Let’s face it! Redness happens! It isn’t pretty and we don’t like it, so when it does, there are many ways to give your skin some much-needed love. Your first line of defense is to use soothing ingredients: products containing niacinamide, sulfurallantoin, caffeine, licorice root, chamomile, aloe and cucumber can help calm redness. 

Redness and blotchiness are caused by general inflammation or dilated, broken blood vessels and capillaries. All of this can be triggered by sun damage, inflammation from certain products, excessive heat or cold exposure, lifestyle habits, genetics, or a skin condition called rosacea. 

Blotchy skin and uneven skin tone can also be caused by conditions you inherited genetically. For example, the skin can produce more melanin and become darker as a result of Addison’s disease. It can also become lighter in conditions like vitiligo and albinism. Whatever your condition may be, there are ways to help.

Some of the answers to calming redness and uneven skin tone are cleansing the affected area with soap and water, taking medications like antihistamines to minimize irritation or applying topical skin care treatments like calamine lotion to reduce skin redness. Some home remedies you might use include cool, wet compresses to help irritated skin and applying ointments or creams to avoid irritated and cracked, dry skin. Also consider taking a warm oatmeal bath and use oatmeal based products which acts as a shield against irritants. You might also try a honey mask for at least 30 min. Honey is a natural anti-inflammatory ingredient that will soothe and calm the skin. All of these steps should provide some relief. When they are not enough look to skin care treatments as they could be the answer you are looking for.

Laser skin resurfacing treatments penetrate the skin to kick-start collagen production levels, which helps enhance cellular turnover rates. If you suffer from blotchy skin, wrinkles, and any other skin problems, laser skin resurfacing could be your all-in-one solution. Some laser therapy solutions that target red blotchy skin are Broadband Light Therapy, Halo Laser Therapy and Microlaser Peel combined with Profractional Laser. These treatments work at the cellular level to increase cell turnover which creates collagen production and elasticity. Laser treatments are designed to target redness, blemishes and uneven skin tones. There is some downtime with laser skin treatments, but the rewards are endless and amazing.
