Do you have skin redness? If you do, it is almost certainly from an inflammatory response on the part of your body’s immune system. Skin inflammation is not uncommon, although when you look in the mirror, you may feel like you are the only person in the world afflicted with this problem. Interestingly, inflammation is actually a crucial step your body takes to heal itself, but because the side effect is a red, swollen complexion, you are probably not very pleased with your appearance on certain days. Fortunately, there are more options to conceal this healing process other than simply caking on additional makeup or wearing a thick foundation or one that is too dark for your skin.
Inflammation comes and goes, but if you are like some people, a face that constantly appears to be blushing may be your cross to bear. If you are continuously red in the face, one of the following triggers may be to blame:
Acne contains bacteria that may trigger inflammation, and therefore you may not only have to deal with pimples, but may also end up frustrated with people constantly asking you if you are sunburned. Allowing your skin to “breathe” can help keep excess inflammation at bay by allowing a good airflow and keeping your pores open. Pimples produce excessive amounts of bacteria laden sebum and keeping your skin moisturized will help prevent side effects from this substance.
There are lots of things we can do to our skin that may seem beneficial at first, but do not achieve lasting positive results. Top industry estheticians us that many people use utterly ridiculous items if they jump on the exfoliation bandwagon, even things out of their own refrigerators. However, what these products are actually doing is triggering more inflammation. For this reason, if you have fallen into the trap of using sandpaper-like harsh cleansers or fruity acids in an attempt to clear up your complexion, you may simply be causing abrasive redness that will stay with you long after your “inventive” formulas have been washed away. Although it is important to do what makes your skin feel best, if you are attempting a DIY facial, remember to choose gentle products.
Allergies to specific foods can often cause skin inflammation, whether major or minor. However, certain ingredients can also contribute to redness more than you may realize. The industry’s best and brightest also tell customers struggling with skin problems that autoimmune response inflammation is often a direct result of food, and from a nutritional standpoint, most people eat a lot of inflammatory foods, such as those high in omega 6 oils. This is particularly troublesome for diabetics, as this disease can cause inflammation of the skin. Fare that contains gluten, certain carbohydrates and processed vegetable oils can only add to this problem. Therefore, eating salmon and kale in lieu of a burger and fries may not clear up your complexion instantly, but it will certainly help.
Almost everyone has stress in their life, and you are probably no different. If you already are suffering from skin inflammation, you have probably noticed that when your nerves are on edge or certain negative things are going on in your life, the inflammation seems even worse. For example, finals week may be coming up, you may be moving or having relationship troubles with your significant other. These things may not seem to have anything to do with your skin, but they have a definite impact because stress changes how your immune system reacts, thus encouraging inflammation. Try meditating, doing yoga or other calming exercises and simple things such as resting and doing several sessions of slow breathing. These are all small steps that will help you achieve a clearer, more beautiful complexion.
