Sometimes I feel like my skin is a sour patch kid.. you know, first they’re sour, then they’re sweet. Then they’re sour again, then sweet again, and the cycle goes on. My skin can be super temperamental. Everything will be going really well and then bam– breakouts and irritation. So since my skin likes to test me, I’ve learned how to soothe and calm it down so it can go back to being sweet and normal.
6 Products That Calm Irritated Skin
Roots & Flowers Detox Mineral Mask
With ingredients like activated charcoal, bentonite clay, kelp, and chamomile flowers, it’s no surprise that this mask is super soothing. I like to apply this all over (or spot treat), and then remove it with a damp, warm muslin cloth. The warmth of the muslin cloth loosens the mask so it melts off easily, and you don’t have to scrub it off, which will only further vex your skin.
Mario Badescu Facial Spray
This facial spray is effective, while also being inexpensive– you just can’t beat that. It contains aloe leaf juice, an ingredient known to help soothe irate skin. Spritz this all over your face, let it sink in, and do its job!
Lush Fresh Pharmacy Cleanser
I recently discovered that I’m allergic to shell fish– a discovery I’m very unhappy about because I love(d) shrimp– and let me just say the hives that erupted on my face and chest were the least pleasant thing I’ve ever experienced. The product that helped me the most was this Lush Fresh Farmacy cleanser. It contains calamine powder, an ingredient famous for it’s soothing qualities. I had one of those “ooh-ahh” relief moments once I applied this and the itchy irritation subsided.
Lush Tea Tree Water
Tea tree oil is a god send if you have irritated skin and this tea tree water feels amazing! It’s a product I constantly repurchase because it’s just so good at soothing the skin and also helps keep your skin blemish free.
Fresh Rose Mask
Another ingredient that has been used for ages because of it’s soothing and toning properties are roses. This rose mask has a gel formula so it’s very light and refreshing on the skin. It also contains cucumber extract and aloe vera, two more ingredients that fight irritation and help soothe the skin.
Belif True Cream Aqua Bomb
Sticking with the gel theme, this gel-cream moisturizer is great at softening the skin and cooling it at the same time. The last thing you want is to have dry and irritated skin so try out this moisturizer. The cooling sensation you feel on your skin when you apply this is very unique, but so satisfying when your skin is throwing a temper tantrum.
