In this time of social distancing, is anyone else out there noticing some rather unwelcome "guests" popping up where they weren't invited — and definitely well within six feet? Yes, we're talking about the blemishes, redness, and rough patches emerging from times of increased stress (and extended time indoors in drier air).
While there are spot treatments to specifically target these issues, you can actually soothe the area at various steps in your entire skin-care routine. After all, swapping in a gentler face wash or looking for calming ingredients like colloidal oatmeal, probiotics, and aloe vera in moisturizers can help, too. And whether this development stems from existing skin conditions (like rosacea, eczema, and dermatitis) or is a new reaction to protective face masks, there are plenty of solutions right at your fingertips.
To help you find it, we looked for the skin-care products at Sephora that had the best ratings and reviews for anyone dealing with irritated skin. Ahead, find the top serums, masks, toners, creams, and other things to give your stressed skin a helping hand.
