Red and blotchy skin - Tips from Roxanne

Hey Smart beauty, 
Red spots on your face, a burning sensation, itching and / or flakes? Many people are shocked when they suddenly suffers from sensitive skin. But, don't worry, we can tackle this together. I will explain to you step by step how to do this...   

 
What are red spots on the skin?     
You can naturally have sensitive skin, but most often it is caused by external factors such as: 
  • Temperature changes 
  • Excessive use of soap 
  • Pollution 
  • UV-radiation and sun 
  • Your lifestyle: when you smoke or drink alcohol, it can throw your skin out of balance. 
  • Skin aging: when the skin ages, it will also become thinner and therefore more sensitive. In addition, young children can often suffer from sensitive skin. 
  • Depilation 
Red spots on the face may be red bumps, blisters or inflamation. In most cases, the cause is an unhealthy or disturbed skin barrier. 
 
Some tips for treating and preventing red spots on your face: 
1. Gently cleanse the skin    

Make sure you don't wash your skin with too hot water. This accelerates the drying of the skin. The ideal temperature for a shower or bath is 37 degrees. In addition, use a product specially formulated to cleanse dry/sensitive skin. LOOkX Amazing cleansing balm soothes, hydrates and cleanses the skin, while special active ingredients restore the skin barrier.

2. Restire the skin barrier 

The surface layer of the skin forms a protective shield between the outside world and your body. The fatty substances between these cells form an insulation layer that keeps moisture in and unwanted substances out. If this layer does not function properly, allergens can enter the skin and cause a reaction. LOOkX Balance cream contains a bioactive ingredient that restores the skin barrier in the short term, while omega fatty acids replenish the insulation layer.

3. Calm and protect  

A skin with a lowered resistance always responds to external and internal stimuli. Uses a cream, fluid or oil to restore and instantly soothe the skin barrier. LOOkX Balance oil is a real fire extinguisher! This oil immediately reduces redness and swelling, and forms a protective shield on the skin when used daily.

4. Ensure optimal hydration  

Better safe than sorry! The better hydrated the skin is, the more resilient it will be. Dry skin is more likely to have red spots than well-hydrated skin. Use the LOOkX O2 Relax eye & face mask for a weekly moisture boost and your skin will glow like never before.

5. Sun protection   

I don't think we need to tell you that you have to protect your skin from harmful influences of UV-radiation on a daily basis. But did you know that the blue light from your digital devices can make the skin hypersensitive and cause red spots?

Particulate matter in the atmosphere (pollution) can also oxidize the protective layer of the skin and aggravate redness and sensitivity.

Use the LOOkX Smart 4-in-1 protection primer daily..This primer protects your skin against infrared, blue light, air pollution and skin aging.
