Red Red Go Away!

Redness in the face can come from many different sources such as sensitive skin, sun exposure, environmental agents that irritate your skin, allergies to a product, rosacea and even foods. If you have ever turned red after eating a specific food, you should immediately eliminate it. Foods to cut out entirely until the redness stops are: alcohol, spicy foods, sugar and caffeine. Here's a little do it yourself chamomile face wash remedy to help soothe redness as well as two of my favorite gentle calming cremes.

  • Steep chamomile tea in hot water for ten minutes.
  • Let it cool and then use it as a face wash twice a day for two days.
  • Refrigerate the tea in between washings

Dr. Weil for Origins Plantidote™ Mega-Mushroom Face Cream, $60, is not only a mouthful to say, but it's a fab new product containing chaga mushrooms which is an anti-inflammatory ingredient. Dr. Weil believes that many illnesses and damage to the skin are caused by inflammation.

This product benefits the skin in addition to improving its appearance. I haven't tried it yet, so I am anxious to hear your reviews.

For one more anti-redness cream,

YonKa Creme 11, $42, is a night treatment creme that helps sooth and calm irritated skin. It is suitable for all skin types and it helps repair traumatized, sunburned or chapped skin. It acts as an anti-inflammatory and helps to heal on contact.

Keep in mind, that creme 11 isn't something that you want to use everyday. After a couple of consecutive uses, I've found that it can become a little drying. After washing your face apply a toner and then apply creme 11 in the evening in a thick layer.

I think Eucerin has a redness relief product line (tried to order a free sample ages ago and has never come). I had always heard a touch of witch hazel helps calm redness/puffiness. Just from my extensive knowledge of diaper rash (the horror) hydrocortisone is a nice quick fix for spot treatment (redness and inflammation).

I heard somewhere, that some products (creme, foundations etc) have some kind of green pigment in them to even out the redness of your skin. Any info on that?
