Skin that is especially sensitive is often prone to frustrating redness and inflammation. If your skin tends to experience frequent bouts of ruddiness, instead of resigning yourself to a life of always caking on the foundation and concealer, think about what you can do to gain control over the situation. Fortunately, many facial serums can be effective in taming temperamental red complexions.
Not many things can be more annoying than battling the signs of aging while simultaneously dealing with redness and the possibility of acne. Get a grip on both of your skin woes with a multitasking anti-aging serum that calms sensitive skin while deeply moisturizing and eliminating wrinkles and fine lines. Opt for a fragrance-free, lightweight moisturizer that consists of a combination of hydrating hyaluronic acids and relaxing green tea extracts and caffeine.
If you're a fan of natural, botanical skin care solutions, use a plant extract-based skin serum to reduce your facial redness. Soothe your stressed out complexion with a serum that combines essential acids, red raspberry juice, cucumber and sesame seed oil to enrich, calm and hydrate. For those serious about the eco-friendly, organic approach, make sure the serum is free of potentially harsh preservatives and chemicals.
Redness is a common symptom of rosacea, a type of chronic skin inflammation. If your ruddiness is associated with the condition, look for a serum that caters specifically to its needs. Find a fragrance-free, soothing and fast-absorbing gel serum that will even out your complexion through a blend of antioxidants (vitamins E and A) and bisobolol, the anti-inflammatory agent.
Give your skin tone a smooth and consistent look with a balancing serum. Get back on track to attaining complexion perfection by applying a non-oily, lightweight facial serum that deeply hydrates as it reduces persistent signs of ruddiness. Look for calming, firming and softening ingredients including peptides, retinyl palmitate, ginseng root and vitamin E -- all of which will work together to make your skin appear supple, even-toned and youthful.
