What are the Main Causes of Facial Redness? 

There are many different causes of a red complexion, including:

  • Physical damage to the skin's natural barrier (e.g. over-exfoliating or using harsh body products on the face—yes, we're referring to that exfoliating mitt!)

  • Climate (air conditioning, extreme changes in climate, flying)

  • Pollution

  • Lack of sleep

  • Stress

  • Medications

  • Illnesses and impaired immunity

  • Diet (such as one low in vitamins B & C, or eating lots of processed foods)

  • High alcohol consumption

  • Caffeinated beverages, particularly coffee

With so many causes, it may seem impossible to diagnose your skin and find out exactly why it's acting up. Fortunately, Skinstitut offers products that can cool and soothe your skin, no matter the cause of your irritation.

Which Skinstitut Skin Care Product Should I Use to Reduce Redness?

Skinstitut tells us, 'Topical B vitamins are a great inclusion in your regime if redness and flushing are a concern, as are other soothing and calming ingredients like Canadian willowherb (anti-inflammatory) and cucumber oil (soothing and healing).'

If you want to minimise redness, you should opt for products from Skinstitut's Calming range, all of which are gentle on the skin and reduce the risk of irritation.

Skinstitut advocates a five-step system: cleanse, exfoliate, correct, hydrate, and protect. If you suffer from redness, the brand's skincare experts recommend:

Step 1 - Cleansing

This gentle gel cleanser is formulated for sensitive, dry or irritated skin types. Skinstitut's Gentle Cleanser is designed to remove makeup, dirt and impurities, without stripping the skin of moisture. Containing powerful antioxidants such as Vitamin E and Aloe Vera to soothe skin, leaving it feeling soft and supple.

Step 2 - Exfoliation

This unqiue skin care exfoliant is formulated with a nourishing blend of ingredients such as Papaya extract, Chamomile, and Hyaluonic Acid to gently resurface the skin, minimise redness, moisturise and encourage hydration. Gentle enough to be used on skin struggling with rosacea, eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis.

Step 3 - Correcting

Designed to help with multiple skin issues caused by environmental damage, such as pigmentation, uneven texture, and lines. Containing beneficial ingredients such as Copper and Peptides, this serum offers hydration for moisture-deprived skin; firming to those in need of anti-ageing skin care; and correction of skin discolouration. Rejuvenate 15 can be used on all skin types.

  • We also recommend using Skinstitut Multi-Active Mist as a skin corrector. Ideal for all skin types, this facial hydrating spray is especially beneficial for those with sensitive and dehydrated skin that is showing early signs of ageing.

Step 4 - Moisturiser

This lightweight moisturising formula contains unique peptides to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, soften and smooth the skin whilst working to improve the overall texture of the skin. A key beneficial ingredient in Skinstitut's Moisture Defence is the Kakadu Plum. This native Australian plant is a powerful antioxidant with its potent source of Vitamin C. Best suited to normal and combination skin, this moisturiser hydrates skin without clogging pores.

Skinstitut also offers moisturisers that are specifically designed for different skin types:

Step 5 - Protect Your Skin Barrier

Containing a rich blend of nutrients to soothe and cool the skin and reduce any redness and irritation. Ideal for use on sensitive, dry/irritated, inflamed, sun burned and skin with rosacea. Skinstitut's Laser Aid is deemed a gentle product suitable for all skin types (and pregnant women). This multipurpose product than can be used as a lightweight moisturiser or an antibacterial mask.

All of these products reduce the risk of increased irritation and redness, and are perfect for sensitive skin. However, if you're looking to actively minimise existing redness, Skinstitut Laser Aid will be most beneficial to your routine.

What is Skinstitut Laser Aid?

Skinstitut Laser Aid is a multipurpose product offering maximum protection as it works to heal skin. Laser Aid contains a rich blend of vitamin concentrates, botanical extracts, and antioxidants that strengthen and repair skin integrity, helping to nourish the skin and alleviate redness or discomfort.

Laser Aid can be used as a non-steroidal alternative to hydrocortisone cream whenever inflammation, redness, or irritation arises. This product instantly cools and soothes hot, reactive, or sun-exposed skin whilst repairing damage.

Because of its powerful ability to actually draw heat out of the skin, Laser Aid is recommended for rosacea, microdermabrasion, waxing, and shaving. This wonder product even makes a great mask for breakout-prone skin due to its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
