Whether it is the “Curse of the Celts” or the environmental factors our skin endures daily, many customers I encounter complain of sensitive skin prone to redness. Everyday factors such as physical activity, hormonal changes, stress and UV exposure can trigger skin reactivity and cause facial redness to increase.
Many customers look for camouflage products to hide their redness rather than taking measures to manage it. I always advise my customers to start managing their facial redness with a good skincare routine. Finding the right products is a really important first step and knowing what triggers facial redness is equally important. By making changes to how we treat our skin daily and to our lifestyle, we can help reduce facial skin redness.
For customers seeking advice for skin redness, my go-to brand is La Roche-Posay. The range provides tailored solutions for all different types of skin sensitivity. The Rosaliac range has been specifically designed for skin prone to redness and provides everything from a cooling cleansing gel to an intensive anti-redness serum, along with daily moisturisers which contain SPF. There is a multifunctional product in the range called Rosaliac CC Cream, which covers like a make-up, works like a serum, hydrates like a moisturiser, and protects like a UV cream. Having seen fantastic results using this range on my own skin, I can confidently recommend it to my customers.
