4 quick ways to calm red skin:
Suffering from red, irritated, dry or over sensitive skin? Here are some simple steps to soothe your skin.
Step 1 – Adapt your skincare routine
Remember to steer clear of potential triggers that may irritate your skin. This can be as simple as the temperature of the water you are using (too hot or too cold) to the way you cleanse – always dab, rather than rub!
Step 2 - Find the right products
Seek out products with gentle formulas. “Avoid harsh cleansers or grainy scrubs that can actually promote inflammation” adds dermatologist, Dr Justine Kluk
Step 3 – Don’t pick
By picking at your skin it will only worsen the irritation. Hands off!
Step 4 – Protect it!
By keeping skin protected with a moisturiser acting as a barrier, or an SPF creating a film over the skin, it will be less prone to irritations.
