Keeping redness at bay over the Holidays.


The festivities of the Holiday season are a minefield for people who suffer from skin redness. In this article, we highlight some of the key redness triggers, and offer suggestions on how to keep redness at bay for an even and luminous complexion over the Holidays.

Key factors that cause skin redness during the festive season.

  • Cold and harsh winter climate contrasted with indoor heating
  • Alcohol, especially red wine, can exacerbate a flushed complexion
  • Spicy foods
  • Stress

All in all, these triggers are nearly impossible to avoid over the festive season. Fortunately, there are treatments and at-home solutions that can help your skin weather the storm calmly and clearly.

Cutis IPL Photorejuvenation for an even skin tone.

Using light therapy to rejuvenate the skin is a gold standard treatment to abate redness. With a Cutis IPL Photorejuvenation treatment, dilated capillaries are targeted and destroyed by heat energy, revealing a more even skin tone. The treatment is non-invasive and requires minimal recovery. The skin may look flushed and slightly swollen after the treatment. With a series of 6 monthly treatments, the skin is noticeably smoother and the pores are refined; Cutis IPL Photorejuvenation improves the overall clarity and luminosity of the skin tone.

For people who are diagnosed with rosacea, regular treatments provide ongoing benefits to manage their condition and keep redness at bay.
