I believe, it is best to identify the cause of redness first, in order to pick and choose your skincare products wisely.
A few tips:
- Choose soothing and natural ingredients like aloe, oat, cucumber, licorice or chamomile that actually has been proven to calm redness.
- Wear sunscreen in the morning
- Keep a simple skin care routine
- Last but not least, do not pick on your acne
