How to Reduce and Prevent Redness
So many things can cause facial redness—genetics, skin type, the environment, stress, breakouts, etc. Whatever the cause, it can feel uncomfortable to say the least.

If your skin feels dry or tight—try a Hyaluronic Acid Serum. Hyaluronic acid not only helps skin stay plump and hydrated, it also has anti-inflammatory properties that work to visibly calm redness.
Niacinamide is one of the best ingredients for your skin, period. This is particularly true for eczema-, rosacea- and acne-prone skin types because it works to reduce inflammation while evening skin tone. We recommend this Niacinamide Serum.
A soothing face mask is a quick way to calm redness. Madecassoside Mask provides instant cooling and hydration to stressed skin while working to reduce inflammation over time.
A cleansing balm is a non-irritating way to remove makeup and impurities. Sensitive skin types should always opt for gentle, non-drying cleansers that won’t strip skin or have tightening effects. Oat Cleansing Balm contains colloidal oatmeal which has naturally soothing properties that reduce redness and are ideal for delicate skin.
Reduce redness while keeping skin soft and moisturized with Glucoside Serum. This gentle treatment has ingredients that improve underlying factors associated with signs of redness.
How to Prevent Redness
Always Wear SPF
Research has shown that the sun is one of the biggest triggers for rosacea flare-ups. Protect skin and help prevent bouts of redness with a gentle mineral sunscreen every day, all year round.
Hydrated skin is better able to fend off signs of sensitivity and redness. Omega Water Cream contains a nourishing fatty acid complex combined with glycerin, betaine, and niacinamide to lock in hydration, even tone, and strengthen skin’s barrier. This formula is also great for reducing redness from acne.
All skin types should steer clear of known irritating ingredients like alcohol, fragrance, and harsh exfoliants, but this is extra important for sensitive or redness-prone skin types. Always opt for gentle, non-drying formulas filled with calming ingredients that support skin’s barrier and feel soothing on contact.
