through your daily cleansing process.
Containing Jeju orchid, not only will this essence ease redness and irritation of the skin, but it also targets signs of aging. It does so while firming, strengthening and toning your skin! You may even use this product in place of your regular skin toner.
Ultra Repair Instant Oatmeal Mask
Looking for a great leave-on mask? This one might be the one for you! “Deeply hydrating,” this mask will “nourish, calm and rejuvenate distressed-looking skin,” according to First Aid Beauty.
The oatmeal is the trick in this mask, leaving your face feeling soft and calm after facing the elements or unexpected irritations. It also contains botanical antioxidants and shea butter that will help to nourish and heal your skin.
Azulene Calming Mask
Mario Badescu’s Azulene Calming Mask is great to soothe your skin because it contains both azulene and chamomile extract. Both of these agents, as well as Balsam Peru, are natural anti-inflammatory ingredients that calm red skin and help it heal.
Although this product may not help with some rosacea, it will help with skin redness and irritation. It also feels great on the skin.
Honey Skin – Aloe Vera + Manuka Honey Cream
I am very partial to the name of this cream! Honey Skin is a wonderful skin moisturizing cream that helps cure skin conditions such as rosacea and shingles.
The ingredients in this product include the potent Manuka Honey, aloe vera, hemp seed oil, coconut oil, blue-green algae and many more. The combination of these ingredients both relieves pain and inflammation as well as rejuvenates skin cells.
The great part about this cream is that you can use it all over your face and body. Leave your skin feeling healthy and moisturized after using this cream!
Use What Works for You
My darlings, I hope these give you a few ideas of ways to help ease any signs of redness and irritations. There are so many options in this great world and you must use what works for you.
Make sure that when buying a product, you are buying for your skin type to ensure you won’t have any reactions while using them.
Try out products and if you don’t like them, research for the best one you can find. Your skin deserves to glow and shine just like you!
