12 Redness-Reducing Products That Do What They Say featured image

Growing up with rosacea and middle school bullies pointing out it looked like I was “wearing too much blush” sent me reaching for redness-reducing products the first chance I got. Now that I’m more knowledgeable about the skin-care world, I’m able to pinpoint the ingredients and products that actually do what they promise and promote a more even skin tone.

This recent launch from Lancer is inspired by in-office procedures, so you know it’s good. It helps visibly reduce redness from inflammation, vasodilation, skin irritation, and sunburn right before your eyes. The soothing manuka honey, centella asiatica extract and eperua bark extract are to thank for a clearer complexion.

This formula boasts anti-aging and redness-reducing benefits in one silky serum. Hundreds of glowing reviews make this product a hero in the redness-reducing category.

Tula Calming Vitamin B Serum ($48)

Although this serum is formulated without fragrance, it has a refreshing scent, but that’s not the best part. Ginger, aloe, cucumber and oat provide short-term redness relief, while probiotic extracts get to work on skin texture and resilience. Not to mention, there are four types of vitamin B to protect skin against irritants.

PCA Skin Anti-Redness Serum ($69)

Say goodbye to flushed skin and say hello to a more even complexion. This clinical combination of botanicals and nutrients helps reduce inflammation, redness and hypersensitivity to external aggressors. If you have damaged or broken capillaries, don’t fret. The caper and red algae extracts can repair the damage and help boost circulation and improve skin tone.

Tower 28 Beauty SOS Intensive Redness Relief Serum ($34)

This lightweight, pH-balancing serum is especially perfect for summer heat-induced flushing and sunburn that’s tinted your cheeks. It visibly reduces redness and irritation and promotes clearer, happier skin.

Clinique Redness Solutions Daily Relief Cream ($56)

Growing up, I swore by Clinique products from my mom’s beauty shelf—and they still hold up. The brand has a Redness Solutions lineup you could follow, but if you opt for just one product, make it this one. It rapidly soothes skin with redness and blotchiness.

La Roche-Posay Rosaliac AR Intense ($42)

La Roche-Posay is well known for its soothing products (read: it cured my retinol irritation), so it’s no surprise they have a great option for redness reduction. This hydrating serum features ambophenol, neurosensine and light reflectors to calm visible redness.
