treatment for skin redness

Skin redness can be caused by a number of different factors including allergens, changes in temperature, age, genetics, hormonal factors, dryness, pre-existing diseases and lifestyle. In addition, skin redness can be triggered by sun exposure, making sun protection key for this skin type. 

Skin prone to redness can also be highly sensitive and can be aggravated by sun protection products which means a huge number of your clients will leave this essential product out of their skin care regime. If your clients need sun protection to manage skin redness but are unable to use it, this can be a huge problem!
