Your questions… and our answers!

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!

I’m looking for a daily anti-redness mask. What do you recommend?

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!

What product is best for hiding redness?

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.

My skin is greasy, sensitive and prone to imperfections. Quite a combo! What do you recommend for my daily routine?

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.

How can I get rid of acne scars?

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.

I tend to get red spots near my eyes. What do you recommend for that?

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.
