Q: Why is my skin is turning pinkish-red in some spots?!

A wide variety of things can cause redness to appear on the surface of the skin, including: spicy foods, excessive heat, stress, hormones, environmental aggressors, cosmetics, skin care products, and the list goes on. Understanding why the redness is appearing can be a challenge, so stop for a minute and take a good look in the mirror. What do you see? Is it just redness or is there more going on?

How to Soothe and Prevent Red Skin
Don’t fret! There are several ways to reduce redness and prevent irritation – even for the most sensitive skin!

Approximately 52% of women and 38% of men have self-diagnosed sensitive skin¹. Dermatologists classify sensitive skin as skin that has pustules, bumps or skin erosion and can be very dry, not properly protecting nerve endings within the skin. Genetic factors like age, gender and race play a role in causing skin reactions and therefore sensitivities can vary from person to person. Sensitive skin types can also have a tendency toward blushing for various reasons.

Whether it’s a sporadic irritation or a year-round sensitivity, MyChelle has designed the perfect products to ease inflammation and restore hydration in the most delicate skin.
