Growing up in Florida, I never let myself tan. I was the opposite of what you'd expect from a person living near those bright, sunny beaches. I choose to stay inside rather than to brave the hot outdoors. "Why?", you ask? Because I had one, pestering enemy, The Sun. Every morning as I walked out of my house, I felt a warmth rise in my cheeks. Right away, my face would break out in a bright red flush, and I'd spend the day looking like I'd just got caught committing a felony. It was so uncomfortable that I wanted to hide away from the sun’s rays and cover-up. If like me, you suffer from redness on your face, it could be a result of conditions ranging from flushing to rosacea (which should be seen and treated by a dermatologist). It is easy to get caught up trying all of the typical drugstore products to remedy the issue, but I realized that these products tended to be "one size fits all." I needed a custom solution with the best organic skin care ingredients for my needs. Below, I've compiled a list of some great recommendations and the science behind how these ingredients work.

Arnica Montana Flower Extract

Arnica montana is a fantastic flower used for its medicinal properties. Also known as wolf's bane, it is typically used for swelling and bruising. But that's not all it can do! Many people have seen the benefits in using Arnica M. for redness on the face from acne. It has antiseptic properties that kill bacteria that can build-up on your skin, reducing redness and preventing acne before it even hits.

Peony Extract

Like Arnica M., Peony extract not only helps fight bacteria, but it also soothes the skin. It is used as a powerful, hydrating skin care ingredient to reduce inflammation and treat red and irritated acne. Another great benefit? It's anti-aging properties! As skin ages, it also becomes much more sensitive and may be more prone to redness, peony extract can help reduce these signs leaving you with a healthy and radiant glow.

Hemp Seed Oil

You'll definitely love this one in your skincare routine. Hemp seed oil is a gentle ingredient used on all skin types. It is known for having omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. It has been used to treat redness caused by dermatitis, or irritation. Have trouble with redness on the skin around your eyes this allergy season? This can help!

Thyme Essential Oil

Using essential oils for skin can be very beneficial. Essential oils can be quickly absorbed, and have an enormous list of benefits when used correctly. Another excellent remedy for acne, thyme essential oil protects and heals rashes, burns, and skin irritation caused by eczema and psoriasis. It can even help fade scars! While you’re battling redness, you will definitely want this beneficial, bacteria-killing ingredient on your side.

With the right combination of quality ingredients, you don't have to settle for anything but that perfect, glowing skin. Don't let anything stop you from walking out of the house feeling like you can conquer the world.
