Does Your Complexion Have You Seeing Red?

Lately, my complexion has me seeing red…literally. For the past few months, I’ve noticed redness around my nose and cheeks (this might work for St. Nick, but not a good look for the rest of us). So, I shamelessly asked a Dermatologist friend of mine about this and she says it can be caused by a few things include Rosacea (which, I didn’t know, is considered a form of adult acne), heredity, and/or sensitivity to certain facial products. She referred to it as a “ruddy” or “reddish” color that appears on certain areas of the face and can occur in mild to extreme form.

So, How Can I Get Rid Of The Redness?

If you fall into the extreme category, I would definitely recommend that you go see a Dermatologist. For mild cases, my friend suggested trying an over-the-counter redness prevention lotion. In my search and testing of various products, I was surprised to learn just about every major skin care line offers a redness reducer…from Clinique to Philosophy to Neutrogena. I decided on Boot’s Expert Anti-Redness Serum (Target carries this brand) and it’s done exactly what it claims. After I apply the serum and let it dry completely my usual pinkish areas are definitely less visible. I think of it as a “calming” agent for my skin.

And if you want to tag team your redness, there are plenty of make-up lines that offer correction concealers and powders including Bare Escentuals, Physician’s Formula, and Jane Iredale (I’ve been using Physician’s Formula Mineral Correcting Powder and it works like a charm).

Red complexion? Not any more. Even, glowing skin? Party of one! The only red I want to see is in my favorite red velvet cupcake…
