Welcome back to another blog! I received a lot of comments and questions about how to fade redness from acne, A.K.A PIE or Post-Inflammatory Erythema. Since this is super common, I wanted to share some tips that I gathered! Shoutout to the gals at FaceTory for the awesome video! If you want to find out more tips about redness, watch the video below!
Here's what you have to do!
Don't pick at your face
This is pretty self-explanatory. Redness is commonly caused by damaged blood vessels, and you don't want to damage them even more right?! Do. Not. Touch. Your. Face. It's the ultimate skin care rule. Enough said.
Don't use harsh cleansers/ exfoliants
Although it's super satisfying and popular, some cleansers and almost all scrubs are too abrasive for the delicate skin on your face. Make sure the cleanser you're using doesn't leave your skin feeling stripped of all moisture. In other words, a good cleanser won't leave your skin feeling tight or dry!
Do moisturize and apply sunscreen!
Keeping your skin barrier safe and strong is always a must. Sunscreen and moisturizer go hand-in-hand when it comes to strengthening and protecting your skin-- and these 2 products are like the ultimate shield for your skin! Don't skip!
Try looking for products with these ingredients:
*You want to start slow with products that contain these ingredients! Maybe try 1-2x a week and then increase if you have no reaction (:
- Vitamin C
These are popular skin-renewing and regenerating ingredients that really help even out the complexion and address dark spots, acne, redness, and fine lines!
