There are many reasons why we might experience facial redness and some of these will be temporary and others more long lasting in nature. Redness from sun damage for example is usually temporary, whereas conditions such as rosacea are harder to treat. Whatever the cause of the redness on your face this can be helped with good natural skincare and a nourishing diet.
There are many reasons why your face may be red. It could be due to weather conditions, a skin condition, or even just a coincidence of factors. Whatever the reason, there are ways to calm facial redness and bring your skin back to its normal state.
If your facial redness is more of a sudden symptom, such as from being hot or sunburnt then one way to calm facial redness is by using a cold compress. This can be done by taking a clean cloth and soaking it in cold water. Once the cloth is soaked, apply it to the affected area for a few minutes. The cold temperature will help to constrict blood vessels and reduce inflammation.
Another way to reduce facial redness is by using topical treatments. If you are prone to redness on the face then for everyday skincare needs, we always recommend using gentle face products such as Nakin’s Natural Range, as it is made without parabens, retinoids, synthetic vitamin C, artificial colour and fragrance.

How Diet Can Calm Redness
If you are one of the many people who suffer from facial redness, you know how frustrating it can be. You may feel like you have tried everything to get rid of it, but nothing seems to work. Luckily, as well as using topical treatments there is another easy method that may help, which is changing your diet to nourish skin internally.
There are certain foods that can trigger facial redness, so avoiding these may help lessen the problem. For example, spicy foods or those high in acidity can cause the blood vessels in your face to dilate, which leads to redness. Other common triggers include alcohol, processed foods, and sugar.
In addition to avoiding triggers, there are certain foods that may help calm facial redness. These include anti-inflammatory foods such as salmon, avocado, and green leafy vegetables. Omega-3 fatty acids, found in fish and certain plant oils, are also known to help reduce inflammation.
If you are struggling with facial redness, using nourishing face products and changing your diet may be the key to finding relief. However, if it continues to be a problem then talk to your doctor or dermatologist for expert medical advice.
