Products to Even Out Your Skin Tone for Holiday Season
Between Christmas sweaters and Rudolf’s nose, the color of the winter season is very obviously red. And even though we’re full of holiday cheer here at Skincare.com, we aren’t always in the spirit to embrace how redness can make you look. Whether you’re experiencing noticeable redness or a rosy hue, there are a handful of products that can help neutralize the look of a flushed tone in both the short term and the long term. So listen up and stay tuned, because we’ve listed our favorite products to address the look of redness, ahead.
This BB cream is a Christmas miracle worker when neutralizing the look of redness. Initially, the lightweight cream is green, but upon application, it adapts to your skin tone. It might apply like makeup, but the product actually has great skin-care benefits, too. It hydrates, corrects skin tone and perfects the complexion.
Holiday shopping stressing you out? Sit back, buy some skin-care sets and treat yourself to Kiehl’s Cannabis Sativa Oil Concentrate. The facial oil is a must if you suffer from blemishes or stressed-out skin. With calming ingredients like cannabis sativa seed and oregano oils, this Kiehl’s pick helps to calm and re-balance skin’s hydration levels. Plus, it’s non-comedogenic and perfect for problem skin.
If neutral skin is all you want for Christmas, Erborian has you covered. The Erborian CC Red Correct is an editor favorite and a great addition to your skin-care shelf. It layers well under makeup and helps hydrate and illuminate your complexion, while also camouflaging the appearance of imperfections, dryness and wrinkles.
Anyone with sensitive or easily irritated skin, knows it can be hard to find a product that targets visible redness. If you’re looking to even your tone, try integrating this La Roche-Posay serum into your daily routine. It has a gel-like consistency and is formulated with ambophenol, a natural extract, soothing neurosensine, and light reflectors to give the appearance of an even tone.
The jar may be red, but the cream neutralizes the visible signs of ruddiness on your face. It’s a moisturizer and full-coverage color-correcting hybrid that’s blendable and long-lasting. Plus, it works to camouflage blemishes and discoloration temporarily, while also neutralizing your skin tone.
Layering a multitude of skin-care products isn’t for everyone. If simplicity is your prerogative but calming the appearance of redness is your concern, give SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Gel a go. While it looks like a serum bottle, the formula can actually replace (or supplement) your moisturizer. The formula, which includes hyaluronic acid, cucumber and thyme, helps to minimize visible redness and signs of discoloration.
Toner is a must-have in most regimens, so swapping in an option that nourishes and soothes extra sensitive skin should be a no-brainer. With a milky texture and nourishing formula, this product helps hydrate and replenish even the most sensitive skin.
