Perhaps one of the worst things about having an upset complexion is that you not only feel it, it’s also visible to the rest of the world. Anytime you hear the word “upset” when it comes to skincare, chances are other words like “inflamed”, “splotchy” and “redness” will soon follow. Trying to deal with an upset complexion is not only a hassle, it’s very common for many people. However, there are ways you can quickly treat these kinds of issues so you can move on with your life.
Each person’s complexion is different and depending on their skin type, chances are the skincare approach to dealing with upset skin may vary. However, there are some instances where there is a universal treatment to provide a solution. By now you know that your skin not only tends to react to the outside elements you expose it to but the way your body is feeling as well. Do you tend to experience small red splotches on your complexion seemingly out of nowhere? Chances are the rash is there for a reason. Stress and anxiety are two culprits that are mainly responsible for such occurrences. If you find that you suffer from this issue often, the first step is to calm down. Do what it takes to bring your stress or anxiety level to a minimum. Only by doing this will your skin start to behave and go back to normal. For an even quicker fix, you can also apply an herbal cream that is designed to soothe upset skin. After dabbing on the cream, unwind with a good book, watch a movie or a get a massage to get your complexion back to normal (believe it or not, having sex is also a great way to relieve tension, stress and anxiety for a clearer complexion!).
Another common way skin becomes upset is due to the presence of breakouts. This is an especially common experience if you have acne prone skin. Pimples tend to come with a bit of redness around the area, which can make for an unsightly appearance. One of the best treatments for bringing down the swelling of acne prone skin is to apply an OTC hydrocortisone cream. When using skincare products make sure to choose those that contain ingredients like chamomile, mint or aloe vera. These ingredients not only pamper your skin naturally but help to reduce the appearance of breakouts and eliminate redness.
Does your face tend to get really dry, flaky and red? This is obviously due to your skin not receiving enough moisture or it may be your complexion’s way of reacting to exposure to extremely hot temperatures. Sometimes it will take more than just moisturizer to get your upset skin back up to par. Make it a point to use lukewarm water when washing your face and apply your facial moisturizer while your face is still damp. This provides extra moisture that stays sealed in. When looking for skincare products, choose items that contain ceramides, which work to rebuild the loss of your skin’s natural oils.
