How To Get Rid Of Redness On Face – What Are Your Options?

ruddy-cheeksIf you want to know how to get rid of redness on face so you can feel better about yourself we need to first identify what’s causing the redness on your face. Most people that suffer from redness on face typically have a minor or more serious case of Rosacea.

Rosacea is a condition where the skin turns red and may possibly be accompanied by skin pimples that look like acne. It may also consist of a lot of small spider like blood vessels.

Potential Triggers

Other common causes of redness are allergies, climate changes, and the sun. Also, excess alcohol can play havoc with the skin’s appearance as can chronic high blood pressure. So, the rash may not always be Roasacea. There are many different options if you plan to get rid of the redness on your face. You can start by trying the right moisturizing ingredients to strengthen the barrier of your skin (gylcerin, ceramide, cholesterol, and stearic acid).

I’ve heard that some ingredients like Salicylic Acid, Licochalone, Sulfur, and  Niacinamide can possibly help smooth the skin. Omega-3′s are great to help improve the look of skin and overall health as well. Keep in mind to carefully choose the right skin care products as some can irritate the skin and cause more problems. Take it one at a time!

Avoid ingredients that can cause dryness or irritation such as benzoyl peroxide, alpha hydroxy acid (some of these ingredients are in acne mediccations so be careful) and minty ingredients (menthol, peppermint oil, cinnamon oil).

Monitor what you put on your skin (and my own experiment)

Although these are a few ways to improve the look of your skin I highly recommend monitoring everything you put on your face as well as everything you eat. Being aware of the products that you use on your face can be helpful in determining which are causing more harm than good. Sometimes we think the solutions that are doing the best for us are actually making things worse. Keep a journal so you can monitor your daily activities as well as foods you are consuming and the products you’re using on your face.

From personal experience, I can tell you that this helped me a lot! Some years ago, I was suffering horribly from hives, itchiness ALL OVER my face, arms and legs. I went to my personal doctor who sent me to Dartmouth-Hitchcock (in New Hampshire) to get tested for various allergies. While it turned up a few things that I was, in fact allergic to (something called “Balsam of Peru” and anything with “cinnamate” in it – which was in a lot of sunscreens at the time), it didn’t completely solve the problem.

Finally, I started writing down EVERYTHING I used and ate. AND, it turned out that anytime I had something with “bee propolis” in it, I swelled up like a balloon. I immediately discarded everything with bee propolis, beeswax, and honey and my skin instantly cleared up. After 10 years or so, I have been able to take small amounts of honey as a treat, but since then I have avoided bee products. I’m just saying that it was helpful for me to log what I was doing, and hopefully that can help you too.

Stop Scrubbing

Stay away from certain exfoliating solutions as they are harsh to sensitive skin and can worsen inflammation. If you need an alternative exfoliating solution some people use a salicylic acid type of facial gel. Personally, given my own pre-disposition to light and very sensitive skin (and my own issues with my overly-red cheeks on occasion), I stay completely away from skin peels. I mean, think about it: if you’re already dealing with that “rosy glow” that’s now really “rosy” and isn’t really a “glow” – do you honestly want to be scrubbing, peeling and aggravating the condition any further?

There are more expensive solutions such as IPL. IPL is an Intense Pulsed Light is a laser treatment that helps with acne scars as well as eliminating broken blood vessels quickly and effectively.

Before you start with laser treatment I would highly recommend that you talk to a qualified dermatologist. There may be a less expensive effective solution for your condition as everyone is different. If you are unable consult with a dermatologist refer to tracking and follow the advice explained above.

There are many less expensive and even home remedies that have been proven to have great effects on the look of your skin. If you want to know how to get rid of redness on face for long term effects don’t just begin a regimen, stick to it. You may need to make some lifestyle changes and break current habits but it will be worth it in the long term.

Please come back and leave your comments below as I love to hear what solutions on your face are working for you whether it be home remedies, ingredients, or personal experiences.


How To Reduce Redness On Face – My Revitol Rosacea Cream Review

There are so many skin care products on the market today such as the latest Revitol Rosacea Cream.

But honestly, how do you pick the right one? You’re sick and tired of the insecurities with Rosacea. I’ve had plenty of days when I didn’t want to go out, I didn’t want to socialize, and Rosacea – or at least that endless ruddiness was keeping me from living a normal life.

I absolutely hated the fact of being insecure about the redness on my face and I was desperate to reduce it. I may have had redness worse than you or maybe you can relate to what I’ve been through. It’s kept me from dating, it’s kept me from living up to my full potential, and it’s kept me from being able to be myself.

I desperately wanted to know how to reduce redness on face so I searched the internet for latest techniques and reviews on how to get rid of my rosacea. Many of them were a little farfetched and had you put the most bizarre things on your face. Some of them actually worked temporarily and I plan to post my experiences with those on my blog as well. I read many reviews (some where actually fake) and tried numerous different products to just reduce the redness.

In one of my previous posts I explained many different ways that are highly effective in reducing redness on the face for many different types of people. I went into detail of many cost effective ways to reduce the redness as well as more expensive treatments such as laser treatment. I’m hoping to try it someday but in the meantime because I haven’t been able to afford it I’ve become an expert in a safe alternative.

If you haven’t tried it yet one of my few recommended products I mentioned was Revitol Rosacea Cream. The Revitol brand is actually very well known and are an authority in skin care products. For those of you who are looking to get a good treatment without having to worry about a prescription this is the first non-prescription over the counter cream that actually has had some pretty good results. The only thing that seems to be a drawback is that it seems to take a few weeks before there’s a significant, noticeable difference.

If you read the info above, you’ll recall that I’m also big into reading ingredients of stuff before I go ahead and buy it. I tend to Google a lot of ingredients (that is a golden nugget of advice for you right there) so that I know they are legit and deliver what they promise. You can – and should even do this with the foods you eat. They say if the words are too complicated to read it’s probably not good for you. As far as the Revitol Rosacea Cream was concerned here’s what I found out:

It has Anti-Imflammatories – Anti inflammatories are natural ingredients that help constrict your blood vessels near the surface of the skin. In turn this helps reduce visible redness and flushing.

Natural Bacteria Fighting Ingredients – These are bacteria fighting agents in Revitol Rosacea that help kill bacteria on the surface of the skin, further helping prevent breakouts. There is a school of thought recently that discusses the possibility that tiny mites that live on the skin’s surface may have something to do with this skin condition for people susceptible to it. So natural anti-bacterials are a plus.

Collagen Booster – Collagen on your face gets weakened when Rosacea is at its worst state. This makes it very difficult to heal from breakouts and irritation. With that said a collagen booster fights off Rosacea much more effectively.

Oil Regulation – Oil regulation is big when it comes to acne and when it comes to having redness on your skin or Rosacea in general. This cream definitely helped regulate the natural oils in my skin whether I was in an intense workout or even stressed out. This was one of my favorites that I haven’t gotten with any other cream.

If you didn’t get a chance to read my entire post this will sum up the pros and cons of this cream:

Pros:

  • *Definitely a cream that knew how to reduce redness on face
  • Still was effective even if I was at the gym working out or stressed out at work. My skin didn’t feel as oily as it usually does
  • Safe and natural ingredients
  • Reduced small visible blood vessels on my face
  • Softened my skin (a lot smoother, that was a bonus!)
  • I can now go out without feeling self-conscious about my skin

Cons:

  • Delivery took a little longer then I had hoped (luckily it was worth it)
  • Took a few weeks before it completely removed all of the redness.
  • Only available on revitolrosacea.com (BEWARE, a friend of mine ordered from another site and received a fake version of this cream so make sure if you decide to order then it is from revitolrosacea.com. This link will direct you to the correct site.

I hope this information has helped you and if you decide to buy it let me know what your experience is with it in the comments box below. Also, if you have any other ways on how to reduce redness on face, please post them below.


The Top 10 Tips On How To Reduce Redness On Your Face

I bet by now you’re sick and tired of having to deal with the self-consciousness of having that redness on your face and you need some good quality ideas about how to manage it.

I’ve compiled a top ten list to help you feel better about yourself and reduce that seemingly never ending “blush.” Whether it may be a facial cream or a combination of ingredients that will help to calm the redness here’s the top 10 tips on how to reduce redness on your face:

Exercise Daily

Many people underestimate the benefits on exercise because it makes an impact both internally and externally. Exercise regulates blood pressure and blood flow within our bodies. Exercising daily for at least 30 min not only reduces stress levels (stress is one contributing factor to facial redness) but it also eliminates excess energy which can cause blushing and facial redness.

Drink Lots Of Water

Woman drinking a glass of waterDrinking plenty of water not only hydrates you and keeps your energy levels up but it clears the skin and keeps your body temperature down. Some people recommend that you drink up to a gallon of water a day but you know your body better than anyone else so go for maybe 4 glasses and then record it and judge how you feel on a day to day basis. Vary your water intake and see how it has effected the redness on your face. In general, however, there is a bit of an easy formula that can help you get enough water. Take your total weight in pounds, and divide that by two – and THEN, take THAT number and drink the equivalent amount of water in ounces. Ok… I know that probably sounded confusing. :) Let’s say you weigh 150 pounds. Divide 150 by 2, which is 75. You would aim to drink 75 ounces of water throughout the day. So, if you’ve using an 8-ounce glass for your water, you’d want just over 9 glasses of water.

Reduce Stress

I touched on this a little bit but reducing stress can make the difference in itself. Stress only takes more energy to worry about something you can’t control so why as humans do we stress over it? Crazy right? Logically think of the effects of you stressing out and learn to control yourself. It will make a difference in the long run.

Meditation

Meditation is a great way to bring your mind and body as one. If you can teach your body to react a certain way (just like I was talking about with stress) you will notice an extreme difference in the redness on your face whether it be a reduction of acne, blushing, or Rosacea

Relaxation

Meditation and relaxation can go hand and and but if your not giving yourself enough time to relax and give your body rest to recuperate then your doing yourself more harm. Relaxing will lower blood pressure, help your body repair itself, lower stress levels and put your body in an overall better mood. Learn how to BREATHE! Breathe slowly, deeply, and mindfully. That in itself can do wonders!

Recommended Ingredient: Functional Keratin

Functional Keratin is an ingredient that is not only natural but it comes from the wool of sheep. It is another great ingredient to reduce inflammation and is said to be taking the skin care industry by fire. Add this ingredient to your arsenal and you will be on track to reduce redness on your face before you know it

Recommended Ingredient: Nut-Grass Root

Nut grass root is known as Cyperus Rotundus and is meant to treat and soothe irritation while reducing the redness caused by inflammation. Clinical tests have shown that nut grass root reduces pigmentation such as brown age spots ( also known as liver spots). This was shown without causing any irritation and proves that it’s possible to reduce inflammation that promotes redness on the face.

Recommended Ingredient: Coenzyme Q10

This ingredient is one of the most popular ingredients right now and is an oxidant meant to treat rosacea and greatly reduce facial redness. Scientifically speaking free radicals are harmful to the body and are toxic. They contribute to broken capillaries and the purpose of Coenzyme Q10 is to kill free radicals and repair these broken capillaries which in turn repairs rosacea or the redness on your face.

Recommended Product: Rosacea Cream

Rosacea Cream is meant to reduce the appearance of redness, reduce the appearance of small visible blood vessels, soften thickened skin, and completely eliminate the appearance of bumps or pimples.

Eat the Right Foods, Avoid Caffeine, and Don’t Smokehealthy_food_choices

I decided to take the last tip and put them into one category. If you eat right your body will reward you with healthier looking skin plain and simple. Do your research on the foods you should be eating. This includes plenty of healthy carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Both Caffeine and smoking have effects on dehydrating the body as well as other unhealthy contributions we don’t need to get into.

Here, I have listed a few things you can do on a day to day bases as well as a few product recommendations you can use together to help reduce or overall eliminate redness. Please comment below and let me know your thoughts and experiences with any of the above tips.
