Get Rid of Facial Redness Quick: Professional Tips from MD Glam

Facial redness can be both uncomfortable and unsightly, affecting our facial appearance and confidence. Redness on your face can be caused by a variety of reasons, including stress, sun exposure, and specific skin conditions, but most commonly caused by inflammation of the facial skin. Other variables as to what can cause this are weather-related events (i.e., cold or windy climates), food allergies, hormone fluctuations, or even certain skincare products that are too harsh on delicate facial skin. If you are currently experiencing facial redness, there are several ways to soothe your skin and reduce irritation over time. Oftentimes facial moisturizers can help restore skin balance while natural facial masks work to reduce facial redness and reactions but keep reading for a more in-depth explanation as to what can help.

4 Ways to Reduce Redness on Your Face

Ultimately, facial cleansing routines will help to identify what triggers your facial redness in order to make the necessary routine changes for better facial health. If you're ready to explore our expert infused tips and tricks on how to help avoid facial redness, keep reading as we explore 4 ways to reduce redness on your face.

1. Use Sunscreen

Sunscreen plays a pivotal role in facial care as its special broad-spectrum shielding technology helps shield against UVA, UVB, and environmental pollutants that can cause facial redness. By doing this, you are helping reduce the risk of long-term effects that come with sun damage. That aside, sunscreen also adds vital hydration and nourishment to your skin, which locks in moisture for a softer and smoother complexion. In order to maintain this level of protection and care against facial redness, make sure to use at least a SPF 30 sunscreen or higher such as our advanced 2-in-1 advanced formula Sunshout Sunscreen SPF 50! With consistent use, you will experience an improved brightness in your skin's complexion over time while also diminishing any signs of aging.

2. Avoid Hot Water  

Did you know that hot water can agitate your skin, causing it to become more red and inflamed than normal? One of the best ways to reduce facial redness is to start by checking the water temperature that actually goes on your face. When washing your face, It is important to avoid using piping hot water when cleaning your face. Extreme temperatures can further exacerbate facial redness by removing natural facial oils, irritating delicate facial skin, and encouraging the appearance of sensitivity. Using lukewarm or room temperature water when cleansing the skin can help prevent facial redness and allow facial products to penetrate better, resulting in optimal outcomes.

3. Use a Gentle Cleanser
