How to Get Rid of Red Skin – DERMCLASS


Let’s talk about red skin. Now, this is something
that’s actually really common. I know for me, I experienced red skin a lot
when I moved to Canada. The shift in climate really caused
an imbalance in my skin, and especially my hands and my legs
got really dry and really red. And it took me a long time
to figure out how to treat it. I was the kind of person,
I tried to use every single product I could to treat the issue and then
when that wasn’t working I realized I had to focus more on
using the right kind of products instead. I decided to speak to a dermatologist and see what she had to say
about how to treat red skin. Red skin is a sign of inflammation,
and there are many different causes of inflammation in the skin. Some of the more common ones
are allergic reactions. It could be to products,
or it could be seasonal allergies. Rosacea and acne
can also leave red marks on the skin. You may also see redness from psoriasis
or certain types of eczema. And as well, we’ll notice red skin
if your skin is over-processed, whether it’s procedures that you’re doing, or too many products that you’re using,
or the incorrect products. How to treat redness in the skin. If we’re looking at the most common causes
of redness in the skin, the first one would be allergic
or irritant contact dermatitis. In that case, you really need
to find out the product that is causing the irritation or the allergy, and remove that from your daily routine. With rosacea, people find that
their skin is very sensitive to products. So, a lot of times with rosacea, we really need to pare back the products that we’re using, and choose products that are more gentle. So, products that are fragrance-free,
alcohol-free and soothing to the skin. One of my favourite pieces of advice is
that less is more. So, this can be just in the number of products
you’re using in general. You don’t want to keep throwing
different things at the issue. But also in the product itself. So, when you look at the ingredient list, products with fewer ingredients are
probably going to be less irritating and less of a trigger for skin
that’s red or sensitive. If you have redness in your skin
that’s persistent or becoming painful, please consult a board-certified
dermatologist for proper medical care. So, as the doctor highlighted,
you want to be using the right kind of products
to treat your red skin. Use a gentle cleanser,
a gentle, alcohol-free moisturizer, and you’ve really got to think about
how you’re applying these products, and the impact that that can have
on your skin as well. So, when you’re washing your hands,
when you get out of the shower, pat your skin dry rather than rubbing it. And when you’re applying your moisturizer, equally, pat it into the skin
and you’ll find that it’s a lot more comfortable. You also want to try and use
non-comedogenic products, and that won’t block the skin and clog the pores. I really hope you found this useful. If you find that the redness
doesn’t go away and the problem persists,
then it might be time to consult a skincare professional
to get to the root cause of the problem.
