Dr. Bailey Wants You to Know
Chronic facial redness is common, and two of the leading causes are rosacea and facial seborrheic dermatitis (facial dandruff). I've treated thousands of dermatology patients with these conditions in 25+ years of practice. I've found that the best skin care ingredients for controlling their facial redness are pyrithione zinc and the combination of high concentration green tea antioxidants with caffeine. My Facial Redness Relief Kit - Oil Free contains the highest available amounts of these important ingredients in products that are soothing and non-irritating so your skin can heal.
Why do rosacea and seborrhea cause 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. 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 can cause your skin to be red and inflamed.
In addition to causing facial redness, these germs sometimes play a role in causing pimples. The skin yeast can cause skin flaking along the sides of your nose, chin and in your eyebrows, too; it's 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.
Why do Dr. Bailey's Facial Redness Relief Kits work for the most common causes of facial redness
My Calming Zinc ® Soap contains a full 2% pyrithione zinc to help control the number of these pityrosporum yeast germs. In my observation, it might even decrease 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. It's rich in naturally anti-inflammatory ingredients including oats, calendula and shea butter. It's also oil- free because the olive oil and shea butter are turned into soap and glycerin by the 'magic' of the soap-making process called saponification. This means I recommend it for my acne prone patients, too.
After washing with Calming Zinc ® Soap, apply the Replenix CF Cream to your facial skin and notice how your skin feels instantly soothed! I've depended on Replenix CF Cream for years in my dermatology practice and for my own skin too. It's loaded with green tea polyphenol antioxidants; a full 500 cups of green tea antioxidants go into each ounce of cream. When mixed with caffeine the results are near miraculous for calming facial inflammation. Quieting facial inflammation will allow your skin to heal and your redness to subside.
