High Achiever: Renew complexion

Aging skin will often appear red and splotchy, you may see this appearing in your late 30’s to early 40’s.

You will spot this happening on your face, neck, chest and arms. Sometime it appears when triggered or sometime the red complexion never goes away, sometimes getting worse.

Curious as to why it happens? There are a number of reasons:

Sun damage: Sun exposure can alter the appearance of blood vessels under the skin, creating an overall reddish hue. UV rays penetrate the skin and alter your cellular DNA, producing genetic mutations that can lead to changes in your skin’s texture and colour.

Stress: Stress can have a significant impact on your body and skin being your largest organ, it’s no surprise that it is affected. Stress hormones are responsible for your fight or flight response boosting the body heat, leading to flushed or even blotchy skin.

Face Plus also offer a facial specifically targeting stressed skin, read more here.

Alcohol: A glass of wine or two a day not only helps you relax but it also alters your brain ability to regulate vascular control. This causes more blood to rush to the surface of your skin. The more alcohol you drink, the more redness will appear.

Skin products: Certain ingredients can irritate your skin causing inflammation. Mild, milk bases cleansers, fragrance free products and products designed for sensitive skin will be ideal if you have any redness present. Read more here.

Prevention is key, past sun damage has done it’s damage but there are ways to reduce the redness too.
