Paula's Choice tends to fly under the radar from other trendy brands, but give this woman a try, because she's good. PC is popular for its 2% salicylic acid treatment, so this exfoliant is a natural next product to try – with just 1% BHA, it's gentler than other exfoliants, but will still shed dead skin to leave you radiant, not red. Plus, the lotion formula vs. a serum is easier on sensitive skin. Try it!
2. Dr. Jart+ Mini Cicapair™ Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment
A K-beauty cult classic for a reason, the Dr. Jart+ color corrector can be used as a moisturizer, primer or foundation, depending on how much redness you're battling. Simply layer it on your skin and watch the redness disappear, thanks to a formula of tiger grass, or cica, that instantly soothes, calms and moisturizes. Try it!
Formulated specifically for sensitive skin, the ingredients in this moisturizer are meant to be as gentle as possible so your barrier stays intact and un-irritated. A simple combo of hyaluronic acid, ceramides and allantoin work together to hydrate, lock in that moisture and repair from within. Try it!
4. Hero. Rescue Balm +Red Correct
This cream does what it says it will: correct any redness. To be used on its own or under makeup, dab a little on your most-affected areas and watch the redness melt away! It's all thanks to a green tint that works in a flash. Try it!
5. Hero. Superlight Sunscreen SPF 30
Another Hero. product I personally can't get enough of, this SPF is super lightweight, which is what I'm always looking for in a daily sunscreen, and comes out unmistakably green, a redness-correcting must. Nothing better than starting my makeup with a balanced complexion. Try it!
6. Peach & Lily Redness Relief Soothing Serum
If you want to get intentional about healing your redness-prone skin, a leave-in serum is something you should be seriously considering. This one focuses on strengthening and hydrating your skin using ingredients like hyaluronic acid, artemisia and panthenol, so that it naturally stays calm over time. No angry skin, no redness! Try it.
7. La Roche-Posay Toleriane Rosaliac AR Redness Reducing Face Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin
There's no messing around with this product. While the moisturizer is formulated with color-correcting green pigment for instant redness relief, it's also packed with neurosensine, an active molecule with soothing and anti-aging properties, so it works against redness in a long-term capacity, too. Try it!
8. The INKEY List SuperSolutions 10% Azelaic Serum Redness Relief Solution
Our favorite budget brand takes redness from another angle: azelaic acid, an acne-fighting agent that also acts as an antioxidant to lessen the effects of free radicals. By combating elements that cause lots of inflammation (and, thus, redness), the serum acts as a salve and leaves a smooth complexion behind. Try it!
