Skin redness needn’t compromise your radiance. In this post you will find advice on the best anti-redness skin care ingredients and we will show you how to build an organic anti-redness serum and moisturiser routine that restores a balanced and even complexion to dry and easily irritated skin.
Calming redness: ingredients to avoid
If your skin is prone to redness, you should try to avoid the following in your skin care routine, as these ingredients can be drying and may irritate skin that’s prone to redness.
5 of the best natural anti redness skin care actives
The best anti-redness skin care ingredients are natural, non-irritating actives that soothe and restore the skin barrier.
Apricot Stem Cells are a key ingredient in our Age Defy+ Soothing Anti-Redness Oil Serum and can be relied on to calm red and inflamed skin. Because they can increase the skin’s level of tolerance and improve microcirculation, these anti-redness plant cells help to reduce skin irritation and restore an even skin tone to redness-prone skin.
Sunflower Oil Unrefined organic sunflower seed oil is a botanical base oil that’s bursting with benefits for skin prone to redness. When cold-pressed into golden oil, sunflower seeds secrete fatty acids and Vitamin E which can calm, soften and protect the skin barrier. A gentle skin care oil that’s even suitable for ultra-sensitive skin, Sunflower Oil’s anti-inflammatory properties make it an ideal skin care ingredient for skin that’s prone to redness.
Camellia Seed Oil has similar properties to Sunflower Oil and sinks seamlessly into the skin without feeling greasy. An exceptional natural emollient it soothes and balances the skins texture whilst slowing down the skin’s rate of trans epidermal water loss (TEWL). Like Sunflower Oil, it is also rich in Oleic Acids, Linoleic Acids, Vitamin E and other skin-beneficial minerals. It also contains Squalene – an oil naturally produced by the skin which is typically lower in complexions that are prone to redness, eczema and irritation.
Squalane is an ultra-gentle anti-inflammatory emollient and is an ideal anti-redness skin care ingredient. This protective ingredient converts to Squalene once applied to the skin and then binds itself to moisture to form a seal on the outer layer of the skin. This supports the skin barrier and protects sensitive skin against redness and dehydration.
Sweet Almond Oil is another anti-redness oil that we love. Cold-pressed from Almond Tree Kernels this soothing, light oil is slowly absorbed and helps the skin to balance its loss and absorption of moisture to deliver long-lasting defence against skin dryness and irritation. Rich in Vitamin E, we use Sweet Almond Oil in our Age Defy+ Soothing Anti-Redness Oil Serum.

Our best anti-redness cleanser
Sometimes ingredients in your face wash or cleanser can aggravate easily irritated skin. Perfume, ethyl alcohol, soap and methylisothiazolinone are just a few of the ingredients that can cause redness.
We suggest cleansing skin that’s prone to redness with our Scent Free Cleanser & Make-Up Remover.
Free from skin-drying alcohols (ethanol/ethyl alcohol) and made with a blend of calming Calendula and moisturising Shea Butter, this effective anti-redness cleanser hydrates as it cleanses to leave skin feeling soft, fresh and calm.
