Red Skin Solutions

Redness-prone skin tends to be sensitive and can react to environmental factors, as well as ingredients found in some cosmetic and skincare products. With a little extra care, however, you can attain skin that is calm, healthy and luminous. 

  • Know your skin’s triggers.  Before purchasing any new product, check the ingredients list for common irritants such as alcohol, sulfates and petrochemicals. 
  • Avoid synthetic chemicals and added fragrance. This may seem obvious, but unless you read your product labels, you may be unknowingly applying irritating chemicals to your redness-prone skin. Fragrance is an especially sensitizing ingredient for many sensitive skin types. 
  • Remember that even well formulated products can cause a reaction. Retinol, for example, is a fantastic ingredient which conveys an astonishing array of scientifically proven benefits, but it is not tolerated by 100% of all skin types.  Similarly, glycolic acid has few peers when it comes to exfoliating and renewing skin, but a glycolic acid peel may not be appropriate for redness-prone skin.
  • When introducing a new product, do a patch test first by applying a small amount behind the ear.  If no irritation or redness occurs after a day, you should be able to safely introduce the product into your regimen.
  • Choose products with natural antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients. Dragon’s Blood, Green Tea,  Vitamin C, Chamomile, Licorice and Evening Primrose are among the many anti-inflammatory ingredients that we use in OZNaturals® products.
  • Sunscreen use is especially vital for sensitive skin.  A broad-spectrum sunscreen with a SPF of 30 is a must – every day, regardless of the weather or time of year.  Natural, mineral-based sunscreens are best for redness-prone skin. 
  • Make healthier eating choices. Diet and skin health are closely intertwined.  Avoiding processed foods, alcohol, too much caffeine, and sugar can make a big difference with your skin’s appearance.
