From Concern to Countertop: Skin Redness

We're excited to unveil a brand new feature, where we'll examine a specific skin concern many of you face – like breakouts, sensitivity, or fine lines – and give you the remedy recommended straight from the professionals. Let's get started: Are you seeing redness? Then let's send your skin to anger management!

THE CONCERN: REDNESS

You may see increased skin redness because you have a true Sensitive skin type – that's the skin you were born with. Or, you may see redness because you have Sensitized skin (you could call it "temperamental" skin) – that's angered by over-exfoliation, environmental aggressors or even something you ate. Redness can appear at any age – and usually increases as you get older.

PUT THESE SENSITIVE SKIN CARE PRODUCTS ON YOUR COUNTERTOP:

Start with a cleanser with complexion-calming, foaming oils like olive, safflower, hazelnut, jojoba, kissi seed and rosemary (yes – oils are good for the skin!). Sensitive Skin Cleanser will calm and cleanse without side effects.

Hydration is crucial to keep redness in check. After cleansing, saturate skin with Calmitude Hydration Solution – it's packed with soothing licorice root and white tea leaf extracts to help skin become more comfortable and less reactive to daily stressors.

Protection against sensitivities and visible aggravation is next – and Stress Solution is your super skin serum to fight redness. Smooth it on to calm and cool as it locks in moisture and improves texture.

NewBeauty magazine named Calmitude Sensitive Skin Moisturizer the Best Product For Alleviating Redness. Here's why: It was formulated with an advanced blend of desensitizing extracts, and is completely free of irritants that can upset delicate skin. It moisturizes while addressing the root cause of redness and irritation.

BOOK THIS TREATMENT:

Anyone with sensitive, sensitized or just plain angry skin should see a skin care pro for a series of facials that will tame their redness and bring complexion peace. We recommend the Bioelements Custom Blend Facial (hint: we usually will) Why? Because it can be customized at every step with redness-reducing masks, massages and treatments you can't get anywhere else. Find a Bioelements Spa near you here.

Thanks for your quick resonse. I will definitely try one of the serums first before applying the Calmitude Moisturizer. Sounds like just what I am missing.nAgain, thank you so much for your quick response. Your products are amazing.

Hi Lisa! (I know you had asked this in my other post, but I’m going to respond here, too, just so others with your same question can see it): Try applying Moisture x10 or Stress Solution first, before your Calmitude Sensitive Skin Moisturizer. Moisture x10 is formulated with hyaluronic acid, which will bind moisture to your skin; Stress Solution will help lock in and prevent moisture loss – it also provides extra soothing for sensitive skin.

My skin is ultra sensitive, red, and very dry. Is there a moisturizer I can use perhaps on top of the Calmitude Skin Moisturizer as I feel like that alone does not provide enough moisture?

Hi Randi – When you cleanse, I recommend you use cool or lukewarm water and Decongestant Cleanser. Never rub your skin – blot it with a clean dry towel. Then, use Calmitude Hydrating Solution – it will instantly reduce redness and hydrate (something oily, sensitive skin needs). Follow with Beyond Hydration – a non-greasy gel moisturizer that will support and strengthen. nnI’d stick with this agenda to see how your skin responds. You don’t want to “overload” sensitive skin. Once you know your skin is responding well, Probiotic Anti-aging Serum would be a great addition, as it reduces visible signs of iritation and helps strenthen skin.

I have sensitive skin (born with it). After I cleanse, I am bright red. When I am not wearing make up, people ask if I was in the sun. I have blue eyes and strawberry blonde hair. I wear the second lightest shades of make up. nI also have dealt with my share of acne. Luckily it is now under control thanks to my dermatologist. I use Retina cream overnight. At first it made me ultra sensitive, red and flaky, but my skin adapted with time and is now almost always breakout free.nSo… my question is, what products should I use for red sensitive and oily skin? Should i go with a sensitive or oily skin cleanser? I am afraid to put oil o n my skin that was looked like a pepperoni pizza. Luckily, I have not scaring (did not have cystic acne).

Hi Lauren – I notice that you didn’t mention sunscreen in the list of products that you use – UV damage can cause all of the things that you are experiencing. It’s so important to wear a daily sunscreen to protect your skin from UV exposure. On a daily basis, unprotected exposure can lead to increase sensitivity, redness, capillary damage and, of course, premature aging and more serious issues such as skin cancer. I would suggest either Sun Diffusing Protector SPF15 or SPF50 FaceScreen.

I have had sensitive skin my entire life and I am also a very dry skin type. I have been experiencing more and more redness lately and increased sensitivity and I feel like my skin is getting worse and worse at a much faster rate and I am only 19. I am getting broken capillaries around my nose and on my eyelids and it is becoming concerning. Is there a product that I can use that will help me because this really sucks. I already have stress solution, oxygen cocktail, all the calmitude products, measured micrograins, sensitive skin cleanser..i mean i nearly have it all.

Thank you, Barbara. I will give that a try!

Hi Andrea – Measured Micrograins is a more gentle exfoliant that will still help unclog pores on your nose and chin while it removes dulling surface flakes and smoothes fine lines. You can use it as a scrub, or let it dry like a mask, then wet your fingertips and massage it gently to exfoliate. Try using it 1-3 times a week and see how your skin responds. It’s formulated with soothing colloidal oatmeal – I think your skin will love it.

This was just the info I needed! I have had red cheeks, chin and forhead for a few years now—seems the older I get the more of an “attitude” my skin gets. I never thought I had sensitive skin, it never hurt. Well, today I changed my skincare routine to incorporate the Calmitude products, my skin feels better already, it doesn’t have that tight feeling. The question I have is what product/s do I use for a mask? I have blackheads on my nose and chin. I have used Kerafole and Pumice Peel for exfoliation in the past and now I think those might be too much?? Any recommendations? Thank you!

Hi Kelly – This is a great question. The products (and especially the Bioelements Custom Blend Treatment) I mentioned in the post above do more than address issues with redness and sensitivity. Whenever you use products that gently cleanse, tone, hydrate and soothe the skin, you are helping it to perform at its best. These products work together to soften fine lines, keep the skin hydrated and plump – while strengthening the skin’s protective barrier. The result? Lines will naturally be less visible, and skin will be softer, smoother and more vibrant. The ingredients we use ‘feed’ the skin and protect it – we are helping the skin help itself, which will make it stronger – that’s the true definition of ‘anti-aging’.

This is great advice for treating sensitive or sensitized skin. I would like to know how we can treat sensitive or sensitized skin for sensitivity and aging….lines and wrinkles to be more specific.
