We tend to overlook products that are equipped with soothing and calming properties, focusing more on products that deliver targeted treatments. While having specific serums and ampoules in our beauty stash are essential, it is also important to arm our routine with products that calm the skin. They essentially aid in relieving redness, reduce skin irritation and tackle problems such as acne (or ‘mask-ne‘ for some of us today).
For one, we can’t escape the effects of pollution inflicted on our skin – the constant exposure to hidden and harmful airborne pollutants weaken our skin barrier. Stress, anxiety and mandatory mask-wear may also affect our skin adversely, leading to roughness, breakouts and dullness. So when negative side effects like irritation kick in, opt for calming products that can soothe and rebalance skin to get your complexion glistening in no time.
