How To Deal With Hot Flushes After Waking Up From The Stuffy And Hot Conditions?
I am currently using a beauty doctor’s cream, initially I just don’t use red, why is there no problem? But yesterday I slept in a stuffy condition and the heat was no wind after I woke up my face turned red and even kept red and to this day my face is still red especially on the cheeks. How to handle it?
Hello Diyah Ayu,
Redness on the skin after using a topical product on the face can arise due to irritation of the cream ingredients or it can also be a chemical peeling process (thinning the skin) that you want to achieve from the ingredients contained in the cream. Some people who have sensitive skin types are more prone to redness on the skin, especially when replacing skin care products used or using creams with concentrations of ingredients that are acidic / peeling.
Besides redness on the facial skin after the use of the cream can also be due to an allergic reaction to the ingredients of the cream. Allergic reactions are usually accompanied by complaints of swelling in the face, appearing bumps, and dominant itching. Patients usually also have a history of previous allergies with the use of creams that use the same ingredients.
Complaints of facial redness can be accompanied by peeling skin, burning sensation on the face, pustules appear. Redness on the face due to the use of this cream can generally be reduced if the use of the product is stopped. If exfoliation / peeling is the purpose of giving the cream, then you should ask again the rules for using the cream should be. Maybe it should be applied lightly (not thick), only used on certain parts of the face, or only used at night to then immediately wash your face in the morning (may not be exposed to sunlight).
The skin on the cheeks tends to be thinner so that the blood vessels are clearly visible in that area and will appear redder if irritation occurs or there is an inflammatory reaction. To reduce redness of the skin due to the use of a new type of cream you should consider the following tips:
Apply the cream lightly first or apply only a certain part then observe the reaction that occurs on the skin before applying it to the entire face.
Always use the cream in accordance with the instructions on the packaging or doctor's instructions. Night cream is only for the night, morning cream for the morning.
Wash your face and clean your face of the remaining cosmetics before using the cream and after using the cream in the morning
Use a moisturizer that suits your skin type. Ingredients such as aloe vera / aloe vera can help soothe reddish skin.
Always use sunscreen
If redness is very disturbing, you should consult again with the doctor who handles / gives the cream. It might be worth considering using a more creamy and not too irritating cream
Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
