New Momma Mayhem: A beautiful blush is typically thought to be a good thing… but many new mothers find themselves with red, aggravated skin due in part to a killer combo of hormones, broken blood vessels, long hours and sensitive skin. Try creating a simple skin care regimen that helps soothe and heal if you’re short on time:
- Start Protecting â€“ After gently cleansing skin with a calming cleanser, smooth a soothing moisturizer over inflamed skin that includes SPF. Sun can aggravate angry post-partum complexion, so protection is key.
We Recommend: Purpose Redness Reducing SPF 30 Moisturizer, which wonâ€™t clog pores, is hypoallergenic and spreads on quickly with just a few pumps.
- Balance Blush- After your skin is cleansed and hydrated, try using a green-toned cream or concealer to counteract and reduce redness (great for spot treating certain areas!)
We Recommend: Eucerin Redness Relief Redness Reducing Concealer â€“ is a miracle pen filled with green cream that can be used over or under makeup and fits easily into any purse. Best of all? It makes a fantastic pimple cover-up too!
