This post is near and dear to me because I’ve been living a skincare nightmare over the past two months. My face became so red and inflamed that when I woke up in the morning my face felt like it was on fire. I tried to take care of the problem myself and this only made things worse #notanaesthetician.
My Favorite Pajamas
My Skin Type
Let me start off by telling you about my skin. I have dry sensitive skin that gets oily in the T zone. The redness tends to flare up on my cheeks, around my nose and my chin.
Causes Of Flare Ups:
I started drinking a LOT more water and quit using all of the above products.
Nightly Anti Redness Skin Care Routine
Anti Redness Skin Care Step 1: Double Cleanse
First I wash my face with either this balm or this balm. Next, I wash my face AGAIN with this cleanser. Double cleansing ensures all of your makeup and bacteria is washed away from your skin. This also allows your skincare products to work more effectively.
Anti Redness Skin Care Step 2: Redness Relief Serum
This serum has been a HUGE step in keeping the flare ups at bay. It instantly soothes my skin and I can see the redness disappear almost immediately.
Anti Redness Skin Care Step 3: Eye Cream
Dab a small amount of this eye cream around the bottom of your eye. This helps keep my under eye area really moisturized so my concealer doesn’t look flaky.
Anti Redness Skin Care Step 4: Moisturizer
This moisturizer is designed specifically to calm redness. It also hydrates my dry skin and leaves it soft and flake free in the morning.
Anti Redness Skin Care Step 5: Night Mask
This is an optional step but to help with dryness I use this overnight mask 1-2 times a week. After I cleanse I apply all the steps above and then a thin layer of this mask. I let it dry for 7-10 minutes before laying down.
