- How to get rid of redness from acne?
That redness around your blemish? That’s usually due to inflammation, your body’s natural response mechanism to healing the area, which often manifests itself as redness and swelling. Here are a few tips for achieving a calmer complexion and reducing acne redness.
Rule number one — do not pick your skin. Picking, squeezing or otherwise touching your blemishes will only cause more inflammation and make the situation worse. So, let’s leave those pimples alone.
Another way to reduce redness is by applying a blemish treatment that works directly on spots. Look for formulas with salicylic acid which help unclog pores and reduce inflammation. Aloe vera or juniper stem cells are also good ingredients, as these boast skin-soothing benefits.
When it comes to the rest of your skincare, prioritise products that have been specially formulated for acne-prone complexions. Build your routine with gentle formulas that contain anti-inflammatory ingredients which will help calm breakouts and redness.
