WHY YOU HAVE IT AND HOW TO FIX IT.
When you have red, blotchy skin, it can be a real embarrassment. It’s often hard to find a concealer or foundation that will truly cover all of the areas without making you look like your face is thick with makeup. What might be best in this case is to get to the root of the problem and try to fix it. Finding the cause of your blotchy skin will be the first step in getting you on your way to healthy, clear skin.
Take a look below at some of these major causes for splotchy skin and see how you can remedy these problems starting today!
YOU ARE EXFOLIATING TOO OFTEN.
Did you know that you only need to exfoliate a couple of times per week? A lot of us are exfoliating way too often, which leads to blotchy, inflamed, irritated skin. Try using an exfoliator that is gentler on your skin, such as our Multi-Perfecting Facial Scrub, and reducing the amount of times you exfoliate per week.
YOUR SOAP IS TOO HARSH.
When choosing a bar soap to use in the shower, you want one that is gentle enough that it won’t strip the skin of its natural oils because those oils help your skin to lock in moisture, which is vital for keeping skin healthy and supple. Try to use a soap that is gentle and fragrance-free.
YOUR BODY STAYS HOT TOO LONG AFTER EXERCISING.
We are definitely encouraging you to continue exercising because it’s so good for your health but if your skin is getting blotchy, it could be because your body is staying hot too long after exercising. Try to cool your body down by wrapping your neck in a cold, wet towel. This cool towel will help to regulate your body temperature and will feel great right after a hard workout.
YOU SKIP THE SUNSCREEN.
This is one of the easiest and best things you can do for your skin – apply sunscreen every day, regardless of the time of year it is, or if it’s a cloudy day. UV rays can severely damage your skin and lead to skin cancer, which is nothing to take lightly. Makeup and lotions can sometimes be found with sunscreen, which makes it really easy to apply but if your products don’t, take one minute to apply actual sunscreen to your entire body before stepping out for the day.
Red, blotchy, problematic skin doesn’t have to be something you suffer with for life. Take a little bit of time to determine what is the cause of that problem and then by making small changes, you can get back the healthy, glowing skin that you loved so much.
