Good Question: Redness-Reducing Moisturizer

Question: Like many short-sighted teens, I didn’t heed my mother’s advice when I was in high school and picked at acne on my face. Now, I’m in my twenties and have various red marks left as battle scars. Does anyone know a face moisturizer that may treat this?

Answer: I myself have battled sensitive skin and redness since I was a young girl, and know how frustrating blotchy, red, uneven skin can be. To start with, I suggest adopting a sensitive skin care regime that allows the skin to heal. Our guide to Sensitive Skin Products has lots of great suggestions for face wash and moisturizers.

In addition, you should use a redness-reducing serum. Two products I use are La Roche-Posay’s Rosaliac Anti-Redness Moisturizer ($30 @ Skinstore.com) and LIERAC’s Apaisance-Specific Care for Redness & Visable Signs of Couperoseicon ($40 @ Drugstore.com). You might also benefit from Crabtree & Evelyn’s Fade Serum ($28 @ CrabtreeandEvelyn.com). Each one is safe for sensitive skin, I haven’t had a breakout yet, and my redness has diminished substantially since I began using them.

Hopefully they’ll work for you, too!
