There are a whole load of reasons for redness on the face, many of which can be easily combatted by using the right product. Here at Pure Beauty we’ve got a whole arsenal of anti-redness products to choose from so we thought we’d tell you about five of our favourites, to help you redness redness in a trice.

It’s highly soothing and moisturising, and can be used on all skin types from oily to normal. It’s also perfect for use after cosmetic procedures on the face is it’s neutral and delicate, helping to calm the skin and aid healing.
Sometimes, sensitive skin can feel tight and uncomfortable and it can be hard to correct with normal products. This mask from Decleor is an intense mask to help soothe and calm feelings of discomfort and sensitivity. It gives the skin a protective barrier whilst intensely nourishing, to give moisture and defend against external irritants which might make redness worse.
If redness is an ongoing problem for you, you’ll need a product which you can use every day, like this solution from Elemis. It contains centella asiatica, malt extract and brown algae, which combine to regenerate skin cells and protect them from the breakdown of collagen, as well as reducing the appearance of capillaries on the surface of the skin, which can look unsightly. It contains no parabens, SLS or other nasties which might increase irritation.
Dermalogica Gentle Soothing Booster is a broad-use product which can be used to soothe everything from acne to razor burn and is completely oil-free, which means it won’t make your face greasy. It’s ideally applied before your regular moisturiser to soothe sensitive, delicate skin, while reducing irritation. It balances natural moisture levels, leaving your face free of redness and excess sebum.
The last thing you want when your skin is feeling sensitised is a thick, heavy product making it feel worse. That’s why Decleor developed this light, soothing cream which helps to nourish and protect the skin from irritants by strengthening its protective barrier whilst feeling completely weightless. It contains lots of natural ingredients, such as essential milks of cotton and lily, concentrated rose water, cotton lipids, pine and grape polyphenols and extract of green macatia, which combine to leave your skin feeling soft, supple and comfortable.
