A hint of rosy cheeks is undoubtedly pretty, but when skin redness becomes blotchy, angry looking or out of control, it can be extremely frustrating and perhaps even painful to deal with. There can be several reasons for unsightly skin redness, the commonest being Rosacea, broken capillaries, inflammatory acne flare-ups and general skin irritation. If you’re seeing red over RED, here are 5 amazing products that you might wish to consider, to radically transform your skincare and makeup routine for a clear, flawless mien.

VBeam Perfecta Laser Treatment
“Redness and persistent flushing are best treated with lasers,” advises Dr. Toby Hui, senior medical consultant with the SW1 Clinic. “Most patients who underwent our Harmony Skin Program reported a significant improvement in their symptoms following 4 to 6 sessions of Candela VBeam Perfecta laser treatment, with up to 80% affirming that they would do it again either for clearance or maintenance purposes.”
The VBeam Perfecta Laser delivers an intense but gentle burst of yellow light to selectively targeted areas of the skin. This light is absorbed by blood vessels and the heat causes the telangiectasia to collapse or shrink without collateral damage to surrounding healthy skin. In addition, the laser energy can also help stimulate new collagen formation, resulting in a certain degree of skin ‘remodeling’ with anti-aging benefits! It has a special Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD), which delivers a very cold spray to the skin just before the laser pulse is emitted and thus helps to minimize the discomfort during treatment, with each pulses feeling nothing more than an elastic band being ‘snapped’ against the skin. The treatment is largely bearable especially with topical anesthetic cream and immediately after, the area may appear red and mildly swollen (sunburn like). It is advisable to use gentle cleansers and moisturizers during the healing phase and to avoid scrubs or potentially irritating products such as those containing retinols and AHAs.
The Harmony Skin Program is a comprehensive approach designed to tackle the major skin woes of Rosacea, battling skin redness, broken capillaries, inflamed zits and irritated skin efficiently while delivering maximal skin rejuvenating benefits. It further tones up weakened collagen, beefing up skin health to withstand future environmental stress, promoting a toned and supple skin while adding a luminous radiance to the complexion. Thanks to its complexion regulating properties, this luxe beauty fix also sets up the skin to reap the most benefits from other beauty products, restoring the skin innate hydro-balance and coax it to a stress-free haven.
