10 Products to Soothe a Red Face

10 Products to Soothe a Red Face

In 2013 Cali-girl Calgary Avansino, now an expat in London contributing to British Vogue, penned a feature on her experience with rosacea. A clean-living vegan who shops at farmer’s markets and works out regularly, Avansino had always enjoyed a fresh face until the sudden onset of rosacea in her thirties – when she was told that it’s a condition with “no known cure”.

Facial redness can occur at any time, and if it does it’s most unpleasant and frustrating. For Avansino, probiotics and lasers helped her skin clear. As you work out what’s best for your skin, discover 10 products that offer instant relief.
