Causes of Redness on your face and how to reduce it

You must’ve very often noticed that your face turns red and you have no idea why it is happening. Skin redness can have many causes - from Sunburn and allergies to Eczema and many more. Below mentioned points are few reasons your skin could be turning red:

  • Rosacea: 
  • Rosacea is a condition that usually affects the face and can often cause redness and can trigger small, red Pus-filled bumps on the face.

  • Over - Exfoliation: 
  • Very often your skin can turn red if you very frequently exfoliate your skin. You can use our tryskince Cleansing kit for exfoliation and you could use our kit 2-3 times a week.

  • Excessive intake of Spicy food & Alcohol: 
  • It is no secret that alcohol dehydrates your body and makes the rehydrating process a little slower which results in Dry and Flaky skin.

    Spicy foods often contain acidic lycopenes that can irritate your skin, throw off the balance of your pH levels, and trigger breakouts. It also raises your body temperature, so you sweat to cool back down. When sweat mixes with the bacteria on your skin, it can cause breakouts and face redness.

  • Overuse of Retinol based creams:
  • Many of your skin-care products might have a chemical named retinoid and over usage of this makes your skin sensitive to the sun, which inturn causes redness on the face.

  • Poor Quality Cosmetic products:
  • When it comes to skin related products, we suggest you to go with the best and a well-known brand as these products are directly related to your skin. You must ensure that the products you use are chemical free which can harm your skin and the products are prepared in a hygienic and scientific environment.

    Few tips which can help you reduce the redness on your face:

  • Salicylic Acid or Glycolic Acid Peels:
  • Salicylic acid belongs to a class of drugs known as salicylates. When applied to the skin, salicylic acid may work by helping the skin to shed dead cells from the top layer and by decreasing redness and swelling (inflammation). This decreases the number of pimples that form and speeds healing. 

    Glycolic acid works to break the bonds between the outer layer of skin cells, including dead skin cells, and the next skin cell layer. This creates a peeling effect that can make the skin appear smoother and more even.

  • Aloe Vera:
  • Aloe vera in the form of gel or cream is super beneficial for sensitive skin. It’s cooling properties can help in soothing redness, infection, rashes and itchiness.

  • Cool compression on the skin:
  • A cool compress on the skin can help the skin to reduce the facial inflammation and give relief to sensitive skin. 

  • Sunscreen
  • Sunscreen with high SPF can help you reduce your skin redness/rashes caused due to weather change. 

  • Using Cucumber in your skin routine:
  • Cucumbers are well known for their cooling properties, applying them on your skin can help you soothe your skin and reduce the redness.

    Redness can be caused due to several reasons. If the redness on your face lasts more than 2 weeks, we suggest you visit a dermatologist.
