Do you suffer from rosacea or other skin conditions that lead to continued facial redness? Here’s a review of a new product to consider. SkinMedica, the cosmeceutical skincare line created by dermatologist Dr. Richard Fitzpatrick, has recently launched a new product that can help deal with embarrassing redness, sensitivity, irritation and even sunburn. SkinMedica Redness Relief CalmPlex ($80) reduces the appearance of visible redness by addressing the underlying causes, all the while helping to promote healthy skin.
Clinical studies show Redness Relief CalmPlex reduces the appearance of acute, UV-induced and chronic visible redness in as early as two weeks, with continued improvement over time.
It does so through its exclusive CalmPlex™(4-Ethoxybenzaldehyde) ingredient, which is the first and only complex proven to inhibit the release of a key natural vasodilator, prostaglandin E2.
The redness cream also includes Vitamin B3 (niacinamide), which works to restore the skin’s barrier function by increasing moisture content and reducing transepidermal water loss.
A rich cream, Redness Relief CalmPlex is formulated for twice daily application on the face, neck and décolleté. It can even be applied as needed throughout the day to particularly sensitive or irritated areas. A very temporary tingling may occur with extremely sensitive skin, which generally decreases over time with continued usage.
