Summer can be a really hard time on one’s skin. Between the dryness or the humidity, the salt, the sun, and the heat, it’s easy to find oneself running around looking red like a cherry. Personally, I tend to get it really badly around the nose and chin. When that happens, try out these beauty hacks to get you back to normal.
1. DIY Honey Cinnamon Face Mask
This honey, cinnamon, and nutmeg face mask are easy to put together with stuff you probably have in your kitchen already. It helps kill bacteria that cause redness and is a light exfoliant.
2. Eucerin Redness Relief Daily Perfecting Lotion
This stuff has sunblock, moisturizer, and even has a subtle green tint to help neutralize redness from rosacea or just a nasty sunburn.
3. Green Concealer
I know it seems crazy, but a green concealer can help neutralize redness from pimples, scars, or just red splotches. Use it underneath regular concealer.
4. Make Up For Ever Microperfecting Primer
Primer sets up your skin for foundation and color cosmetics. Picking a primer with a bit of color can help even out your skin tone. Try the green to even out redness.
5. Peppermint Mask
Peppermint can help reduce redness and inflammation. This tip would have you mix leaves in a food processor with a bit of lemon juice to use as an anti-redness treatment that will also make you smell awesome.
6. Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage
This stuff is the best concealer for redness around the nose. It has two colors that you blend together to match your skin tone. Take a tiny bit with a little brush and apply it in feathery strokes around your nostrils, and pat to blend. This also works excellently on pimples.
7. Get Yourself a Humidifier
Sensitive skin tends to need moisture. Get yourself a humidifier to try to keep your skin’s environment nice.
8. Clean Your Makeup Brushes
Makeup brushes can get full of gross bacteria that can make your skin’s inflammation worse. Clean them well and often.
9. Cooling Cucumber Mask
Ooh, doesn’t this sound just lovely? I kind of want to drink it. This cucumber, aloe, and coconut oil mask are perfect for summer.
10. Green Tea Mask
Green tea is great for your skin and is reported to be highly effective against facial redness. Try this to help remove redness and puffiness.
