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:
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
Drinking 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.
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 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
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.
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.
