Chronic facial redness is common, and two of the leading causes are rosacea and facial seborrheic dermatitis (facial dandruff). My Facial Redness Relief Kits contain dermatologist recommended products that are proven to relieve and calm facial redness. I've treated thousands of dermatology patients with these conditions in my 25+ years of practice. During that time I've found that the best skin care ingredients for controlling facial redness are pyrithione zinc and the combination of high concentration green tea antioxidants with caffeine.
Dr. Bailey Wants You to Know
This Facial Redness Relief Kit contains the highest available amounts of green tea anti-oxidants and pyrithione zinc in soothing products so that your skin can heal. Calming Zinc ® Bar Soap contains a full 2% pyrithione zinc and the Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy Cream contains the antioxidants from 500 cups of brewed green tea in each ounce of cream!
If you're uncertain about which of the two kits to try (either this one, or the Facial Redness Relief Kit - Oil Free), get this one because it's the Redness Relief Kit that I use most in my dermatology practice for my patients with facial redness.
Why do my Facial Redness Relief Kits work for the most common causes of facial redness?
When you have rosacea and/or facial seborrheic dermatitis, your pores have more pityrosporum yeast germs in them. If you have rosacea then we know that your pores may also have an increased number of demodex mites too.
Everyone has some of these two 'germs' in their pores, but if you have rosacea and/or facial dandruff then your pores may be pretty crowded with these germs, which in turn contributes to facial redness and inflammation.
Along with their contribution to facial redness, these germs can cause pimples. The pityrosporum skin yeast can also cause skin flaking along the sides of your nose, chin and in your eyebrows. This flaking red facial skin is often mistaken as 'dry skin' but it's really part of the inflammation that's making your skin red. Controlling these germs helps your skin heal.
My Calming Zinc ® Soap contains a full 2% pyrithione zinc to help control the number of these pityrosporum yeast germs, and possibly even the mites in your pores too. My patients wash with it once or twice a day, and invariably their facial redness improves. There's less inflammation, fewer pimples and less flaky scale. Calming Zinc ® is a natural and handmade olive oil soap base that is rich in naturally anti-inflammatory ingredients including oats, calendula and shea butter.
It's also oil-free because the olive oil and shea butter added at the beginning of the soap making process are turned into soap and glycerin by the 'magic' of this process (called saponification). This means it’s the best anti-yeast soap for people with acne and oily skin too.
The Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy is also rich in hyaluronic acid to hydrate and rebalance your skin. You’ll notice how your skin feels intantly soothed after you apply it! I've depended on the combination of green tea and caffeine in this Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy for years in my dermatology practice and for my own skin, too. It’s a hefty load of green tea polyphenol antioxidants. When mixed with caffeine these polyphenol antioxidants yield a nearly miraculous calming effect on facial inflammation. This quieting of your facial inflammation will allow your skin to heal and your redness to subside.
