Red spots, pimples, inflammation… What’s the best way to deal with imperfections and redness?
On April 11, 2019, Jean Coutu’s Instagram community asked a top cosmetician. Here’s a look at some of the questions , answers and recommendations to keep in mind in case of a red alert!
A mask is an excellent addition to your routine: it complements your daily skin care by targeting specific needs. But it’s best not to use it more than once or twice a week, so you don’t overload your skin. For redness, choose a product that’s both soothing and moisturizing to calm inflammation and make your skin more resistant to irritants.
Our suggestion: The Antirougeurs Calm soothing mask by Avène is perfume-free and ultra-rich in thermal water, offering instant relief!
Diffuse and localized redness, discomfort, tightness, overheating, phases of acute irritation.
You can’t go wrong with a green-pigmented formula. Because green is opposite red on the colour chart, the two colours combined neutralize each other. It’s the perfect tool for erasing unwanted redness and stubborn pimples.
Our suggestion: The Couvrance concealer stick by Avène. Perfect for sensitive skin, it goes on easily, stays on all day and hides even the most obvious imperfections.
Corrects and evenly hides severe skin imperfections. Fragrance-free, preservative-free, paraben-free.
The most important thing is to use gentle, non-irritating products. Use mattifying formulas that control sebum production and tone down shine throughout the day. Fortifying, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory ingredients are also helpful to combat the bacteria responsible for pimples and to strengthen blood vessel walls to reduce redness.
Our suggestion: The Effaclar line by La Roche-Posay, a set of soothing treatments, rich in thermal water and specially formulated for oily skin that’s prone to imperfections.
Sebo-regulating moisturizer. Controls shine and reduces pores. Oily skin. Suitable for sensitive skin. Oil-free blotting effect texture: Proven long lasting mattifying effect. Non-comedogenic. Tested under dermatological control.
Pore-refining anti-aging serum. Fights imperfections and the signs of aging for clearer, younger-looking skin. Enlarged pores. Aging, dull skin. Tested on oily skin.
It’s important to know the difference between acne scars and pigment spots left by healed pimples. Acne scars form hollows or bumps on the surface of the skin and don’t fade over time. Pigment stains, however, can be reduced using products rich in moisturizing and lightening agents: choose exfoliating formulas with glycolic acid or vitamin C.
An ultra-gentle eye-contour treatment, free from irritating agents (so long, alcohol, dye and perfumes!) and made with ingredients that reduce irritations and discomfort, like thermal or floral water, etc.
Our suggestion: Toleriane Ultra Eyes by La Roche-Posay, a minimalist formula that provides immediate relief.
Intense soothing care for the eye contour. Immediate relief and significant decrease of itching, discomfort, heating sensations, and redness. Allergic and/or intolerant skin.
