Not getting enough sleep? Stayed out in the sun too long? Used a product that caused an adverse reaction?
All of these and more can cause your skin to become inflamed and irritated. Thankfully, there are many current skincare trends can help!
In the end of 2021 and into the beginning of 2022, we are seeing everyone from influencers to new mothers increasing their interest in reducing puffiness in their faces. Products rich in ingredients like witch hazel, antioxidants, aloe and more can help clear this pesky reaction. There are so many amazing topical creams and serums that are specially formulated for this purpose.
Another trend we are seeing to reduce everyday inflammation is Gua Sha. A Gua Sha is a small piece of jade stone that you can glide across areas of your face to decrease inflammation and puffiness. These scrapers are quickly gaining more popularity than its sister product, the jade roller. Yet both are great tools to incorporate into your anti-inflammatory skincare routine. Increasing blood flow and circulation in the face by using these tools can cause your skin to appear more youthful and your face to be more sculpted.
Skincare professionals also recommend popping these tools in the refrigerator overnight before using them in the mornings. The coolness of the stone can help tighten blood vessels, therefore, reducing redness in the face.
If you haven’t already hopped on the anti-inflammatory trend, we totally suggest you do. Using products and tools uniquely made for reducing puffiness and inflamed skin can make all the difference in your daily skincare routine.
