Whether caused by acne, rosacea or the climate, redness and irritation can be calmed from the inside out.
On your own, vitamins and supplements rich in anti-inflammatory antioxidants (like licorice, green tea and aloe vera) can reduce redness.
Your doctor, on the other hand, can treat a red patch with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments. Also known as photorejuventation or photo facials, IPL contracts the blood vessels to reduce redness. In some cases, significant improvement can be achieved after just one session. Keep in mind, however, that IPL may cause mild swelling or additional redness for a few hours.
