REDNESS

Day in day and out, your skin is exposed to various harmful factors. As a result, your skin barrier gets damaged, which hinders the healing process. Your skin becomes unbalanced, causing irritated and red skin. It's therefore important to care for your skin. You can do this by using products and creams against reddened skin from the Paula's Choice Calm collection. Discover more

THE EFFECTS OF SKIN IRRITATION

The effect of irritated skin is usually more than just redness and itching. For example, irritated skin doesn't heal as easily. Moreover, supportive substances (such as collagen and elastin) break down and your outer protective layer or skin barrier becomes damaged. If you have irritated skin, you're also more likely to develop wrinkles, brown spots and other signs of skin ageing. If you have oily skin, then there's an increased risk of increased sebum production and the appearance of enlarged pores.

REDUCE REDNESS IN THREE STEPS

You can get started with reducing redness or red skin in three simple steps.

  1. Use a facial cleanser against redness
  2. Choose exfoliants against redness
  3. Use a cream that prevents redness

STEP 1: FACIAL CLEANSERS AGAINST REDNESS

Reddened facial skin is often the result of irritation due to external influences or inflammatory reactions. Soften and calm your reddened skin by cleansing your face daily with a mild product.

STEP 2: EXFOLIANTS AGAINST REDNESS

An exfoliant with BHA (salicylic acid) works as an anti-inflammatory, which reduces the redness in your face and relaxes your skin. Moreover, the use of an exfoliant ensures softer and smoother-feeling skin.

STEP 3: CREAMS AGAINST REDNESS

Help your reddened skin recover from irritation by using a cream that contains skin-restoring ingredients and soothing antioxidants. During the day, protect your skin with a sunscreen to prevent aggravating the redness.
