I used a new product and my skin is red and irritated

Solution: Reduce irritation with soothing products

  1. Keep your skin routine simple. When the skin is inflamed, you’ll only want to use basic products like a cleanser, and moisturizer. Hold off on using any treatment serums, as these contain high concentrations of performance ingredients that may be too active for your skin at this time. Drink lots of water and stop using the new product for 5 to 7 days. Try again slowly in a week by using for a shorter period of time every other day.
  2. Apply a cooling gel-based mask. Gels tend to retain a cool temperature. When applied, they will lower the skin’s internal temperature to help aid in decreasing heat and redness. Additionally, gels deliver water-based hydration deep within the skin.  Apply a thick layer of pure aloe vera gel (like our Hydrogel or Quench) and leave it on for 20 minutes. When rinsed off, the skin will look and feel calmer.
  3. Mix a pea-size of hydrocortisone or Benadryl cream in with your moisturizer. The addition of this over-the-counter cream may work to reduce swelling, itching, and redness.
